Zero Sum #13 in the works

Well, #13 is coming right along. If you scroll down the blog a bit, you'll notice that this is a close relative of #11 and #12 - the monkey skull is still having its moment in the spotlight. But there's one major change - #13 incorporates intaglio. The sale of #12 produced quite a little windfall in the Zero Sum accounts - $200 - and most of that went to paying for time at the etching studio at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. So for the foreseeable future I'll have access to all kinds of nasty chemicals to make etchings. Of course, editioning prints will add another layer of complexity to pricing the ZSAP artworks, but this is all about seeing how convoluted things can become while following a few simple rules. That and seeing how much odd junk I can fit into my studio. The cheesy plastic astronauts are new. . .

And as far as the ZSAP accounts go, I'm happy to report that the current balance is 46 cents - just about perfect.

Zero Sum #12

Here's Zero Sum #12 - you can see a larger image and find out why the bidding starts at $9.34 by visiting the Zero Sum #12 auction on ebay.

If you wanted to wander through a little Zero Sum history, you might note that the monkey skull and drawing mannequin were purchased with proceeds from the sale of Zero Sum #8, the NASA postcards arrived after Zero Sum #10, and the postage due stamps that provide the countdown were purchased with Zero Sum #6 money. The paint and paper has been kicking around the studio since Zero Sum #3.

I just recently won a lot of vintage glass taxidermy eyeballs with the proceeds from the sale of Zero Sum #11. I can't wait to get my hands on them. I'm guessing that somewhere down the line the Zero Sum Art Project is going to have to head in the direction of sculpture. . .
