i was going to scan in some doodles & sketches because i have not been able to get any pages done. the page i was working on, i messed up and now i have to start over.
and now my scanner is dead. there is no light. it pretends to scan, but everything just comes out black.
that can’t be good.
so i have to buy a new scanner…with no money.
ironically, i was going to post about how i need to figure out how to draw more attention to my work so that i might actually make some money? or at least get a bigger audience for my work.
and now i can’t even post new work…here’s a re-run. tank girl as van gogh in pastel.
update: after the initial pain and horror of looking at the black screen & thinking, “that’s exactly how i feel right now,” i do have to realize my scanner (which long ago lost its ability to print & copy) is pretty old. i honestly do not remember when i bought it. a new one might do my art more justice & not have that blurry spot that is on all of my scans. i think i can find a scanner-only for $50. it bends/breaks my buy-nothing new rule (i blog more about this over at quixoticmama.com)–unless i look for a used one. i also need to find where i can donate/recycle my dead scanner. i am living on an extremely limited income. this morning my ex-husband told me he doesn’t even think phone sex is a thing anymore, so i don’t know what i am going to do for money. being paid for art would be unbelievable. which is how i feel about it right now, unable to believe (in myself.)
