Its been some time since I'd updated, posted, uploaded, given blood, etc...

BUT!  Its with good reason... LIFE!  Its happens or whatever.  Therefore, now that most of my hurtles have dissipated (and there has been quite a few to be honest), I have crawled out of my dark place to make my return from a fake internet death.  That's right I'm still painting, still drawing, still brainstorming, still making electronic music, critiquing, and participating in art exhibitions (even hosting some of my own).  Did I mention that I also run a small art space and sell art supplies as well?

So... SO WHAT?!  Well I'm here to inform my avid DE friends and followers of a few epic changes.  Perhaps you can help in my transition into a new online presence.  I'd greatly appreciate any assistance I can get, and will love you forever-ever if you do:

1 - My DE portfolio will no longer be updated with new artwork.  Why?  Well glad you asked.  As my new paintings, drawings, studies, etc will now be available to view on my new, more minimal, more chic site located HERE
This is due to a need for a more professional fine art page.  One that gets away from the over-saturated fan art, grandma paintings, distasteful photography, and juvenile THINGS that DE has become. 

I'm expanding my clientele, setting up shop, updating my concepts, and beginning (finally) to shop my work around the web to bigger names and bigger agencies.  I'm looking for gallery representation.  I'm looking to get into a few big-name contemporary art magazines.  I'm looking to get seriously SEOed!

2 - Speaking of setting up shop.  I literally run a retail art supply store and will now run an online art shop(s) for my artwork as well.  Starting with Etsy.  See what's in my shop at the moment by visiting HERE
Visitors will be able to buy prints of my finished works there.  If you can't find what you're looking for.  Please send me an email!

3 - I will no longer hide behind a clever/foolish alias to post my artwork.  It may have seemed like a good idea initially about 8 years ago when I first heard about sites like DE and Redbubble.  However, what I've found is that I've ended up creating hurdles for myself by competing with my own roots when trying to SEO artwork under my actual name.  So, for now... ZombAug will be banished into handle purgatory.  I won't hide behind an experiment any longer.  Its just Augustine Cordero dude.

4 - I have an instagram with a foolish name (temporarily):  DookieMcFartSniffle or click HERE It will include more than just artwork.  But, also it will include cats, food, and games of a contemporary nerd... me.

5 - The part where I need your help... I need to create back links, pings, and other SEO-related processes to help promote my new online presence.  You can simply click on the links in this post to my new online portfolio; or better yet, post a link to it.  In turn, I will do the same for you. 

That's it.  Farewell DE friends and followers. 
Thanks for the Favs and thanks for the confidence boost to keep working.

- Sincerely,
Augustine Cordero

So fall is officially here, and I'm happy to say that I've been busy with tons of fun projects.  This month I'll be showing at two galleries and submitting proposals in hopes of receiving some grant money.  On another note, I got a hold of an overhead projector with a handful of transparencies... muhoo-ha!

Hello comrades.  I know I know, its been quite some time since my last update.  But, I finally got together my most recent paintings for your enjoyment.  Lately, decompressing is all that I've been able to do... I'm still trying to keep my head above water but things are looking better.  We'll see.  I've got one last set of illustrations I've got to get out there, and then I'll be pretty much caught up.  Then I can really sit down and focus on the current projects at hand.



Big THANK YOU to all who have visited my page, and left comments.
