I think artists should create communities to support each other to have engaged followers that actually care about their work, (my username is @notkeerat so im creating a dm group and comment your username if you wanna be a part of it💗💗

1. To have large cohesive body of work (at least 20 polished complete pieces) 2. To have professional website 3. A lot of social media and frequently update 4. Seek out local opportunities first (if not known) 5. Have entrepreneurial mind set

What advice would be good for an insecure artist? My brother makes great art and he talks about selling prints, but he always finds ways to sabotage himself. "I need the best archival paper/ the best camera/ best scanner/ best laptop/ printer..." And once we help him he still feels is not good enough. About to give up on him!!!

The person in this video is TOO YOUNG and inexperienced to be teaching art.
adrienne gellman (11 months ago)
I know and artist named Danielle Edwards.His art has been featured in The New York Times Arts,The mail Online and Yahoo news on the main page.He also is being represented by a gallery in Brooklyn NY.HE DOESN'T HAVE HIS OWN WEBPAGE.HE ONLY HAS A GALLERY ON FACEBOOK.JEAN MICHEL BASQUIAT became a very famous artist when he was in his early twenties.HE HAD NO ART TRAINING.HIS PAINTINGS SELL FOR MORE THAN A MILLION DOLLARS EACH NOW.ONLY FAME IS WHAT MAKES ART WORTH MONEY.

Thank you so much, you sound so bright! Very useful advice, so important to have an entrepreneurial mindset, i think it's still hard to embrace for some that art and business can and must go hand in hand - unless we want to be starving artists and complain about the world being unfair ;) Have a lovely day xx

Hi happy, I have tried to submit my art to a cafe shop and an artist gallery, they didn't want them. Don't know what I am doing wrong. I don't understand it because many people say they love my art, but it's too expensive. I see others price their art at $1000 and above...

Great video! I don't know if you picked the minimum number of portfolio pieces off the top of your head, but I've been told through one of my art marketing groups that 18-20 pieces is definitely the minimum for a portfolio. Interestingly, it seems that there's a mental shift with anyone viewing the portfolio, that they automatically consider you to be a "serious" artist if you have at least that many pieces, and this causes them to feel comfortable spending money on your art. Also, the final point about being an entrepreneur is great. I'm hearing that more and more, and I'm really liking this shift from the old thinking of waiting to be discovered, to one where you can take command of your own career and go out there and find work and collectors on your own. Plus, great that you mentioned the business side of things, as that winds up being about 50% of what working artists spend their time doing!

Hey did you made your own website or did you paid for it? Also please do a video on how you record videos and how you edit them. Your videos are so smooth and relaxing.
LinkEX (1 year ago)
Actual title topic starts at 2:39. Here's the *TL;DW*: 1. (2:50) Acquire dedication to your skill. Create a decent reference portfolio in the process. 2. (3:30) Have a professional website for contact. 3. (3:50) Frequently post in social media for connecting with, and expanding your community 4. (4:20) Take baby steps. While unknown, look for local opportunities that are open and personal. 5. (5:50) Have an entrepreneur mindset. Being an artist alone won't do; learn your market.

I'm quite young, (haven't graduated high school yet young) and I've just been thinking about commissions in general, but because of my age I'm quite conflicted over how to transfer money and ways to do it. I was thinking about PayPal as it is used quite often and seems to be a good option, but I'm wondering how it works and if it's worth it. Does anyone have any tips or ideas? I'd really appreciate it.

Hey there Happy, do you have a video that discusses how artists can find a theme to pursue in their work. I'm going through a block right now and that would be very helpfull. Thanks, :)
Mad Mush (1 year ago)
wow..❤
Ella Velyvis (1 year ago)
Your art is so amazing, I don't know how you do it. You're my favourite artist and you have done so many things for me and you have helped me improve in my art so much over the time I have been watching your videos, so I want to at least try to come up with a good idea for a video. I thought that maybe you could talk about the best art materials and techniques...? I don't know lol. ^-^
Paul Richmond (1 year ago)
Great advice, and I think it is awesome when artists are willing to share this kind of advice rather than keeping it to themselves. Kudos!

JALAYNE ATKINS (1 year ago)
your artistic skills are a pleasure to watch. your work has such a delicate beauty that is spread out across the body of your work causing the entire piece to be pleasing to the eye with no one part stealing the show and disrupting the peaceful balance of its whole. I swear the calming effect of your work is palpable. it's like coming upon a beautiful and secret little niche in a huge, busy tourist garden and resting within it, unseen, uninterrupted and unaffected by the noisy world outside it's haven. a place where the eye and the soul both soak up the charming ambience whilst simultaneously dancing a happy little jig. Bravo my dear. you are blessed with an extra dose of artistic magic also your voice and the commentary you provide in your videos is easy to listen to and full of good advice.

Thanks you for this! I love how you sell your prints too...My next art stop is to get a good shop on my website and become more organized with things like selling prints and producing prints. I see at an art fair once/year and I just got a solo show* into the biggest gallery in my city (the exhibition will be in February) which is a crazy challenge and huge blessing!!! I'm nervous and excited. Our city is 250,000 people so not a huge city but it's definitely the next step for me...I loved how much of what you talked about applies to artists every step of the way. They have two artists so I am the 2-d artist but the 3-d is a fundraiser so it's weird. Still working through how to word that :p

this was very interesting and helpful, your work is lovley :)
light lawliet (1 year ago)
Watched you print making v-log. What sort of printer do you use? And what do you think is better; getting prints at a printer shop or making them yourself? Your videos/advice are very inspiring by the way.
