A letter a day: D is for dark night

I love how my smiling, spooky tree turned out, thanks  in large part to this tree bark tutorial on deviantart: D-is-for-dark-night-valerie-bean-illustration

Here's another great art licensing resource: it's not free but it's a steal at just $2.99. It's Kate Harper's 20 Steps to Art Licensing, and it's another one of my favorite resources. It's a no-nonsense, straight to the point guide for breaking into art licensing. She literally lays out what you need to do in 20 concise steps. You really can't go wrong for $2.99. Kate also has a great blog with a list of companies that license art here.



A letter a day: B is for bones (plus a link to a great art licensing resource)

Every day, I'm convinced I can't, and every day, I do it. B-is-for-bones

I promised I would start sharing some of my favorite resources for art licensing, and here's the first one: How to Create a Sell Sheet for Artists eGuide by Natalie Timmons. It's free, it's concise, it's detailed, and it is incredibly useful; it's the best guide I've found for creating sell sheets for your art licensing collections. And did I mention it's FREE!?
