Just wanted to share a little shameless self promotion. I've been
lurking here for a while, soaking in all the wisdom.

Today I was listed as a featured artist on this blog.
Stop by and let me know what you think

Subject: [Baren 33248] Call to printmakers
Send Message: To this poster

Hello all my printmaking friends!

In another shameless effort to promote printmaking around the world, I have created and built an easy to use website for printmakers to try and sell their prints on for FREE.
It is partnered with my physical gallery so can can get more exposure.

It is called "Hand pulled prints".

Not very original or a new idea, but hey... I will do anything to sell original prints and get the word out.

Check it out, I built it this week so all the bugs are not worked out yet but it is coming along nicely.
Free. No catches or hidden crap. No pop-ups, spam or junk mail. No fees, no membership charges. Free.

Cheers, Rob

Send Message: To this poster

More blocks in from several of you. I will update the website this weekend,
I think I sent everyone a private email when I received the latest blocks.

PLEASE do NOT worry if your block is late. I know the deadline coincides
with Exchange 32 and the Baren Exchange is much more important in terms of
getting the prints in on time.

Don't overnight, don't worry, just carve your little blocks and send as soon
as you can.

Send Message: To this poster

By popular demand I have started a group for artists who engage in or are
interested in art festivals or generally in selling art. This way we keep
all that nasty commerce stuff off this and other printmaking and art lists.
Everyone is welcomed.
I promised I would publish a "tip o'the week", weekly, of course.
I know, like we need more email...sheesh!

Anyhow, you can join from here:

Maria, tell a friend!
