Healing the Earth, Healing for Ourselves

Healing the Earth Heals Us All. What's good for the planet is good for us! Celebrate Earth Day, support the environment, Go Green! This is the newest product I've uploaded to our Zazzle shop. Paul has put up a couple, too.

We're proceeding cautiously with Zazzle, putting things up but brainstorming a lot about how to go way beyond the Print On Demand models we've found so far. Are the most successful artists, commercial or otherwise, using these services? Some like the creator of Dilbert and Peanuts are but they're already famous and have a built-in audience for their work. We think artists who really believe in the quality of what they have to offer go far beyond this. We're just beginners at marketing our art though so we haven't hit our mark with it yet.

We're both thinking we need people who know a lot more about marketing artist's work to represent us. We're looking for literary agents, too. There's satisfaction in doing some things for ourselves but the go-it-alone model... well, let's put it bluntly, it sucks! We're looking for ethical partnerships, win-win relationships, and people who can help us go further than we've been able to do on our own.
