Also, this recent effort aims to create a youth rebellion in Thailand, where they really, really really love their monarchs.

Ned, it was someone else's work, originally, I think I just added on a few frames at the end. I can't find the original thread to confirm. But thanks. :)

C'mon, no one will give me some source material? I'm in the mood to drunkenly animate, and I have at least 15 minutes. The time is ripe!

about done with this one, i think, though as always i'm looking at it now and i see so much that i want to work on still. i've spent way too much time on it, though, along with its cursed twin, that green one on the right.

this is my first big commission that i started at my new (well, not new now) space, so i'm hoping they'll like it. but either way, it'll probably be the last of its size (40x60") because those are difficult (for me) to sell at the moment.

nice portrait!

thanks forks! it's always weird with pastels because at any second you can just blow off all the excess chalk and powder and it completely changes everything. i took the piece of paper above and blew the biggest chunks off of it, kind of spotted in with a paper towel in some spots, and put it up on the wall. and then it's weird to decide whether or not to spray it with fixativ at that point or keep it like it to keep adding to it

professional anti- (Karl Malone), Tuesday, 24 August 2021 00:14 (three weeks ago) link

i finally finished my first big commission, one i had been working on since june. and i just realized i fucked up something, at the very beginning, when i bought the canvas. i bought one brand new, first of all - that was a mistake because it's much less expensive to stretch your own. secondly, i accidentally bought a canvas that was "hand-splined", also known as "gallery wrap".

the vast majority of canvases are the normal "stretched canvases" with staples on the back. it's the default. you can easily take these canvases off the stretcher bars for shipping (rolled up in a tube, the easiest/cheapest way), and they are suitable for framing. looks something like this:

https://i.imgur.com/u65xlpc.jpg

instead, i accidentally bought a "hand-splined" canvas, which is to add insult to injury, is more expensive. this method uses a minimum of visible staples and instead the canvas is tucked down into this little gap around the stretcher bars, including a little plastic "spline" tube that goes around the perimeter. looks like this:

https://i.imgur.com/LzCUP2a.jpg

you can't really take these canvases off the stretcher bars. you, can but it's apparently a major pain in the ass. plus, the way they treat the corners (the "gallery fold) means that they made cuts to the fabric in order to get it to lay flat. this means that even if you did manage to get the canvas off the stretcher bars (for shipping or framing), it will be more difficult to re-stretch because it's missing chunks of it that were previously cut out. this is hard to explain.

in short, i finally finished this bigass painting, and now i have to tell them that it can't be framed, that the shipping is going to be really expensive, and that if they want to try to take it off the stretchers it's going to be a pain in the ass.

i just feel destroyed

professional anti- (Karl Malone), Monday, 30 August 2021 21:24 (three weeks ago) link

like, i don't know whether to frame it go about it like "so this painting is actually gallery-wrapped, so no need to frame this one, and it can just go up on the wall as is!", or "so, it turns out that you can't frame this one, due to the way the canvas is wrapped around the stretcher bars (link to stretcher bars, link to gallery-wrap blog from 2015). and, oh yeah, i think i'm going to have to find a big crate to ship this to you in?"

professional anti- (Karl Malone), Monday, 30 August 2021 21:26 (three weeks ago) link

i guess i could offer a discount since i fucked up, but i already spent four times (2 full months) as long on it as i had originally budgeted/planned on (2 weeks!). i have very little to sell for the upcoming month because i've spending my time on this giant piece of unframeable garbage instead :(

professional anti- (Karl Malone), Monday, 30 August 2021 21:27 (three weeks ago) link

my tactic would be to contact the buyer and share all of that information directly and frankly (including how you feel about the situation) and ask how they'd like to move forward. They may not care or they may be willing to pick it up/have it dropped off at a later date.

it's just...SO much information. and in my previous communications i've made the mistake of just being WAY too much like myself, just talking way the fuck too much, too much, too much. i've been trying my best to just shut up and get to my point with them. but now i feel like i just opened up the most complicated situation, one that takes 5-10 minutes to figure out, and doesn't have a clear answer. it's not the end of the world and i'm sure it'll work out, it's just a big commission and i was really hoping they'd love the painting and tell all their friends etc. now i'm 99% sure it's going to be like a "funny story" (at best)
