Some quotes from the color correcting process:
“I’m not done with Despair, yet.”
“Despair will just have to wait till tomorrow.”
Shortly afterwards, I made my very first sale! Thanks, Aaron!
So exciting. :)
I’m happy that my work was able to reach someone out there. :)
Launching an Etsy store is something of an experiment. I hope that it will provide a direct way to communicate with people who appreciate art (and I guess, specifically, my art). Many music artists are now using this tactic, like Amanda Palmer, who I greatly admire and found through The Dresden Dolls back when she was still the vocalist and pianist. She has a massive, dedicated fan community and they share a profound connection with one another, a collective mind that can mobilize at lightning speeds, share and create art with fast guerilla action. It’s simply amazing.
Whenever artists create something, they hope that it will touch someone. It’s their message in a bottle to the world. I think the great power of (insert official announcement voice here) the web 2.0 is that for the first time, we have access to instant feedback and dialogue.
For me, it means that I get to find out if people actually like my work. If it makes someone happy for a moment, or comforts them, or introduces them to a little magic… we have connected, and my goal is complete.
My store section is now live! Anticipate more listings soon.
Just click on the “Store” link here or in the navigation bar above.
Also, I am taking requests for any other pieces you would like to see in print or postcard form. Leave a comment on this post or email me!
