Well, first of all, I would finally like to introduce everyone to my new account made solely JUST for prints. As of right now there isn't anything new up there, just old pics form this account I really needed to get out in the world.
Look at it, watch it, love it, buy stuff from it? Just for anything i see WORTH selling I'm going to put up there instead of here. I'm still going to be putting up art down here, just not prints, the regular stuff.
I don't know if you've heard, but I have been sick for a very long time and it is hitting me harder and faster. It looks like I won't ever be able to work again, leave out of my wheelchair while I'm out in case I seize and hurt someone during a fall, or hurt myself. Art and my family are all I have left. My family isn't doing so hot. The children are cooping with it, yes. But with Scott being the only able body to work, and constantly needing to be home in order to make sure that I am safe we are REALLY REALLY poor. And just this past week I have had three major violent seizures. The Grand Mals as well as my partial epilepsy. We don't know what is setting them off, or why. We have our nuero's looking around the clock about them.
As for my art, most of you know I am a traditional art by heart. I LOVE to hold a pencil in my hands, use Copic multiliners and their markers, layering the colors, feeling how the picture should turn out, and I don't want to lose that. Drawing makes me happy, and strangely it makes my entire family happy. I think it only make's Scott (My lover) happy because he see's how much I love it and am still good at it. And the children want to be an artist just like their mommy. They always want me to show them my pictures, teach them to draw, and draw pictures for them for their b-days and Christmas. They also enjoy when I sew them something.
The thing is, I don't know how much longer I'm going to be here with the progression of my illness, or how much longer I am going to be able to draw with how shaky my hands have gotten. I'm really nervous about asking this of you guys.... Really nervous. So if you don't want to, don't, or if you can't I understand.
I would like to start a money pool. To buy my next 72 set of Copic markers.
On E-bay they are usually 300 (And I know that is a LOT of money). I have one set, Set 72B and some others that I have gotten here and there and I struggle to keep up with the liners and marker refills which I think I've been doing a decent job on. I don't know how to start a money pool for this, or if it'll even work out, but I would love to have a new set of markers with more shades I can explore with and further my art in. And for EVERY person who puts money into the cause I will make them a free commission art piece of their choosing, even if it doesn't make it to the amount needed. It will still go to helping to supply my artwork. I am hoping to get this set for Christmas.
I can do a TypeA: A piece where there is 1-5 characters of your choice (if OC's please note me specific details), with boarded background
TypeB: A piece where there 1-5 characters of your choice with a colored background
TypeC: Theme work. I can make characters in a theme, again please no more than five and if you have OC's, note me their details.
TypeD: Scenery. Lately I've been indulging myself in certain types of Scenery's that you will start to see in this account or my print one. It takes longer to make them, but I find it very relaxing and freeing all at once.
TypeE: Chibi's with boarders
TypeF: Animals and/or mythical creatures
TypeG: Love, boys/boys-girls/girls-boys/girls. If you can TRY to keep it PG-13 I don't necessarily mind drawing porn, but I'd much rather draw who ever you have in mind being sweet or playful or cute.
As with the free commissions, even though I am no fan of letting go of any original art, if you'd wish it, I will personally mail you the picture in its original condition to be matted and framed (Clearly I can't mat or frame it here cause I'm poor.)
- Watching: Bones-Horror-Family
- Playing: WoW and SWTOR
- Eating: Still mostly soft foods
- Drinking: Water, Powerade, mt. Dew
Have you ever thought about getting a seizure dog? It won't help you as far as work is concerned, but it would let you have a more normal life a spend time with you kids more. For some reason they can sense when you are going to have a seizure, so bark and help you get to the ground in a safe place before the seizure hits. They will even bark to make others aware to keep away from you while you are seizing. Its amazing what they can do for people.
Uhg I would love to get a seizure dog. We're getting ready to move into a house, but I just don't think that we could afford one. We have five cats one of our ferrets just passed, and a needy, needy lizard.
I'll be happy to give you any money I can afford to give if you can tell me how I can get it to you.
My bf is setting up a PO box thing, that way money orders can be mailed out to us, or cash, checks are really dangerous, and if they bounce I can get in trouble. There are also ways of buying e-Bay gift cards since what I am wanting to get is on e-Bay. But when that is set up, I will re-edit my journal so everybody knows.
Oh, I wish I could help you. I really do, but I'm not even allowed out of the house anymore.
I know Kacy -Hugs- Don't beat yourself up over it. I don't expect it'll actually go anywhere I'm just trying. -pets hair.-
