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 old were you before you were diagnosed as bipolar?

Love the Joni one. Hilarious, OP.

Lovely. But you didn't show my dick as big as it is.

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: I am not sure if this (you) are for real or not but I really like the art at the link. It's kind of simple and pure and very natural.

by Anonymousreply 506/19/2013

Love them! They would make a lovely set of note cards, as well!

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

by Anonymousreply 706/19/2013

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.

Can you paint little Barnaby with his mouth a circle: "Please! Someone shit in my mouth!!"

by Anonymousreply 1106/19/2013

Note cards are a great idea. As would be small prints. I would totally buy either of those things.

I clicked to buy This.Never.Happened and, boy, was I disappointed.

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.

Really, I love these. Do you take DL requests?

I, too like the idea of making them into note cards.

Enjoyed the non DL art as well.

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

by Anonymousreply 2006/19/2013

R20, with "Buns" the artist can incorporate a Matt Damonesque ass into the sign. It works on multiple levels.

by Anonymousreply 2106/19/2013

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.

That should be:

These look more like greeting car illustrations than art.

Everything has a very self-conscious "What will sell in a gift shop" vibe to it.

by Anonymousreply 3206/20/2013

your aesthetic is remedial.

It belongs on a greeting card.

I emailed you, op.

Ignore the anonymous critics. Geez, people. If you can't say anything nice . . .

These are fun, OP.

Dumbshit at R38, why the fuck would you post that in this fun thread??

R38, I dare you to post that rant on all of the most recent 30 threads here on DL then.

I would love to see Barnaby snacking on some Almond Roca at a nursing home.

I really love the expression on your crocodiles. You have a cute style, you should illustrate books for children.

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.

by Anonymousreply 5706/21/2013

Promoting oneself and trying to sell products are mortal sins on Datalounge.

You have done both. And you're surprised you got some negative blowback?

OP, people here can be assholes, you've been here long enough to know that. Sadly, some people just *like* to be mean. I don't get it, and find it a bit pathetic.

That being said, I love you art. it makes me smile, and has such a fun and joyful quality to it. When I have a bit of money, will contact you. :)

Don't let the bastards get ya down!!

I do love this idea from upthread:

It's not my favorite style of art (overly infantilized for my tastes), but it did make me chuckle, OP. There will be bitches here, but that is what makes the DL such a great forum. Be proud of your work, and keep on painting!
