The Write-Off Project

In the interest of saving money, studying my own consumption and engineering my behavior a bit, I've decided to create a piece of art for every single physical thing that I buy for a year. Then I'm gonna write everything off on my taxes.

I stocked up on non-perishable food and supplies from WinCo to prepare, and am currently in the process of painting or drawing every single item I buy between April 17th 2018 and April 15th 2019. They will all be for sale on my website as they are finished. The project is likely to take far longer than a year to complete though.

Services and digital goods won't be I won't be painting the act of getting a haircut, taking a taxi or subscribing to Netflix. All artwork I make must be a physically created piece though; so no digital paintings or photoshopping.

Should be "fun'.

I'll be updating the blog every now and then as art is finished. All work is available for purchase here.

Daily Face 102

Hey want to help support my art, and get a cool new twitter AVI or Facebook profile pic? Well, I'm going to start letting people submit their own photos to be used as reference for my daily face digital sketches.

If you sponsor a post for $45, you'll get a full-res file of the image in the format you prefer (these are all done at a much higher res than what's posted online). I think the portraits would make great avatars for social media, and are also suitable for printing out at 11" X 14". Payment can be made through paypal on a simple webform; you'll be added to a queue and I'll start doing the commissioned faces in the order I receive them.

I'm also going to be donating $15 for each sponsorship to my friend Hannah Barry's crowdfunding campaign for medical costs. You can read more about that or donate here.
