Something I need to remember right now (and always) while I’m taking Make Art that Sells (MATS):
Where I am right now is just a stepping stone. It’s so inspiring to see all kinds of people getting their artwork licensed because of MATS. It’s a dream of mine! Although it gets a little discouraging every time I don’t hear back from a company I have sent artwork to, I have to keep in mind that where I am right now is a lot farther than I was a year ago today. And where will I be a year from now? 5 years from now? It all kind of comes full circle to the “5” book by Dan Zadra that made me quit my waitressing job in 2011 and open a shop. (here is a link to that story) Which led to Polka Dot Mitten. What a weird and wonderful and crazy life it is!
Here is a link to the March gallery for MATS: See if you can spot my Jell-O pattern!
