Black Friday for larger retailers (mainly) and a reiteration of how people can buy from me online but also that the shop and I will be ready to welcome visitors again from Wednesday and I can offer a Happy Sales dance – most people scared off by man in hand painted boiler suit and coloured in pith helmet at this point, but it’s nice to offer at least.
No sales today but I have had an enquiry about a possible late commission request and we are meeting at the shop to see if my work and their needs match without putting me under too much pressure – links to recent headaches / loss of sleep (see personal blog ).
Best thing today was to get started on the pen and ink drawing to base a new commission on linked to client and my own photos of a local scene. I was able to send client a progress photo and then made better progress than I expected with background colour.
A gentle day really, but we all need those sometimes.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-4181-6178d6c2aa6f5' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=4181&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-4181-6178d6c2aa6f5' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-4181-6178d6c2aa6f5' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
