Artist wanted Dead or alive?

 Greetings to all my Canvas Heads!! Its your Art blog host 'Sketch Painter' here again to stir up the paint on the pallets in this great art world! People seemed to like the last Art topic i posted about "New Techonolgy vs. Old fashion Ability" So i wanna give thanks to you Artists and Art Lovers from the bottom of my heart (tear drop slowly falls from my face). 
But enough of that. The topic for this Blog is "Artist: Wanted Dead or Alive?" In hopes to tap in to the sometimes controversial topic for the haves and have nots in the art world, I can't help but wonder if the rules will ever change. Do you have to be dead for your art to make millions of dollars or can the starving artist get fed off the artwork they make.
I get the concept of supply and demand . I also understand that artwork from an artist that died hundreds of years ago or even 20 years ago has more value than the artwork from one of the millions of artist that still live today. The original artwork cant be duplicated the way the deceased artist did.(or so they say)

Van Gogh's
                                                                  tattoo  Duplicate

There are millions of talented artist in the United states alone, not to mention the total number of artist spread out over the rest of the world. I for one want to be able to have my cake and eat a few slices more from another bakery! Hope you get the drift... I wanna get paid!!! Is that TOO direct? WELL GOOD  
I'm pretty sure there are plenty of artist who want to drop the starving label from the front of their names.

starving artist By Suliman Onque

 I can get alittle emotional about certain subjects from time to time but i'll be fair...(for the moment) Speaking of being fair I dont think its FAIR, at all, that GALLERIES tell artist that they only deal with art from Dead artist! Thats straight up Discrimination to me! Again emotions seeping through but come on people. Think about it there are plenty of artwork that are high priced and highly sought after (done by now deceased artist) BUT HOW MUCH OF THAT MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR PRICE TAG GOES TO THE FAMILY OF THOSE ARTIST? Ok, i had another moment so let me be fair....(blows out air...inhales and exhales)
Through all my frustration I managed to Google an article that inspired me. "The Myth Of The Starving Artist" by Cory Huff  http://www.iwillteachyoutoberich.com/blog/artists-are-terrible-at-money/ I had to read pass the "artist basher" that introduced Cory Huff but after that I was fine. He basically stated that 'If you market yourself to a paying audience you will benefit quicker. Simple right, well yes and no. You gotta put the work in and have a strategy that works. You need to invest fully in your business like your life depends on it...(build a foundation) then the residual flow will start. Make a good name for yourself, be prompt when it comes to shipping orders and responding to customer emails. Throughout the article he makes good points but the best point was that all artist and crafters should VALUE their work and STOP UNDERPRICING THE GREAT TALENT THAT THEY HAVE!
I for one will take that advice and run with it. Lets all look at both sides and try to meet at a positive point somewhere in the middle. Peace Love and Art to all my Canvas Heads! This is your Art Host Sketch Painter ending yet another www.Slimsuliart.com Blog ...Catch ya later.

I dig it brother. Particularly in art, it's such a personal "service" that you provide. it's not a third party system. The gift/service comes from your fingertips to the art consumer. One is hard-pressed to understand why they should think you'd want to devalue quality work. Even worse, so called art brokers, who you'd think be more empathetic. Bottom line: Produce the goods and get paid accordingly

Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I intend to start my own blog soon, but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Word Press, or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed..

I always encourage other writers to go with their first thought...dont second guess yourself. Also write about topics that will appeal to a larger crowd. Thanks for the compliment, we will post new blogs soon.

I also agree that this kind of tradition in the art industry is unfair. But I didn't say that I'm against in this tradition. The reason why the artworks of a deceased artist becomes more valuable or expensive is to show respect to them and to their talent. These artworks will become a collectors item. A lot of biddings will be conducted before they will distribute these art pieces. As you can see these collectors are not only paying for the artwork itself, but they also pay for the skill of the artist that once lived and inspired us.

We have different type of artists around us. Out of different professions, the essay writing services tattoo arts technique is the remarkable one. These guys like to give the new ideas to people to think and they also like to translate their own thoughts in terms of images.

Hi, Body painting, or sometimes body painting, is a form of body art. Unlike tattoo and other forms of body art, body painting is temporary, painted onto the human skin, and can last several hours or about two weeks. Body painting that is limited to the face is known as face
