About a year ago a relative of mine was looking at some of my drawings and told me that she thinks that they would make great t-shirt designs. I agreed and she encouraged me to reach to places like H and M to see if I can sell them my designs. And since then it gave me ideas for future projects that would make great clothing and accessory designs. I think that as an artist you should examine your work and ask yourself if you think it might be possible to see your work on clothes, bags, accessories, etc. If so, put together a portfolio with your work and present it to clothing and accessories stores around and see if they take an interest. If you know how to use Photoshop then try Photoshoping your work onto t-shirts and see what they look like. Or if you do video installations maybe your work may qualify for a music video.
Part of the reason why I mentioned my favorite artists in my last blog is because they’re not just about galleries.
