let's talk about something i like to call "bribery".
so, the art school where i teach is having a fundraiser called "dancing with the reading (PA) stars". and they have an extremely loose definition of "star", because one of those dancers will be me.
here's how it works: you go to this site and click the vote box next to the picture me and my wife. it costs $5 per vote.
now perk up, laddies, here's where the bribery part comes in: anyone who votes 8 or more times for me will get an original drawing. (limited to the first 10 people, i think. also, these aren't commissions. i think of something cool to send you, and i send it.)
now, a cynical person will say that sounds an awful lot like cheating. and as always, that cynical person would be 100% correct.
remember: i don't get anything for winning. except for the pleasure of beating out a bunch of decent and deserving people who have worked harder than me. and isn't that what it's really all about? but more importantly, this awesome little art school gets a hand with their community art programs.
so if you're up for a little vote-rigging (and if you are reading this, who are we fooling?), then vote and send me the paypal reciept (and your address) and i'll send something loverly your way.
ps - what the hell, computer? you think "loverly" is an acceptable word? you are dead. to. me.
