Art Consultant/ art agent? I've worked quite a bit with art consultants. Some (the best ones) don't take a commission from the artist -- they are paid by the corporation that hires them to find art. I used to have slides/images on file with a bunch of them, and now I have scaled back because many of them weren't able to sell anything. One danger (if you are short on inventory) is consigning too much work out to consultants who are not good at what they do (or your work does not fit into whatever their business model is). The pieces end up sitting there for months or years until you request them back. The one I am doing business with the most at this point does only pay me 50% of my retail prices, but they bring me so much business that I really don't care.

Zentangle: Meditation Through Pattern-Drawing by Maria Popova If greater creativity and more mental balance are among your new year’s resolutions, look no further than Zentangle — a type of meditation achieved through pattern-making, created by artist duo Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts. Each pattern is built one line at a time, organically combining simple patterns into complex zentangles in unplanned, unexpected ways that grow, change and unfold on the page as you enter an immersive state of flow. Totally Tangled offers a fantastic introduction to the relaxing and beautiful practice through step-by-step instructions and over 100 original tangles. We’re particularly taken with Zentagle because its basic principle — building on simple shapes and combining different patterns into complex creativity — is such a beautiful visual metaphor for our core philosophy of combinatorial creativity.
