In order to raise money for my upcoming feature, currently titled "Cheatin'", our studio decided to have an open studio art sale.
We promoted the event everywhere – even when I picked up my prize at the ASIFA East Awards Ceremony, I blurted out a promo for it.
The really cool part of the art sale was actually looking for the possible art to sell. Going way back to "Your Face" and "How to Kiss" and up to the "Dog" series and "Idiots and Angels", it was great to revisit some of the old drawings. Although the sale wasn't a smashing success, it was a good start to the fund raising for my feature. People who came had a great time and asked if I'd be doing it again.
Maybe every four months I could hold an open studio/party/art sale… what do you think? It's the only way I can stay away from those Hollywood sharks.
Thanks for reading S.J.!
