The above illustration is the way I feel sometimes when I’m looking for venues to show and sell my work. Anybody want to buy a skull?
Yesterday I had a very rushed conversation with a publisher/agent. This person suggested I send them a few examples of my work and the books. Previously I explained what the work is about. After a few hours I get this email saying “Oh this is fiction.” I replied, “yes and are you interested?” If not then good luck.
So far I have had 2 publishers interested but I don’t think they are the right ones. The second can’t open my attachments so that’s saying something.
On a lighter note I went to see the film Carol yesterday. It was beautifully told, the acting superb and the cinematography was wonderful. I loved the film.
And a word about graphic design. Seems as though it has created quite a history. I remember when illustration and graphic design was considered commercial art. The professions were not taken as seriously as Fine Art, but it allowed women to earn a living.
Stay tuned. Life isn’t over…
