1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / tattoo questions for a non-tatto artist on: July 29, 2007 06:57:47 AM
So I am a traditionally trained artist and a friend has asked me to design a tattoo for him. I know the basics of tattoo design (line work etc. and gradated color) but i was wondering if there are those out there that can give me advice for a really pimpin' tattoo design. The tattoo that he wants is an ocean landscape with waves and a hot surfer chick hangin' ten off of a longboard. It is a tribute to his hot surfer mama who passed away when he was young and I want to make sure that i do right by him to honor the tribute to his mother.

Anyone who has drawn a design to be inked?
2  Florida / Florida: Central / Brevard County Art/ Craft Group on: September 17, 2006 09:13:46 PM
Hey Brevard area crafty peeps! I'm looking to start one or more groups in Brevard County that would help us network and get to know other crafty people in this area (I know you must be out there!!!!)

These are the type of groups i'm interested in starting:

1) I'm looking to start a discussion group/ salon/ dinner group with other fine artists who would like to discuss life as an artist, trying to make a living as an artist and provide each other with honest feedback on their work. Interested artists should be serious about creating authentic and meaningful work. Ideally, interested artists would have a modern approach to their creative process, with an emphasis on conceptual thought so there is a better chance of everyone jiving.

2) Secondly, i'm interested in starting a networking group/ crafting circle with other like-minded forward thinking crafters. Those interested would have a focus on not only making but also selling their crafts and preferably have a fine art/design slant to their work. By that i mean you don't necessarily have to be formally trained but that you're crafting from your own designs and artwork.

If you think you would be interested in any or all of these groups. please respond with a comment or two and maybe we can hook it all up! I'm hoping to find enough Brevard people to get something going on a monthly basis and make some new friends!
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Fine Art & Craft Fairs.... on: July 07, 2004 06:25:42 PM
i'm wondering about any of you all out there who enter craft fairs. i've been looking into getting into that whole scene. In my research, there seems to be a very big distinction between local craft fairs and the "big" kind that cost hundreds to enter. I know that the competition is fierce and that one must be careful. Do any of you have any experience/suggestions as to getting my *stuff* together to start down  this road? Do any of you professionally copyright or patent your ideas to kepp others from stealing them? About how much startup did you need to get all that stuff going, like the tent, entry fees, tables and displays?

4  Florida / Florida: Central / Looking for Brevard (or surrounding area) Happenings..... on: June 02, 2004 05:08:53 PM
Hey everyone, I will be moving to Melbourne in approx. a month and am looking for new opportunities of all kinds. I'm looking for several things:
A) new crafty chica friends
B) cool galleries, shops, boutiques or venues for my wares (i do vintage collage type work in bookmaking, paper, jewelry, and also wall-hung work)
C) artsy fartsy groups or venues of interest
D) cool antique stores, thrift shops, junk stores, etc. to glean new goods

I am completely new to the area so any info would be appreciated! Also any info on any of the surrounding areas--- Orlando, West Palm, Vero (epsecailly venues for wares, is also welcome!) Huh
5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Non-payin' ebay bidders...what to do... on: April 27, 2004 04:05:26 PM
I'm wondering how all you crafty ebayers deal with the deadbeat bidders. It's gotten to the point where i don't accept money orders since probably 75% of the people who want to pay with them a) never send them or b) only send them after repeated hassling. I'm all for the good old fashioned money order, but I can't wait around for the money and hold the merchandise.

I'm leary of just leaving bad feedback because i don't want tarnish my own rep--and i hate putting all those restrictions on my listing about, "you must do this, you must do that, you must ride a camel and pick up your merchandise in person...OR ELSE!!!" I'm always turned off by those listings but now I see why those people are like that! How can you be firm about your policies and keep your good rep without being a beotch?
