Maleficent by miketcherry
Maleficent, Graphite Pencil on Paper, 11 x 14 inches.

Seemed like a nice "witchy" themed piece to be sketching on Essex St this past Saturday for the tourists.   You want them to be able to to recognize the character and then marvel at your talent.  It worked for an hour.  Then the wind came up, blew the postcard spinner over (postcards everywhere) nearly took the canopy away, and sent various other artworks flying, with only one fatality, a small framed piece.  See the gods were against me, I packed up and went and had a beer.  There's a story behind every piece of artwork.

The original is now on sale at eBay.

Personal Quote: "Don't bump my arm when I'm drawing."
I dislike posting my work with watermarks obscuring and defacing the images.  But I've learned the hard way that they will be stolen if not.  I've never minded people downloading them for inspiration on there own work, or even if they would just like a small image to have.  But full blown theft and misrepresentation of authorship is totally another thing.  I've been targeted with both.  One culprit was using images of mine to represent himself as an artist to scam on women.  Then there was the message I got saying, "I really like this drawing and it would make a perfect desktop image except for the watermark".  Translation, "I'd steal that if it wasn't marked".

Really?  Don't get me started on how some people don't think art, artists' time or work has any real value.

Things have been slow work wise.  Here in Salem, we're all waiting for tourist season to start.  Lots of snow days this year, so the kids are still in school till the end of June!  But soon, the tourists and money will start to flow.  We all hope.

I was sure you were on my watch list, but it seems you weren't. I have just rectified that oversight. Sorry it took so long.

Thanks for your comment about my stuff I put on eBay, much appreciated. Happy to say all went well on that front. So the toe in the water wasn't too bad an experience.

Hoping this comment finds you well and your drawing hand in fine fettle.

All the best Mike. Aaron aka "Biker"

Just dropping by to see how you're doing.  I'm presently trying to help my son get his hours for his driving test to get his license.  He just re-started piano lessons after I mentioned it as a possibility to spend his free time. 

Work is a wonderful distraction as is buying food for some of my favorite waitresses at a local restaurant. 

I had one young lady complain to me that she ate all three cinnamon buns I baked for her in one sitting and promptly told me she needs to go on a diet and I can only bring vegetables in the future.  That's not going to happen. 

I wanted to wish you well and encourage you to keep creating those beautiful images you create.

You only draw naked women? I've never seen anyone waste their lives so much before.

Perhaps you should avoid looking at the Statue of David by Michaelangelo.  I'm sure it would violate the standards you seem to be holding Mike to.  Or perhaps you are unaware of how much other people appreciate the human form.  It must be a sad existence for you to look for all the things you despise and let other people know your disappointment in their taste.  You'd better get busy.
Venellope-August Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2014
Get "busy" with what, exactly?
voradtralundir Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2014
You have a mission dear.  I think you need to alienate every artist here that posts something you disagree with.  Eventually they  will block you and isolate you because they don't want your negativity on their page when there are so many more that appreciate their work besides you
