NEED TO COMPILE A LIST OF PAINTERS FOR WORK- Always updating cities!

Post by Miss Ronnie on Mon Mar 31, 2014 4:25 pm

Hey USA Painters!   I'm looking to put a list together of experienced and fast painters who would be willing to work the dinosaur show if it comes to your area.  I realize the dinosaur show has gotten a bad rap here on the forum at times and on other forums as well.  Let me explain a few things:

1)  The dino show is not for everyone.  It's long, hard hours with a never-ending line of customers - many of whom complain about either the wait or the price... or both.

2)  The rate of pay is not comparable to what you more than likely charge for private events in your area. With that being said, if you have gigs lined up on the dates the dino show is in town you should probably not cancel them!  However, if you have nothing on the books, then this event is a freebie for you... if you think you can handle it.  There is no cost to you (so no vendor fees), nothing to set up or worry about if the weather is going to ruin your stuff,and a guaranteed attendance.  All you have to worry about is bringing the essentials of your kit needed to create the pre-set designs the show offers.  You can place your tip jar out and, believe me, you WILL get lots of tips (unless you live in a super cheapskate tipping area!) and you can pass out business cards and promote yourself as much as you want.  

3)  There are 3 different touring companies with the show I'm affiliated with, and each is in a different city in the continental U.S. every single weekend, except for holidays.   The key to making money with this show is speed, speed, speed - without compromising quality.  

I have been having the time of my life with this show.  I'm feeding my gypsy soul, which loves to travel and explore, and making plenty of money.  Sometimes I stay at friend's or family's houses, sometimes at other painty friends's houses, sometimes at hotels - and even a few times have slept on a cot in the back of my van.  I love working the shows and actually experience of bit of withdrawals when I am not scheduled for one!

If you are interested in being considered, please let me know.  The list of cities is constantly being added to.  Right now there are tentative shows coming up in May for the following cities:

Denver, CO
Cedar Rapids,IA
Tuscon, AZ
Minot, ND
Odessa, TX
Fargo, ND

If you have any questions, fire away.  Also, if needed, I can put you in contact with other painters who have successfully participated in these shows with me!

Curious about why they don't make it to New York/Long Island? Very Happy Question

So the only money you get to keep are the tips? or there an hourly wage also?

No hourly wage... pay is determined by a percentage of the tickets you collect for each face you paint. And your tips are your own - no pooling your tips.

Hi Robbie,
I am definitely interested and live in a suburb of Buffalo, NY.and could do surrounding areas.
This opportunity sounds like loads of fun. I have worked at an October festival for years here that gets thousands of kids and adults every Weekend! Speed is pretty much mandatory, so I am accustomed to it. I'll forward you my email address in case you're interested.
Thanks,
Linda

linsfaces welcome to the forum! Please check out the introductions area, and don't forget to fill out your profile with some links to your work, and with your location so other painters can easily see where in the world you are by and glance. This way they can more easily invite you to class's and jams in your area!

P.S. Pro Tip: Check the date of the thread up at the top under the first post to see when it was created and check the date at the bottom to see when the last comment was. Seems this thread was created in the spring of last year, and died during summer last year. So the information might be out of date.
