    It's Harder Than it Looks

    This selling your art thing is a lot more difficult than I had planned it out in my head. The more research I do, the more I learn. Not to mention the fact that I listed one lonely ACEO in my Etsy shop and it's got over 90 views and no purchase yet. Hmm...

    I learned I'll need business cards if I wanna do logos for people and I need to get some loot together to set up a website. There's a bunch of other red tape I'd have to cut through as well. >_< So much... Red tape... *dies*

    *angels sing and sprout is resurrected*
    I'm still optimistic about it though. It just means that it's gonna be more of a challenge now. I've never met a challenge I couldn't accept or overcome. I'll make something of myself and my artwork. I'm hoping to hear from a girl I spoke to about a week or so ago. She asked me if I do logos. I said, "That's what I'm in school for, basically." She was interested in my artwork, gave me a card and wanted to know if I'd be interested in selling her the rights to a logo. Mmm... business money... *drools*

    If I can make her logo and it gets approved, that'll boost me toward my ultimate goal. *fist pump* I'm gonna start the revision of my comic book/manga soon, and I'm going to see if I can get funding from Kick Starter. That would be of great help. All this talk of goals and art make me want to paint. If my campus is open/unlocked today (I'm on spring break, WOOO), I'm picking up my paints and buying a new canvas, then I'm painting the crap out of it! ^_^

    Jus' hang in there bro, I'm sure that you'll be fine. It's always tougher in the begining, but with perserverence you'll make it in no time. I wish ya the best of luck and hope you make it. Good luck man.

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    Thanks! I really appreciate your words of encouragement. ^_^

    Here's to hoping things will pick up. Oh! My mom teaches at a school that just so happens to be having a silent auction soon. They're looking for donations from different businesses to auction off. I'm gonna donate a painting/drawing in hopes of publicizing. Yaay!

    I think I may have to change the business name though. Right now, it's Nuclear Playground Art & Design. My mom and several others think that it's too bold. My mom especially thinks that I'd piss off a bunch of Japanese people, because of the nuclear reactor deal over there. But, I've been using the name for years.
