Speaking of market research…

A temporary poverty looms on the horizon for James and Ursula, as the taxes for moving expenses finally get yoinked from the paycheck, causing it to wither and shrivel like a salted slug. Que sera sera, these things happen, money always comes from somewhere and we aren’t going to starve, we’re just down in the red for a month and forced to dip into funds that I was hoping to put towards paying off the rather hefty taxes we’re owin’ this year.(Ironically, I’m plenty busy–even got a waiting list built up again!–but they’re mostly things that won’t pay until publication and so forth. Isn’t that always the way?)

However, I’m devoting today (and possibly part of tomorrow) to doing some quick little watercolor pieces, which I’ll be putting up for auction in the $15-to-$50 range. I don’t expect to make a killing or anything, but I figure they’re in a price range low enough to appeal to people who might like to buy art but can’t afford the heftier price tags on the bigger stuff.

So, hey, anything you guys have always wanted to see? I can’t promise I’ll get to ’em, but since I’m just noodling around anyway, I’d be glad to hear anything that you liked in a past sketch or think might be a cute/neat quicky piece or whatever. So far I’ve got wombat beefcake, a chicken doomsayer, a My Little Slug, and a peculiar donkey in the works…and god knows, what *I* think people want is often wildly at odds with the reality…
