Sometimes having so many pieces of art laying around can be a little wearing on your psyche. Especially when they are all in some varying stages of completion or if they are old enough that you don't wanna look at them anymore. Or they need to be scanned/counted/documented in some way and you don't want to deal with that.
[The pieces in this recently discovered box are probably all of those things.]
Sometimes all of the 'busywork' is a welcome task and it allows you to sort of forget the creative side of things and just do the math basically. But I do feel like having a robot to help with this stuff would make life easier.
- Needs Something More
- To the printing studio
- Send to Chris
- New from Dyer/Ready to Scan
- Needs Numbering
- Confirm Date of Completion
- Save for Gallery
- Hold for [Buyer/Pre-Order/Request]
- Verify Scanned/Documented
- Send to Gallery
- Ready to frame
- Re-Scan Hi-Res
And, yeah, the thing is that while I am sure I complain in my head and out loud about the drudgery that comes with scanning and numbering these things I genuinely don't mind it as much as I think I do. The fact is that even though I uncovered a box of pieces I didn't necessarily account for [or am not sure where and when or if I did] and there is some backlog of busywork still left to do I like seeing things in this state.
We've made a lot of art over the years. Just a whole lot. Any dread that may come is easily enough diminished when I'm reminded that whether the results are good or bad or both or neither there have always been results. And that's one of the more important things to have come from all of this.
[Okay. Off to the grind.]
