So I just got a new hard drive and I thought I transferred photoshop across from my old computer, except that I didn’t, and now I’ve gotten rid of my old hard drive, and I can’t do any creative work till I can get photoshop anew, which will most likely be for another week, and AHHH IT’S ALL TOO HARD!!!
I entered a competition that the awesome schytsoframe had to win one of his awesome t-shirts, and he sent me a message today to tell me I won! This is super exciting not just because winning is fun and it’s a cool t-shirt anyway, but until I get a full-time job landed I have soooo little money that all I can afford to do is LOOK at the excellent stuff on redbubble….it’s only last week that I even managed to be able to buy one of my own shirts for the first time! Stoopid poverty line… >:oP…
Anyway, it’s exciting.
What else is exciting is that I sold another couple of t-shirts today including one design that I wasn’t quite sure about….it’s nice to have the affirmation sometimes. :)
I also uploaded a new one tonight called Miss Universe 2009. One of my friends on twitter wrote something
I spent a week in Canberra recently with very limited internet access, so I have lots of ideas for t-shirts and prints, but haven’t really had much opportunity for uploading anything……
I did upload a written piece I did the other night called The Suicide Princess, which was inspired by a line from a Busdriver song. I don’t know how to do the linky thing, but it’s in my writing folio anyway if y’all wanna check it out. :)
I have also been working on a t-shirt for Invasion of the Pod People, which is the podcast that I work on with my friend beatboy, and have been getting more work done on the Cinderella inked canvas that I mentioned in my last post. I’m pretty happy with how Cinderella is coming along actually!
I have had an idea for a print I want to do of the Virgin Mary as a Suicide G
Some of the first pieces I started selling to people were twisted takes on fairy tales….I have done a few Coal Black pieces (Snow White as a character from a blaxploitation film), a Hansel & Gretel piece; the person who purchased the Hansel & Gretel piece has asked me to do a Cinderella one as well, and while the idea has been quite firmly in my head (helped muchly by her having quite a solid idea what she wants), it has taken me a month or so to actually put pencil to paper for anything more than brainstorming sketches.…
I’m happy tonight to have gotten a start on the piece finally, and to have hurdled that creative block. I had gotten so into doing t-shirt designs once I found redbubble that I was a bit worried it was going to be difficult doing canvas work again. Fortunately that does
I only just found out five minutes ago how to reply to someone’s comment on my piece instead of writing another comment underneath it….sorry to anyone who has been thinking OMG THAT GUY IS SO RUDE….lol :)
I have found this place to be really welcoming and supportive….give all y’all selves a pat on the back redbubblers! :D
I made my first sale already, my angel fish tee! I’ve only been here 5 minutes….yay! I love redbubble!
I’m really looking forward to churning out heaps of stuff here, even if it doesn’t sell; I am just loving that I am finally getting back into art in a big way after spending most of my adult life trying to live in the “real world” and hating every minute of it.
So, up until I discovered redbubble, I had stored most of my writing for the past bunch of years on the creative writing forum of another site; I figured it wouldn’t hurt to have backups as I don’t actually have hard copies of most of my writing, so I have started the process of copying everything which is worth saving to redbubble as well.…
In the process of doing that, I have been surprised at the emotions it brings up….for a lot of my life, I have been very miserable and self-destructive, and looking back on some of those pieces now I feel sorry for that kid because he seems so far away from who I am today.
I don’t regret anything I have done or have experienced because it has made me a stronger person, and I’m glad that I have come such a long way, but it’s still sad to see that person
