I am watching this right now on Creative Live! It is called, Make Money Making Art with Ann Rea. If you watch it live, it is free, but you can also choose to purchase the entire two-day workshop. She is really great because she gets to the core of your deep meaning and vision. Check it out if you can!

Have you all seen this one? Definite food for thought : )

Hello Artist! I've been wanting to buy Photoshop for some time but it was a bit beyond my budget; I noticed they have a special sale going on- I wanted to share in case someone else has Photoshop on their "want" list.

Hey Jeremy,  I don't know where to get the most eyes.  Do you have Google Analytics on your website?  When I started seeing where people were coming from after they viewed my post was really interesting (and surprising).

And, Nathan has started a 48days art board on Pinterest. That's one fun way to get your art out. Pinterest has a lot of eyeballs and when an image takes off, it really soars!

Question for Illustrators and Artists and Everyone in the group:

I have illustrations (in infancy stages or in the process) that I would like to showcase.

Where are the best places on the web or elsewhere where I can get the most "eyeballs", chatter and interest in my work?

Hey Jocelyn!  Thought about your comment over the weekend.

Working as an artist can be oddly lonely at times. I know I love have hours of work time alone but I recognize when I'm craving people time; even if that means being in a Starbucks with people around. Lately another desire has come over me- to have meaningful conversations about several of my key interest points- a lot of them surround art, working as artist, growth, frustrations of artist-entrepreneur- among other things- and there aren't many people in my physical sphere of people I'm.  THAT can be a creative zapper. There's nothing quite like trying to work towards significant goals (at least for me) and feel like the odd one out.

That communication and connection via Artist Arise (and a few other artist communities I'm so happy to be a part of online) have helped fill the creative community gap. 

I might be reading in to what you are inferring, but that is where my thoughts led me!

Hope you had a lovely weekend and were able to do some creating, dreaming, and/or resting this weekend.

Deby, thanks for the article link.  I loved it; I'm including it on my links page this Friday.

hello, i miss you all. i need the creative conservation

Deby, those 18 Things are so spot on! I can relate to almost all of them!

As far as the video companies, I currently work with one, but we do mostly TV commercials, which are really not paying well unless you're at the national level. I do have access to all the equipment to make my own productions though. I just need to keep working on making a professional product.

Thanks for the encouragement!

Timmery, great idea to turn you're mistake into a special sale. Is it working? Were you able to recreate the order?  I ache with you, but this kind of stuff just happens. Life!

Dean, I would think video companies would be interested in your characters. Do you have an in road to pitch to them?

John, good thoughts - I agree!

Jeremy, I'm impressed with your work.
