As a personal motto I adopted the Danish phrase 'det bedste er ikke for godt'. Mr. Jensen (luca0483) has provided a translation in the comments section. At this point I should be saying 'some of you may have noticed the redone pieces that I've uploaded in an attempt to bring my gallery here up to a professional level', but I'm writing right now to say 'some of you may have noticed the one redone piece I've uploaded in something like three weeks and I meant to have one uploaded tonight except I didn't realize how awful it was until I got all the way through the flats phase of production'. In reviewing my body of work uploaded here I've come to the conclusion that most of my work was uploaded speedily after half-assing (especially the drawthread work), which is bad. But, there are some decent concepts embedded in there that could make for some really great pieces if the proper pre-production were applied. So while I hold my day job assisting the renovation of houses, so shall I 'renovate' my gallery, uploading brand new, expanded versions of old pieces with as few deletions as possible. Who knows, maybe I'll actually develop a style while I'm at it. I've taken on a pair of special projects though, so the comm's going to go dark again for a while until they're done.
I've also recently set up a PayPal account, so while I work through these I'm going to gauge my expenditures (temporally and otherwise) to see what realistic rates might be sufficient to start doing commissioned works. Honestly can't see that price-to-product-to-profit ratio being very good though at this point.
Thinking of moving to Toronto with some friends of mine, but I can't decide. Too many leveled pros and cons on both sides. Speaking of Toronto, I missed the TCAF. Again. Should still be able to get to Niagara Falls Comic Con to waffle aboot for a day while I should be behind a table selling things. But enough talk, it seems I've gone all mopey again. You wouldn't believe what a joy it is to have me around in person.
