Is it just me, or is it a little ART in here?
Art has once again cycled back towards the top of my interest/activity list and in this case, that means trees! Yay! Trees are great!
My friends like my trees!
Nobody buys them.
Yes, I’ve heard all the things about how one should do what one loves and all that and so maybe it’s just fine that I do these trees and people like them on FaceBook but they’re not worth my time to vectorize.
That kind of positivism is for people without childcare costs.
Which means taking a more critical look at What Sells As Art, and there is really glaringly one thing that my stark trees lack … a place to stand. They just sort of float there, black in the emptiness of white. To be sure, they have a penstroke of grass, but that’s not much at all.
So, now what?
Now I guess I need to figure out how to put trees in context, I mean landscapes.
The sticky wicket is how to do it without making it impossible to clean up and make big enough to print on things, but maybe I can figure that out later. I mean, I focus on Print on Demand (which pushes for many-pixels) because taxes scare the crap out of me but eventually originals are a thing, right?
