A Decent Signing

It was a decent signing yesterday, as far as signings go. I managed to sell a print, which means I broke even as far as gas money ;) But the really cool thing was meeting fellow Spectrum 14 artists. I even got my own free copy signed by the 10 or so artists who were there. Kinda felt weird, since it seemed like I was the only one doing it, but oh well.

Artists are strange lot to begin with. We all kinda keep to ourselves, probably because we're so used to working in a vacuum so to speak. I mean everyone was cordial to each other, but there's an inheirent shyness mixed with looking down upon each other, even though we don't mean to. We try to hoard our secrets, and only give them up when something else is given to us. Catch-22, I know. We all (myself included) seem to look down upon other people's artwork, but also try to salvage the encounter by observing what another artist has done and in our minds try to apply a technique/color scheme/artistic element to something we might be working on. It's hard to explain. If there are any other artists reading this, please let me know if it's just me that notices this. Like I said, Artists are a strange lot to begin with...

It was a sparse crowd, but there were a lot of presales and mail order books sold through Dark Delicacies so it was fun nonetheless, signing a stack of books that were going to be mailed out. I get anxious and self-conscious anyway, when someone is above me waiting for their book to be signed. Wish I had something to submit for Spectrum 15, but I've been so busy with other things that I haven't really thrown anything together yet.

I will push something for charity. So, I'm donating ALL of MY profit from this print sale for this creation will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
