ART ON THE CHEAP

Hello Followers and fellow Bubblers.

Here’s a tip I use fairly often for getting art supplies on the cheap.
Being a full time artist means you have a huge need to makes sales and conserve funds as much as one can when buying art supplies.

This will mostly for painters and sketch artist and people that like to bargain hunt.

I frequently find the following items ; canvases, paint sets, brushes, drawing sets, pencil sets and more for way cheaper than at art an art supply store.

Places to look are TJ Max, Ross, Dollar Stores, Daiso (Japanese dollar store) or similar discount stores.

Ok, granted these are not going to be “top brand name” products, but I got a package of 5 12 × 12 canvases for $ 6.00. That’s cheap.

Creating

I spend as much time as I can in my tiny San Francisco storage room studio creating artworks of all kinds for a wide range of (generally odd) subjects. But sometimes a complicated life gets in the way and like any full time artist creating vs selling can be a problem and money always becomes an issue.…

To combat that problem as much as possible I put that artwork here on RedBubble in hopes of reaching and selling to a broader market so I can continue to buy art supplies I need and keep my little studio going.

I not only make the assorted crazy drawing you see here, but I also make jewelry, paint, sculpt a little and build model trains as well as attempt to collect enough tools to try out many other art forms that interest me.

Needless to say over a short time “space” in my 4.5 × 7 studio
