Well, I attempted to sell art prints at Marscon this year. While it was a fun convention, I have mixed feelings. 

I didn't sell much and barely made my booth fee back (and only because I slashed princes in half today.) I also lost a lot of money stocking up on prints and closing the shop this weekend. I tried not to take it personally, there were three of us in the "artist's alley," and we all did poorly, I think because we were in the auction room, which didn't get much foot traffic. I didn't expect to make bank, but I thought I would do a LITTLE better than that. It was a little disappointing. 

BUT, the other two artists were incredibly talented and I enjoyed talking with them. It's so great to talk art (and all the joys and frustrations that come with it), with other artists and people who know exactly what you're talking about. We shared some tips and tricks with each other as well. One of them was Mark Jackson, who's work I've been admiring in my White Wolf books for over fifteen years. I bought his original Anatole painting, so that was a plus. 

There were some really kick ass costumes, and I met a lady who might be able to make my faun legs, which I'm pretty excited about. 

I don't know if I'll do Marscon again next year, but if I do, I definitely don't want to be in the auction room.

I'm a female tattoo artist living in Virginia, specializing in pin-ups!

Sorry, I am not currently available for commissions, and I especially do not draw wives and girlfriends. I stay busy enough drawing at work, plus most of those custom tattoo drawings end up being homework if I'm booked with appointments all day, so at this point I need all the me time I can get to work on my own projects and experiment with new methods.

Please visit www.khaosink.com for the full gallery and bio.

Find me on Facebook by searching for Khaos Ink - The Art of Spike Jones.

I have disabled all prints on DA. If you would like to purchase a print of anything in my gallery, drop me a message and I can have it shipped to you directly from the print house. Plus 10% of all print sales are donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation!
