It's hard to believe, but after a 17 month-long process, my reproductions are finally on their way to stores! I keep pinching myself to make sure I'm not dreaming!
I initially wrestled with the idea of licensing my work. Could I really turn my original designs over to someone else for reproduction? Would I become a "sell-out?"
After lots of thought, I realized that my reproductions could reach far more people than I ever could on my own. I think of them as little "Chicken Lips" ambassadors that can go out and spread the word about my art!
Stepping into this world of reproductions in NO way means that I'm going to slack off on my original creations for sale - quite the contrary! My studio is full of new pieces that I'm working on and I'm gearing up to work 4 art shows this Fall. I plan to keep the reproductions and my originals separate, so I will not be selling them online or at any of my shows.
