Sorry for the Spammy Postings

I posted this, and then a ton of my old posts posted right after this, burying it. So, to reiterate:

Building the Store, Brick by Brick

I've been working for three straight days adding items to my store. It still have lots of spitting and polishing to do, but all but two items are listed. In total I will have 42. I have a list of ideas and pieces that I want to do, so I'm sure that I will be able to reach my goal of 60 items within a reasonable amount of time. So, all the folks who have been asking to buy art and cards from me can now easily do so, and that makes me happy. All the money I earn will go into making more art, trying new techniques and branching out. Learning. And buying boring things like rigid mailing envelopes. *yawn*.

I'm looking forward to cutting the ribbon on Labor Day! Spock is unimpressed, but I'm excited.

Still Here

 


I have done a piece since completing the Hamlet poster, but no peeking for ya'll. Some pieces are personal, and one of a kind. So, you get a picture of linochad as a consolation prize. It was on my desk posing for this photo, but within days it had worked its way around the carpeted areas of our house.

I worked very hard today on inputing items into my Artfire store. I haven't made it to 60 items yet, but one year of hard work has resulted in 40 items. That's enough for me at this point. Since the art isn't flowing in a fast and furious manner that it once was, it's time for grunt work and search engine optimization. Ugh. Facebook. Ugh. There must be a better way. Somebody send me a Google+ invite, I implore you.

The perfect is the enemy of the good. I will be ready to cut the ribbon on my good store by September 5th.

Final Hamlet Poster

Here's the final artwork that I used for San Jose Youth Shakespeare's production of Hamlet. The play is halfway through it's run, and it's excellent. See it if you are in the area!

If you are with a non-profit Shakespeare company, and would like to use this image for your poster, please do. Just let me know, and I will send you a high res image.
