I thought this was an interesting post over on The Crafty Chica about art licensing, by card artist Kate Harper, playfully titled “Want a Career Designing Greeting Cards? Quick! Grab the Nearest Artist and Start a Support Group.”
We talk a lot about the business side of crafting, but licensing doesn’t always get much airtime. Harper argues that it gives her the time to spend more time in her “art cave,” and means she spends less time dealing with the nitty gritty details of running her own business.
