Two auctions are up right now. Lana Lang, Insect Queen ends tonight and Medusa still has a couple of days to go. You can see them here.
This morning I got a email from someone in France, who asked if they could bid on Medusa. I said "yes" of course. I still get a kick out of my original artwork going out around the world. Thanks to the internet, my work has the potential to reach anywhere there is a connection. When I started working as a commercial artist, there wasn't an internet as it exists today. To promote your work you would have to mail out samples, postcards, tearsheets, and/or buy an expensive page in a art book that went out to art directors. In there you would be one page of a few hundred at best. And you might be restricted to North America.
Fast forward a few short years and my portfolio is viewable by anyone with an internet connection. I use my iPhone to show client my work either from the web or in a gallery I have on it. We get new technology every day and I think we get use to it just as quickly. But stepping back every so often, I am amazed at what we have now, compared to 5, 10, or 15 years ago. My first mobile phone was in the early 90s. It was hardwired in my truck. I think I paid about 25.00/month for 10 minutes of airtime per month. And you didn't want to see the cost of going over those minutes. A big clunky handset in the truck with a coil cord to the base. Sounds ridiculous, but it was only 15 years ago. BTW, where is my flying car?
