Hi everyone. I would love to start selling my artwork but I am having trouble deciding if it would really sell. I obviously like them but I'm not sure if they appeal to a lot of people. What do you guys think, would my artwork sell? Thanks for your help!

Here are some examples-

Where are you thinking of selling the work? At shows, or online?

There's NOTHING at a craft show, or on Etsy, anybody NEEDS. NOTHING.

I see that style often, using retro this-n-that, so I would say yes, that's a marketable style for the moment. My thoughts on art are, why bother putting in the work just to sell a one-off for a lousy $40 (hey, if you've got the guts to sell them for high prices, more power to ya, but you seem to lack the confidence to do that), when you can turn those images into graphics and slap them on stationery, posters, calendars, mugs, t-shirts...heck, you can even put them on i-stuff cases and laptop sleeves these days, which that kind of art looks GREAT on. Check out Redbubble, Zazzle, and Spreadshirt. You can make money online - while you're sleeping, for goodness' sake.

I was thinking of selling prints on Etsy. And CraftyChef- that sort-of crossed my mind. I was thinking of printing them on fabric and making pillows, but again wasn't sure... just thinking about it. I will definitely check out those websites. Thanks for the help!
