Interesting Sites

A 100% free marketplace for selling online. No software is required. To find out more be sure to visit their site.

Pod casts not really related to art. Basically two guys sitting around drinking beer discussing things related to the internet and technology. It is something different to listen to while working away.

Site for those interested in having their work printed, marketed toward artists looking for a straight forward approach.

Want to submit your design work and get that much needed exposure? Check this out.

If you are an artist in business for yourself, and you have not looked at this site, RUN there right now. No I am not affiliated in anyway. I just really appreciate what this site has to offer.

On first glance it can appear to be loaded with ads, but they are worth wading through if you are not interested in them to find the free content.
Last but certainly NOT least
In an effort to streamline things at Artist-How-To, theYahoo Group will cease to exist after the end ofthis month. I have instead created a blog aimed JUST for businesspurposes.

You will still be able to subscribe to our group, but now I can easily load images and surprise freebies with ease. To subscribe go to the business blog follow the directions where it says `subscribe to this feed' Business blog
If anyone has any question about how to subscribe etc, feel free to email me at and I will be happy to help.

If you want to read my personal blog it will now be Personal blog

I strongly encourage you to leave comments on the blog. This is a great way for me to find out what you are interested and what we can offer that will fit your personal needs.

I remember hearing that politicians consider every letter they receive to represent 18 people. The remainder just does not want, for whatever reason, to speak up. So come on up and post, I promise to not instill any new taxes or start any wars.

In Closing

FYI I would like to post comments from customers on the site. If you have anything you would like to share or comment please email me at

Feel free to pass this along to whomever you feel can benefit from its contents.

Keep creating! :0)
