Maze-ing maze 9/184

Maze-ing Maze 9/184

“There is an art, or rather a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.” ~Douglas Adams, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

Maze 9: This maze is recreation of one of the first mazes I created for the children’s book that started this entire style for me.   And on a positive note another purchase from a person who loves my work.  Although I’m not selling enough to live off of I’m increasing my sales so I can feel my freedom coming surely but slowly.

I chose the quote because I’m stuck on the metaphor that flying has come to mean to my life.  I feel like my goal to live and survive from my art is similar to throwing myself off a cliff in the hopes that I will stay afloat and eventually soar.  I have to admit though if I hit the ground I don’t know that I have it in me   to rise again.  Because of the last year and a half of my life being so difficult I really need to succeed at this because I’m putting all that I have into making this work.

I have taken a break from the door to door sales and researched a peddlers permit so I can sell my work on the street downtown or at our arts district.  And now my goal is to figure out how to increase (okay lets be real) gain online sales.  This blog has generated a few sales in 13 months.  Which is not bad but given the 60k + visits I feel that I should generate more.

So with a strong plan in place and many different methods to promote and sell my art I feel strong about my ability to keep flying so to speak and even soar!  However for those that read this I’m open to any ideas that could help me, or connections to people anywhere that buy, sell, run a gallery or what have you in regards to art?

  5. Your work reminds me of some ancient transilvanian fairytales somehow and I grew up with them. So every time I see these drawings it reminds me of childhood!
