Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?

And I’ve done it all without:

A Gallery,
or Instagram!

That’s right, I’ve traded every summer and traveled every winter by selling my art prints…

Click on the drop-down menu for your comprehensive answers. I think I’ve covered everything.

This guide is aimed at artists who want to sell their artwork in the most practical way, either part-time or as a living.
Crafters will also find the selling tips and display advice very useful.
I’m aiming this guide primarily at newbies with little or no experience of selling their own artwork, but by no means exclusively.
This guide is also useful for artists who sell their work already, but need some extra help. There are so many tips on offer, you are bound to find a few new ideas.

No one can guarantee anything in sales. There are too many variables.
This guide is not going to show you how to get rich and famous. That’s for dreamers. What it will do, is show you how to make a living, if you have the right mindset and work ethic.
You can work full-time or part-time, it’s up to you. Personally, I work very hard in the summer, so I can take the entire winter off.
I don’t bother selling at Christmas, which sounds crazy, but that’s my choice, I earn enough not to care.
I’d rather be on a tropical beach, in my hammock.

I can certainly show you what I sell, and I give you pointers towards ways to research your subject matter.
I also help you to choose a popular medium, choose the right paper/canvas size, and reveal what motivates people to buy art.
That said, only you can decide what to paint.
It all depends on your interests, style, and aptitude. We all have different skillsets.
I assume that you already have a portfolio, or know what you want to paint, and this guide shows you how to cash in.

Your guide is sent as a large PDF download. It’s 316 pages long, but don’t be put off by that. The text is quite large and there are many images.
You can skim through if you wish and cherry-pick the bits that interest you most.
This is not a physical book.
The image above is a digital mock-up for marketing purposes only, and not an actual book.
It must be read on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Ultimately it’s a calculated guess. Call me naive, but I think it’s a fair price that anyone can afford.
Let’s face it, you are buying this guide for research purposes. It’s a shortcut to an outcome.
I know that most artists are risk-averse, I should know, I’m one of them, and I’ve priced this guide to be almost risk-free.
You only have to make one extra sale as a result of this guide and it will pay for itself.
As an investment, this is as good as it gets.
It’s not so expensive that it excludes too many people, and not so cheap that I’m underselling myself.

When you hit the button you’ll be directed to the secure Gumroad platform. Hit the blue button that says ‘I want this!’. That will take you to the checkout. Fill in your details and pay. Three clicks and you’re done.
You don’t need an account if you don’t want one, you’ll get a download link with your receipt.
If you do decide to sign up for Gumroad, your PDF will be saved inside your account.
You can pay by Credit/Debit card.
The vast majority of people will see the final cost as advertised. There is a chance, however, that some countries will apply VAT or a sales tax, I’m sorry if that happens, but that’s out of my control.
