Acrylic painting feels somewhat tedious. I am enjoying it, but maybe it is not for me. I used to do a lot of detailed pencil drawings and ink stippling. Now, my flavor seems to be watercolor and inky cartoons.
Maybe this is a natural process for me-- breaking down the complex, realistic style based on references into something created within my head?
I don't have a date or goal yet for going to an art market. I really should set one.
However, my strategy is just throwing everything at the wall. I've got a couple of ideas to paint on canvas, 2 collages done, a written piece I want to mount, stickers, and I hope to create a number of hand painted cards for sale. There's another wood craft I am thinking of doing as well.
Hey #mastoart friends, I have a question. I'm planning on going to an art market with my work.
My idea is to sell mostly handmade watercolor cards. Though, I have a couple paintings and collages.
I have a name, but now I wonder if I'm building too many "brands?"
T-shirts under one name, cards under another, and my writing under my name.
I think the typewriter purchase was a good idea. Whatcha think? https://pixelfed.social/p/sikkdays/5942262051229286
Not sure what to do next. I've affixed half of the fortunes I've received in my life to this board.
More details, maybe some gold lines in between some of,the fortunes?
What's happening with me and my goals in June. https://ko-fi.com/Blog/Post/June-Update-M4M6WEM9?justpublished=true
This is my goal for 2019, freeing myself from Adobe. I'm thinking I may dual boot the desktop to Linux to help me on this goal. Gotta keep windoze for the partner. :)
Sleepy #Mastoart rant--
I should have restricted myself to using FOSS apps for #36DaysOfType. This would help me get more familiar. In university I spent an entire semester, in one class using only After Effects for the projects. That worked really well.
If you're here for decentralization, you might like letter M and N. Much of the rest of the alphabet has been focused on #MentalHealth
'm doing #36DaysOfType and like much of my art, I'm exploring my emotions and #MentalHealth. This is what I wrote about #Hustle for the letter H-- https://savethis.space/2019/afraid-of-what-we-find
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
