You are definitely the next Van Gogh, even though you have both ears, but so far the only person who knows it is whomever comes down your basement to see your paintings. You can spread the word of your artistic talent by sending out a press kit. You can create an artist press kit with some samples of your work and a few simple steps.
Things You'll Need
- Brief bio
- Press release
- Sample sheets of work
- Photo of yourself
Pick an artistically appropriate folder in which to house all your material. You can even paste a sample illustration or painting on the front for added oomph.
Fill the folder with your business card, a brief bio that lists your gallery showings and training, the masters you’ve worked with and admire, where people can find your work and a press release that explains why your art is current news. Maybe you just won a national award or are showing at a local gallery.
Make up sample sheets of your work, using thumbnails to include several on one sheet or copies of some of your favorites on a single sheet.
Include photos of yourself making your art and a headshot.
Be sure to play up what makes your art unique. Maybe you use food to make paint colors or hold the brush with your teeth.
