and sometimes, she draws things

I haven’t been very productive lately on account of my hands being painful claws most of the time but I had to doodle some fanart for releasethebatsss's awesome little comic 'Big Dogs' because it’s great and Bunny is a cutie
if my hands are cooperative, I’m going to try to tighten this up a little and maybe keep going with it in the morning but it’s almost 2am and I should go to bed

so as many of you are already aware, I’m very sick. I have been since around november of last year, and I don’t have a diagnosis yet beyond ‘we’re 90% sure it’s autoimmune and you have an unidentified white mass in your brain’ but it’s only getting worse.

to make a long story short, my employer has me trapped in limbo where I can’t apply for any kind of state assistance yet because they technically haven’t fired me, but I’m not working and my insurance doesn’t cover anything.

so I’m stuck with rapidly increasing medical bills and no income.

(this is just the last like.. 2 or 3 weeks worth of mail? grand total I think I currently owe about 4-5k between the outstanding medical bills and the credit card I had to put some of the payments on because they refused to do some of my tests without at least partial payment up front)

which is where my awesome friend Dave comes in.

he’s been working on this EP for a couple of months now, and it’s finally ready and up for sale on iTunes (soon to also be on most other online marketplaces, at which point I’ll add those links as well). all the proceeds from the sales of these songs go directly to covering my medical expenses. plus, the music is pretty awesome. if you’re into experimental music or film scores this is going to be so up your alley it’s unreal.

so there are now three ways you can help me out, only one of which costs money!

  • you can buy the EP ($3)
  • you can give it a good rating on iTunes so that more people will see it
  • and you can signal boost the shit out of that link. it doesn’t have to be in the context of this post (I know it’s kind of a wall of text). send it around on whatever social media you like. 

UPDATE 6/12: if you want to contribute but don’t want to make a purchase, there is now a GoFundMe page

and of course those of you who follow my art blog know that I still have my RedBubble and Society6 stores where you can buy all kinds of fandom fun

and I’m taking a limited number of portrait commissions (because my energy levels and coordination are pretty off right now and I don’t want to commit to anything I can’t finish) via ArtCorgi

I’ve finally decided to open up commissions! School is starting and I need money for food and supplies;;

  1. I will draw both original characters and fanart - and nsfw material to some extent. I will not draw anthro or mecha. If I am uncomfortable with the commission request, I will let you know.
  2. Colored/uncolored sketches are also an option! They start at $8 for one character.
  3. Additional characters are +50% each. If you would like to add a background, or if you would like to commission something not listed here (like a tattoo design), please contact me to negotiate pricing.
  4. Any deadlines you have must be stated before I accept the commission.
  5. Payment via Paypal in USD after you approve of the rough sketch and colors. Larger commissions can be paid by installments. 
  6. The completed, original size commission file will be sent via email.
  7. 1-2 minor revisions can be made to the finished piece free of charge.
  8. You can do whatever you want with your commission except use it for commercial purposes.
  9. Prices may increase if the commission request is super complicated or calls for a lot of detailed work. 

You can see my commission status here. If you’re interested, please send me an ask or fanmail :)

Any signal boosts would be greatly appreciated! <3

GISHWHES was, as usual, a weird and wonderful experience this year

it has been WAAAY too long since I did any SPN art. gotta fix that!
I don&#8217;t draw anywhere near enough Dean, and I&#8217;ve never done Demon!Dean, so I figured I was overdue to take a crack at it
prints and more available in the s6 shop
hit a wall working on a paid project, took a break to do something fun and loosen up a little.
&#8230;and that&#8217;s how I ended up wasting two and a half hours doodling one of my favorite socially awkward nerd rockers.
got a bit of a shock while scrolling facebook yesterday and stumbled on my own art! I picked V and his stunning girlfriend as subjects for a quick warmup sketch yesterday that got a little out of control (I just wanted to draw fancy vampires sshhh) and posted it to twitter, then got straight to work on commission stuff and didn&#8217;t bother posting it on other social media.
fortunately, this charming fella took care of sharing to facebook for me, proper credit and all! I really need to be better about updating that facebook art page, though. especially since that was the link I posted in the comments instead of directing people here to tumblr.

just fucking draw. don’t compare yourself to other people, don’t stop because you drew a lot last tuesday and you haven’t visibly improved. it takes time, effort, and a lot of perseverance. besides, no matter how “bad” you think you are, there’s still gonna be someone who thinks the stuff you produce is the best goddamn thing they’ve ever seen in their entire life. the artist you were five years ago would have their mind fucking blown by the artist you are today. so just draw a fuckton, because every new thing you draw is one drawing better than you were before.

bringing out some embarrassing old art to back this point!

finally got to see How to Train Your Dragon 2
doodled Hiccup at 2am while listening to Babymetal
clearly I make adult life decisions

Reblog this if it’s OK if I do drawings of your Character and send them to you.

Sometimes I feel like drawing, but I don’t want to make you feel uncomfortable if it’s not your cup of tea.

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS
