Jigsaw Puzzle deal

I recently entered into a contract to have one of my paintings made into a jigsaw puzzle.



Here's the puzzle company website: http://tinyurl.com/3lcb6xs

Btw, I know some artists will think this is horrible. How could I degrade my artwork by putting it on something as silly as a puzzle?! Well, I kind of like the idea that my artwork will be seen and enjoyed by thousands in the "mainstream" population, not just art collectors and critics.
What do you think?

Re: Jigsaw Puzzle deal

I think it's wonderful, having your art seen not only by art collectors, great idea. Been thinking about such thing but I think I'm not good enough yet ^_^
Congratulations!

I didn't enter anything. I was contacted by someone from www.buffalogames.com after they saw my art on the internet. Look over their site and see if they use art similar to yours and, if so, ask about it through their "contact us" page.

Re: Jigsaw Puzzle deal

Congratulations! and laugh at anyone who thinks jigsaw puzzles are less than art. Some of the really old ones are collectors items today and worth a fortune...and it's because of the art printed on the surface!

I've sold coffee mugs, tee shirts, tote bags, etc. with my art on the front. Didn't look at it as putting my art down....look at it as raising the image of a purely mundane item!
