The 2013 Art Licensing Catalog is now available. We will be bringing these to the Surtex show in NYC, May 19th through 21st, but if you want a sneak peak you can now download the catalog today.
If you saw yesterday's Wall Street Journal, you might have noticed there was a great article about the business of licensing artwork, and of course they reached out to the experts. They interviewed Art Licensing CEO, Jack Appelman, to get the skinny on the history of the business, and even got some first hand testimonies from our artists, Mindy Sommers and Cory Carlson. These two artists have been very successful with Art Licensing, and have grown with us in this ever-changing industry. You can see the full article online at The Wall Street Journal. You'll even see a color photo of one of Cory Carlson's images. That particular image has been used for puzzles, wall tiles, and even cross-stitch patterns. Yes, we like to get our artists the biggest bang for their buck, or their brush you could say.
Moises Levy claims that Photography has been the perfect media to express his curiosity for beauty and art. He states that "Photography is a craft that is cultivated in a daily basis, learning how to watch, and being always aware of shapes, lights, and foresee the scenes before they occur, these happens in street photography and also in landscape photography, when visualizing an image foreseeing all the whole environment. Perseverance is a quality that shall be developed; a good portfolio is gotten through many sessions and years of work."
ALI artist, Harold Silverman, has products appearing at Bed Bath and Beyond and we got a chance to check them out this weekend! His trees from the series Natural Elements has been placed on shower curtains, tissue boxes, cups and more for bathroom accessories. You can see a few of the peices online at Bed, Bath and Beyond. We have more pictures from our trip on a facebook page. Go check it out, and see what other familiar artwork we found.
Photographer Geoffrey Ansel Agrons has been licensed for wall decor products being sold at Target. Wow, Target, now thats a serious market. Agrons's black and white photography is lovely and serene, perfect for homes and offices across America. We're excited to have him as part of the ALI portfolio.
