I applied and got accepted at Trunkt, an online art/portfolio site! Rumor has it that's it's pretty hard to get in there so I was soooo happy that my application was accepted. I have a basic portfolio which only allows 3 pieces of art :(. I want to upgrade but money just isn't going to allow it right now. I'm sure we've all been there! I felt super guilty getting pizza with everybody at work today for lunch so a $50 upgrade for a bigger portfolio is out of the question at the moment. The bad thing is that it's going from $50 to $99 on April 5. So if I'm going to get it, I should do it before then. There's a link to my Etsy store on there though, so buyers can at least see my other stuff if they want to click a little more :).
I got chosen for Treasury on Etsy and I feel very honored by that, it's the 2nd one I've been chosen for: http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list_west.php?room_id=5247
I also got asked to be the guest artist on http://www.thepeachtreebrooklyn.com/
I think it will involve an interview via email. I'll be Peachtree's guest artist for the entire week. What a good idea to feature things like that on your blog! Hmmm, it would make mine more interesting too wouldn't it? Something to think about.
I've been doing A LOT of thinking about local venues to sell my art. I've been doing some online research and I'm coming up with a lot of ideas. I didn't know Knoxville had such an active art community. There are a couple of galleries with open calls for artists and even an art marketplace. I'm going to have to go check it all out. What would be awesome would be to find a little funky boutique that would sell my prints. I would LOVE that. It might even bring in enough money that I could quit my 'getting up at 3am job' and focus totally on art and creativity. That would be my ideal life. Taking pictures and making them fun and awesome on the computer and selling them. *sigh*. I AM going to make it happen :).
