They are ads for those who want an ad. No doubt. But I am not calling them ads anymore. Sponsored links is ok. I realise that as they go they create a map. The first sketches sold will go to someone, somewhere. Hopefully the links will indicate a place on the globe? At least a place in cyberspace. As I post out prints I will have cities to post them to. I can map that. There will be a visual image of the distribution. So you could be an advertiser, or just love the picture, or, to put it quaintly, be a patron of the arts!
Audience participation. It creates a context for the images and prints. They will be part of a sociocorpus. Not only the map, the comments with each image will embody a flow of connection.
Just had the first comment come in now, from Bex, a quick response to the very Soft Launch.
