21st century digital printing technologies continue to provide opportunities for free-lance surface pattern designers. Joining the likes of Spoonflower, Society6 and Kekacase, we can now add BucketFeet.
What makes BucketFeet different is that their sneakers are sold in retail shops as well as online, and with generous artists' compensation.
According to their FAQ, the artist retains all rights to his artwork. If the artwork is chosen for a print, the artist receives a $2.00 royalty on each print sold. If the art is chosen to be produced on sneakers, the artist receives a one time flat fee of $250.00, plus a $1.00 royalty for every pair sold, plus two free pair of shoes.

Sounds like a it might be a great opportunity to have your artwork seen! Is it one you would consider?
