They Digg Your Art!
Last week I wrote a post for Digital Photography School on 20 Beautiful Examples of Urban Decay Photography featuring some of our top Imagekind artists in the field. It was such a hit that it reached the number one spot on Digg for the Arts and Lifestyle category! It really took off!
If you’re a digg user, give it a read through and digg it if you feel so inclined. Thanks!
Create Live Seattle
Prominent artists and Imagekind members Natasha Wescoat and David Hoang are coming to Seattle next Saturday, August 29! In conjunction with their event Create Live Seattle, Natasha and David will be creating art live while they stream, chat, tweet, answer questions and hang out with other Seattle artists at Bedlam Coffee. Here’s what they say about the event:
The rules at a CreateLive event are simple. If you have something creative that you are working on, bring it and work along side our featured artists. If you want to come and just hang out, by all means, you are more than welcome! Come, have fun, create, hang out, eat, drink, whatever. Be Awesome!
I plan on going. So if you’re in the Seattle area and want to meet up with Natasha and David, make sure to stop by! If you’re not in the area, no worries! You can keep up with what’s going on live. Follow the action via Twitter: #createliveseattle and follow the host: Brent Spore. You can see all the details on the Create Live Seattle website.
Helpful Imagekind Overview and Selling Tips
Art marketing blogger Cory Huff put together a fantastic post the other day on tips for selling artwork on Imagekind. After talking with Imagekind artist Tim Aldridge and Leyl Black, Cory was able to put together some top tips for selling your art prints on Imagekind. Cory covers very helpful tips and ideas on how to increase your sales. Some of the highlights include how to promote your artwork, Imagekind marketing tools, the importance of tagging, and more.
You can read the full blog post here.
Quick note, Cory does suggest to add the colors of your artwork as tags (such as tagging your art with “red” “blue” etc.) in order for it to show in the Color Picker. Though it is a good suggestion to tag your work with the prominent colors, it is not necessary for it to show in the Color Picker as it pulls the promiment colors from the image automatically, regardless of the tags.
