Recap of RAW: Columbus

Recap of RAW: Columbus

        On Tuesday, I participated in what will likely be my last show with RAW Artists. I have done four of them, and in the future I’ll write up a post about my thoughts on RAW overall- generally positive things. These shows have been a very positive experience for me, and I’m so glad I did them! This show was located in Columbus, Ohio, only about an hour away from where I currently live. For every show done in a home city, RAW offers its artists a complimentary show in another city. This show was one of two comp shows I had available this year; I used the other last month in Indianapolis. While Indianapolis was a very profitable show, I can’t say the same for Columbus, though it was still a mostly pleasant experience. I’ve gone 50/50 on shows with RAW being profitable. I did at least make back my expenses, so I didn’t lose anything by attending. It was very disappointing, though, I won’t lie. There are quite a few factors I think contributed to this show not being as successful as the last. First, and I think most importantly, this show was full of incredible artists. Don’t get me wrong, every show I’ve participated in has been full of really great artists. But this show in particular was very impressive. I felt really outclassed. Also notable was the fact that I was right across from another digital artist, which was actually a first for me at these shows. Not that they don’t bring in digital artists to RAW, because they definitely do, I just haven’t really...
