EJ’s recent post about her use of the art licensing site Zazzle.com inspired me to give it a try. I haven’t tried to sell my artwork on-line, but the ease of using zazzle to put my art on hundreds of products drew me right in. My zazzle store ‘clarkeAHHT’ is in a testing stage. I’ve designed some button badges, refrigerator magnets and one poster.
My friend Paul isn’t crazy about the idea of his mug on a poster (it’s a small poster), but his face on a button makes him beam with the words “I am somebody!”. Yes, Paul, you are somebody and here’s your mug on a button. It’s a 2″ button for 2.45. my royalty? a quarter on each button sold. not enough to make me rich, but enough to make me want to have fun designing these things.
maybe I’ll design a sneaker with his mug on it next. I’m amazed at how many items are offered through this site. everything is printed on demand and is advertized as ‘ready to ship’.
EJ’s advice: work those tags. I’ve applied ‘glosta’ and ‘goodmorninggloucester’ and ‘paulie walnuts’ tags to my items. if you go to the link you will see Paul’s badge and lots of other gloucester items created by other folk.
thank you gmg for putting together such a great site. it not only keeps me up-to-date on the uniquely ‘glosta’ doings, but is helping me to step-up my marketing efforts through the generosity of other folk sharing their tips and experiences.

I’m looking at this loft space in Gloucester MA to open the Debbie Clarke “School for Drawing” and studios. There are 2 private studios that will be available for short term/long term rental and teaching space available to artists to rent for workshops, etc. I would like to move in June 1st. So, if you are looking for short term or long term studio space, please contact me as soon as possible to discuss your needs. This is a second floor space with west light. The windows work, so there is ventilation. I am an oil painter and am looking for other painters, teachers. email to me at email@example.com
