I want to start a tshirt and accessories business but I need someone to draw my designs, since I am not a designer.  How would I find one?  Any ideas?

My cousin Neesha of neesha.etsy.com is a freelance artist. She went to Ringling School of Art & Design. She has quite a resume for just getting out of college a year ago; such as at least 3 childrens books and working for Carters designing images for their baby clothes. Also she has done some website logos such as this one... http://www.mainegreenmaids.com/index.html

I would say contact her!

Not all artists or designers are created equal. Many have unique or comfortable styles, and some are artists and some not. You really have to shop around and figure out a budget as well. What can you pay, or what have you decided to pay for someone to design a single item? A designer will consider how much you will potentially make and incorporate your potential profit into their design fee - at least, the smart ones will. Still, it's a design buyers' market out there, with many of them looking for any and all work. If you do a search for "freelance designers" you might find folks at auction sites looking for their next job.
