It was a great show! I was floored to find out that I sold two pieces. The Rainy Day Pals...


And the Pals on a Wire modern art block. The one on the left.


I knew eariler on that the painting sold, but not the block. We went to pick up our remaining pieces, and the block was missing. I went to ask the lady in charge, and the patron that had JUST bought it was about to leave with it. I was introduced to her as "The artist" and the customer raved, shook my hand and thanked me for my talent. What an incredible feeling!

That feeling was made all the more surreal when both she and I ended up side by side in the condiments ailse 15 minutes later, looking for ketchup. She said "You look familiar."
I said that she'd just bought my art block at the gallery.
Then, for some reason, she seemed awkward talking to me. So I just said "Thanks for buying the block. I hope you enjoy it." Or some such, with a genuine smile and left her alone.

Isn't it wierd how people can percieve you differently depending on the context? She and I were both wearing the same clothes we had on at the gallery, no quick-switches in the car ride to the store. I hadn't pulled my hair back or gotten a new tattoo or anything, LOL! But, just minutes later, she didn't recogninze me, and then didn't know how to talk to me in a different setting.

Wierd!

But, yeah! Happy!! I sold art! At a real gallery!

Congratulations! You're very talented so I'm not surprised you sold your pieces. It's a great feeling to know that someone else likes your work well enough to buy it and put it in their home.

My comic biker dude putting on some jeans after falling to earth naked, because... why not? You don't really see anything but some cheeck, but I'll spoiler'd it anyway.
He'll have the landscape behind him in the panel. I do all the figures seperately and then insert them.
Quick note: the silvery lines on and around him are the pencil marks from the original sketch. I draw stuff, scan it into photoshop and do the colors, shading and "ink" there. I hid the layer that the pencil marks are on while I was working on him. But when I turned the pencil layer back on to see how it all adds up, these lines showed up like this. I thought it was cool because pencil looks dark on white paper, but against a much darker background, they look almost silver. I didn't plan to use them in the final figure, but when I saw it like this, I had to. It gives him an added dimension.
I love happy accidents!
