Licensing and a Question
This is another design I would like license is this toy design – I think this design would be great for kids – mainly girls. Â I am working to clear some space to work on licensing things .. but it is going slowly. Â I am still low energy from being sick for 2 months … so I have to be kind to myself instead of berating myself.

I am going to put some of my original work on myÂ Etsy ShopÂ … Â I have joined a team where you have to have at least 2 items in my shop that are the original art (as opposed to digital, prints or reproductions). Â Since I am wanting to license my work, I have been keeping most of my originals. Â Many licensing companies want to work from the originals – so that is why I have been keeping them – at least partly why. Â So I am wanting to find some of my work that I can sell that I don’t want to license.
My question … on the bottom left ofÂ this page, there is a pastel called “Harem” … do you find this offensive or do you like it or are you neutral? Â I have one that is no where on the web, that I may post here tomorrow or put it on the site with a link. Â Both paintings (pastel paintings) are of men … so they would not really be part of what I would be licensing. Â But my work is mostly uplifting (in my opinion) and I want to see your reactions .. I want to make sure I am not shooting myself in the foot. Thank you so much for taking the time!!

I looked at Harem and can’t see anything offensive about it. In fact I like the colours and the strength of the image and the idea is interesting. Not what you would expect from the name – gives us something to think about men. Nice one.
You are sounding a little down today. Hope you haven’t been pushing yourself too hard again.
Keep well dear friend.
You can be proud of this gallery. Your style is uplifting, with the colours and the gentle shapes.
I agree with Frances. Usually with these pictures of harems it is a picture of a woman. He looks quite comfortable and happy.
I don’t find Harem offensive but I think the guy is not very handsome *smile*.. Sorry I’ve been really working up to a deadline (will post abt it soon)
