The process of creating one million pieces of original art all by hand is tiring and time consuming enough. Then, when you lock yourself into offering some of those pieces up for sale you then end up having to photograph and scan and crop them all plus all of the things that come with posting them online. There are descriptions and conversations and it's as time consuming as it is rewarding. [I'm not complaining here at all, mind you.]
Scanning and all of that is mostly no fun to me at all. And I usually wait until I'm in some certain mood where my brain is okay with doing it for an hour or two and I take the energy as it comes. There are times when I'm in scanning mode that I just do a big batch of a hundred or so. Later on after I get some distance from the pieces themselves I get some urge to work on them a little bit more. Not a lot mostly but little additions or modifications that would probably go unnoticed if I didn't mention them. But, to be honest about it, I sometimes do get a bit carried away and the finished pieces might not look much like they did at the time I scanned them and posted them online.
I say this because it's something that is ultimately not the very best way to do things and, truthfully, it's entirely unreasonable to expect that everyone would be accepting of such an eccentricity. [Yup. Let's just be nice here and let it be called that, okay? An eccentricity.] You should receive the exact, precise same thing that you see to be the same thing that order and subsequently do receive.
I'm just making sure that you know that such a possibility does sort of exist for some of the work that's out there. [Posted prior to October 19, 2009] But in the future I'm never, ever going to bother them again once they are scanned and posted. Unless it somehow pains me to leave it otherwise and then I'll just remove it and rescan it.
So, yeah. If you've ordered anything prior to about a week ago then there stands a pretty good chance that your order might be a little different than what you expected. You'll invariably have received a couple of extra pieces because that's what I do with nearly every order. But the ones that you specifically ordered may somehow look different and I apologize up front about that. I'm not running some bait and switch thing. I just need to leave them alone after they are uploaded for sale. But, regardless of anything else, if you're not satisfied with them as they are when you receive them then please just let me know. I'll fix things to whatever degree satisfies you. [Who knows, maybe you'll like them the new way better?]
And for any new orders I promise that I've taken steps to just leave the things alone as soon as I scan and post them. I've got a system in place to deter my compulsion to keep working on them and it really won't happen again. Or it won't happen too easily and if I do decide to make any changes I'll remove the old things and start from scratch. What you see will be what you get and I give you my word about that.
Just so you know.
