I just got back from Pearl Art. I have a 3'10" receipt and the stuff to match.

I would have spent $750 after tax, but they're having a 75% off sale, so I only spent $209. The line wound around the whole ground floor of the store and took an hour and a half to get through. I think saving $540 is worth an hour and a half of my life.

What did I save all this money on? A handful of black markers, some brushes, some canvas... and a huge pile of mid-range acrylic paints. Not the cheapest, not the priciest.

If anyone has suggestions on acrylic process I would be quite happy to hear them! I've played with them in school and liked them but haven't done much since. I dunno what I'll do but hey, I have some cons coming up, maybe there'll be some crazy stuff worth hanging.

Out of curiosity, I asked the guy ringing me up (who turned out to be a furry, I gave him my cards since he asked for fan name) if they were getting overtime for this hectic work - nope - and how far ahead they knew - the middle of last week, when the sale started. Yay for corporate love!

for those of you in Boston still circling the corpse: Sketchbooks/paper pads are denuded, nothing but some figure-drawing sized pads left. Paint is probably going to be gone by the end of today. Brushes are mostly covered and already sold in bulk. There's a ton of oil medium/turpentine/whatnot left. Markers seem surprisingly rich - maybe because a lot of them are buy-one-get-one-free instead of normal store discount. Pens are goooone. Lots of big chunks of board. Still some easels. Art bins are completely gone.
