Matt Richards is a good friend of mine. A while ago we spent some time in his studio talking about his work as a kinetic sculptor and mobile maker. In this interview he mentions, and I’ve seen him do this regularly, that he will do commission pieces for $25,000 – $50,000 or more! The Starving Artist is a myth indeed.
This video is about 10 minutes and contains excerpts from our interview. The full interview (23:15) is available to members of the Abundant Artist Community.
Some of Matt’s killer tips:
- Start small and build your portfolio.
- Use Google Adwords
- Ebay isn’t nearly as good as it used to be.
- Make sure you have a good website.
If you want to catch the full 23 minutes with Matt, all you have to do is join us at TheAbundantArtist.com/Community – it’s a resource for artists just like yourself where you’ll get exclusive access to courses and discussion forums for selling art online. It’s great stuff!
