Katalyst with Carrie Harper
Posted : September 13th, 2011 by TribeHouse
Carrie Harper is such an inspiration. Last night’s Katalyst gathering brought up some great discussion on the theme of selling out and the fragile balance of being a “pure” artist & a marketer. It was refreshing to hear Carrie’s perspective on how she is using her creativity not only in her studio on canvases but also in her networking & marketing skills (which she has a lot of). She’s been branching out into the whole licensing world as opposed to sticking to strictly selling originals along with looking for opps to throw her designs on new mediums like iPhone & iPad covers.
With sites like Cafepress.com & Gelaskins.com it’s becoming easier for anyone to mass-produce their artwork from a simple little JPEG. What are your thoughts on this whole topic of selling out? You think it cheapens the work of the artist when the same image is on more than 1 surface?
