Another letter from a fried of this blog:
I'm a Vancouver artist living these past months in Europe (not bad at all!). I wanted to alert you and your many readers about this scam I just experienced. Like most cons, it taps into the typical vulnerabilities of the target group, in this case artists: we're eager for others to see our work, to get excited by it, and even perchance to buy it! We're generous in sharing our work and information about ourselves (internet), but not often savvy enough in the business end, as especially you well know. In any case, I hope you'll be able to check this out on a blog I just started from Italy. And I hope you like the blog.
