As an Artist, I try to find other ways to monetize my art apart from exhibitions, blogging, markets, and fairs. Other avenues for me, to advertise and monetize my art are licensing on products and workshops. 

This particular blog is on products-Tote bags, which has my art printed on them, that in itself is a subtle way of advertising my artworks, through fashion and style.

 Art Printed products come in handy for the artist, to still make money on the side while we wait, for the big painting sale.

These small collaborations here and there, help the artist, bottom line. 
Every Artist knows the difficulties of getting any sort of funding, for our projects and it can be quite discouraging. 

These online platforms allow us to extend our creativity, by Licencing art on their products, while creating a brand and retail business, around them.

With the right products and tags, your creativity gets seen, around the world without much expenditure.

I can only write about the ones I know of and use, it involves hard work and constant sharing, of your creative designs, through social media and newsletters.
These, are the platforms that I'm, familiar with,

Below are the sites I monetize my art on:

In this day and age of fierce entrepreneurship, it is important as artists, to be in the game.

This is so important and cannot be overemphasized 
or taken for granted, because we are the creatives and our imaginative process, can only be translated by us.

It is a gift that keeps on giving and must be harnessed and utilized, to its fullest. 

Hence the internet, with all its juicy platforms enables our dreams to be realized. 

These tote bags represent my Art and these are gorgeous all-over printed tote bags features sturdy, weather-resistant fabric and dual 100% natural cotton bull denim shoulder straps. 

And one can make a beautiful, artful statement with this standout, all-season  Tote Bags - whether on an afternoon stroll around town or a weekend out of town.

I love how my Art, is a statement and is enjoyed by those who love Art and Style.....Enjoy 

How do these platforms work, you simply create art that you can download on their products, they have the software to assist you in your creativity. 

look out for brands that suit your kind of art. These other brands could be 

Society 6
Deviant art
fine art America

I speak for the ones I use and they currently sell my art and designs for me with stated commissions and I have done quite well so far!

I would advise that you build a good body of work as an artist in order to proceed on this kind of monetization so you don't overstretch your art.
