I was part of the Avondale-Estates Rail Arts Distric Art Crawl this past Saturday, and it was a lot of fun! Technically since I work for The Academy Theatre I was in charge of the building and Artists Market and everything, but Heather and Stephanie came and helped set up my booth and watched it for me while I had to run around so it all worked out.
The best part of the whole event was that I actually sold some pieces of my artwork, which made me feel very good. I sold two of my children's rocking chairs [pictures coming soon!], got a commission for a third chair, and a commission for a mural. I also sold several bookmarks, and postcards and random things, and overall it was lots of fun! Tiring...but lots of fun!
Now I am working on getting Jared to split a table with me at AWA...I think I might wait on DragonCon. I want to actually go to the Con and see what things are like and what sort products I should put together [that and it's rather expensive to get a table and I want to make sure I will make money if I spend that much on a table!] but we'll see perhaps that will change in the next month or so.
I'm currently creating props for the Greenfield Hebrew Academy's production of Willy Wonka. Pictures will be forthcoming! They are lots of fun!
I am also working on costume and props design, for my friend Stephanie's play Steampunk Tempest [that's just the working title, real title coming soon!] which will be lots of fun, and will be possibly going up in June. Thirteen pairs of goggles...oi! 0_o
Also, have a Captain Hook painting in the works as well! Hooray! I will post sketches as soon as I can find my camera cord.
That's it for now! I have to go soon and pick up the other two rocking chairs from my mom's house and get those base coated. Yay, for making a living from painting!
Oh yeah, and as soon as my old business cards run out. I'm going to make this my art blog again. It's much easier to upload pictures to.
