While I'm posting, I'd like to apologize to the board for the "erasing the sketch" thread. I had been warned repeatedly that this topic could not be discussed without it turning into a mess. With hubris, I thought we could be different. Alas, it was not to be.
At least people are able to make some jokes about it now--even if some of the jokes are a little passive-aggressive towards the other side.
I think there's more to explore in the artist/collector tug-of-war, but I really have zero confidence we can talk about it without it becoming ugly. Ideally, it would be great if the artists could have their little area to bitch about collectors and get that out of their system. Collectors could do the same to bitch about the artists. And then maybe we could come back together to have an adult conversation about this *business* and how to make it more beneficial for both sides.
Anyway, I don't have a blog, so there's my post-mortem about that "discussion".
