Interview with Brush Dance Greeting Card Company

Check out this interview with Brush Dance on Artsyshark blog:


Excerpt:

QUESTION: How do you go about finding artists you may want to use for your Brush Dance products?

Rumi Journals

BRUSHDANCE: Two basic ways. We regularly receive submissions from artists who have seen our products and feel that their work fits well with what we are doing. Increasingly, though, artists are finding us through Facebook and Twitter. At least a few times a week, I get questions about how to submit art. Second, we search for artists. Etsy and independent artist websites have been terrific resources for us, but we also keep an eye on design blogs and a variety of magazines and other publications.
