Celebrating our Accomplishments in the past year!

We couldn’t have done it without YOU!

Art for Licensing:

  • Over 30,000 pieces available for licensing have been uploaded from around 300 Portfolio member artists.
  • 1,000 art licensing related businesses have registered their free listing in the community directory.
  • 67% more key art directors in various product categories are now using the ALSC site to source art and artists for their programs. Just this last year, we have welcomed on leading companies in Gift, Greeting Cards, Calendars, Fabric, Flags, Crafts, Puzzles and Home Decor to name a few.
  • Art Licensing Show gives artists/agents a forum to connect with art directors and privately show their art. We are not agents, but we do hear from members that many deals have been made or are in the making.

Groups:  Picking up steam are our wonderfully supportive online groups.

  • The 2nd Thursday Chat led by Annie Troe and Madeline Faiella. is by far the most popular group on Art Licensing Show. Featured Chat Guests this year included, Susan January VP at Leanin’ Tree, Tamra Sundboom Voigt, Account Executive at Masterpiece Studios, and J’net Smith of All Art Licensing. (Transcripts are in the group if you missed them).
  • The Art Licensing Show Art Challenges group has become a positive group as members share and give feedback on art created for the challenges. More than 750 pieces of art have been posted for these calls for submissions. Judges for these challenges included creative directors from Leanin’ Tree, Robert Kaufman, and Paper Magic Group.
  • The Trends Group is continually posting insightful color and trend updates, thanks to the leadership of artist JJ Galloway.
  • Other popular groups this year were the Call for Submissions, ALSC NEWSboard, Greeting Cards & Paper, and of course the All Member Group.

Media & IT

  • Produced a series of 18 videos answering top questions for Art Licensing Show artists.
  • Blogs on Trends, Portfolio Previews and Licensing Deals and the Limelight Artists have been very popular.
  • We re-released the member-designed art promotional Holiday Coloring Book. It now has nearly 17,000 free downloads. This was a project that started in 2015 in a 2nd Thursdays Chat group brainstorm.
  • Upgraded to a bigger and faster server with even more security to accommodate many gigabytes of visual information flowing through the site.


  • We hosted our annual Art of Licensing Monday Morning Meet-Up at the Javits again for Surtex and National Stationery Show artists.  We gave away over $1,000 worth of prizes donated by members, coaches, and manufacturers. We networked and worked with artists and met with manufacturers at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, Atlanta Gift Shows and CHA in Phoenix.
  • Art Licensing Show was seen in trade publications; Art Buyer, Total Art Licensing, and Art & Design Licensing Sourcebook, which have been distributed to top industry trade shows around the world!
  • Cherish Flieder was invited be a keynote speaker and share about Art Licensing Show at the Surface Pattern Design Guild, Rise, Design & Shine’s Folio Focus Class, and ArtBizJam.
  • Social Media outreach has experienced significant growth and new members find us regularly through our presence on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and of course on our nearly 15K member group on LinkedIn where it all started.

Thank You!

Launching a 24 / 7 community site that has been a rewarding challenge. It’s wonderful to see so many artists and companies really begin to flourish in their business as a result of busy days and nights working toward this vision!

In addition to my artist husband, Benjamin Hummel, who has been my biggest cheerleader of all (and producing a few videos for us). I also thank Joanne Fink (an industry leader and best-selling creator of the Zenspirations® brand), as she has been a gracious mentor to me throughout this whole process of designing and overseeing this site. Special thanks to Kristi Caterson for her weekly support and encouragement. Also, many thanks for the team of Art Licensing Show developers and IT folks that keep the site up and running are core to making this site a reality. It is a joy to work with so many intelligent and passionate tech gurus.

Also, thank you to each volunteer who has helped in the groups, on social media, and with the blog posts, you are too numerous to name, but we all are so very appreciative for the many hands that make our community great!

Last but not least, this small but mighty artist-funded startup made a huge leap this last year in hiring a part-time communications expert to assist with our marketing, strategic growth and art challenges. Valerie Hart’s contribution and passion for this vision is unequaled. I am eternally grateful for her dedication to our awesome group! We couldn’t do this without her!

And most of all, thank you to each member for your continued belief and involvement in our mission to create an online portfolio networking site for art licensing. Your dedication to your craft, your business, and your community is truly outstanding. I am proud to have each of you on board.
