Last night was the Saturday of the Wynwood Arts District Art Walk down in Miami.
I’m still a bit amused by the fact that the old Fashion District is now the Arts District (we even walked past a vacant lot surrounded by cyclone fencing that held a tag-covered old sign for the Fashion District). I’m also amused by all the trendy hipsters swarming an area that a few years ago was more likely to sport car fires than galleries. It’s all very “Miami.”
I edited these about a week ago. I’ve been a bit unmotivated to post them as card possibilities on Etsy simply because with the economy still a bit sluggish, January a bit debt-riddled, and people in general a bit unwilling to send actual cards rather than text messages, I wasn’t sure I wanted to…
On the other hand, the cards still sell better the photographic prints. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it’s price point and perhaps it’s market saturation. Perhaps only my friends and family want my “art” on their walls. Perhaps I need to make business decisions with math instead of silly “feelings.”
If you have any opinions, please feel free to comment.
Lately I’ve been compelled to draw on ceramic tiles. They make such good little canvases. Now, the low-fire markers I’ve been using claim to be permanent once “baked” but low-fire glazes of any kind are still far more fragile and prone to chipping than high-fire.
That said, have a peek into my ceramic dreamscapes:
