Back to the old

 

IMG_3084Well I am back to wordpress, to a webpage in blog form, Shopify was very expensive and didn’t work for me, as I still sold much more art pretty much everywhere else than from the actual website.  It will take me a wee bit to get this one up to date so bear with me and I will make sure the links are all undated and I get some new art up.  I am currently touring Europe now, and will be featuring that on my other blog, Painting in the Shadows of the Paris Bohemians.  For now here is a storm cloud I painted in Palm Desert about a year ago.

Excusive Version of Katinkabelle Book

My Kickstarter has one more week to go and its already over 100% minimum funding.  My backers get an exculsive offer to get an exclusive deluxe version of my book at less than cost! This version will be similar to a graphic novel format with excellent quality printing. A trade paperback version, which is still quite nice, will be eventually be available at galleries and online for around $30.

I am working obsessively on the book now, finding it hard to think about anything else, and I am thrilled with the way its coming together.  I hope others will find it as amusing as I do.Reubenchiorboy.jpgA Katinkabelle Artbook Kickstarter

Who is my clientele

In Marketing this is suppose to be something I know, something I am sure of. With Galleries I tend to let them decide, if the art in the gallery is contemporary, interesting and a bit edgy, and I like it, I will assume it’s a good fit.

For art shows I have to do much more leg work to make sure it will be a good fit and my clientele will actually be at the show. For instance I have learned my market doesn’t seem to be the elderly conservative women of Mesa Arizona, although to be fair I didn’t meet but a small percentage of them. My wide eyed girls appeal to little girls, both of the fairy princess and Wednesday Adams variety, aged punk rockers, tattooed Morrisey boys, and women who can see themselves in my art. It’s often hard to find a show with that exact clientele. However the galleries love the wide eyes girls so they seem to have found a home there.

The silhouette series that I have only been doing publicly about a year (they used to be my warm up works waiting for inspiration until I realized the were inspired) however had a different unsurprisingly broader appeal. They appeal to people who feel. People who have their own stories to share and find I have expressed their stories for them. I am starting to trust that is exactly what I am doing sometimes. That their story or struggle or love or unity or loss or loneliness is so powerful that they have sent the energy of it out into the universe and I have grabbed just a little bit of that energy and expressed it in a most primitive way. In color and simple shape. So my clientele for this series is anyone with a story. And everyone has a story. I just may not have gotten to yours yet.
