I found this great chart recently (unfortunately I cannot remember where), that displays the most popular colors used in logos and branding, as well as what your logo colors say about your business. I just had to pass it along.
As a logo designer, I have researched this information over the years in order to help me determine the best colors to use in my clients’ logos. This chart, created by Column Five, displays an integrated view of true colors.

Since I have taken on the task of resurrecting my freelance career, I have been posting feverishly my latest illustrations in several locations with the hope that someone will like my work and ultimately hire me. While doing these posts, I realized that I made multiple mistakes that really may have hurt my marketing efforts. I am listing these errors so maybe it will help any new artists, as well as myself, overcome any further advertising missteps.
Take the illustration below. Although I was very please in how it turned out, in a marketing standpoint I realized that I made several mistakes.
Whenever I post a new image I always add the name of the work, a copyright and my name to the description of the image. Always a good idea. However, upon closer inspection I discovered any real lack of marketing my talents.
