Hadrosaur Tea by ursulav Hadrosaur Tea by ursulav
Just another small quicky for Anthrocon. 8 x 10, mixed media. I do this thing every year--I see the big Con art shows on the horizon, I clutch my skull, and I go "What do I paint? What will people buy?" Yes, I do go "What will people buy?" I know, I know, artists are supposed to operate unsullied by such commercial considerations, subject only to the whim of the muse. And indeed, some of them do. Those of us who like regular meals, however, ask ourselves "What will people buy?"

"Foxes!" I think. "Wolves! Big cats! Horses!" And all of this is true. And I reach for the sketchbook, and stare at it for five minutes blankly, and then when next I come to, the page has wombats dressed like the guy from "Clockwork Orange" and small cute hadrosaurs having tea.

Hey, I just said I ASKED myself what people will buy. I didn't say I ever got around to painting it.

Prints are available for $10 plus shipping, original will be going to Anthrocon, and will be for sale if it returns unsold. Send a note or visit [link] for print orders!

Ugh, I'm currently stuck in the same sort of position. All the predictably popular stuff is just what I can't seem to find inspiration to draw.

Anyway, what makes you such an interesting and fun artist to watch is your lack of convention. I like and prefer that you would draw little hadrosaurs having tea. :D It might not be the most obvious and popular choice in subjects, but it's earned you quite a few very wierd and very didicated followers. So, pip pip!

Don't feel too ashamed for thinking about what people buy. Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol made quite a style by pondering that very question. Ironically, they ended up unlocking some fundamental questions about what art really is. Besides, I love these little guys! Aaaw, one's holding a cookie, that's adorable.

Regardless of the fact you didn't do what you thought would sell... this will ;) Looking through your recent stuff, most seems to be for Anthrocon. I'll bet you don't come back with any of them :p

I think that if you had plushies or some other soft squishy thing made in their likeness, you'd earn quite a lot of money that you'd be able to use to paint more of this kind of stuff. Just a thought for your convention. Are stuffed animals considered art?
