It’s hard not to take it personal. You spend a year shooting photos, two months laying them out and getting printed, then put them online and nothing happens. Well, some stuff happens… people share the love and you feel proud about the work you’ve done, but ultimately you can’t help thinking “Why don’t people want this? Is it too expensive? Too lame? Not worth the effort of buying?”.
Then one day you realize the frakkin’ Buy It Now button on your shop is broken.. A quick fix and within half an hour you have your first order in two months. By the end of the day your hand is cramped from all the addresses you had to write out. A good problem to have.
So what I’m saying is, thanks everyone for your support. It really couldn’t have come at a better time for me and my artistic pursuits.
