Seeking Advice On Promoting Art!!

Posted by: Louis Monnich on 06/07/2013 - 6:17 PM

Hi! My name is Louis Monnich. I'm a Fantasy painter from Houston, TX, and I need some help.

You see, I'm new to the Art world, and I have no idea how to promote my work or even where to start promoting. I've posted 5 pieces on my profile, but getting the word out is quite the challenge for me. Any advice or other kinds of help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
~LM

P.S. Here is my profile: http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/louis-monnich.html

Don't forget to drop me a line and let me know what you think! ^_^

Put marketing in the discussions search.

As an artist, half of the work is marketing yourself.

Here are some good links to discussions in our forum and elsewhere about marketing your work

Hi Louis welcome.. The easiest thing would be starting a blog, they have many free ones to choose from (Blogger, Squidoo and even here on FAA), they help drive traffic in.
If you're not sure what to blog about, just do some research from others to give you some ideas.

I would suggest searching the boards for previous posts. This topic comes up quite often so some may be reluctant to keep posting about the same thing. Abbie has it covered for the most part. Keep plugging away is my suggestion. Economy is down so many are trying to turn hobby into profit. Lot's of competition but I can too is my motto!

Start contacting animators, also you might consider specializing some of your work and become a vendor at the next Comic-con.
