Below are a few recommended resources that we’ve used and have recommended to others. We thought it would make sense to gather these key resources in one place for you to consider:
- ART BOOKS WE RECOMMEND
- NEED AN INSTANT WEBSITE/ BLOG?
- NEED WEB HOSTING?
- WANT TO SELL YOUR DESIGNS?
- WANT TO PUBLISH COMICS, GRAPHIC NOVELS, ETC?
We Recommend WORDPRESS to create a free online web presence:
This is the software that we use to run this site. It is the quickest and easiest way to launch a web site, especially one that works hand-in-hand with search engines. And it’s free!
It’s easy, no tech expertise needed, will allow you to communicate with visitors and connect with your Facebook and Twitter pages as well. It will also allow you to grow to another level after that, once you’re ready.
Go here and sign up for the self-hosted version. It will then show you themes that work best as gallery sites.
Or click the logo below for the version to use with your own hosting service:
- Dependable hosting with good support
- One-click WordPress installation (our suggested platform for managing your site and content)
- Plenty of storage and bandwidth
- Competitive pricing
We Recommend ZAZZLE.com to create posters, mugs, t-shirts…you name it!:

We Recommend LULU.com as a great print on demand (POD) option:
We recommend it because it is easy to use, professional look and feel, very affordable (you don’t pay for anything you don’t sell), and it’s a great way to fine tune exactly what your audience is willing (or not) to buy from you in print.
