A few days ago, I had written that I will order some copyright infringements from French Amazon to whip someone’s a$$. I have also ordered four doormats from Spanish Amazon and am looking very forward to checking the quality, leaving  reviews and most of all: report them for copyright infringement!

I will keep you updated.

I have had to fight so many copycats on Amazon marketplace all over the world, I cannot count them anymore. Filling out Amazon’s reporting form is so tedious *sigh* I have been made aware of a new way of reporting copies of your work: Order the infringing items from Amazon and after having them received, fill out the form with your order number as reference. Amazon does take customer satisfaction rather serious. It seems that in all cases (you still have to provide proof that you are the owner of the art/photo) you will get your money back. Plus can keep the item to use it, donate it, burn it, whatever… You can use the unrightful copies to take photos of the poor quality, rate it negatively or make comparison videos with your product. Endless possibilities…

I have ordered three doormats from French Amazon since there have not been ANY copies on German Amazon. Wow, almost a pity… They are still on their way over to little me – all the way from China. I cannot await receiving them!

I will keep you updated on this, I promise 🙂

Despite the fact that I am constantly battling copycats and copyright infringements on the Amazon Marketplace, you CAN actually find my original designs there. So if you are looking for unique gift ideas that are produced by Amazon (through Merch), Society6 or even GrabYourDesign, please do not hesitate to check these out:

I admit it, I love the Seattle Space Needle since I have read the Fifty Shades Trilogy and I would do almost anything to see it live with my own eyes one day. I have no idea why, but it has become one of my goals on my bucket list. Until then, I have the miniature LEGO version in my living room and am enjoying creating fanart on various print-on-demand websites where you and I can buy some souvenirs conveniently from home. It is easier to get them delivered to your doorstep than you actually stepping into a local souvenir shop in Seattle, Washington?

I so did not know this about Instagram and WILL have to give it a try with some of my digital artwork. Have you every tried using specific hashtags to get featured?

Artist Marketing Resources

Instagram

Artists who add hashtags to their art images get more visibility as they post their work to Instagram. Some hashtags artists use:  #abstract #abstractart  #abstract_and_contemporary_art  #acryliconcanvas  #artdealer #artwork #artcollector #artcollectors  #artforsale #apartmenttherapy  #artlovers  #atelier #artistportraits  #affordableart  #womenartists  #artbuyers  #buyart Collectart# #collecting  #decor #contemporaryart  #collect #collage #drawing #draw #drawingaday #thedailysketch #dotsofpaint #FineArtPrints #handpainted #homedecor #interiordesign #interiordecor #interiorstyling  #loveart #landscapes #livewithart #limitededition #lowbrowart  #mixedmedia #mixedmediaart #officedecor #paint  #paintingforsale #pastel #pastelpainting #print #prints #printchat  #PRINTMAKING  #portrait  #sellart

Artists also tag their art images for specific collections and online galleries that feature artists– here are a few:

Art Sanity on Instagram has over 143,000 followers, and they like to showcase the best artwork from undiscovered artists on Instagram. To get your work in front of their curators tag your art images with #artsanity. Two Art Sanity curators seem to like especially feature drawings — view their tastes here and here.

artFido.com has 426,000 followers. ArtFido invites you to tag your art images…

Last night’s Doctor Who season 11, episode 3 “Rosa: Montgomery” was centred around Rosa Parks (played by Vinette Robinson) in the run-up to the brave moment she refused to give up her seat for a white person.

She ended up becoming an inspiration for many and eventually brought about changes in America which were continued by Dr Martin Luther King.

One conversation between Graham with the Doctor and the other Companions ist about his belated wife wearing once wearing an anti-racism t-shirt to a date with him. This “Spirit of Rosa” t-shirt is available to buy online now on various sources for your to choose from:

Q4 (4th quarter of the year) is here, usually the biggest sales will hit us in the print on demand industry so please do not give up reporting copyright infringements on Amazon Marketplace and other websites!

Reporting Copyright Infringements to Amazon

Reporting Copyright Infringements to Amazon

I often hear artists complaining that reporting those copycats will not earn them money and they have to do productive things to earn money – time is money. This mindset is wrong. The more copycats with copyright infringements are selling YOUR designs, the less YOU might sell yourself! And in addition we have to show the world that it is NOT OK to steal our work, our money, our business, our ideas.

Keep reporting, keep reporting, keep reporting!

Plogging is the latest fitness trend from Sweden, combining jogging / running and picking up trash, litter and rubbish that you find on your run. It is great to add some extra crouches to your workout and to do something good for your environment by recycling the waste afterwards.

I have designed a few t-shirts on Amazon and Spreadshirt for you to wear while plogging. Some of them feature an explanation what plogging is, so that you do not repeat it over and over again when being asked.

Here is one example from Amazon:
