Tara Reed dragged me kicking and screaming into this, really she did, well maybe not. She caught me in a good mood at the Surtex show and so I thought what do I have to lose (other then my reputation).
I stepped outside my comfort zone in a BIG WAY when I did this! This is me yappingON THE SPOT
from my Surtex booth. If I could do this over again I would have made sure I was not moving around like I am. I would have not repeated my words over and over. I would have actually worked out a plan of what I was going to say. Shoulda coulda woulda does not live here anymore. I just winged it, so what you see is what you get, the real me in real time.
Thanks Tara for encouraging me to step outside my comfort zone, it was kind of fun. The best part was having Steve Mumm of the famous and inspiring Debbie Mumm® Studio make a guest appearance.
As you can imagine there is allot more to my art licensing story then what you see in this video, however if you want a teeny tiny peek, please watch the video.
You have reached a blog that has "Zip", that's me Sue Zipkin. This is the place where I will share my latest design news and other hopefully interesting stuff. I am a mom, wife, friend, artist, designer,illustrator, cook, and sometimes cleaner. I have been designing artwork for products for thousands of years ( more like 2 1/2 decades ). I am blessed to be able to share my art with the world and I thank everyone who has been kind enough to purchase products with my designs on them. I hope to inspire others to pursue their dreams .

Sue Zipkin is not a manufacturer.
I am an artist who licenses reproduction rights of my art to manufacturers who then produce the art on their products. All questions or concerns about the actual product and wholesale inquires need to be directed to those manufacturers.
Creating handmade items
I encourage those creating handmade sewing projects from my fabric to sell on the web, craft shows and the like. I love handmade items. However, if you are a person planning to mass produce products using my designs (whether fabrics or incorporating any of my other artwork or products) that would require a license from me. Please contact me direct.
Thanks, Sue Zipkin
