what in the heck geoff, I deserve nothing!!! you all deserve a gw comic though. catch me listin’ motorcycle parts on ebay, or working at the scary italian coffee shop by my house, I’ma be fine.

Here are some terrible photos of sequin things I’m willing to sell. 

the jacket and top I’ll do 20 and the dress for 50

feel free to ask me more about ‘em. The dress is size 4 (I’ve had it since middle school), the shirt and jacket are listed as small, but I think they both fit me okay, and I’m a medium

I dunno if you really want them, but don’t have any money just talk to me.

I’ll probably list them on ebay at the end of the week ‘cause I found cases of these brands (and not as intricate designs) going for 50 and this exact dress for 120. 

I’m just venting. I think a lot about art fairs and economies of all types, the big bullshit ones, the press expos, conventions, regulated selling in public places. I wanted to see more institutions follow zinefeast, and I’m excited to be a part of a truly diy project like paperjam as well. I haven’t been engaged in much lately, trying not to get too stressed. I’m out of practice in almost everything. Joe might not have insurance and also might have strep throat (figuring it all out today). If he wasn’t sick we’d have a lot more ability to sell things and promote. Everyone’s moving around in my apartment because money too. There’s a lot in my head so I haven’t been careful about words. 

I really shouldn’t have implied that ripe was part of the problem. In fact they are doing a lot to combat these problems. They were offering scholarships and seemingly set out to make the fee as low as possible. Ripe is run by a fine group of folks with the artists’ situations in mind. Let’s all continue make affordability a goal and mission statement.

To expand and vent a bit I would like to talk more about art fair transparency. Did you know artists featured in the Whitney Biennial don’t get paid? Why would the curators and board members deserve more money than the artists? The Biennial is one of the hugest fucking things and the artists are expected to only be compensated by exposure or the chance to sell? We need to be setting the precedent in our smallest art economies that artists deserve fair compensation. There should be enough of a community among fellow artist to sustain fairs by ourselves. Institutions (especially publicly funded ones) should be smart enough to provide spaces for artists, if not then they should be lobbied. There should be creative solutions so nothing needs to be paid for except the art itself, that should be the biggest priority. I run events. I know that there are always costs, but those costs should be dealt with as a sustainable community. The showrunners’ payment should be the ability to participate in the economy they help create. Allowing artists to expect that they need a certain amount of money to participate eliminates poor artists. This is true of art school itself, it is true of unpaid internships, but it doesn’t need to be true in diy spaces. We, as average participants in culture, can creatively control how we compensate art. It takes time and communication, but if you have access to those two commodities, I promise it can be done. 

I’m all flustered ‘cause my boss is away for the summer and I’m terrible at promoting myself as a freelancer. I may try to sell work on the street this week. I’ll make a custom ceramic thing, just talk to me. I’ll do whatever digital thing, odd job, etc. I dunno if I can handle a regular job right now, but maybe I’d feel more regular with one. I have to make rent this month then immediately need a small amount of cash to sustain myself for the Rhode Island Independent Publishing Expo. I’m really looking forward to it, but I wish I knew what my table fee was going to. I doubt I’ll make enough selling there to cover it.
