tangor, why? Artists are above making money?
but they (me) would rather make 100% than anything less than that
if it doesn't sell, what does the artist get?
if it doesn't sell, what does the artist get?The exact same thing as if the artist didn't make the licensing/royalty/whatever-you-want-to-call-it deal- nada.
In other words, if the artist doesn't make a deal, he can lose or draw. If he does make a deal, he can draw or win.
I'm emailing the artists.
Is licensing a dirty word to an artist or something? Maybe I should phrase it differently?
the website makes dough off the artist just by having their name/art on the site and the artist gets nothing
The licensee pays to use the licensed material. Done that way nobody can complain. Much like a movie studio paying the author to license their book for x years, paid up front, and possibly pay royalties on income above z.
a) the website makes dough off the artist just by having their name/art on the site and the artist gets nothing (tough some might say "exposure" is something).
b) the artist has no control/oversight on the sale of his work or the accounting thereof
tangor, what about my initial contact would make you think I'm a jerk?
it's not spam
