So is the artwork available for purchase? If so, I hope you sell a mint.

He didn't seem to have any mints for sale... just photographs.

That's funny! Except that it's not really all that funny.

You mean you can buy whole mints? That'd be awesome

Of course you can buy whole mints. They're usually right by the cash register. Duh.

Thanks for all the kind thoughts!

I think it went pretty well - people seemed to like the pics, I got invited back there for the next First Friday (May 4th, for those bad with the maths) and best of all, I sold 2 prints! Of course, it was to friends, but still... people thought that what I captured on film (well, pixels) was worth paying for. And that ain't all bad. The next one will be a bit more "official", with some signs on the door and whatnot. Hopefully a few more people show up this time, but since it wasn't really "advertised" and the weather was kinda shitty, I expect more next time. I was certainly nervous, but I think that the pics sometimes speak better than I do.

I got some good general advice from a woman at the bar that night, so I feel pertty confident getting that first one under my belt. Gotta spread out more, maybe try to get a show closer to home. Gotta start somewhere.  I begain to actually start tracking this stuff - costs, mileage, which "number" of print sold, etc... Anyone out there got any advice on that? I figure if I wanna get famous, I wanna do it right, and be professional about it.



Oh, and I'll bring mints next time.

Be careful you don't get ripped off though.  I bought mints by some crappy company called "Life Saver" and they weren't whole mints!  They had a big hole in the middle of every single one!  I felt so cheated.

Dude, don't you know that there are only two places to get mints? Either 1) Olive Garden or 2) Skyline. Everything else will disappoint you.

Congrats Zerk!

BUMP!

I'm doing this again, May 4th at Fat Shannons in Mainstrasse.
Should be some more of my stuff up this time, and I hope to have a few more bodies show up! Come on down for a drink, and take a gander at my photos.

Mints will be grudgingly provided...

Good luck! Make sure you have good mints, not those hard white-and-red peppermint disk thingies.
