This past Saturday, I participated in the Folk Fest Craft Sale event, which was my first ever craft sale... My setup was basically an array of small watercolours, complete with a sign advertising custom paintings upon request. Sold a handful of paintings, but things were fairly slow. What made it worth it: was one little kid who asked for a transformer type robot with a T on it's chest (for Trevor) half an hour later, Trevor and his dad came back, they were ecstatic over the result of the painting- so much, that they requested another for Ollie, Trevor's friend whom was having a birthday that very day. Cool. cool beans.
Watched Halo's animated project (Halo Legends) recently, which is a similar idea to the Animatrix film- you get about 6-8 animation studios telling an array of short stories in a array of styles. Bit of a hit/miss eperience, but fun to watch none-the-less.
Messy vector piece :) This was super fun to make, I think I feel a whole series like this coming on...
On a funny side note: some random from New Zealand emailed me this morn- apparently they found my art through Google Images, and wanted permission to get a Tattoo of my "Greek Lunch" Medusa piece. lol. cool.
My booth sign :) so I'm making the trip out to Calgary's con in a little over a month, get to meet the likes of Data and Spock from Star Trek, Apollo from Battlestar G, the Doctor guy from Stargate Atlantis... and not to mention a sea of other talented illustrators. Should be a blast.
Im also playing with the idea of heading to the San Francisco con next year- If I can make up a chunk of the trip in sales, then why not??
just some vector experimentation. I'll get the scanner warmed up in the next day or two and get some other stuff up soon.
I also have a bunch of great stuff that I really shouldn't post! (phooey) some pieces that will be in a gallery in a month or two, as well as my submissions to Calgary's 2010 artbook... it's hard not to share work your excited about...
