Nothing to do with art

While I was driving across the beautiful Pasadena suicide bridge, a lady in a big-ass BMW SUV, smoking a cigarette and flicking her ashes out the window, threw a crumpled up McDonald's bag out her window. She was wearing a baseball cap with pigtails. What a JERK! I hate people who litter. If she wasn't speeding so fast I would have pulled up beside her and yelled at her. DANG!

Also I am very happy that there are some people reading my blog. That is very cool. Thank you!!!

Commerical Art

I have been feeling bad and discouraged lately because I have been listening to people pretty much saying that it is bad to be a commercial artist, that it is better to be a fine artist. Since I do alot of commercial art, which I define as getting hired to do art for some specific reason, it has basically made me feel crappy. I paint pictures for myself and for other people and it has always made me pretty glad, but now I am doubting myself. Maybe the fact that it is rainy and cold and I am tired has made me gloomy. I am sure I'll get over it.

Is it different to make money from art you sell to a client or to make money from art you sell in a gallery? Do people take you less seriously if you have been an illustrator? Why? Should I care? I am mad that this is an issue in my head right now because I really just like to make art. I like selling it in galleries and I like getting hired to do jobs. I like getting paid to do it and for it. It doesn't feel any different. Why are people ashamed of it? Am I screwed?

Sometimes I think it is better for me to sell my art myself so it can stay reasonbly priced and get into the hands of regular people who don't normally buy original art. Once you get in the bigger fancy galleries the people who can afford your art gets smaller. Why should rich people be the only ones to own art? But if some big gallery wanted to sell my work for lots of money I would probably do it.

I don't like elitism.

Writers & Me

Last night I hung out with a bunch of writers. It is nice to spend time with people who don't paint or draw for a living. Sometimes I forget that other people exist out there. Not knocking artists, but writers are interesting. That is something I wish I was good at. See look at that sentence. I might as well have written "Gee whiz I dang sure would like to write stuff n' junk." I can't write worth a poo. Oh well. I can do drawings.

I can't wait to eat stuffing.

Once more thing. I was just thinking about all the blogs and websites in the world and how everyone is crying out for attention including me. It is overwhelming. It is embarrassing always writing about myself and trying to get people to buy my art, or look at my art. I wish I was different and didn't care, but I really do want people to be interested in my junk.

So I just want to write this to get it off my chest. I might as well embrace it. Me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me and what not, me me me me me me me me me me and me. Me me me me me, heck yeah, me me me me me me me me me. Me me me me me me me me fantastic me me me. Ok me me me me. And last but not least, me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me. Thank me.
Sincerely Mine,

Studio Party

If you live in Los Angeles please stop by our studio open house type party.

spam subject lines of today

Would you click on these spam emails? The subject lines in spam are interesting. They crack me up. Also have you ever accidently clicked on one and there is this strange almost literary writing? Why? It almost sounds like someone writing well, but then the words get all messed up and confusing. Weird. Here are some from today.

New, un-known and exciting high revenue occupation

Oh well I guess I have nothing better to write. Although a new unknown exciting high-revenue occupation sounds GOOD! I might click on that one.

Here is a fact. I love Campbell's Hearty Chunky Steak Fajita Soup. If you are on weight watchers the whole can is just 4 points. It be good and fills you up. Although it is weird eating hot soup when it is 90 degrees outside right now. Our studio is COLD! My feet are cold.

I don't think any one is reading my blog but if someone does please check out my new website:

It is a website where I post a new painting or drawing every day. They are all for sale for under $300 bucks. I am trying to make myself more disciplined because I tend to be lazy on occasion.

Catch ya later!
