Rosanne Rosanadana; Gilda Radner from Saturday Night Live, used to say “It’s always something.”
There are so many times this statement has come back to me. It came to me last week when I realized the magazine two of my illustrations are in have the wrong information on them. One has my name and someone else’s web site. The other has someone else’s name and website.
Many years ago I was invited to be in an art show which would include an artist’s identification book. I sent in a photo of my art piece for the book. No one called me and asked me about my bio or other information. I was told there would be a call but when none came I called the curators. I was told the book had already been sent to the printer. When I got my copy the only page that was blank, except for the art, was mine.
This keeps happening; so much that I have begun to write and illustrate a story based on this. Maybe this is why I insist on being chief, cook and bottle washer when it comes to producing my work. Unfortunately you can’t control everything. Thus, the two samples above.
Oh well. Watcha gonna do? Sometimes it can’t be helped. It’s always something.
