Lesson learned

When you want the job done right, have the right professional do it or ask a girl to do it. What have I learned this time around, carpenters are not drywall people nor are they floating floor installers. You would have thought I would have learned that by now. The first contractor didn’t know how to do drywall mud and screwed it up in the master bedroom, the current contractor’s crew does not know how to do non-textured walls. I kinda of gave up and said I would just finish the studio and after looking at the walls again tonight, they didn’t fix the bad mud job completely, at night, with the light shining on it, it looks horrible, you can see exactly where they didn’t do it right – where they taped the joints and then ran a big blob of mud over the top but never sanded it down so all you see its a big horizontal wavy thick line across the middle of the wall, big gapping holes around the bottom of the wall and above the window, thick blobs of mud across the wall plate areas and a hole under one electric outlet. They did do some adjustments and when they asked me if it looked ok, they pointed out the changes, pointed out the corrections – in the sunlight, it looks ok, but at night ugh, it looks horrible, it will drive me bananas. So unless I plan on sanding down the whole room and just starting over, next best alternative is to get some paintable wall paper and put it up and repaint...

Art Shows

It was definitely an experience being in an art show, I’d rather sell online and plan an event than be in one, to be honest. When my art starts feeling like work, then it’s no longer fun or my downtime. Also kind of felt like since I didn’t really know anyone in the art community (aka, I don’t have time in the middle of the day to go to art meetups and hang out at the library nor would I do that if I had free time), my art exhibit was in the location away from the main event (beer and wine). The Artist Den is awesome and the people are incredibly awesome but the event seems very unplanned out, there were no signs directing people to the other art exhibits or even people directing people to the other locations, sure there was a map and balloons but I didn’t see any signs, pointing more art down that street. And the few people that came through to the Artist’s Den, were checking out the photos above my exhibit created by the Artists at the Den. My event that I planned last year while small at least had signs posted on all the freeway exits directing people to the event. As an artist exhibiting work for the first time, I’ve been drawing and painting and designing since I was little but never had the time or desire to actual exhibit my art until recently but I think that the resources for new artists aren’t relatively available, for example, how does one price there art? I got one snobby answer from...

re-design

redesigning a website and company image takes time, we are working on merging two different sub-companies into one full-fledged design company. We don’t just do website design, this is our fun outlet where we will showcase our artwork, our website designs, our random remodeling projects. Just getting the right logo and background took eons of time to figure...
