    Should I take a job

    It is risky. If it´s becoming a way of life, there is no way to quit even after hundreds of failures though. As others have mentioned, this remains a "hobby" until the first sales trickle in. Good perspective on collectors....There is a debate around art vs. representational painting, but let´s...

    Should I take a job

    It seems like there are mixed opinions on this, rightfully so. Getting told to take a job constantly already feels complacent to scripted life, however until you get revenue from your business, there is no way to proof against it. Been living like this for 4-5 years now. Maybe it´s time to...

    The "Half Baked" Ideas Thread

    3D surface photography and hologram or VR. Usually when photographing paintings, the image becomes flat and you don´t get a feel of how it looks like in real life. You need to go see it in real life to really see all brushstrokes and how they bulge and how the painter painted it. What if we can...
