I was invited to sign up to a new directory for commission painters the other week, which was a welcome surprise. I do like being asked to do things, and saw this as a great opportunity to join and build a space on a new platform. Here is the link:
Even better, there is a contest at the moment!
Those who sign up as people interested in commissioning one of the artists can follow their favourite artists and comment on the work there. There are four prizes for doing so, the top being a commission of 150 Euro by whomever you choose. The website is run by a fellow in Germany.
The artist with the most followers gets a bragging trophy.
Promoting this also gets more traffic to the website, which I think is a great idea. Go and give it a look over, it’s pretty simple to use and there are some fine painters on there too!
