Since I'm starting to (finally) get things underway with my art pimping business, I realized that it would be helpful to have a good, catchy name for it. I have a name I came up with, but it lacks a certain je ne sais quoi, so I figure some of my more, shall we say, imaginative friends might be able to help me out. :)
For those who don't know, I'm starting a business to help small artists sell their work, primarily at sci-fi convention art shows. I'm working with people who are just starting to show their work and get paid for it, and also with folks who have an established body of work but want more outlets to show their stuff. These are really talented artists that aren't necessarily doing their art as a full-time business, and therefore need some help (both time, energy and knowledge) getting their work out to a wider audience. They run the gamut from comics to fantasy to sci-fi to furry to feminist to queer and a lot of stuff in between. My part is to get their work to where it needs to go, and then handle the money end of things when the show is over, plus help promote them wherever I can.
Given that premise, help me out!
If you have an idea for a good name for my business, reply to this post! (I'll screen replies until the decision is made.)
The prize? If I pick a name suggested, you get a free print from my stock of artists! (Once I actually get the stock in hand, of course!)
As a teaser, here's a few websites of some artists I'm going to be working with:
- uziel_twentyone's website, Sanctuary
- akirashima's website, AutumnShrine
- Thalia Took
- troystar's website, PhilFogel.com
And if anyone wants to know how I got into this, feel free to ask. :)
