Remember the classic kids toy the Weeble Wobble? They wobble but they don’t fall down?
While you might not physically want to resemble one, they are a great example of the mental fortitude artists need to succeed in art licensing. You will get more NO’s than YES’s and need to learn to push through rejection to find that perfect fit of art and manufacturer.
You can wooble but you can’t stay down!
Watch the video and if you like visual reminders, go get one! I have mine sitting on my desk and when I’m feeling discouraged, I try to knock it down and remind myself that it’s my choice if I keep trying or give in. I choose to be a Weeble Wobble – how about you?
Here’s to your creative success!
