I had been wanting to have a booth at the Celebration Arts & Crafts festival in October, so I called the event people and was told that all work for this particular show must be 100% "handmade" (and since I was mostly thinking of selling my prints & merchandise rather than originals, that won't really work). There's not enough time for me to crank out a bunch of originals just for that show either.|
Oh well. Besides, Matt & I are going to a wedding out at Clearwater Beach the Friday of that same weekend, which would be cutting it pretty close. I guess I'll just hold out for the Celebration Art festival (which is more appropriate anyways since it's all fine art rather than more crafty) in the spring. I'm also planning to try to do some conventions and fantasy oriented shows and festivals too >^__^<
In other annoying news, my shipment of merchandise (the postcards, lightswitch plates, and shirts) is ALL BACKORDERED so there will be a bit of a delay there, which is really, really annoying. But in a way I guess it's a good thing, since it means all of my stuff is selling well to the retail shops, etc. Still annoying though, I was hoping to have all of that stuff up on my site this week. It's my own fault for procrastinating though - I should have ordered it earlier =P
Oh! Airborne Express just came - I received my advance copy of the upcoming Juxtapoz magazine (my favourite art magazine!!!) - I've got an ad in there - woohoo! It looks great, just like I wanted it to. It will be nice if I have all of that new stuff on my site in time for the magazine release - I'm not sure if I will in time or not =P Funnily enough, on the page after the page my ad is on there is an ad for a store that just started selling a bunch of my stuff though, lol.
CONGRATULATIONS again to my wonderful cousins!!! For those who still don't know, malikasaghir is having a baby!!!
I have so darned much work to do - a couple of book projects, commissions stacking up again, orders, email, website stuff, new paintings to paint, etc. etc. etc. I'm feeling kind of blah though (hence this long rambling post). I'll probably first try to update my website with some of my newer paintings though, so it will be relatively up to date.
HOLY COW - I have wanted THIS PAINTING since I was 12 years old. I've seen it up on eBay a couple of times now, hopefully it won't sell until I have some extra spending money enough to snatch it up, hehe.
Okay, I'm off to do a little updating on my website =P I've rambled enough. I'm doing good though - I didn't let the new stuff pile up too long this time!!! ;0)
