On selling things

Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , on August 20, 2008 by scratchyb

I’m a bad salesman.  Quite possibly, I’m the only person who could come back from a sales trip with a negative balance.  Which is why I don’t do it.  I have no confidence in my product, even when I have faith in what I produce.  When I managed to produce artwork in the past, it was often something I’d squirrel away against some future hope that it could be part of a portfolio.  I once harbored the dream of getting a few illustration jobs here and there.  But, the professional attitude, the know-how, and the networking simply weren’t there.

Anyway, now I’m pushing ahead my own way, and to hell with the way things are done.

In Other News . . . I’m working on another block print.  It’s a project I started in April, and had to drop for a while when I moved this summer.  Now that I’m getting everything sorted out again, it’s time to pick up this project.  It’ll be a giant centipede, printed in separate segments, probably on a nice Japanese paper, or something that appeals to me.

And, returning to my love of pen and ink, I’ve got a series of drawings cooking that should be wicked enough to live up to my moniker.
