Hugs to giveaway! And a chat about Art Licensing…

Jane Davenport Hug MugWake up and smell the coffee…. in my new Hug Mugs! There are four in the initial release and they each feature artwork from ‘The Sidekicks’ series ( click here for images).

I have been working with the lovely peeps at Ashdene  for 9 years and their are many thousands of my designs being enjoyed in people’s kitchens around the world. I’m amazed at how many times I have been out and about and served a cuppa in one of my own mugs.Jane Davenport Hug Mug

This project was super-exciting because it was my own concept and I got to design the packaging – that’s a big deal in the Licensing world.

I work with some wonderful companies in Art Licensing arrangements. This is where a business is given the Rights to reproduce  artwork on their products. You see Art Licensing everywhere – Anne Geddes, Wyland, Kelly-Rae Roberts are a few other artists who License their work. In return, the business or ‘Licensee’ pays a Royalty for each item the artwork is reproduced on.

When you see “All Rights Reserved” as part of a copyright description, it means that the Artist is aware of their copyrights and is calling the shots on where and how their artwork is used.

I actually have my Art Business Class ( ABC with Jane Davenport! ) under development. I’ll  be covering Publishing, Licensing, Exhibiting, Trade Shows, Online and bricks-and-mortar Stores, Blogging, Manufacture, Online Presence  AND remaining creative and true to yourself. I have so much to share on all these areas of being a modern Artist!

Do you have any burning Art Business questions? Would learning more about these issues be of interest to you?

Let me know your thoughts below… I have 4 mugs to give-away for the most  interesting responses.

And one lucky person who joins one of my workshops this month will get a whole set!!!

So, if you have been hesitating about joining an online class, let this be the little incentive that pushes you over the edge.




Thankyou all so much for your interesting questions about Art Licensing, being an artist and creating art! It has really assisted me in sharpening  the focus of my upcoming Business Class! All of these questions ( and many more!) will be worked through.

Being an Artist and maintaining integrity whilst still feeling fulfilled and creative seem to be top of the list. I will answer that in a blog post very soon- can’t wait until the Workshop arrives to  answer  that!

Keep your burning questions coming!

Update 2: Gemma B was the winner of the whole set- congrats!

Individual winners are listed in the comments section!

Thanks everyone!
