Since I’ve got Christmas on my mind, I thought I’d do a quick post about Christmas and art licensing.

lots of ChristmasChristmas is a HUGE spending event – from gifts to gift wrap, dishes, decorations and more.  I’m not sure where I heard the statistic but I believe almost half of licensed products are for Christmas.

As you celebrate the season – Christmas, Hanukkah or other – look around you at the products on the shelves, under the tree and on the table.

Don’t just decide if they are “visually pleasing” but take a look at WHAT is on the many products from an art collection creation process.

As you gaze at gift bags, think about what designs were needed to create the bags.  Repeat patterns, images, borders or icons.

If holiday dishes adorn the table, look at what is on them and how the colors, designs and images go together.

Wishing you a fabulous week of celebration – however busy or quiet your want it to be!

Here’s to your creative success!
