Update: Wow the response has been phenomenal! This blog post has had 724 views since posted on Oct 4, and I've received 16 gorgeous donations. What a treat! I've also received so many kind words and support from friends, family, and strangers in the ME/CFS community. What a brilliant birthday this has been, thank you everybody!!!! More sketches to come!!
Thursday, October 11 is my 28th Birthday. This year I have a special wish that I hope you will help me grant. I explain in this video =D
You will be helping me pay off medical and living expenses I've been slowly paying off as I can over the last two years, accrued as I have been doing my very best to get healthy and work despite extremely debilitating ME/CFS. Everyone who donates to help me kickstart my life will get a thank you doodle.
If you choose to order a piece of custom artwork (through my website) please note that return times will be variable. I have been extremely blessed with my freelance career and often times have more work than I am able to complete in a timely manner due to my health limitations. My lack of income has enormously more to do with the time I am able to spend working than it is about the work I am able to get. Having said that, I absolutely love doing small commission pieces and really look forward to working on yours. All work will be submitted to you digitally, and of course you may print in any way you choose. See a sample of some different options here or email me for a custom price.
