When I saw the news that a Jeff Koons sculpture of an inflatable rabbit had sold at auction for $91 million, it got me thinking about what a colossal sum of money that is… and I wondered if a sell a drawing of it for $91 (approximately £71 at time of drawing). If my maths serve me right, that’s 0.0001% of the sculpture’s price… and I bet I spent longer making this drawing than Jeff Koons did making the sculpture…
I’ve been very quiet on here, social media and pretty much everywhere lately. It’s difficult to know what to share when I’m not doing anything creative… Basically, since around September last year, all I’ve done is prepare for Christmas with Yeomans Car Art, print and post orders over Christmas, and now I’m in the middle of switching over my Yeomans Car Art website, which involves a lot of mind-numbing spreadsheet tapping and image uploading; none of this is really “instagram-ready”. So, as I say, it’s difficult to know what to share. The only creative work I’ve done during this time, has been commissions and often these are purchased as gifts so difficult to share images of these too.
The whole thing is rather frustrating, so last night I forced a pencil into my hand for the first time in an age and drew a portrait of my son.
It’s an ok drawing of a little boy… it’s not really my little boy though! Oh well… more practice needed.
I have just finished around 15 new car sketches which i have been framing up, ready for sale on Artfinder.
Artfinder have now introduced a minimum price of £20 for artworks sold on the site, so I have had to change the pricing... before they were £10 each + £8 shipping... Now, each frame is priced at £20 and UK shipping is included in that.
I'll be adding them to Artfinder over the coming days... so keep checking back!
Hope you like them!
