oh yeah, sean's website...

i'm sorry, that is a huge turnoff.

the whole 'i'm self-taught, aw shucks' thing... written in the third person on a sophisticated website. so what. francis bacon was self-taught...

and the bio part -

"Sean briefly attended community college in Denver studying painting part time on scholarship while working as a busboy. Then the art department scholarships ran out.

He couldn't afford to pay his own way, so he took what little money he had saved and some money made from painting portraits of people's pets and went to France to stay with a penpal and teach himself french (mostly from movies.)"

again.. what? everybody with a degree in art is from some wealthy background? i got my degree in 1990 and i'm STILL paying back the student loans from that.

the art department scholarships ran out so he had to drop out and move to france? poor baby!

blah... sorry sean, i like your dolls... just turned off by the hard-knock life marketing and folksy commercialism. don't hate me...

i'll probably delete this later.

The thing is, I saw Sean's work here in Cville long before I met hom or knew anything about his bio or where he lives now and still really liked the stuff. The work holds up on its own IMO, whatever the story is.

Martin said...

no, i like the dolls.. and have never met him.

just saying i'm turned off by the website...

Sean here to defend myself. Someone else put the website together for me. I never liked the self taught thing to be honest. People said people like to hear the artists' story. and everyone has it hard, that's right. I never said I had it harder. So, the outsider thing was a bad fit and bad choice, I would have shown anywhere honestly, I just landed in the outsider bin. They took my work first.It is true though, I went to france on cat portraits. I was like Peewee's Dotty who only wanted to go to Paris. I'm changing the site soon hopefully through a trade to reflect what I want to try to do better. You made a good point. I don't have college debt. -Sean
