From the thread with my art in it:

Your enthusiasm is appreciated, I feel less afraid to show my designs here (than IRL, offline, to general public).
4 more freshly posted there...
Descriptions of next 4 posted images.
When referring to "sides", I mean points of symmetry.
I don't title them, so instead I just mention features.
3rd: (in entire thread): double (9-sided) mandala, colored pencils on matte board, 1996
4th: small single (4-sided) mandala: markers on paper, 1996
5th: maze, colored pencil on matte board, 1996
6th: dots, ink on paper, 2005.
Have many pieces that haven't yet been scanned in, that's part of why so many of these are decade old.

Belfast, I wrote this on the other thread but am re-posting here in regards to adhoc's request for a commission piece:
Sophist wrote:Or, Belfast, if you don't feel like you could give/sell a piece (I know you've mentioned this on the other thread), maybe you'd consider having it scanned like at Kinko's or something and making a limited number of prints and then sell the prints. You could keep the original and sell the limited edition prints.
I have been thinking about this with my own work and think it would be a good compromise between my difficulty in giving/selling my art but actually letting other people have it.
You have to be careful about ensuring that the person buying it recognizes they are getting a print. A lot of people would pay more for an original, and perhaps not as much for a print.
You can always sell as many prints as you want (unless you have a limited edition), but it's just important to note.
I'm disinclined to go through complicated process of making prints, though I recognize the intent of suggesting it. If I have a good color copy am less opposed to letting the original go (selling it). Simplicity (to extent it's possible/practical) is paramount in order for me to get something accomplished-additional steps are obstacles that can derail the entire "train" of action.
