Aside from talking to humans, my biggest fear about going full-steam ahead in this art gig, is finding humans to talk to.
Clients, I suppose you’d call them. How do you find clients?
How do you find people who want to pay for art?
It isn’t like I make functional, necessary things for the continuation of life.
I make things look pretty.
The world can live without pretty things, can’t it?
[I’ll keep this post short because I have four different projects that people are expecting me to turn in soon]
Anyway, as I was saying, how do you even begin to find clients?
[Seriously though, I have a bunch of work to do.
- A professor from college asked me to design a tattoo for him
- My chiropractor has ordered TWO paintings
- A local charity organization reached out for a logo
- My columnist friend needs a cover design for his upcoming book.
- Not to mention several designs other friends have asked me to upload so they can purchase a mug or T-shirt. AND I’m just recovering from finishing a large commissioned painting for another friend.]
It’s a decent amount of work, but I have to get it done, because these folks are paying me to.
So between all these projects, how does one have time to find clients?
