Today we’ll take a look at the work and story of several successful licensed artists.

What I love is that they all have very unique styles and are quite different from one another.

This a great visual example of the breadth and scope of difference there is in opportunity in art licensing.

(I haven’t even spoken yet about the serious niche genres of fantasy and horror that also require talented artists from which to license!)


Beth Logan

gazillion ERMERGERD.

Cuteness overload… and cats.


Beth created a series of illustrations and sculptures of her Flossie cat the last month before her kitty died.


I just lost my Patchie too, so this is sitting really personally with me.

Check out her blog – there is such a wonderful sense of character there with stories filled with Beth’s personality.

“Realness” is attractive.

Showing your real self in your biz in all your power and glory and vulnerability is the most engaging.

We’re all misfits.

Screen Shot 2014-03-07 at 8.44.54 AMPaul Brent has chosen the “Seaside” niche and excelled.

He’s expanded beyond the sea and has an enormous amount of products available on his website.

Jewellery, wall hangings, floor coverings, glass art, framed art, bags, needlepoint – the breadth of products that can have licensed illustrations is really unlimited.

Drew Brophy“Making things look cool since 1971.”


That’s so many levels of awesome.

First, that it’s the actual tagline for a successful business AND that it’s totally the truth.

Mary Engelbreit Studios

avatar_maryMary Engelbreit is one of the most prolific and (from what I can tell) famous licensed artists alive.

She has 52 700 likes on Facebook.


SEE. Famous.

Check out the “About” page on her website. She has a team of employees to help with the licensing operation.


Over 25 companies license art for their products from ME Studios. That’s huge. That’s not just 1 product either – that’s multiple products, whole collections.

I had no idea.

No wonder artists in the industry speak of Mary Engelbreit with hushed and reverent tones. (lol!)

In this part we dig more into more of the social aspects of what this means for us as human beings and how we can start using this knowledge to start getting the best out of life and hopefully influencing others and situations to be more harmonious for the whole.

Today we talk with Drew Brophy about quantum physics, art, sacred geometry, the galactic plane, resonance and the connectedness of all things.
