It is brought home to me again that I *really* need to adjust pricing and payout for EMG stuff. 24% goes to artists straight off of gross sales, which is certainly acceptable to me, but I don't have enough of a profit margin once you take off that and CC transfer fees. My tax numbers are not an entirely accurate representation, since my inventory is by cost and I got such sweet deals that it's worth *more* than it cost me and a LOT of capital went into inventory this year, but still... yeech. I made like $.01 an hour for all my EMG work (and then got taxed for that... bastards). Labor of love, baby... and a serious investment in the future, too. Hopefully all the little risks I've taken will catch up with me in a good way. Interesting to note that more than 80% of the sales occur in the second half of the year. If that holds true for this year, things will be *good*.
Had another portrait adopted today. :) Woot!
Part of me says: work on the webpage! Get more work up!
The rest of me says: this is the only day off you get all week! Go art!
The rest of me wins.
