I just finished a huge cat stripe painting and I have no idea how I will seal the thing. It’s 20″ x 30″ and light blue. I have a huge table that I can lay it out on and drop cloth to protect the floor but nothing big enough to cover the painting so that I can keep the cat hairs off of it. Stupid cats. I might need to buy a bigger can of sealant too and some large brushes to really cover this thing quickly so that I don’t have brush strokes showing up on it.
Might need to go talk to an art store person who knows what to do just to be sure I don’t mess up my image.
I’m not even thinking about how the hell I will ever scan something THAT big. Maybe I’ll take a photo of it. =/
Staple! was pretty cool. Me and Shawnna didn’t get much sleep before the con and we were sort of late to set up but it was a nice relaxing convention. Sells weren’t great but I think it helped me figure out how much to charge for my tiny paintings. I sold mostly the ones with bunnies on them, which I thought was weird until mom reminded me that Easter was coming up.
I’ll put up a chunk of the remaining paintings on Etsy. I’ve been wanting to try that site out for awhile now. I’ll put them also up as small prints because I think they are adorable.
I’m trying to be better about scheduling my work. I always feel so listless since I don’t have a job that I get up and leave the house for, so I end up keeping terrible work hours. So, I’m trying to make myself follow these guys awesome schedule. I work really well to it, I just tend to fall off the horse if I don’t watch myself like a hawk.
Tomorrow I’m going to be working on getting some of my old Woot designs cleaned up and submitted to other sites. Then I plan to make a bunch of these random shirt ideas that I’ve been thinking about but have been too distracted to get to. Lots of puns and cats!
I just finish another Lolmart cat shirt which hopefully will go up soon. Maybe this week or next week. I’ll keep you guys updated. It has an adorable kitten on it. =D
Oh, also I made a shirt for Shirt Woot’s “Luck” Derby. It’s a funny take on the idea of Cloverfield. This was suggested and influenced by an image of Bassanimation’s version of the Cloverfield monster. Look how cute: http://bassanimation.deviantart.com/art/Cloverfield-84878831
