Hopefully this will help you make SURE that you get the type of art you are looking for, as well as to develop pity for all in my profession, as you see what we have to deal with, as well as what it takes to produce Art that Sizzles!

How to Determine if the Artist is Right for You

      IF you happen to find an artist requiring no deposit- all you are gambling is the Time. Why gamble? Ask for samples of printed shirts if the artist is at your Printer's business, if a freelance ask if they have a website to see samples of their work. If it's a freelance artist, ask if they can actually draw, and if they can do the art in a format your printer needs- for many artists have no such ability.

      Finally, discuss your concept with them; if they start arguing for a concept THEY have, beware- it could be a sampling of what's ahead. MANY artists are fanatics over THEIR ideas and art- and don't really pay much attention to YOURS. They feel they should be worshiped since they can draw. A good rapport is crucial to working together in making your concept a reality!
