About Licensing

Well, it's an image about licensing anyway. It's a portion of an image that will, eventually, be on a website page of licensing images. This is all in the works - amongst other things in the works. Never enough hours in the day for an illustrator!
I've always loved pattern and borders, so developing licensing images feels natural to me. Licensing imagery and illustration are like different flavors, I think. Licensing tends to be decorative, while illustration is narrative. Different flavors of artwork. And, if done well, it's all a feast for the eyes.
My friend and fellow illustrator, Paula Pertile, has just done a very informative blog post about licensing on her excellent blog, Drawing a Fine Line. Thank you for sharing all this information, Paula!
