Rules for how to use my stock

I am experiencing "death by success"

...Right now I have 615 notes in my in-box here. If I were to go someplace with high speed internet and sit there for 3 solid days, I could probably clear my in-box. By the time I'm done typing this, I'll probably be at 620 notes. And, because I don't respond fast enough, some of you (it's OK, I'm not complaining) note me over at my art account, or Email me directly.

I don't know what to do. :( I've removed the "please note me" part of my "how to use my stock" and I gave up long ago and stopped following the tags on my top page.

Anyhow, something's got to break. I can't make reviewing art-works my full time job and I don't want to stop posting stock. Besides, I'm at critical mass in that department - even if I stop posting stock, I'll still get buried. I love seeing all the stuff you guys are creating. But it's scary the way my in-box keeps filling every time I load my page...

Love you all,
  • Mood: Affection
  • Listening to: Pink Floyd: The Wall
  • Reading: When it all clicks
  • Watching: My computer; duh.
  • Eating: coffee
  • Drinking: coffee

Hi Marcus, i realy like your art and you are doing a great favor for us putting some of your photos as stock. I have seen some side by side 3d photos on your art account. I was wondering if you could do some stock photo series with this side by side 3d technique. I'm tryin to train myself but its like impossible to find a live model where i live. And 3d photo references are my best bet. I dont know how hard it is, but i would be very happy if you can do something like that. Also i will be willing to pay for 3d photosets. Thanks for your great work.
