How many paintings do you think there are out there? In galleries and museums?
A few million?
And out of them all, there are a handful of paintings so recognizable by people from all over the world and of all ages that they will probably be admired and talked about until the end of what we call human civilization.

In recognition of these paintings, here are the ten most famous paintings of all time.

I believe that right now there are more artists on this Planet, more writers choosing to self-publish or just posting their stories on blogs, more painters selling prints and original artwork on deviantart, etsy, and the likes, more sculptors, more singers and aspiring movie makers trying to get more subscribers on YouTube than ever before.

Maybe you’re reading this post and you’re telling yourself that you don’t make art for that. You create art just for yourself. But for that to be true, you’d never want anyone to read your stories. You’d be the only one who knows you’re a writer or painter or singer. Continue reading “Art and The Internet”

How much are you willing to pay?
Okay, all jokes aside, “how much” depends on a lot of factors such as:
- Your particular set of skills (can you do your own cover/interior formatting?)
- Relatives/people you know (if your cousin’s a book designer/freelance editor…)
- How big of a book you have (yes, this affects the overall production cost, especially when it comes to editing.)
- The quality you’re aiming for
- Whether or not you’re planning on having both an e-book version and a print version of your book Continue reading “How Much Does it Cost to Self-Publish a Book?”
