Adam Brackney may be the first to attempt an internet art/ commerce stunt of this scale and it is something to think about. Adam proposes to create One Million Doodles for One Dollar. Will he do it? Is it possible? He writes and mentions that he has already reached 2000 doodles shipped as of now despite the nay-sayers, booze consumption, and the creative meltdown he had at around 1500.
Doing the math could be sobering… not that I’m gonna do it because I don’t have the facts. But say this thing blows up and Adam gets enough orders pouring in so that he could do this full-time… Then he’s gotta figure out what the average creation time for each doodle is, his average daily output, and the amount that brings in minus his costs of operating and shipping these babies out… and then that is the profit to live on. Oh yeah don’t forget taxes! If there are G’s moving around the tax man cometh sooner or later! …. could it all add up?
Let’s say you can do 6 doodles an hour and you put in 50 hours a week. That’s 300 bucks/ doodles. Roughly extrapolate that to a year at 52 weeks– that’s 15,600 bucks/ doodles, before taxes and costs with no vacation. Then, all Adam has to do is keep up that pace for about 64 years and he should reach one million doodles! Awesome, that is dedication. Get you doodles today.
