Art Licensing! (click photos to see them larger)
Surtex fires me up! I am going to start with my biggest take-a-way because I know you all are busy! Have you heard about ArtLicensingShow.com? It is Cherish Flieder's amazing site opening June 2. Founding Artists members can start signing up on May 27th - THAT is soon! No matter your role in the art licensing industry, this website is for you. It is 5 years in the making and I am very excited about it! Read about it and sign up for email updates here: http://redcarpet.artlicensingshow.com
I got to meet Cherish - finally, and what fun we had at the Art of Licensing meet up! (artoflicensing.com) There were two drawings and ARTISTS! It was loads of fun talking with so many of you. We need to get together more often - it is so good for my soul :-D I had a few artists sign my Annie's Doodlebugz logo backpack including the fabulous Ronnie Walter. She has a new book: "License to Draw: How I built a fun career in art licensing and you can too!" ...I didn't want her to sign my iPad since I have the eBook version. :-)
Lastly I have to give a shout out & a big THANK YOU to my Agents Lainey and Teresa - Parcai Designs. Because of all of their heavy lifting at Surtex (and through out the year!) I can connect with all of you :-)
Please share your Surtex experience with me! Thank you so much for stopping by.
