Very busyHello:Things have gotten pretty hectic my way. So please excuse for not answering, etc.Hope things are going better for you.Thanks
Some thoughts on DA's 11th anniversayI feel nothing. Definitely not joy.I enjoy the friends I have met here. I like hearing the wonderful stories people tell of the DA community coming together for them in crisis,etc.The DD's and prizes people have received.Yet for all the talk of how DA loves you (from CEO to staff with some exceptions) it seems like empty words to me.So excuse me if I don't jump up and down with joy.

Will DA be adding in the shops a way to create books for art collections, literature, etc like Blurb, and if so when? And if not why? $spyed: We'd likely partner with a company like Blurb, they're amazing, but first we need to change the submission process to add some procedures for how we integrate with such companies. That is stuff we're looking at and developing against right now, so, absolutely! "See what happens.In other news I came across this site called iscri

Too expensive, too cheapEdit: Just wanted to add one more thought.Remember that some kids here are just playing. They can either draw for practice and earn nothing or practice by drawing commissions for small amount of money. Even a small gratification like that is a boost for someone who's just starting out and encourage them to get better. I remember when I was starting out, nobody except my two friends would want even a free request from me, so I know the feeling "at least someone out there wants it".In my opinion teen artists do not pose much threat to professionals who are way faster and more skilled than them. Moreover, they have school and homework, so there is a limited time they can spend on drawing. Am I wrong?---Some complain that artists have too high prices. Surprisingly however, others complain that teen artists ruin the market with their cheap art. People who complain about that often advise to get a real part-time job at McDonald's or something instead of selling art.But to me this sounds
