I’m not worried about finding a market for my art

Roxy being shy

I’m not at all worried about finding a market for my art. It simply comes down to this. I make art that I like. Contrary to popular opinion, we’re a lot less unique than we think we are. So, if I like it, there are good odds that someone else out there does as well.

Now, I’ve only been doing art since February. Yes, this is my first year as a student. But I’ve been progressing very fast. I’m planning on doing it professionally in four years.

Will I pull it off? Sure, give or take a few years. To me, it doesn’t matter because I’m having tons of fun. Besides, if it wasn’t fun, I wouldn’t be doing it. I’ve always said that life is too short to do something you don’t like.

Andy Warhol quote

I’m not a fan of Andy Warhol. I get it though. By the time he came on the scene, everything’s been done and he was trying to do something completely different.

I hate modernism though with a passion. We’re all entitled to our tastes.

But, this quote is right on.

Don’t think about making art. Just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.

It’s absolutely brilliant. It’s brilliant because it’s right on. Just keep on producing. Some of it will sell. Let them decide what will sell and what won’t.

A new model

Roxy is a babe. She’s a dear, dear friend of mine. Probably too close.

I wrote Princess for the Night for her. We had our share of spats over stupid shit. Yes, I’m not as functional as I’d like to be. I don’t exactly walk on water. But like I’ve always said, I’ll be the most open and honest blogger you ever read.

Most bloggers brag about their accomplishments, making themselves out to be the resident experts at everything. I’ll also share my fuck ups and failures.

Anyways, we’re getting along great again. And she’s a total babe. More importantly, she wants to model for me.

She’s actually slightly jealous of Allie. Allie’s got it together. Plus, Allie’s a blonde. You’ll catch quite a few brunettes who are jealous of blondes.

Why? I have no idea. I’m guessing that they assume men want blondes more. I prefer red-heads, but whatever.

This piece is called “Roxy being shy.”

Roxy being shy

She totally underrates herself. As a person, she’s deeply insecure and has no idea how physically attractive she is. She also fears that there’s not that much depth to her and guys will get bored with her.

Yes, I get it. I had my insecurities when I was her age too. It’s not easy being in your early 20s. The world seems so much more complicated than it really is.

But the thing is, you’ll get it. It will start making sense.

Back to Roxy, I’ve seen her nude a few times and she’s quite easy on the eyes. She’s pretty, but thinks she’s plain. Yeah, one of those girls.

She’s very different than Allie. Allie’s got a lot more self-confidence. Roxy’s always questioning herself.

She smokes too

Both Allie and Roxy smoke. I’m not one of those anti-smoking Nazis that you hear about all over California. Californians want to shove their beliefs down your throat more than any other state. By far.

(We’re going to be the first state that attempts to ban meat. You think I’m not serious?).

If you smoke, great. If you don’t, great. Is smoking bad for you? You decide that. I don’t tell you what to do with your life and I expect you to give me the same courtesy.

“How could you possibly defend smoking?” Ever heard of Jeanne Calment? She smoked. Also, that Japanese guy who lived longer than any other male ever? He smoked up until he was 101. Because he said that smoking is probably bad for you.

Roxy posed for me this morning. She posed full-nude but I’m going to do the smoking one first. I happen to like smoking chicks because they’re friendlier. Sure, non-smokers generally live longer. I’m not going to argue that. Smoking is bad for you. Everyone knows that.

But, smokers are friendlier. I’d much rather deal with someone who’s not a douchebag.

So that’s next on my list. As soon as I hit the “publish” button on this article, I’m going to finish up the inking for “Roxy with a cigarette.” You’ve just seen “Roxy being shy.”

I’ll create a market if it doesn’t exist. I paint beautiful nude women, except in my unique style. That’s my market. My market? People who like beautiful nude women in my unique style. If it doesn’t exist, I’ll create it.
