So summer is here and I don't have a job lined up because I wanted to spend more time on my art-making. That's cool and all but I still need to make money so guess what?

Commission time! And I have plenty of items in my gallery to sell. What am I selling exactly?

I do spiffy graphite portraits as seen here:
I would need a photo reference. Price would depend on the size but between $10-$40.

I have a lot of photo prints to sell. Generally 8x10" glossy or matte for $6-$8.

If there's anything else that you see in my gallery that you like just message me!

Want your character drawn? I do that too!

Please support your starving college artists!

Just so everyone is in the know, I'm taking a photography class this semester. Which means a lot of what is uploaded here will be digital photographs. I'm gonna try to do other mediums but we'll see how that goes.

And I just checked my stats for most favorited and all that and do you know which deviantion of mine has the most views? Alice's Encounter With Time! Over 1,000 views! Who is reading this? Why is it so popular? I'm in shock really.

So I'm not going to California over break. Too expensive. But I do need a job over break because the one I have closes for winter break. So I'm still offering to do COMMISSIONS!!!

What was I offering in the last post?

PORTRAITS!! I love doing portraits and I'm pretty good at it too.

I'll draw your character!!

I have prints in my gallery I'll sell if you like them.

I also have these cat tails that I made out of yarn that I'm trying to get rid of. They're pretty cool. I'll have to take a picture of them. PRICE: $5-$10 depending on the type of yarn I used.

In December I plan on taking a trip with my friend to California and we're probably going to stay there for a week. Well, I need to make some money for the trip because I don't want to use up all of my financial aid money. And I don't make enough at work.

So, I'll do commissions for a reasonable price. I do portraits really well!… <- example

If there's something in my gallery that you'd like to purchase just note me. I have plenty of photos and prints. I also have some paintings.

I'll draw your character!

I can also knit and crochet you a scarf for those colder months coming up.

So, I don't know who hit the 3,000 page view and I guess they didn't care. I hit the 3,001. So does that mean that I get to give myself a free picture?

Well, now I free crappy.

My 3k pageview that is. So close! I know SOMEONE out there wants some free art from me.

If you hit the 3k pageview just note me and if you can screencap it I'd like to see that too. So, just let me know what you would like- be it something new or something from my gallery and I'll be happy to oblige.

More about other things later.

So I'm getting really close to my 3K mark and I'm kinda excited. I know that 3k isn't that big a deal (especially since I've been on here for two years) but hey. I'm excited. So I don't know if anyone else cares but if you do and you catch my 3k page view you can request something from me. :)

Some other stuff:

I feel like doing a couple of commissions before school starts. Yes, I'll do fan art. I'm not going to set prices or anything now. If you want me to draw you something send me a note and I'll tell you how much it'll cost and how long it'll take.

I also want to sell some of the art that has been lying around my room. I'll have to make another post about that later but it's just some stuff from my gallery. Mostly photos and maybe some other things. If you're curious let me know!

So I found a hord of cat tails that I made of yarn some time ago. They're just sitting around and I meant to sell them at a con but never got around to it. If anyone wants a cat tail made of really soft yarn you should let me now!!

Taken from :icondreamingwhileawake:'s journal because I totally agree with her! I think everyone should live like this.

"When is the last time you've found beauty? In yourself or in the world? When is the last time you played outside? Took a bubble bath? Used just candles as light? Meditated? Drew or wrote something just for you? When is the last time that you breathed? Have you looked at the sky lately and imagined beyond the clouds? When is the last time you let yourself dream beyond the constrains of reality? Believed you could do absolutely anything without a shadow of doubt? When is the last time that you danced? When is the last time that you played pretend or had an adventure? Visited a playground? Listened to your favorite song and sung along just as loud as you could? Truly loved yourself?

These are things you have to fight to hold onto. Don't let darkness and fear take them away. Don't worry over stupid trivial bullshit, negative emotions, the problems in your life. Laugh them all off. All bad things must pass, but now you must keep your spirit. Sometimes hopes and dreams are the only thing left, but it is the most precious thing to have. If you perceive and look for happiness in every day, then you will bear your sadness and come out with a smile. If you reach for the moon, even if you do fall short, you WILL find yourself among the stars.

This is not the prettiest essay I have ever written (it's pretty stream of consciousness and damned sloppy, if you ask me), but I hope that you all take something from it. A lot of you have been terribly stressed and going through bad things lately. So have I. I'd almost forgotten the little stupid things I'd loved about life, the little things that gave me strength. So this is to remind all of us not to forget the beauty of it and not waste time over the obstacles in it that we cannot change. Remember that I truly love every one of you, even if we don't always agree over everything."

So, you see that very creepy picture that I just submited? I brought it into class for a little critique and there's one guy that was like, "I want to buy that". And I just thought he was kidding. No one's ever bought my stuff (that I can remember). But then I saw him talking to the teacher and he was asking when he would be able to have the picture.

So . . . YAY!!! Someone's gonna buy my art!! I'm excited!

Happy Holidays everyone!

The semester's finally over and I scrapped through my painting class with a C. I think she did it out of pity though since I'm not a painting major and I need the credit for art ed. Next semester it's 2D which I'm still not sure what that means. But I'll let you know when I find out.

I went through some stuff that was sitting around on my computer and posted it if you couldn't tell. I hope you like it!

So, yeah, I'm alive and enjoying my break. Hope you are too!

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.

I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.

I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.

I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.

I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.

I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.

I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to always deal with society hating me.

I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.

I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most: love.

Repost this if you think homophobia is wrong.

Oh, art . . .

Now that the new semester has started there's a good chance that my art style is going to shift. I think I said that last time . . . but I don't know if that happened.

My only art class is Painting and we'll be doing oils so guess what! You'll be seeing oil paintings. My other class where I might be making art is my Technology in Art Ed. I don't know if anything good will come of that class.

So, the um charger for my computer is not working. Which means my laptop is dead. Which means all work for selling things at AMA has been suspended. Which is great, really, since it's in less than a week and I only have access to what I have put in my gallery. I'm going to hand my laptop over to a family friend to see if he can help me but I don't know how long that will take. YAY!!! So, I'm kinda stuck and it sucks.

I'm also quite broke. I have to keep taking money out of my savings account to pay for gas to get to and from work. And then I'll have to take money out for laminating the stuff I'm going to sell since it doesn't look like shrinky-dinks is working. And I'm going to have to pay the guy to fix my computer but thankfully my step-dad and cover that for now and I'll just be paying him back later.

The only thing I have to look forward to is hanging out with my friends at AMA and getting my first paycheck that weekend also. Ignoring the fact that I have to spend money on gas to go to and from and the fact that I'm putting half my check in my savings to make up for all the money I've taken out.

I'm gonna stop complaining now . . . Can't wait to see everyone at AMA!
