Look for customers and license your artwork across industries, licensed designers are paid something between 3% to 8%. Controlling the sales through licensing can be challenging, so it is better to look for companies you can trust regarding the sales volumes. Licensing is good to have as a one portion of the cake.
This means you have to look for your own customers and this can be time consuming. The good thing with direct selling is you get all the profits, well there might be some credit card fees etc, but they are small compared to selling through an agent or a studio.
You could look for a studio to work with, them selling your design directly to a client or through an agent, meaning the earning of the sales are not as much as you would get through a direct customer sale, but the volumes might be bigger.
Look for pattern design agent, who would make the sales for you and this way the amount you would make from a design could be a bit higher than through a pattern design studio. Also you would have better rights for the designs as working with the studio as normally studio would hold the rights for the designs.
