I am a fantasy artist, medium is colored pencil with some ink. Years ago I printed out my art as greeting cards and sold them in stores and online. Didn't make a lot of money. I know a lot of fantasy artists and they have encouraged me to liscence my work to be used for all kinds of things like greeting cards, tee shirts, cups, calendars, books (I have actually had one of my mermaid pictures published in a book published through Ellen Million Graphics and Jessica Galbreth wrote the Foreward for it), coloring books, and a multitude of other items. I looking into liscencing and that made my head spin.... I will admit I don't really have a head for business.
I am one of those 'lucky' people who have fibromyalgia so I was always having to space my selling excursions. Then in 2010 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, had a lumpectomy, chemo, and radiation, add the 'chemo brain' to the' Fibro Fog' (these are side effects of the mentioned conditions which make your mind go blank a whole lot) that I already had and trying to figure out the business aspect is like riding the "Salt and Pepper" ride at the famous Ocean View Amusement Park (that no longer exists - the rollercoaster was blown up in a movie). And I am 59 and realizing time is of the essence so I have the going to be 60 freakouts.
I've been looking for a Rep for a while, had one interested but he got in a very bad accident and it took him a year to recoop and unfortunately once he got back to work he became unreliable so I'm back to scratch.
I am asking if there is anybody who could help me in this endeavor! I need all the help I can get!Here are a couple of pictures so you may get ideas about:
