Can't help feeling a little obsolete with these new BBW artists out there also doing quality work, but come from the generation who were raised on digital graphic making and can spruce up something easier.  More pro looking.  
Oh well, i still have my style, but i see others eclipsing even that.  
Oh well, i believe i helped pave the way for all the quality BBW artists out there.  Coop and Les Toil were there, too - more commercially successful.
Only because i have no clue how to even begin selling my work properly.  
I need an agent, or something.  I need a motivator, someone who can get the annoying details over with so i can get to creating and making actual money.  
I don't have much self motivation, i don't have the desperate need to draw like i used to.  

If i had more local models available and scheduled to draw, this would change.   

But i have a huge backlog of work after 17 years.  I've gotta be able to do something with that... but how?
I want to make a book... who do i pitch this to?  How do i start the process?  I am very green when it comes to this kinda stuff.
I am happy there are more artists doing what i do, kinda sad i'm not a main character anymore, but i don't need to be.  My work was always for public use, share, print, hang the work in your offices or whatever.  If i can make money selling something, awesome, but i really just want the message to get through...

But i can't be doing service jobs for the rest of my life, either...

I am also on a facebook hiatus.  Minimal to zero checking it.  So, if you are someone who knows my number or my email, give me a shout.  I am off the next 2 days.  Or just ask for it.  I may still check dA because part of this hiatus is to do more creating.  I hope to have some work up, unless i get swooped up on someone's adventure...
Anything interesting or sexy happening in Vancouver right now?  haha!

Going off of Vanilla's comment above, you don't even necessarily need a print-on-demand service. Think of a way to present your material in a buyable package (scan at high rez at touch up to get some nice prints that you can get your local print shop to dash off, do a sampler book the old, old fashioned way with a copy shop and a stapler), then seek out a small convention or art fair or anything of the sort where a table won't cost you an arm and a leg. I've made some great connections selling prints and stickers at tiny local cons, and a lot of the stuff I sell (not on the account I'm sending this from) still has traditional-art roots--in fact, all of my most popular posters are/were traditional pieces with just a little touch-up, so you needn't worry too much on the digital art front.

I'd be happy to help you in any way I can. I'm currently working on going full time with my artwork and it's very challenging and stressful. 

Maybe you should try a new medium, like water color or something like that. I always feel like pushing myself to try something new can really make me step up my game. 
Also, feel free to friend me on facebook. www.facebook.com/SamiF.7?ref=t…

This is the age of DIY! You could do a POD (print-on-demand) book of your art. Perhaps see what come of the artists on DA are using for their print work... You don't have to do a Kickstarter project for thousands of dollars to get started with a limited-edition book of drawings, just to test the waters and see how it goes.
