AC Dickson eBay PowerSeller
eBay has been very good to me. For a few years I supported myself as an artist by selling antique postcards and hipster t-shirts on the site. At a certain point it dawned on my that my art should imitate my life. AC Dickson: eBay PowerSeller was a full-length show that was somewhere between performance art, power point sales seminar and stand-up comedy.

The show premiered at the 2004 PICA TBA festival. My co-performer and wife Susan and I were subsequently invited to perform the show at festivals and theaters in New York, Los Angeles and throughout Europe. Some folks at Wieden+Kennedy also saw it and hired me to create a character for Nike ID that went nowhere but paid handsomely. That’s more or less how I got into advertising.

DVD copies of the performance and my zine AC Dickson's Guide to eBay PowerSelling are available through Microcosm Publishing.
