ABOUT THIS SITE
Read it, it’s actually pretty informative.
This site will be, hopefully, and constantly evolving creature. Like us, too, hopefully. For now the site will have just my artwork and photography on it. I would like to gather other artists who would like to get exposure that might want to come along for the ride. So many of us artists got way back into (in my case) or stepped up the game on their art during the last year and I’d like to see it and share it. I will have things for sale. And I can provide resources for fulfillment and process payments and handle all the logistics of it and send you your profit after the sales are complete. Or I can simply market your work along with mine and whoever else wants to group together. I am completely fascinated with Surrealism, I think most people who know me at all know I’ve been a Dali freak since I was in like 3rd grade. I also gravitate towards Pop-Art, Pop-Surrealism, Trash polka, Steampunk, Decopunk, Dieselpunk so that’s what my orbit will look like, but that doesn’t mean your art needs to.
I’ll be testing all kinds of marketing avenues and logging everything since I’ll be starting from complete scratch really. I have no clue who my target audience even is yet. I figured maybe I’m not the only one who hasn’t done anything much to sell their art and all this seems kind of daunting. I’ll share what I learn along the way. Fortunately I have been doing marketing and websites and social media for decades, so at least I know the platforms. Finding the target audience and dialing that in is just a trial and error thing.
Also, if there are any art collectors that stumble upon this site. I happen to be very good friends with one of the largest Salvador Dali collectors in the world, and he also happens to have lots of great art if someone is looking to invest in some art by the masters. Dali, Warhol, Miro, Picasso, Chagall Matisse, Neiman, Rockwell, Lichtenstein, Nikita, Purvis Young, etc. The list goes on. If you are an art collector and are looking for a specific piece or just looking to see what’s available, I can make the connection to people you can trust. I also might sell a few of mine. I’m ready to let the Purvis stuff go, I may part with a Dali, I’m not sure yet.
Most of the work on this site CAN be sold on almost anything. I plan to focus on limited edition prints on canvas, aluminum, and acrylic board. But there are lots of options available and a custom item or print that isn’t currently offered is not out of the realm of possibility. There are some pieces I have that just seem to make better note/greeting cards than a print necessarily, but that doesn’t mean we CAN’T do it, if that’s what tickles ya. Originals will probably be on sale periodically, but not very often. And commissioned work is also on the table. If you are currently a commissioning client, there will be a link to the client portal where you can view and share notes and feedback, or upload files if that’s what I need from you. email me in the meantime if you don’t yet see a client login link. (I’ll link these actual words as well once it’s ready)
I’d like to connect with some local artists who share the attraction to similar styles of art. Watch for my Facebook group and join on in the fun! You can be from anywhere, obviously, because we can’t really have get-togethers anyway right now, but I look forward to the future when a handful of us can meet up in person and talk art and technology.
In the meantime, you can throw your email address in that newsletter sign up and I’ll be using that to make announcements until the FB Group gains momentum. I’m looking forward to talking to you all and seeing your work, and always love a good critique of mine.
