Selling to Celebrities

I read with interest a recent article about an artist whose work was collected by Michael Jackson. Jackson was so happy with the way the artist painted that he further commissioned paintings of himself Now  in Art Career Experts we do not critique anyone’s art not judge it. That’s not our job.   In fact it [...]

The Artist Paycheck Group for marketing artists

Want some immediate interaction? Too shy to ask a question? Don’t be! I started a Yahoo Group almost 2 years ago to encourage members to bounce marketing ideas off one another!
