The ALI Team makes a "Stand" towards a Healthy Lifestyle!

Dec 23, 2013

The Art Licensing team is working towards living a healthier lifestyle here in Vermont. Ok, so we might be a far stretch from George Costanza’s “desk bed,” but we still felt so “BLAH” while sitting down all day (if you haven’t seen that episode of Seinfeld, you should watch this clip).  Sitting down at a desk for 40+ hours a week can cause many issues with your body including (but not limited to) your heart, your hips, your spine, and even your shoulders!

 

Our CEO, Jack Appelman, heard our requests for option to stand up, so he ordered us some Varidesks. These stand up desks are an excellent way for us to stay energized and engaged with co-workers. The best part about these desks is the option to move it down to a “regular” desk when we do not want to stand. Aside from the numerous physical benefits we here at Art Licensing International have already found after using the stand up desk, we have also found the desk to be a great way to get our blood and creative juices flowing.

Coming soon: art from the Stephen Huneck Gallery!

Sep 27, 2013

Stephen Huneck believed in the healing powers of dogs, nature, art and love. It was his wish that he could help others heal as well as heal himself, so he created these whimsical and charming images to inspire dog lovers of all ages. Along with his paintings, he created an amazing retreat for dogs and their owners called Dog Mountain. Dog Mountain is set on 150 acres on a private mountain top spot in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Dogs are not only welcome here, they are cherished! The dogs are free to run, play, swim and best of all… meet other dogs! This haven is covered with hiking trails and dog ponds. Wildflowers abound in the summer and snowshoeing is a favorite activity in the winter. 

  

There is also a Dog Chapel at Dog Mountain. Stephen believed that Grieving for a lost dog is one aspect of the Dog Chapel, but it is equally important to celebrate the joy of living and the bond between dogs and their owners. Stephen Huneck wanted people and dogs to have the most fun they possibly could.

After a life long battle with depression, the artist tragically took his own life on 1/7/10. The staff is determined to keep Dog Mountain going in his memory. The amazing team at Dog Mountain wanted to share Stephen’s feel good pieces with the world, so they signed with ALI.

Art Licensing International featured in the Wall Street Journal

Apr 30, 2013

 

 

 

 

If you saw yesterday's Wall Street Journal, you might have noticed there was a great article about the business of licensing artwork, and of course they reached out to the experts.  They interviewed Art Licensing CEO, Jack Appelman, to get the skinny on the history of the business, and even got some first hand testimonies from our artists, Mindy Sommers and Cory Carlson. These two artists  have been very successful with Art Licensing, and have grown with us in this ever-changing industry. You can see the full article online at The Wall Street Journal.  You'll even see a color photo of one of Cory Carlson's images.  That particular image has been used for puzzles, wall tiles, and even cross-stitch patterns.  Yes, we like to get our artists the biggest bang for their buck, or their brush you could say.
