Sell, Sell, Sell! Everything Must Go!

(Just pretend there's a photo of a fat, toupee-wearing, furniture-warehouse guy in a loud polyester suit here.)

Okay, all hyperbole aside, I've decided (after much deliberation) to drop the prices in my online art store. I've been reading a lot of spirited debate about how artists should never cut their prices or give discounts - lots of comparison to bargain basement stores, etc. But ultimately I think that's an easy argument to make if you're already an established, successful artist. Me, I'm really just starting out in my art career, such as it is. I need all the help I can get.

That being said, I'm not going to drop them permanently. That strikes me as a bad (self-defeating) career move. So just as an experiment, prices have been cut by 1/3 for the remainder of March. I'm curious to see what effect, if any, this will have on sales.

I've also added two recently-finished pieces to my Automotive gallery. You can see all of the work here.

Shit. It just occurred to me that I basically posted an infomercial here.
