This is a complete guide for surface designers about how to license your art. If you are determine to see your art on fabric, homeware, fashion, stationery etc., then this is the ebook for you. Art licensing is a great way to make extra income for your creative business. Did you know there are at least 15 different ways to generate revenue through your art?
I'll be sharing everything I know about art licensing, which includes, how to price your work, how to pitch your portfolio to an art director like a boss, how to follow-up with art directors like an bad ass, how to negotiate with clients, plus, a BONUS chapter on how to develop your signature style + the power of a 100 days art challenge.
FULL DISCLOSURE: This book is based on my experience; so you should know, the strategies in this book are what works for me. Every surface designer will have their own way of licensing their work. Art licensing can be incredibly exciting and equally as frustrating because every company is different; every industry is different; and every contract is different. It's unique to every designer and their experience.
If you are brand new to the world of art licensing, and you've never opened Adobe Illustrator, I would highly recommend Bonnie Christine's Immersion Course. It was the foundation I needed to build my surface design career. The Immersion Course is an 8-weeks online course with videos, community and all the support you need to learn how to become a surface designer.
This ebook is perfect for existing surface designers who have completed the Immersion Course and needing that extra bit of direction and focus to get licensed.
