Of those who read my journal, do you think it would be a good idea for me to have a commission-themed Inktober, or would that be yet another one of my stupid pipe dreams?

That Was a Bust, As Usual

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 22, 2014, 12:04 PM

Why am I so stupid as to think people would be willing to pay for my crappy art?  I should have my head examined.

Ground Rules Addendum

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 24, 2014, 12:41 PM

I don't block people for being clueless.  I do, however, block people who are ornery in their cluelessness, or who make it clear to me that they're not interested in picking up the clues and hints and explanations I give them.

Some Ground Rules

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 5, 2014, 9:42 AM

I don't block people nor hide their comments for asking forbidden questions, I don't even block people for being Creationists or adherents of Kosher or Halal.  I do, however, block people and hide their comments for being rude and or petulant assholes.

If someone wants to know something from me, all they need to do is to follow the sacred magic ritual George Lucas laid down for the various writers writing in the Star Wars extended Universe: "ask in a nice and or polite way, using the holy words 'please' and 'thank you.'"

Because Life is Expensive

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 30, 2013, 10:03 PM

Especially when you need to pay for another try at taking the State Acupuncture Board Test...

So, I had an idea this afternoon, where I would offer "sketchbook commission," in that I would have a potential customer go through my collection of lineart, and select 40 or so pieces, which I would then compile together and print as a personalized sketchbook.

So, what do you guys think?  Feasible at 30 dollars per book?

Back in Saint Olaf's

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 12, 2013, 7:43 PM

All creatures must learn to coexist!  Back where I come from, they do.  That's why the brown bear and the field mouse can share their lives and live in harmony!  'Course they can't mate, or the mice will explode.

I hope those of my friends, watchers and watched on the East Coast are safe after Hurricane Sandy's passing.

Expect some promotional art later this week.

On To Other Things

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 11, 2012, 10:17 PM

I've been so busy, I keep forgetting to put up a new journal to get rid of that depressing entry from April...

So, things that happened since last month: I've graduated from acupuncture school (though I still need to take the exit exam), got a new puppy, and I set up a tumblr account ...

Well, in 3 more days, it'll be my birthday.
