|Paints for an upcoming Avenger piece, sketches of which are contained beloooowww|
I haven't "thrown up" any colored pieces in some time. (Read: puked). Consider this penance, although the avenger set is nowhere near done, and I won't be posting it for a week or so.
Rest assured that I have plenty of painted up art nested. Over the last month+ I've been contacted by allot of people wanting to collaborate in art shows or art products - none of which have promised me the pile of riches my wallet craves, but all of which are promising something interesting.
I'll learn my lesson after all is settled and from there make a strong consideration on whether or not to do more such projects, but in the meanwhile that means a bit of an art drought (minus all of these sketches).
As an artist, many of you know this, but you can get propositions from dozens and dozens of people all acting important and legit. They all want one thing - your art. Well, don't give it to them! Think of how flaky 90% of the people you've ever met have been and then consider that every penny they promise you will likely be divided in 3 or 4... So why did I agree to all of the current things I'm working on?
One of the projects was a buddy. One of them sounded like it could lead to good exposure - which is starting to look really doubtful. One of them is for a retarded art show that just happened to hold my interest because it's so wacky. One of them has to do with an international show and a really passionate fellow. And one of them is a local gallery which has made good on some sales and good events.
Needless to say, for the rest of this month, I will be absolutely throwing up art - even if you don't see it. After I get through the cleanup, I'll fill the internets with more colored pixels.
No sob story here. I know what I'm getting in to (mostly). I'll let you all know how it goes (if you're paying attention) and maybe it will help you make good decisions after future propositions.
