Life of Art SitRep #57 Red and Blue

Every week, I work towards creating a life of art for myself. This is the zigzag filled journey.

Play along in the comments with your own pursuits if you'd like. (That's where I'll cheer you on.)
This week, I

  • Prepared Red Linen Fabric Texture and Flowing Blue Silk Fabric Abstract photographs, wrote descriptions for them, and created lines of customizable products:

  • Tweeted, FB'd, zblogged Red Linen Fabric Texture folder link.

  • Tweeted some sales.

  • Sent thanks DM to 3 new twitter followers.

  • Watched "Fixing Layer Style Scaling Problems" Photoshop tutorial. Good one! Available in iTunes podcasts.

  • Listened to GoingPro podcast #29. They recommend 10x what you normally charge to give someone digital negatives. If you're getting that, don't sweat giving up the negatives. In some markets 10x will be too much, in some too little. It needs to cover what it took you to make the picture: your education, your gear, your computer and software, etc. Have to charge enough to cover your cost. Be open minded about giving up your files. Different market place now than ten years ago. Good tips!

  • Listened to Going Pro Podcast Episode 30. All about backing up your business, not just gear and files but people who can fill in, all the ways to cover your responsibilities if you can't.

  • *******
    How are your pursuits going?
