Artist Video Stories
What’s Your Art Licensing Story?
I often talk about how so many artists in licensing came to the industry in some odd and twisty way. “Tripped over speed bumps”, were snuck in the side door… very few deliberately said, “I want to license my art.” first and foremost.
I love to hear people’s stories! How they ended up doing whatever they are doing. Have they always done that? Did they grow up “knowing” that is what they wanted to do?
So I have a video project in mind and I’d LOVE for you to join in the fun. Any artist who submits a video will get a $20 coupon towards any eBook, Ask Call Replay, Art Licensing Mindset Series or Teleseminar from ArtLicensingInfo.com. There are a few rules to play… click here for submission details.
The videos are posted in the order received.
