I haven't been posting a lot on D.A., because I have been pretty busy
That all, however, has changed
Me and Blasted Space's co-creator, Josh Lequire, are both out of a job.
The company he worked at for 5 years and I worked at for almost 3 closed its doors, yesterday.
The owner, himself, flew-up from Vero Beach, FL, to give us the news. At 10-ish, yesterday morning, we were all informed that we no longer had a place to go, occupy ourselves and earn a living on Monday through Friday.
As much as I hate the idea of government assistance, I have to accept the fact that I live in a state where the economy is so poor that our population has been dropping and we no longer have a single city with a million people or over in the entire state. I have to accept the fact that I live in a state with such a poorly managed budget, in spite of its wealth of resources, that the Federal Government actually tried shutting the entire state down. So, I'm applying for unemployment and food stamps, Monday.
I also intend to start selling my body, well, donating plasma anyway. I'm also trying to enlist in clinical trials, while I look for a new job.
I am, however, also hoping that this works-out to be a blessing in disguise. I'm hoping I use this new heap of "free time" to not only look for a new job but to work more on my creative efforts, as well. Namely, Blasted Space!
And, well, let's get to the point here:
If I've got time to draw and write, I've got time to draw and write. So, I'm opening my doors for commissions.
If anybody wants me to draw anything - and I mean anything short of child porn and runes that will open a portal to another dimension - I'm down.
Prices will be reasonable and negotiable. I'm not going to do the bullshit where I say 8.5x11 are $20 and 11x17 are $50 and so on.
If I'm working on art, I should be happy to be getting paid at all. So, tell me what you'd like to see me do and we can talk about prices from there. As long as I'm not losing money by shipping this shit, I'm totally comfortable with you, yourselves, naming the price.
Thank you for your possible consideration of my paltry offer.
