Licensing & Publishing

Does StoryPeople publish anybody else's work?

We’re the only ones who are licensed to publish Brian’s work & we’ve been so busy playing the game of getting it out into the world, that we really haven’t had the time to take on other artists & writers. Perhaps sometime in the future, but at the moment, no.

Do you ever do tours of your studio?

We have all sorts of people coming through here, from college art students & elementary kids, to visitors walking in off the street. The studio can be a little daunting, but once you get that it’s all about playing with ideas & paint & people, it’s pretty easy to have fun. There always seems to be an interesting conversation, or two, going on.

If you’d like to set up a studio tour, just give us a call at 1.866.564.4552 & we’ll figure out a good time to fit that into the schedule.

Do you ever donate stuff to non-profits?

A large part of what we do is building community: sharing our stories, diving into the world & taking on the stuff that we see missing, believing in the people who are making a world that works for everyone.

In the past couple of years, we’ve raised over a quarter of a million dollars for AIDS research, 9/11, & abused women & children’s shelters , among others, with the work that we produce. We consider it one of the gifts of what we do.

If our work can help you make a difference, we’d love to hear about it. Give us a call, or email TheCrew@storypeople.com to see what’s possible.

I'd like to use one of Brian's quotes in a new book I'm writing. What do I need to do to get permission for that?

We’ll need a written request for use of the quote (so we can put it in our files). Once we take a look at what you’re up to, we’ll send you a release (so you can put it in your files). We’ll want attribution & a copy of the published book, or piece. All of it’s pretty standard stuff.
