Since 2008 I have been selling my artwork on the internet. And by selling I mean, “SCREAMING INTO THE ABYSS” trying to gain attention of the art world, while failing miserably. I have never broken even. I have never achieved greatness. I still have a day job, and I spend all of my extra money on items for my business.
I treat my art career as a true business. I hire an accountant. I have processes and plans, I have weekly strategy meetings with other like-minded artists. But I am still floundering around trying to make it work. In this series I am going to explore some of the things that I have learned over these past few years. I will share some of my monumental failures and I will offer up ideas on how I have succeeded. I will show you what I’ve done, and I will try to help where I can. Maybe you can help me back?
I won’t say that I am great at this, but I am truly dedicated to succeeding. I will quit my day job, I will have a thriving art career, and I will do it in a way that doesn’t make me feel like a sell out or a bad person, or like I am taking advantage of those of you kind enough to tune into my screaming into the abyss.
Thanks for showing up, thanks for reading, and most of all, thank you for supporting my journey.
