So I recently turned 20 and I'm getting into artschool next year. And there are some stuff that have to be financed and all but that's not the main point.
I actually just wanted to know how do one get in contact with a client...this might sound stupid but really... I don't think the majority just got it over pure reputation, doing nothing but painting and the e-mails just come floating into there mailbox, sure some do but I don't think this is usally the case...so I sent messages to a few artists I admire but the won't answer, I asume they're really busy (thinking positive...)
But with all honesty is there a smart way to contact a client? like..how do I contact certain firms, directly over e-mail or do I really have to wait until they pick me out of nowhere?
This is something I've been asking my self for quite a while but behind all the art we have to concider that some of us want to make a living and I'm sure alot of people would be glad if someone would give some tips or suggestion on how they started...
I really hope Im not breaking any unwritten rules of the secret craft of art ect ect or what ever because after all it's the damn money that gives us the freedom to do what ever the hack we wan't with our skills not to be bound of any limitations
It's like this...alot of schools have there specific preperation how to get into any buiness, but most of the youngsters who are seriously involved in art have the feeling no one in there educational environment is able to help them when it comes to getting into the business part of art..cuz most of the art teachers ar only art teachers, they haven't worked in the field and therefor can't give you any good advices concerning career n stuff
now DON'T I emphasise !D-O__N-O-T! come over and say "man you're like just looking on the business side"... I'm just hoping that some professionals take some time and try to rather understand in which situation young (and even expreienced people I guess) are.Not even Pros but people who got in or know how to get in or just want to share expriences...it would also be good to know what we have to look out for
....it's a long way to succes, I know..but this is just about how to get it started
