Pencil portrait business advice

Updated on June 5, 2011

a Lensography of all my pencil portrait business pages on Squidoo

Free advice I hope you can use!

This page is the main reference-starting off point, if you want to see all my pages regarding starting and maintaining a pencil portrait art business.

On this page I have included all the links to the pages I have created on Squidoo that relate to having a pencil portrait art business. You'll find pages for promoting your art online, some for advertising your art without spending much money, some are for communicating well with your clients, and how to find your first clients. I hope you will find this information useful.

Toll Free Phone Number Service

You may decide you'd like to get a toll free phone number for your art business. Kall8 allows you to pay a small monthly fee for a toll free number that redirects to your home number, your cell phone, or any number you would like. A toll free phone number allows customers to call you without incurring a fee, so they are more likely to contact you. Visit Kall8's website for more information.

      Hello Darla,

      I need some help, I have over hundreds of hand colored pencil drawings that I have done for some years and I want to upload them and try to see if I can make some money out of them. Sure I know that everybody is using the templates from the computer to create pictures, but there is nothing like drawing from scratch because it lets everybody know that this is yours and you are copying from nobody else. Are there any websites out there where I can display my drawings? I would like to hear from you.

      @Sensitive Fern: Thank you so much for your kind comments! I did begin writing many of the pages as a potential e-book, but then I decided that Squidoo was the way to go to be able to help people.

      Awesome lens! It's like looking at the Table of Contents of a drawing book. I really like that. Lensrolled to my drawing related lenses. 5*

      OMG (that's Oh My Gosh) what a treasure trove of resources. Bookmarked so I can work my way through the links and also point my three very "arty" girls in the direction of your lenses. Thank you!
