Yeah, I'm touchy - it's an insanely long month. Take the few hours you spent in line and times that by 100, that's how much time and energy we've put into this show. Compound that with the insane number of FB and EB messages I've gotten this past week with inane questions, PB requests and complaints about line sitters and you'll be understanding that I've got very little patience for people complaining when we're doing our best... especially if we're bending over backwards to make sure that works go to real fans.maddog76 wrote:You seems rather touchy, jesus. That's fine about the time, I'm over it. I do appreciate the "test" however I HAD NO WAY OF KNOWING THIS IN LINE WHEN I MADE MY POST. I've personally given you thousands of dollars over the years, you're welcome. I have been to many, many spoke art shows (see you in 2 weeks at Ark Market) and I was not prepared for this. I got in line at 2pm, and didn't leave till 8pm and all I got was the regular editions. Every previous show Chuck/Welker/Sonic went much faster.Ken wrote:Yes, one at a time. Then they look though archive prints, stare at the panels. Bullshit. Like 10 people an hour. drymount spoke art.maddog76 wrote:do they just let, like, one person in at a time or something???maddog76 wrote:drymount this. Been in line for four hours now.

My posts were born out of spending an entire saturday waiting in line while my wife texts me death threats for being gone for so long.
A suggestion for next time would be to separate the archive prints. "this panel and 2 foils of rhyme and reason" would take two seconds.
Doesn't matter what you do though, you're selling crack with Sperry's and Spusta's and I'll always be back for more regardless of how you run these sales.
P.S. please stop smoking, it's gonna kill you. Try vaping and lower the nicotine level over time. Worked for me.
Your suggestion of separating archive prints is something we actually were doing. For people who needed more time to browse the archive stuff, we asked them to purchase their panel and Reason/Rhyme prints first. But, since so many of the archive items only had one copy available, people still needed time and of course had to get back in line to purchase an archive. Again, if someone's been waiting in line for hours (or days) I need to balance both allowing them the opportunity to enjoy the show while also moving the line along as quickly as possible.
Glad you're more understanding now of where we were at and how/why we did things this way.
For Welker's upcoming show, we're probably going to do a lottery so that'll hopefully be easier for our local fans.
Appreciate your support over the years - but just so it's known, if anyone talks fudge on me or my gallery... I will clap back.
