Recently I decided to uphold the integrity of Caveofpixels.com, and not bow to corporate sponsorship. I received an unsolicited email from a company who wanted to buy advertising space on my site. “Intriguing”, thought my industrious brain, which would have smiled an evil smile, had it been capable. Money for nothing? Sign me up! So I read on… and the company they wanted to advertise were specialists in… wait for it… novelty shotglasses. Consider me gutted. There I was, hoping Capcom or Sega had read my blog or seen my artwork, and wanted a slice of the pixel pie, when it was really just a random company with not even the smallest thematic link to my site. So I politely declined, for the good of the site, not my wallet. And I didn’t even ask how much they’d pay!
So I remain a broke artist, all in the name of not selling out and cheapening my brand. Until Nintendo calls, anyway!!
This week I’ve been getting to work on my Back To The Future collection. These will all be for sale, with all proceeds going to my Beads For Parkinson’s charity fundraiser. Here are the latest pieces:
When these are finished and framed, they'll bring the count up to 5, so then I might start allocating prices and putting them up for sale. So far it's been all Back To The Future Part 2, but don't worry, there will be more from the other films added soon!
My name is Iain and my addiction is making pixel bead art. My main inspirations are comics, video games and movies.
