Whew! [Jul. 24th, 2003|04:26 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Ok - I got almost thirty pieces shipped off at the Post Office today. It only took, like, ten hours to get everything packaged, printed, etc. Geez. Can't complain though! Usually this is a very slow season for me, so hopefully my busy season (fall/winter) will be even better.

My newest contact lenses came via UPS today - yay! My old ones are all pretty much worn out (I wear them into the ground, lol), so it's nice to have a fresh pair. My new ones are just slightly bigger than my real iris (for an exaggerated, cartoonish effect) and are jet black (again, very cartoony). I like them very much - I'll post some photos perhaps tomorrow!

I'm going to begin painting shortly - I've got a couple of things I need to do online first, and then I'll get to painting! Watch me here. Later tonight perhaps I'll try to get to some emails....

Tisk, tisk, Jasmine! Speaking as a former Optometric Assistant, you shouldn't be wearing your contacts into the ground, it's not good for the health of your eyes! ;)

Yes! Do post a piccie of your new jet black eyes! :)

Eep, I know ::sheepish:: I usually keep a pair for a year or two. I am addicted to special effects lenses, so I often buy several pairs at a time, and I try to justify multiple pairs by making them last as long as possible! I do take good cair of them though, maintain them thoroughly even if it's a pair I haven't worn for a while, etc. =)

HeHe, as long as you take good care of them! ;)

Aren't the special effects lenses cool?! I use to have a bunch of them (without rx) when I worked in the trade but I had to get rid of them a while back. :(

Hehe! I can imagine! You mail all your work in tubes? Are they the priority mailing tubes? I've never tried them before.

Nah, I just get the cheap ones at Office Max (it's easier than going to the Post Office all the time, and they sometimes don't have the ones I need!). I use tubes for anything larger than a 9"x12". Smaller than that, I put in plastic sheet protectors with a some stiff backing board that I buy from http://www.clearbags.com

You know....

It's funny, what with art being so hard to sell, in theory, and the economy being so not-so-great...in theory....most of the artists I know are doing better than they've done in years. And I know I'm busy enough!!! Hooray for the starving artist!
