No Picture, Just Rant

First, let's get this out of the way: For any of you in the greater Columbus, Ohio area, you can now buy prints of my work at the Ohio Art Market, in Uptown Westerville! If you don't have a geographical proximity to Westerville, Ohio, may I suggest that you visit my Etsy Store?

Self-promoting makes me itch. I'm not used to doing so and am under the distinct impression that I have no cause to do so.

I'm trying to get over that.

In an effort to "get over that" I contacted the lovely folks at the above-mentioned establishment and they agreed to carry prints of my work in their store.... where I could potentially make, like, actual money, spent by actual real people who have no vested interest in me whatsoever.

It's weird and I'm trying to get over that.

It's one thing to hide in my office and draw stuff that I don't have to show to anyone else, but to offer up those drawings for public display, all wrapped up in shiny cello sleeves with a business card in the back that screams "I think you should trade your hard earned money for this picture of a snake!"... that's a different thing, entirely.

It's weird and I'm trying to get over that.

I know I've been tending this blog for awhile now, but I post with the distinct impression that no one reads it, anyway. But physical evidence of my attempted art, in a retail setting, on display for public consumption? It's weird.

...and I'm trying to get over that.

I have no idea what to expect from this new venture. I could sell everything I've given them to display... or I could sell nothing. I just decided that I was tired of being afraid and I needed to test the waters.
