Sorry for any errors on the tips & how to pages. I'm doing this fast.
I wish you luck. Display that and make sure to tell people that you are also still looking for your own collaborators -- writers, publishers, graphic artists and book designers. Be ready to barter. Start with a low price and analyze how you will increase your prices.
It occurred to me to come up with a book of artists who are or were homeless at one point. It's just a gimmick. I see artists as artist, but collaborative books with multiple artists can have their own flavors.
I was on a bus, when I saw a man on the sidewalk in his army getup. He was very clean-cut, perfectly dressed, walked steadily and upright. He carried himself well. I'm almost sure he went to some office to take care of something.
I told myself, if he painted, there will people who will buy and collect his art. If he declares how many he will make, and how his prices will progress in the future, he will be entertaining investors like everyone else.
Once again, my own fixation with coming up with a group book of veteran artists is in my mind. Artists just need to be artists, and a book of veteran artists is just one good project.
This is another one of my thoughts. I was waiting for the bus, when I saw an 8 1/2" x 11" posting on a glass window. It was a printout of a picture of a dad with four daughters, and a note that said something like: "We need money. Our dad has cancer and we don't want him to die. Please help."
This was in 2014. I hope their dad survived. I had been analyzing our set of conditions, what I now call #valzubiriagenda, and it occurred to me that if the children made art, published them, maybe even with the look and format of a children's storybook, they can raise their money. The best I can do then was pray for them. Even now, I still hope and pray for them and their dad.
