I've been painting and now inking this piece, drawing always in small scale is been my usual, it was a bit daunting doing a bigger piece, but now that I am 3 quarters done it feels rewarding 😅, doing this for a gallery show next month 😊

@paperdigits
I must say this isn't "my" show, its a "group show" where many artist will participate 🙂

In my case, years of "knocking doors" and most important, networking, emails, socials, visiting the galleries, getting to know other artist, curators, etc. Also, some galleries have open calls for submissions. And even with all that I only been barely 50% lucky, meaning more than half of my submissions weren't accepted, so yeah, patience I guess is the short answer 😅

@Quiralta thanks. I'm pretty bad at socializing. 🥴 maybe posting to my website will have to be enough.

@paperdigits
Yeah, isn't easy at times, I spend more than 10yrs in a semi-hermit style of life, so it takes not only time but effort to break out of it.
In the other hand, getting to know people in the art community (like with any other community) is getting into a similar mindset group, thus much easier to socialize than with people who you don't relate to.

At the end all depends what you want to do with your art, but just know that opportunities rarely if ever came knocking down your door🙃

@WeMKi
Thank you so much for the kind words!! I'm humbled!🙏🏼 🙏🏼 🙏🏼 🙂
