Currently I'm offering phone consulting on all aspects of art licensing, greeting card and other product designing and manufacturing. Also via email I do contract reads, redline comments and reviews.
I've been a freelance illustrator, designer and art licensor since 1987, doing workshops, consulting and contract reviews since 2000. Several of the Art Licensing events I've spoken at are listed below.
I exhibited in Surtex for 11 years and the Licensing Show for 3 years and have coached over 70 people to do the shows too.
I hope to add some workshops back for 2015, you can contact me at the email address below for those details.
In the meantime if you need consulting via phone or contract reviews via email I'm available Monday- Friday 10-5:00 and some evenings and weekends.
Best to you,
