I can't believe we're more than half-way into the month of May, and it feels like April just ended. Makes you want to call your local quantum physics professional and collaborate on a method of expanding time so that it runs more slowly like it used to when you were younger. Then again, that might cause some irreversible side-effects within the space-time continuum which may destroy the universe as we know it. That, and I don't know anyone who's an expert in quantum physics. Anyway, on to the journal:
I've put up more artwork on my page despite still having no scanner, and out of what I've posted so far, my work for Brainscratch-fans
seems to be getting a lot of notice. With nine comments so far and too many favorites to count, I'd say I should make BSC: The Animated Series a reality. Or maybe I should just settle for being commissioned for making thumbnail art for their latest YouTube video.
Yes, I feel I am confident in taking in commissions. I've already got an author who has asked me to provide, as a paid service, illustrations for a book she's writing, and a vote of confidence from an artist that I've met at MoCCA Fest last month when I had inquired about commissions. You may remember that in a previous inquiry, here on this very site, I was advised to improve on my skills some more before I start charging for art. I'm not quite sure that would make a difference either since we each have a unique style that differs from artist to artist, which is basically what art is all about. Besides, I've already got some compliments from the mini-fan-comic that I've given to friends of my actor friend and to the merchants at MoCCA Fest.
And speaking of my actor friend who hosts this public access cable show in Manhattan
, of which I've been very happy to participate in, I was actually inspired to take the production classes that they offer at their media center so I can have my own cartooning show, just like Christopher-Hart
, because let's face it, if there's one thing television needs that's E/I-friendly, it's a show that inspires future artists to fulfill their talents and express themselves in the art of cartooning. Also, cartoons are awesome! (Hey, that would make a great title for this show!)
I think I've covered everything relevant that I needed to cover for this month. Now I turn it over to you with a new thing I'd like to call The Monthly Question. First Monthly Question for May: What sort of art would you like to see, and would you be willing to commission it? I can start my prices at 400 points, and then negotiate from there.
