Here's what Art Launch Blueprint students saying:

“For the last 2 1/2 years, I have been working on trying to become a full-time artist. Last year I quit my day job and ventured out on my own to see if I could actually make it happen. Your workshop and emails have given me the confidence that I could actually do this. I am continually impressed by the genius of your advice and guidance. It is the most concise and relevant information I have found and I am so grateful I discovered your website. Essentially, I was getting ready to give up and go back to a corporate job and then you laid it out so brilliantly how to sell my artwork online and make a living with my creative skills. am inspired to continue with a new perspective. For example, I went from selling work once a month to once a week, in a couple of months.”
Omaste Witkowski, Artist

“What made Chris’ approach different from the rest, as it was making sense to me. I would ask Chris an occasional question and his answers always felt genuine. So I signed up for Art Launch Blueprint. I’m doing the work, slowly getting the people to sign up for my newsletter. Taking my time and getting organized. For the first time, I feel like I’m on the right track.”
Shawn Wilken, Artist

“Wow. I've been an artist for many years, mostly paintings but also some drawings. I've had some gallery showings etc and have always worked like a dog to get the word out. Most of my sales have been through word of mouth and from people seeing my work in someone's living room.  I've never had any defined strategy for my business but have been feeling like I needed one yesterday. For example, everything I read advises me to get onto social media. (I'm only on LinkedIn and don't do much with it). Then I read about your approach. Wow! I have to say thanks for putting it out there and the good of you for not charging the moon. Art Launch Blueprint is well worth the few hundred dollars – which is less than one painting sale.”
Michael Christidis, Artist

“I must say it is gold. Really jam-packed with information. I appreciate all the time and effort put into this. Really glad I got it. It's something as an artist been trying to do just didn't really find the ‘how's'. Now it's just a matter of putting in the work.”
Jose De Olio, Artist

“I followed your advice on starting a mailing list and it is really paying off. I just had a mini-comic printed and already had 46 orders in the last three days, many through my mailing list, and a web-zine maintainer asked if he can interview me. So :-)”
Ayal Pinkus, Artist

“During my first art launch, I offered all the original paintings. I sold a dozen paintings and ended up with about $2,500 USD and probably could have sold more.”
Charlene Marsh, Artist

“This workshop has kinda changed my life. Before it, art was something I did but never bothered to sell (thinking ‘what’s the point, I won’t make any money’). Now, because you’ve altered my mindset about profiting from art – I have sold several works even before starting to launch. I have stories going in the UK national press about my work in the next few weeks. Seriously, it would never have happened without you. Thanks for making my life nicer!”
Boo Patterson, Artist
