I will try once more to sell my chair. I've listed it twice on ebay and once on craigslist to no avail. the highest offer I've gotten has been $50 and I might just take that if it's all I can get but the fucker cost me six times that.
I've been commissioned to draw an illustration for a website so am doing that with my newfound photoshop pen tool skill. I don't know how much they are going to give me. it will be worth far more than I'd ever think of charging though. I need to learn illustrator if I'm going to do stuff like this--geekily speaking, vector graphics would be a lot more useful than bitmapped graphics for this kind of thing.
I have to think of some way to get some sort of steady cash flow going. I mean I'll be teaching soon and I guess once I get to that things will be ok. but in the meantime I really wonder if I could sell art on the internet. it'd be something I could do that is just about painless and there aren't many things like that.
I wonder how difficult/expensive it would be to have prints made of a pencil drawing. I wonder who does that sort of thing. it would be nice to be able to sell the same drawing more than once! :)
I mean yeah I have a dissertation to write but it doesn't pay very well.
