Lately I have been looking into the cost of casting materials, stone carving, press beds and other various supplies I will no longer have free access to when I graduate. Is it strange that I am excited about getting random art supply catalogs?
I have also started drawing a bit out of my comfort zone to see what I am capable of creating. I keep making clusters of faces and circular blobs.
At work I seem to be discussing art a bit more with customers. One guy I typically talk to about video games overheard that I do art and he explained that he is an artist that may be opening a print shop sometime. Another gentleman that collects sculptures was seeing if the store had anything new and we also got in a long conversation about art and artists. I ended up giving him a business card in hopes he appreciates my work and asks to purchase one or two.
