I’ve received so much interest on twitter from authors who are interested in using my paintings in relation to my work; I thought I’d just write out a quick post to explain how this can work.
Firstly all my paintings are original and mainly in watercolour. For a brief history have a look at my retrospective book http://mjforster.com/retrospective-book/
There are some images at below that provide an even shorter synopsis.
So essentially for those of you who are self publishing it’s simply a question of negotiating a price for the painting. It’s always good to see the author with ownership of the work so you would receive the original you choose and the rights to use it on the initial run of your first edition.
If the book is successful and goes into a larger print run on an additional edition we would need to work out a commission per copy for using the same image again. It’s all to be discussed, I’m sure I can help out. Any questions just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
