Neurodivergent Artists Wanted!
Want to partner with Divergent Stitches? Read on!
I am exploring licensing fantasy and roleplaying artwork from neurodiverse artists to be made into fabric and then handbags/tote bags/dicebags/etc. for my shop.
What I'm looking for:
* Artist MUST be neurodiverse (autistic, ADHD, etc.)
* Art needs to be electronic media (i.e. able to be sent to me via email/fileshare). Unfortunately I can't accept pictures of paper art as it won't be able to be printed onto fabric.
* Art must be created 100% by the artist (or legal guardian) submitting the work.
* Ideally images will be a minimum of 150 ppi. I prefer a file size minimum of 2000x2000 pixels but will consider smaller sizes if the ppi is 150+.
* NO copyrighted images or themes (i.e. no World of Warcraft, no D&D-specific, no Harry Potter, no Pokemon [unless created 100% by you], etc.)
Dice are a-ok as no one (to my knowledge) has copyrighted any size of die.
* Some ideas of what I'm looking for:
* Dice, especially gaming dice
* Roleplay characters (i.e. bard, druid, rogue, etc.)
* Unicorns or other fantasy creatures
* Comic book type characters (superheroes, etc., - again nothing copyrighted)
* Magic potions, magical herbs, etc.
Cool stuff that would appeal to gamers, cosplayers, etc.
* I will also consider artwork that would translate well to fabric
What I can offer:
* I'm a teeny tiny business - I might make $500 this year, for real, I'm tiny.
I can pay $10 to license an image, plus 5% of all sales of any item I make using your image.
* I will always credit each artist whenever posting an image of their artwork online. Happy to link to artist websites/DeviantArt/etc. on my social media.
* 50% discount if you'd like to buy an item that I made using your image(s) (I would not pay the 5% sales commission in this case).
* We can sell fabric made with your designs through my Spoonflower dropshipping model. I would take 10% of profit for overhead costs. I would set you up with a page on the website that's all about you and showing off your art and items made with your art (fabric, etc.)
If you're interested in talking further or submitting an artwork, please email me!
I would prefer to keep any and all conversations about these transactions to email, so that there is a paper trail of everything, to protect you AND me.
If I accept a submission, I require the artist sign a licensing agreement, again to protect you AND me. Above all else, I want to respect and protect every artist's rights to their own work!
