Cool deal! Anytime you can cut out the middleman you're doing well. A storefront shop would probably mark them up 100% and you'd only get half the sale price. So you got some sales, kept all the profit, made some neighbors very happy, and it doesn't look like it took much effort. So what kind of tools are you going to buy?

AA, I usually sell my suff off of my website (www.sahmaysan.com), unless someone wants to come by the house or meet me at my friend's gallery. I have never sold any of my art through a middleman. I started selling my carvings about 20 years ago and started Sah-may San Gyotaku to sell my gyotaku paintings in 1999. I've been selling both paintings and carvings through that business since then. I try to keep the art profits separate from the "house" money and only purchase gear with proceeds from my paintings or carvings. I needed some tools to make sanding and prep work easier.

PT, you guessed it, I bought the sander and angle grinder. I moved a few pieces of gyotaku too, so the tools were free.

Moon, a parrothead bought one that matches your palm tiki. I just finished the second cedar tiki tonight!!! I'll post pics tomorrow.

Greg, love the website. Lends lots of insight. I really like the fish rubbings. You are a multi-talented artist. For those on this board who haven't checked out GMAN's homepage, you are missing out! Really excellent stuff!

Cheers,

A-A

AA, thanks for the kind words about my gyotaku. It takes a whole different touch than carving wood with a chainsaw!!! Actually, the two are about as far apart as art forms can get. They actually complement each other and each prepares me for working with the other. I think I've found a good balance. If anyone is interested in an original piece or an open edition print of my gyotaku, please PM me.

Definitely a nice web site and great art. Looks like your neighbors were lucky to have you sparking up their sidewalk sale. Thanks for sharing.

What brand and size is your favorite chainsaw? I need something tougher.
Your work is great.
I hope to see one on every front lawn some day.
