Circus Remix!

This is a remix of an artwork I did recently with a circus feel.
I havn't posted the original (which is going to be at the Hive Gallery's circus circus show!) But I wanted to share this digital remix I did.

Words included:

"Stage III
the inhibition
experiment

With great visual disturbance
and complex asymmetrical dreams"

All of it is original artwork layered digitally, creating a look I love. (I'm actually trying to create a work inspired by the digital layering effect I get from doing things like this)

Available as an 11 x 17 print

It looks like a lot of fun! When you say you made a print, do you mean yourself, or did you use a company for it?

I had prints made - 11" x 17" color prints at a local print shop.
And I sell them for $15 + shipping. but people order through me rather than a company. some of them I sell on my etsy site, some I sell when I travel to conventions.

*grin* thanks! Too bad I can't get my real paintings to look like this! But I'm trying similar things in paint.
Yay HIVE.
I really want to visit the Hive sometime - it always looks like it would be a blast!

Very cool - I love your colors as always, but this has a frenetic, anxious mood that's really powerful :thumbsup:

This is so neat...it reminds me of that movie "The Mirrormask". Ever seen it?

Thanks, and yes. I LOVE Mirrormask. I love Dave McKean's work in just about any form. :)

The finishe version of this looks amazing. You could make a graphic novel like this.

Maybe I can remix someone else's graphic novel. (I've tried graphic novels, and I always fall off the wagon... so far... someday I'll do one)

You are very talented, and there is no reason (other than preference or timing) that you couldn't. Maybe you resist convention in every form. XD. Maybe you will get your chance. [link]

Yeah, I do tend to resist convention - it will either be my downfall, my salvation, or both. :doh: :D

It depends on how you view life. It takes courage to do your own thing.
I'm curious, do you sell most of your stuff at exhibitions, or online? I know nothing about the business of fine arts.

Well, about doing one's own thing, I was just listening to a Clive Barker interview about some of his very very early film work.
(rarely seen 'Salome' and 'The Forbidden')
They didn't even consider whether or not there was an audience out there. They just did it because they were interested in it.
:heart:

Sales:
I attend conventions where I do most of my selling. Mainly horror conventions. I also try to sell online through my site and Etsy. I did galleries for a while but the gallery scene here doesn't quite hit my audience yet. Great feedback, but too intense for midwest living-rooms I guess!

I've seen him interviewed recently on youtube. He is an interesting guy. The most original art is the type that someone makes with out regard to whether it will sell or impress anyone. Unfortunately, even artists have to eat. XD.
Some people don't get anything that is different. Most people are told what to like, told what to think, and given prearranged cues on how to react to things. Marketing agencies have mastered the art. I guess as social animals we must adapt to and live by the edicate of our group. The problem is when people don't seem to be aware that they are incapable of having original thoughts if all they can do is repeat back jingoistic phrases, or pass their shallow judgements onto what they see. I guess it is a game we must all play, and the compromise that accompanies living in society.
Your stuff is great, probably more so because it is outside of the mainstream. I think that you might have mentioned that your sculpture was usually the thing that attracted attention to your booth. I really like your nature-like pieces, and I'm sure that those could have a wider audience. Your recent art would be great for some graphic novel or book. I wish you continued success.

awesome, thanks!

Yes, the appeal to masses vs. my own direction is something I often struggle with - but despite having to scrape and struggle at times, I'm much happier NOT making a career out of pleasing other people. I thought I wanted to be an illustrator, but even the more interesting projects I picked up made me feel caged because of my own paranoia to please, and thus the art was never as good as it could've been. HOWEVER, that doesn't mean I don't still do projects for people. And I still occasionally make a few things that might appeal. I have a hard time doing fan art. Not that I don't appreciate it. I try to squeeze in a few pieces when I can because... like you said it... I gotta eat. ;) my best selling prints tend to either fan characters, or creatures inspired by well known sources - it makes sense - these are things a majority of people identify with - I myself am not immune - I convinced an artist to sell me his doodle of Gizmo at a previous event. *grin* ...still trying to balance that out. But, always aiming for the goal of 'people-buying-things-I-already-make-because-they-like-it'
Again, thanks! </ramble>
