hi danny thanks for the comments. Yes, it would be good if they went big. it´d be nice to make a living from the art thing one day. Not sure if i should market them as usable fins or art objects that could be framed (?)
i like to make things that can be used, i hate the idea of classic cars in a museum- what a waste! but...How much would people pay for a set of fins at the end of the day? 3 fins=6 sides= a helluva lot of work. Maybe better as a one-off wallhanger. what are your thoughts?
i disagree they need to be sharper and cleaner myself, they´re not vector graphics designed on a computer (that could be a different avenue to explore..), they are bespoke hand drawn/painted and i think they should look that way., for me, and i think buyers, that´s the appeal- i´ve sat down and drawn these from my own ideas with my own hands, they aren´t meant to be perfect ´products´. i think they land somewhere between commercial fins with a cool design (like those nineplus ones) and that kind of punky/DIY look of just attacking yer stuff with marker pens. Again i´m open to feedback on this....(edit...saying that, the 2+1 set was done v.sketchily and not to selling standard as it was my 1st go and done just for my own board for a laugh)
Fins can be sent to me here in Spain or order some to be sent to me if new. I´ve just done a sweet log fin for a guy in holland but am waiting for him to get it before showing as it´s better as a surprise.
BTW what do you mean by "more accessible"?-i´m always interested in how ´normal´people perceive ´art´ and the idea of buying art- whether it has anything to do with their lives or not. do you mean by putting it on something familiar it makes it more appealing -less ´a piece of art´?
