Susan Barmon is featured in SeeMe Book!

Aug 25, 2015

We are excited to announce that our artist, Susan Barmon, has been selected to be part of the Black and White Collection Book that SeeMe puts out. This book, displays work from photographers representing over 191 different countries around the world!

Susan has been telling stories through photographic portraiture most of her adult life. She says:  “I like the story these little cowboys tell. Their portraits personify the lives they live and the character they are developing. “The Littlest Cowboys” has been a rewarding series. Along with the photographs, I came away from it with lifelong friends and a respect for those, of any age, who pursue the sport… “The Littlest Cowboys, captures a unique slice of Americana---a lifestyle that lives the sport. The children’s rodeo is brimming with a value system we associate with the best of our American heritage: courage, competition, physical stamina, triumph, defeat and sportsmanship.”

Net proceeds from the sales of these books will benefit the Pencils of Promise charity. This organization works to build schools in developing nations. They do not just build a school and move on, they monitor and evaluate the schools after they are constructed. Thus far, every school they’ve opened is fully operational and educating students daily!

Rod Stevens is featured in Where Women Create

Aug 05, 2015

Our artist, Roderick Stevens, was recently featured in the quarterly magazine: “Where Women Create.” This publication brings you into the creative spaces of extraordinary women throughout the country. This magazine is meant to motivate and inspire women, but each quarter they feature 1 man in the “Men who make it” section.

Roderick Stevens is an award-winning painter in multiple styles and mediums. He is a creative soul as he also dabbles in filmmaking and is an award-winning screenwriter! He has been a lover of the arts for as long as he can remember and he started painting in oils when he was just 7 years old! As adulthood and family responsibilities started to consume his life, the variety of artistic expression became relegated to occasional hobbies while he focused on filmmaking. In 2004 he started painting again! Roderick currently lives in Arizona, in a highly energy-efficient home with a 400-square-foot loft studio overlooking the living area. This allows him to balance his work and family life.

You can learn more about Roderick if you read the article featured in Where Women Create this quarter.

Julie Bell was featured in SouthWest Magazine!

Mar 24, 2015

Our artist, Julie Bell ,was recently featured in the March 2015 edition of the South West Art Magazine! She was one of the ten artists in the “Meet 10 artists who depict creatures of all kinds” section of the magazine. Julie’s images were perfect for this article because she paints a variety of animals.

Throughout her life, Bell says, she has felt a special connection to animals and nature. She says:

“When I’m painting animals with all their beauty and wild nature, I experience the kind of at-one-with-the-universe feeling described by people who meditate. It’s both soothing and exciting, the way nature itself is. I know without a doubt that this is what I was meant to do”

Julie started her career working as a well-known illustrator for Marvel Comics. In fact, she was the first woman to paint the character of Conan! Julie continues to create fantasy, science fiction and animal paintings. For more information about Julie’s images, you can view her entire licensing portfolio and contact us

Toy Fair 2015

Feb 18, 2015

This year was the 112th annual North American International Toy Fair. It is the largest toy and youth product marketplace in the Western Hemisphere, with more than 1,000 exhibiting manufacturers, distributors, importers and sales agents that showcase 150,000+ products to nearly 10,000 buyers representing 7,000+ unique retail outlets in 100 countries! We went to the show on Saturday (the first day) and it was already packed!

There is so much to see at the Toy Fair and everywhere you look you see fun stuff! It is a challenge to stay on task and not let your inner child come out to play! We saw a little bit of everything; from stuffed animals (like grumpy cat or a life size Chewbacca), to toy bow and arrows, to boomerangs, to costumes, to airbrush paint sets and pretty much everything in between. We were there for 1 toy only- PUZZLES! We have many artists placed with the various puzzle manufactures at the show and we are always looking for new customers to work with as well as new licensing opportunities for our artists. We had a very successful show. We came home with wish lists from our customers, to do lists for our artists, and follow up lists for the sales team.

Here are some photos of the puzzles that we saw at the show.

Why buy a knock off when you can get the real deal?

Nov 13, 2014

We have some extremely exciting news pertaining to Art Licensing's award winning artist, Dean Russo! To date we have placed over 100 licenses in a multitude of product categories. We have been working diligently to "Brand" Dean Russo in multiple market places. Consequently we are getting inundated with retail customers inquiring if Dean's work, as they are seeing it in the market place ( both online and in retail stores), is in fact his unique brand.

   

We have asked our customers to "Brand" his name on their websites well as somewhere on the product. We believe this this will help to avoid further confusion in the marketplace. Our Dean Russo followers will gain confidence becuase they know they will be buying only authorized products.

If you are interested in purchasing Dean Russo authorized products, you can do so by clicking the links below. His images/products are in MANY other marketplaces and venues, so be sure to check the product for his signature/copyright line so you know you are getting an authentic Dean Russo (not a knock off)!
