Starting a Business in the Art Industry

Posted on March 30, 2016 | Posted under art consultant, art consulting, art guidance, art help, art mentor, how to start selling your art, selling art
Are you an artist interested in selling your artwork but not sure where to start? Are you interested in selling online or at local markets and festivals? Do you have questions about art licensing, wholesale, galleries, marketing or branding? Do you want to sell your artwork as a hobby or professionally?
Let me help guide you by not making the same mistakes many artists do when starting or pursuing their art career. My goal is to kickstart your business, give you confidence while saving you time and money.
I am an award winning self taught artist, gallery owner, TEDx speaker, entrepreneur and a father. I have been selling my artwork professionally since 2008. My first year I setup at 150 markets/shows and currently sold in over 800 events. In 2010 I started selling at wholesale shows in Los Angeles and New York. In 2013 I opened an art gallery featuring 20 local artists. I have worked with some respectable companies such as DC Shoes, Disney, Grateful Dead, United States Marine Corps and many others.
       
My journey in the art industry has been incredible but not easy. Many people think the world owes them something but nobody owes you anything. I believe that what you put into your business is what you will get out of it. In this industry you need to be motivated, passionate, sacrifice and truly love what you do. I am willing to share my knowledge, experience and mentor artist who are serious about their craft.
I help artists who are starting out, trying to get their business to the next level, marketing, shows and fees, art direction, pricing, wholesale, art advice and anything else related to running an art business.

Release of "Light Up New York"

Posted on September 20, 2015 | Posted under Doodle, Freedom Tower, New York City, New York City Print, New York Doodle, New York Reflection, NYC, Statue of Liberty, Twin Towers
I've been wanting to create a New York piece for many years and it has finally arrived. I traveled to New York from May 14-21, 2015 for the National Stationary Show at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. The show was four days which meant I had sometime to explore New York and get inspiration for this piece. My favorite part about the trip was hearing and seeing all the sites and sounds of New York City. My first stop was to ground zero to visit the Freedom Tower, went to the 9/11 memorial museum, rode the bikes over the Brooklyn Bridge, took a helicopter tour around the Statue of Liberty, watched The Lion King on Broadway, walked the High Line and enjoyed real New York pizza.
  
New York is one of those cities you can do something different everyday. This is a special place and I wanted to capture a view with the Freedom Tower, Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty. "Light Up New York" is a picture of New York City with the moon at dusk and the Twin Towers reflecting in the water. This was my way to show respect for the new and old skyline bringing them together and lighting up New York. Hidden you will find many different aspects of New York along with the finished date 09/11/15.

Viz Art Ink on the Front Cover

Posted on September 06, 2015 | Posted under Artist in Residence, Beach, California, Carlsbad, Carlsbad Magazine, Disney, Doodle, Lifeguard Tower, Sunset, Tamarack Beach, Tower 34, Viz Art Ink
If you live or are visiting Carlsbad, CA during September/October 2015 make sure to grab one of the Carlsbad Magazine. My newest piece "Coastal California" made it on the cover! I drew it live at Disney's WonderGround Gallery while I was Artist in Residence in May. The Carlsbad Magazine can be found throughout Carlsbad and at our gallery. 
    
"Coastal California" is a journey through the coast of California and inspired by our mesmerizing beach sunsets. The golden sunsets are something to see in person with all the pinks, purples and oranges in the skies that reflect in the Pacific Ocean. Carlsbad was also an inspiration for this piece and was where I originally took my pictures for the lifeguard tower off of Tamarack Beach, Tower 34.

Disney Artwork and Artist in Residence

Posted on April 24, 2015 | Posted under Artist in Residence, Disney, Disneyland, Downtown Disney, Goofy, Gregg Visintainer, Mickey Mouse, Viz Art Ink, Walt Disney, WonderGround Gallery
I am excited to release my new Disney artwork along with some exciting Disney news.
For the month of May I will be Artist in Residence at the WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District. I will have many of my Viz Art Ink collection pieces and the new Disney artwork for sale. Look for special appearances and signings throughout the month, see dates listed.
Date Appearances: May 1, 2, 8, 9, 22, 23, 29 & 30 from 6pm - 10pm.
New Release & Signing Event- Disney will be welcoming Artists, Brian Crosby, Martin Hsu, Jarrod Andrew Schorr and myself to the Disneyland® Resort release of our new Disney artwork.

Artwork is only available through Disney and can be purchased at the WonderGround Gallery.
"Fishing for Goofy" was inspired by a picture of Goofy fishing when he caught the hook on his pants. I wanted to recreate the picture in my style and my version of the famous Disney piece. I added a colorful background with lush trees, flowing river and fish laughing at him. Hidden you will find everything about Goofy that we all love and many images of him throughout the piece.
Artwork is only available through Disney and can be purchased at their WonderGround Gallery in Downtown Disney.
"Walt's Dream" was inspired by the story of Walt Disney and his vision. There is a famous statue at Disneyland titled "Partners" which helped spark the idea for this piece. I wanted to create a scene with Walt and Mickey Mouse looking into his dreams with the Castle and fireworks in the background. Hidden you will find everything that makes Walt come to life. "Walt's Dream" was also picked by Disney for the WonderGround Gallery 60th Anniversary artwork.
Artwork is only available through Disney and can be purchased at their WonderGround Gallery in Downtown Disney.
