You know that expression, “LIFE HAPPENS”?

cherylhodgsonWell, life is happening to our special guest, attorney Cheryl Hodgson. She is moving her home and office and with the changes in the time table, needs to push back our call a week.

So PLEASE MAKE A NOTE that the call will be on Wednesday, July 22 (not the 15th). I’ll send a reminder to everyone who has signed up for “Ask Tara Reed” calls the week of the call but wanted you to be able to mark your calendar.

If you have legal questions about contracts, copyrights, trademarks and more, head to and put them in the pool of potential questions.  We can usually get through 10-15 in the hour – it depends how involved the answers are. It’s going to be a great call!

jilltaraphotoAnd while we are on the topic of Ask calls… I just lined up artist Jill Seale for September. (The 16th to be exact) She has been in the industry for over a decade and has some valuable experience in developing and licensing character art as well as themed art.  I know it’s a few months away but the site is up and ready to start collecting your questions.

Want to get a taste for her quick-witted sense of humor?  Jill just started a new project called the “Mom Scouts®”… funny!  Click here to check it out... not sure what her grand plan is but I can’t wait to find out!

That’s all for now… back to painting!  Here’s to talking licensing once a month and to your creative success!
