One Hundred Days of Happy - Day 3  
Nothing mopey today! (I am willfully ignoring The Mope, despite several things trying to drag me there.) I found a juried show to submit to, in Arlington, Va. I need to start doing stuff like this and hopefully build up my CV to look a little more professional and a little less fandom.;) $35 per two entries, so not horribly expensive. (It does add up, though.) Wish me luck!

Wishing you a big massive bunch of luck (not that you'll need it, you're wickedly talented)!!! And well done you for branching into something new.

Good luck! What sorts of things (thing?) do you submit?
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: Badass Samquickreaver on July 22nd, 2016 01:35 am (UTC)
Welp, depends on the scope of the show! The first I'm hoping to enter is simply themed "figurative", and another I'm hoping to get picked to participate in has a theme of "tiny homes". The latter can be digital art (in fact, it might be mostly digital submissions), but the sticking point with digital media is that you never have an original. You might be able to personalize or customize prints, but ultimately, there is no original, and that curtails your earning capabilities. Originals are sold for more than prints, obviously, but only sold ONCE, again, obviously. Digital art is so handy...it's easy to ship and can't get damaged! (Unless you eff up your file.) But there's something precious and tangible about analog art. Oh, decisions, decisions. (This is why I struggle!)

Interesting! Yes, it *is* a quandary. Digital art is amazing, but it's not quite the *same*..... I don't know that I would spend the same amount of money on a digital painting as I would on a 'real' painting.... And there is, like books, the visceral feel of it, of being able to see brush or pen or pencil strokes, the texture of paper or canvas....

Good luck!

Well, that's a very positive post, good luck with the show, I hope it generates interest in your work and, of course, sales!
