More Training..... [Oct. 11th, 2004|05:43 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Moving right along! Training is going splendidly - Matt is learning quickly! Now he knows how to keep the mailing list maintained, how to make the "printing lists" (which prints need to be made that day), the "sending lists" (which prints need to be sent that day) and the address lists & label-making. In addition he learned more about how to keep all of the orders straight and the payment statuses maintained (that will still take a few more goes to get it all down, it's incredibly involved, but it's going well!). One thing - attention fellow eBayers - this affects all buyers & sellers alike - Paypal has been wonky for about 24 hours and has NOT been sending out the "Payment Notifications" to the sellers! I've been having to log-in manually and record all payments received for the past 24 hour interval - the email notifications HAVE NOT been sending out - I don't know IF they will, but they haven't yet, lol. So any sellers out there might want to check their paypal accounts to see if they've received any payments (also if you use paypal shopping carts on your website - I had a few orders from my site this morning and still haven't received the paypal notices!). And buyers - you might want to send a personal email along with your paypal payment to let the seller know that you've sent payment, just in case. NOTE: - I have ALL of mine in order now, so no need to contact me, lol - I'm just mentioning it as a public service announcement for fellow eBayers =)

In addition, I've been working on some new and older canvas prints, and that kind of thing. We're getting really excited about seeing smallgirl and tigerpixieart this week!! >^__^<

The frogs in my yard are LOVING the new gazebo and all of our new plants - they are ALL over it all, lol!!!!

I'll probably be doing computer stuff the rest of the evening, but I'll be painting tomorrow =) I am thinking about doing a new Tattooed Fairy series! Some of you may remember (from a couple of years ago) my old Tattooed Fairy series! Kind of a sad story - it was based on a fan/model who had sent me a bunch of reference photos of herself. Then after I was most of the way through the series, the photographer contacted me and asked me not to sell prints of the series, since he was the copyright owner, and that the model didn't have the rights to the images, etc. etc. (I think he had some falling out with the model, hehe). It was such a cool idea for a series though, I'd like to re-do it completely different. Moral of the story: Models - be sure to always ask for joint reproduction rights, and Artists - ALWAYS be sure to secure rights for ANY photo references!!!

Okay, back to work!

S'one of the reasons I don't generally work with people. Getting permission to use photos I've taken in heritage sites, safari parks etc is complicated enough of a process :)
Besides...I want one day to wander over to a baby tiger & ask if they mind me using their likeness :)

The new series sounds great! Congratulations to Matty, getting so much info absorbed so fast! If we ever sell stuff on ebay Rich stays well clear (or complains) hehe.

So weird you are mentioning your tattoo series, because just lastnight I was checking you back entries of your journal so see what your earlier stuff looked like and I came across them.
I can't believe how different your style is now, so much more detailed!
Redoing them is a great idea.

They weren't exactly representative of my style back then - I actually needed "realistic" figure drawings for a portfolio for Disney, lol. The model for them was very pretty though - she went on to work with a bunch of other photographers - I should look her up and see if she'd let me use her again (assuming she got the rights to her current work, hehe). Hmm.... where on earth did you see them in my journal? The black & white drawings? There aren't any of them online, hehe.

About 2 1/2 years ago, I'd say! They were drawings for when I needed more for my portfolio - an Asian girl with different kanji tattoos!

I have read on some of the boards that PayPal is not even letting some buyers pay for their items. So I guess everyone will have to patient if that is happening. :)

I'm glad everything is going so well with the training for you! That's awesome ^__^

Eek about paypal, I hope it all gets fixed soon! No wonder things have been so wonky with me trying to buy and sell things! O_o

I hope you decide to do the tattoo series, I would love that! That would be a set I would have to collect for sure, hehe.

I have some pix of you from my Call for Models! Some of them though I believe you've used for paintings yourself since then, hehe. I don't think I've seen photos of your tattoos - how many do you have?

Matt learns fast! Sounds like theres sooooo much to do!
Ooo, I never heard about the first series of the tattooed faries as I didn't have an lj or anything then! Would be great to start a new series with a model that is allowed to give the pictures!

Paypal

Paypal seems to be working today *cross fingers*. Thanks again Jasmine for the info you gave me on doing prints, it's made it possible for me to make a decent living and I really appreciate it.
You are seriously such a peach!

Re: Paypal

Yay!!! Hehe, I've spent all day trying to figure out who paid me in the meantime - a lot of payments went through without the normal paypal notification email - grrrr..... I think I've got it all sorted out now, but what a hassle! Hopefully this will never happen again!!!

Oh! Anytime! I try to help out where I can =)
