Some time ago during one of their “Career Talk” articles for 3×3 Magazine, Gail and Vicki discussed the potential of diversifying one’s illustration business. If you aren’t familiar, you should be! Just click here to take a look at some of their awesome ideas.
Interestingly, it seems that a lot of illustrators have taken this wisdom to heart, and we’ve seen more and more of our favorite artists creating wonderful lines that feature their works. From prints to pins and tshirts to tapestries, there is no shortage of fun products to decorate and make your own.
We are all familiar, of course, with Etsy, the awesome platform that showcases these unique products. Recently, the company released a great article in their Seller Handbook series entitled, “How to Get your Wholesale Products into Museum Gift Shops.” It’s chock full of good advice, and if you have a side business yourself – or have considered exploring that avenue – we encourage you to give it a look!
