I regularly recommend that artists go do some “Shopping Research” to start learning to see like an artist who creates art for licensing. Here is a video I shot in a store recently that shows you what I mean – ready to look at gift bags through the lens of “how to figure out what art the manufacturer needs”?
Easy, right? It’s just a new way of looking at things and a habit you can form over time if you are deliberate in the beginning. I challenge you to go out and try it TODAY with a different product category.
Here’s to your creative success!
