Are you a fan of my artwork? If you want to see -NEW-
artwork from me, buy something from me. Understanding, I don't paint just to sell
stuff (I'd rather just paint and leave the money out of it), however,
that's not possible. Painting, developing my style, pushing the quality
of my artwork, the scope, ideas, etc., all of that takes time, time which I
basically have to BUY. So, if you truly want to see more work, buy
something from me. If you're watching me to see my style evolve, it will
happen faster and greater if you buy something from me. If you want
higher quality products of my work, buy what I've got now and invest in
the future for better products. This is the reality of things, you can
either help things grow or watch them stand still. And for those of you
who already do purchase my shirts, stickers, prints, etc., thank you
very much! It means more to me than you know. :)

Finally checking back after such a long hiatus. Hell if I know how long I've been subscribed to your work on here, but I am loving your progress! I really need to get back into digital art, the cost of real supplies is kicking my ass. Good work friend!

Oh I always have been making art, but as for sharing it on DA it's been a long time. All the nostalgia from seeing my old pieces is making me tear up. Maybe I'll get to selling things here so I can make more hands on art, and hopefully get my computer fixed.

Diggin' it, bra.

Have you submitted any designs to Threadless? Or partake in their occasional competitions? They pay pretty well from what I've seen in the past, could be wrong though.

Thanks, man.

Threadless is a disease.

Threadless uses a system designed to keep artwork cheap as possible, all while securing only the most popular designs through member voting, insuring their sell-ability (and minimizing risk across the board). Companies like Threadless are taking advantage of designers and the competition has made it very difficult for anyone to sell their own work or products. More artists join these sites every year and every year we all get paid a little less (including in-house designers). This isn't very good for the consumer, either. There is far less variety for people to choose from when only the highest voted designs get printed. Just because a design is popular (a lot of votes) doesn't mean that everyone or anyone would want to buy it, it just means enough people will buy it to make it a profitable design for the company. What's more, these companies are all too aware of what they're doing and it makes me sick to my stomach to even think about. The commercial art world is currently ruled by schemers and corporate douchebags, and if it doesn't change soon, you'll see a lot more homeless artists walking about.

Hmm, definitely agree with you there. I just foolishly assumed that Threadless isn't one of 'bad guys'.

They're "bad guys" in the eyes of those who they negatively affect, which should include anyone making t-shirt designs, in-house or freelance. From a business perspective, Threadless is the reigning champion of their business model. They continue selling the idea of an "artist community" and artists continue to eat it up. The reality is, all the artists joining the "community" become the Threadless' consumer base. Artists join these sites to make money but instead, they lose money and their time. It's similar to the lottery (which is accurately called the "dummy tax"), artists pay for their "ticket" by promoting their design, which is free promotion for the website. Those who promote their design the most and bring in the most new members, will likely win. What they win is a small percentage of the profits and nothing more. The winning artists get no payment for all the promotion they did or all the customers they brought in.... And they should because that's a lot of work, work that other industries have to pay a shit-load of money for. What's really sad is some designers are so desperate for money, they join Threadless -knowing- it's a ripoff. How are things supposed to change if artists keep feeding this disease? Until we stop supporting these sites, they'll keep using us. As you likely know, Threadless is just one of many and it's not apparel now, it's all sorts of products.

Unfortunately, to stop these juggernauts, I think would entail stopping the beast that is rampant consumerism, which I cannot not fathom happening.

All you have to do is not participate and tell others not to participate. It's not going to stop it but at the very least, you're not helping them.
