This week I had a piece of art in a gallery show (this red and white one I did ages ago and then did nothing with), at the Royal College of Art no less. This made me feel like a real artist.
Alas though, it was a charity show and so quality control was irrelevant and I can't glean to much self-worth from being exhibited (though there were a lot of really strong pieces there). All the works were sold in a blind auction at the end, and mine went for "just under £100" but again, as it was for charity, this means nothing for my piece. Some nice person just gave a couple of pounds to the Prince's Trust and ended up taking home a free ikea frame.
