In the last couple months, about 30,000 items featuring my art have been sold to people all over the world. Prints, canvases, signs, cd covers, magazine covers, home decor items. All things with my licensed artwork. Thirty thousand is not really that much in the world of licensing and it is not really very much in the way of financial success. Visual artists make about as much licensing art as indie musicians do putting their music on Spotify. Licensing is good if you like it. It's that simple. I love it. I love working with manufacturers and designers, trend forecasting, and I love creative problem solving. Luckily (in non-injury times), I have a husband with a job and health insurance and while my income certainly helps pay the bills, it is not a gold mine.
Thank you to everyone who has been connecting with me and sharing your art joy with me the last few months. I will continue to offer Pay What You Can when I am able to, even as football season comes to a close soon.
