The final Chapter in the folk dual as the 13th of dec rolls around stuff is going to So is this the end of the folk dual between me and red, its been like how many years,. this time around i have been making a Red inspired stye, as he was making jolly chimps, So whats instore for the next hummm, i think i am scaleing it down to three posting this 13 lot, is to much it never really gets bid up much this time i can work the deal, make more an event out of it,
Red Mud Texas, there is a lot of work going up to ebay on the 13th deal, this piece was in the last ebay 13th deal, its like Red's smoking dark shaded black sillouttte figures with eyes and smoking
this painting was made about Red, he told me he was lynched once, now the defintion of lynchin legal, was a gang of people beetting some one up, i think the story he told was a gang of black youths were threatening him on his porch and they got into a fight, and almost busted his head, had to go to the hospital.
the famous painting Bosco made i did a copy or inspire copy of it, i made red a monkey clapping his hands to the puppet show, ,
Stratton had these four up on ebay Strattons ebay link
i dont know if they moved or not, but they are great!, me and red have been trying to figure out the ebay deal in the limelight of monsterpartys explosion, one of the things that flys in the face of reds stradgy of selling is alot posting , low pricing, but also, it helps to have some major German magizine pushing you to,so who knows where the bidders come from its aint ebay thats for sure, . but marketing aside, monster party (ebay ID), shoots out like 3 a day all sort differnt in idea and look but in the same style he works in sets of work like circus banner painting, retablos, and pulp mag advertisinments, sorta sexy ,feminist maybe, ahh, but catchy by what he writes, .
I tell red that arty art, like shat stratton did, i think is real good but will have a hard time moving on ebay's fationablity, like if you do sucessed in selling on ebay it might be your work is fationalable, its also premature to be thinking in the larger scope of good art on ebay, but it can go to your head fast i can only imagine whats happening to monsterparty, pulling a grand a day in sales, that rival if not trumps any NYNY artist, who has a make shift rep , but can he hold it?.
I tell Red , the art world is big, i mean big , by who buys work there tons of folks out there with money to burn on art, and by ebay prices its the bargin bend, So back to Stratton,
He has been up to this for a year or so, posting and the amount of work put in to this don't yeild the sales,, me and red dress ourselves up alot for the lots Monsterparty did none of that, we kept maybe 2-5 postings he was at moments 20-40 now down to 28, we , lonely fat nerds who don't socialize much , he a chief in miami, and German, , where Stratton fits in to all this, i guess he is an backwoods type out in the boone docks, ,
ultimately the only thing one has is the capiblity to flood the place with your art, and see who pick it up, that about it on ebay,. ,
one to the conclusion i made about art reps, is its less about good art more about effective socializing, now if your lucky and good work and charm and relationships do help, you have to have the goods and keep them rolling, and not flatten yourself out on some repeat look,. , ebay is funny cause , it really depends on what you do, as an artist not the art but the crowd you can get to go to ebay as the vehicle of sale plus its an auction not a retial place, big difference.
if any would say to Stratton is don't quit or let it get to ya just make more and build up a store, heck Monster party had at least three years of being flat and carrying 40 plus in back stock ave. no sale was 9.99,
now to Red stradigy thats a death grip of telling the public your worthless, !. but i always said art is a time line just cause now nobody wants it now,, it might be that nobody knows its there, ,.. and quit the thinking that once you poset something all 23 views constitute the "world",
So i think the site is uploading again, so i am back on the site, i cannt tell if anybody visits the site, the old software this movable text fall out of date and certian things fall outta wack, so whats in store?
i think after going out to Rilys out on the back bone i am going to move the direction of the site to more, rural dive bar ideas like funny things i find in them along with odd ball buildings and BBQ joints,
ok for those who do show up to this site, i just realiszed that, this dec 28 is the 10 year aniversity of the site, 10 years of bloggin , whats its worth who reads this??, well reflecting on this i thought its just like me to quit this site literaly months before the 10 year deal, , its seems to be uploading again, this sumer i couldn't up load and created that other blogger siite , i like my own domain here chickendeadchicken its my id, and sorta body, etc, all this other crap like FB and blooger even Utube you can have that ripped from ya if the wrong partys don't like you etc,
So i am chicken DEad chicken, so to speak and i am gonna uplaod these new works i think take the site on a new dirty direction, more dirty Fuck it!
===== this site has been around almost 10 years, first entry was in 2003, but the software is out of date its takes for ever to upload and i cann't add any bells and whistles or gadgets to it so i am going to carry on with blogspot (gag!) but at least i am carrying on, the content to the site will remain up and ill be doing clean up on it slowly , so mostly whats going to be up on this next site well be the same here --- thanks for viewing--cheers
