Risky Business

21 Oct

I consider anyone who orders custom work from me to be somewhat of a risk taker. I mean, you have an idea of what the painting will look like as far as the colors I use, and you know it will be cartoony…but unless you hand me a bunch of instructions on what you want in a painting you are going to get some surprises. My favorite paintings are when people give me a loose theme to work with or allow me to use my characters as an addition to the portrait or landscape. I love that the collaboration starts with my client, I put the painting together, then they get to come up with a story or caption that goes with the painting. The paintings truly become alive within this partnership. This also means I get the best kinds of clients, people who are fun, willing to take a risk, spontaneous and creative themselves (even if it’s unknown to them).

Now I am writing this because I am very happy to announce that I am sponsoring this week’s episode of Risk! For those who are not familiar with Risk! it is a podcast, hosted by Kevin Allison, “where people tell true tales they never thought they’d dare to share”. I’ve listened to every episode and it is one of my favorite podcasts. I love Risk! for it’s honesty, hilarity, and just good stories told by some of the ballsiest people. It is one of the best ways you can spend an hour.
