Introduction for jartist

I am a self employed artist and member of a co-op art gallery. Yes, I am a starving artist, but after having worked in several industries and suffered from the results of other people's bad decisions, I decided that if I was going to be broke anyway, it would be because of my own decisions. As a change from my regular medium which is clay, I do some bead work and needle felting. I enjoy reading and watching movies that have no purpose other than to provide entertainment. I especially like ones that have monsters and large explosions. If there are both I am completely happy. I don't enjoy cooking, but luckily my partner does. My favorite foods include sushi, dark beer, and chocolate, although not necessarily together.

Hi and welcome. Do you also know how to draw digital illustrations? There's a high demand for this. If you work well and deliver fast, you might not be so broke any more :) If you want I can tell you more. Greetings from a fellow sushi lover.

Hello. Hope you do well with your art. I've been to some of the co-op galleries and have seen some beautiful artwork.
I have a friend who makes extra retirement money from her art but I don't think it is enough to live in the manner she wishes.
Then again, she lives in a very small, one horse town.
Best of luck to you.

Starving artist? Welcome to the club. I have been one nearly all my adult life. I just cannot seem to make it out of my rut as an artist. Nevermind, we must keep being creative no matter the financial outcome.

Nice to see you here. I'll raise my mug to you next time I have a dark beer. And to your partner too!

Obviously you were one and done here at PP. You never returned to give PP a fair chance with more posts of your writings.
