ALI and The Mountain Team Up!

Mar 16, 2015

We are so excited to tell you about one of our many licensing projects with Brooklyn, NY based artist: Dean Russo! Art Licensing International has teamed up with The Mountain (out of Keene, NH) to develop a Dean Russo Line of T-Shirt (and some other apparel items like hats and socks). The Mountain has created a very clever propriety T-shirt hang box that uniquely displays Dean's artwork that is featured on their silk screen shirts (example attached). This line has been a tremendous seller for The Mountain.

Art and animals (particularly rescue dogs and cats) are two passions that define Dean. He uses vibrant Pop Art colors and bold abstract patterns to give a voice to his favorite subject: animals. Dean Russo’s fun and colorful images apply to people of all ages and demographics.

People love his pet images as well his celebrities, travel monuments, and wild life images. Not only do his images work for the T-shirt program, but they are also placed with numerous manufacturers for wall décor, mugs, puzzles, coasters, magnets and many more products!

The Evolution of a Painting

Jul 31, 2013

When people are purchasing items in the marketplace, they are looking at the finished goods. They will admire the art on the product, but never stop to think about where the art came from.  Licensing art is such a fascinating industry because we ALWAYS think about where the art came from.  It is our job to help the artists make images that will work for each manufacturer and eventually become a finished good!

 

We thought you might be interested in seeing how one of our painters, Karen Middleton, will transform her idea into a finished good!

 

Step 1: The artist comes up with an idea for a new piece.

 

Step 2: Rough Sketch.

 

You can see that Karen has sent a rough sketch of "firemen pets" (dogs and cats) to show the general idea of what she would like to paint. The agents provided her with feedback of ways to make the image more marketable.

 

 

Step 3: Revised Rough Sketch

 

 

You can see that Karen made the requested revisions. Then the agent gave the “thumbs up” to begin her color sketch.

 

 

Step 4: Review Color Sketch

 

 

The ALI team suggested a few more "tweaks" and then she will be "OK" to begin painting this image.

 

Stay tuned to see the final product!
