To cap off 2010 I wanted to do it in style, so like I brought in the year with a week long giveaway, at the end of the year I cleaned out my studio and had a fire sale! It came about because I was organizing and cleaning out my office for the first time in months, and months. After a while I began separating the drawings I was coming across into "keep" and "burn" piles.
Hence, fire sale! I decided to make these available on my shop for pretty good deals.
The evening I photographed and posted everything, after wards I thought, oh geez, I just wasted my time. I woke up the next morning to 1/3 of the fire sale having sold! I was pretty excited. In the end I think 3/4ths of the collection sold. I'm so pleased with the way it worked.
Like I said, most every is gone now though there are still a few pieces left in the fire sale collection.
Here's some pictures of stuff before the rush,
And a few of my favorites :
Thank you for making the fire sale a success!
And of course,
This is other side of the "fire sale" -- the part where I burned stuff that didn't make the cut! You can't have a fire sale with out the threat of real fire, right?
Behold, an Alice invitation gets the burn.
I had set up my new fire bowl out back in front of the garage. That's me with the staff there. I used it to incessantly poke the fire into puffing ash into my friends' faces.
Again, thanks so much for making my fire sale great -- it really turned into a success. I wasn't sure at first if I should even take the time to put it together but now I can see it becoming a year end staple.
