It seems our blogmistress became so excited while making yesterday’s Creative Quarterly 45 announcement that she’d forgotten to include Sylvie Daingeault’s beautiful suite of imagery. Apologies, Sylvie!

This gorgeous series was selected as a ‘runner up’ in the Fine Art category. Congratulations, Sylvie!
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!
Victo Ngai’s kinetic lines and bustling scenes were put to tremendous use recently for Franke’s “Make it Wonderful” campaign. As the artist charmingly put it on her blog, “For those of you who have done intoxicated napkin drawings with me at a bar, you might have noticed that my free-hand drawing behaves like wild weeds. It starts at one corner and grow to fill the whole page.”

I’m not sure about you, but I’m still trying to get my idiosyncrasies to work for me.
Thank you to the terrific Chrissy from Gyro for this awesome assignment!
