I'm a professional artist. My paintings are in a whole bunch of galleries around the country. And you know what I just did? I painted a few datalounge-themed paintings. I painted these as a lark, and I'm not sending them to a gallery. Let me know if anyone is interested in them. Check them out at the link! Click the home screen to see more of my art. Thanks!

How can we buy your Datalounge art/prints? Make more! I love it! I want a Let's Roll Cinnamon Buns sign for my kitchen.

OP, how do you get galleries to show your paintings?

Good job, OP. The style of your work enhances the often childish, juvenile behaviour that goes on here but also acknowledges the wounded inner child in all of us. I feel comprehended. They are far better than we deserve.

OP here. I have a licensing agent for cards and reprints, etc, so I legally can't print anything on my own. I sell originals through galleries and through my web site. I love painting, and am thrilled I get to do it.

It's "Let's Roll Cinnamon Rolls."

R20, with "Buns" the artist can incorporate a Matt Damonesque ass into the sign. It works on multiple levels.
|by Anonymous||reply 21||06/19/2013|
Yes, it works on the Matt Damon level with "buns." It does not work on the DL level so the "Let's Roll" portion doesn't connect and is meaningless.

These look more like greeting car illustrations than art.

Op here. Thanks for the kind comments and the couple of emails I got. As for the rude comments? WOW. I've been reading DL long enough to not be surprised, but I am surprised. I will never understand why anyone needs to be mean-spirited and unkind, especially to a stranger. I just don't get it. I hope you're not that unhappy.
