How many of you struggle to find artist commission and contact information?
In the process of finding artists for the AwesomeTapes idea, I realized it was a bit difficult to well...FIND them in the first place, let alone to CONTACT them and to find artists within the price range I'm looking for.
So, I'm wondering if the rest of you struggle similarly when looking for somebody to commission.
What if I could create a site that provides commission and contact information for artists, sorted by price, specialty, and availability? What if I offered discounts to site members, or offered to process commission info for artists?
I think it would give you the opportunity to more quickly and easily find artists willing/available to draw your fursona. Also, the model might be more sustainable and would therefore be able to generate more-consistent growth and value to the community. I could use revenue from this idea to sell diaper tapes and to bring in higher-quality artists, eventually.
Please let me know your thoughts. If you say "No", please explain; I'm curious to know why.
