Hi all, i was just wondering how many of you sell art over the internet either through your own website or through ebay or some other way. How much work do you get and could or do you make a living from it. I have sold some work through ebay and my website but not nearly as much as I would like. Also how do you get traffic to your site, facebook, twitter etc.

Cheers Chris

There is a large market for prints of original artworks online. Though I personally sell jewelry and digital downloads, not 2-demension art online, I have networked with artists who sell originals and prints from their websites/etsy/etc. The biggest thing is to figure out what sets you apart from the sea of other artists out there, and market on THAT to find your right audience.

I'm about to move in that direction. I'm set up with a couple of print on demands, but now that i'm more experienced in charcoal drawing I think I'll put a few up from my classes and see if I can get a little money. But I'm not sure which site might sell faster and have more art interest. I'm thinking Ebay or Amazon.

It's nice to dream.Good luck.

I sell my stuff through red bubble and society 6. I don't sell verymuch. My thought is that If people in another country wan't to buy something from me, we can go through one of these sites as the shipping costs from Sweden are very pricey.

I've seen allot of people building a following on instagram and sell their work from their own webshop. But you have to do something that really sticks out as the competition is really hard.

I see you do portraits. When I started drawing (again) I did portraits of all my facebookfriends. If they liked them they used them as profile pics and that's very good promotion. At times It was like I was just talking to my drawings, as everyone had one as a profilepic. :)
