Then art licensing might be for you...


Instead of selling originals or selling designs outright, many artists will grant the right (license) to use their art on a specific product, for a set time period in exchange for a percentage of sales. By licensing instead of selling art, there is the potential to earn income on the same piece of art or collection of art multiple times.
