Licensing Art Work - Please Advise!

Four years ago, I developed a hobby with acrylic paints and I have a collection of work that I want to send out and see where it can take me.

I am interested in the possibility of creating a line with my work, consisting of greeting cards and various novelty items.

Someone told me about http://www.mosaiclicensing.com/
Does anyone have any experience with them? How does this process work? What exactly will they tell me and how will they evaluate my work? Do they sell artists' ideas to companies?

I don't think anyone here on this forum is familiar with mosaic licensing. I can check with one of our members who is an artist to see.

They're not one of the standard companies; nor have they been in business long enough to make someone who licensed content (which I used to do) want to use them. Their terms are a little unusual.

Were I you, I'd think about a small do-it-yourself business using Cafe Press, Zazzle, Etsy, and similar service companies, and local venues. Post cards and greeting cards, and calendars have buyers. You might also look at what a local printer can do with and for you.

If you're not a skilled Photoshop user, you might want to hire a graphic artists to work with you in terms of transforming your photographs of artworks to effectively work with digital color printing.
