Focus: Independent Art

Sure, Lulu has a lot of great literature. Fiction, Poetry, Science Fiction, the list goes on and on. But did you know that we also have a plethora of independent artists? Lulu is attractive to indy artists for the same reason it’s attractive to indy authors: control, audience, quality and opportunity.

I encourage you to check out my top Indy Art book picks of the week.

  1. I think all artists should have thier own artbook which is full of thier art. Do not wait for someone else to write one about you, do it yourself and let people decide whether or not they want to purchase it. In the meanwhile you have an intelligent collection of your artwork, along with your biography and any other points of interest to show to prospective clients. It really is an alternative portfolio which serves to show what your work looks like in print as well. Since all publishers ultimately want to know what your illustrations look like in printed form, this serves as an invaluable portfolio to show. My book came out beautifully and everyone I show it to absolutely falls in love with it! Bravo to Lulu for offering exceptional print quality which only serves to enhance teh artwork!

    I first came to lulu because it was possible to sell art PRINTS here, framed or not. (My 2 storefronts are still full of art but now only for downloading.) That aspect was removed with no real explianation as to why. Is there some reason lulu cannot team up with some other on-line art reproduction site that can do any orders for printed art? There are surely many around who offer such services if you upload a jpg to them, but they do not take thirdparty orders for dropshipping, but I am sure it could be arranged. So how about it lulu? (Lulu does in fact already own a site that offers a part reproduction service >> http://www.picture.com/ however it could be like >>> http://www.aldiphotos.co.uk/ if lulu do a deal with such a place.)

  3. Hello Carol!

    I just published my first book with Lulu.com a couple of weeks ago. It’s called, “Conquering the Fear of Rejection.” My questions is, how does someone become ‘the Author in the Spotlight’? I would be interested.

    Thank you so much and thank you for helping my dream of becoming an author come true.

    I think that Lulu is doing great jobs. It’s fabulous that independent art is available to all. New talents are coming out .
