You are one of those people who really appreciates the value of art, and I really like that about you. It's a rare thing that I meet someone who understands the kind of work that goes into each piece of art.

That said, you commented that a lot of things in the art show deserved to go home, there was a lot of nice art but honestly I mostly saw limited edition prints (which I don't really buy), it seemed the majority of the show was that. I would have loved to see more originals honestly. I really look forward to that part the most. Looking at a piece of art that has brush strokes or marker lines just really is /awesome/.

Sales were indeed rather abysmal this year (for me anyways but I priced my items for prices I wouldn't be disappointed if they went so..maybe that's my fault) but I am thankful that I sold anything at all, because it means that the things that went will truly be appreciated rather than casually purchased because it's their murrsona (which there's nothing wrong with that, but I don't like to undersell myself either just to draw a yiffy yiffy fox cuz I know it will sell, i like to draw things I enjoy).

And yeah this individual is indeed arrogant, but I try to take away a bigger message from it being "don't worry about it just keep on keepin' on, people will always have their reasons, it doesn't mean you're doing anything wrong"
