This past Sunday I was delighted to spend a little time with some very special people, including a very special NEW(ish, fifteen or so months new) little person. The visit was LONG overdue, to say the least. We got to talking about my art, and what might be on the horizon in terms of the evolution of my work and moving toward a new era in commissions and sales. Because, real talk, I would love to be able to make a few bucks from doing what I love.
The notion of a coloring book of my work came up, and it's definitely something I've been mulling over for a while now. I need to do a ton more research, but it's a real possibility. I have some other ponders to ponder, as well, so here's my quiz!
What kind of theme for a coloring book?
Obvi, Dia de Los Muertos, if you know me at all, lol! But beyond that, based on what you know about my art interests and subject matter, what kinds of themes would appeal to people? In other words, what would YOU want to color?
What else would people like to see me do with my work? Prints are an option, as well as things like shirts, note cards, and other "merch."
What at kind of artwork would you want to buy? For your home? Gifts? In the past I have had some success with ornaments, decorative custom signs, and custom gifts for baby and teachers.
I'm sure I have other questions, but any insight you guys can provide would be much appreciated!
