I wasn't planning on broadcasting this to dA, but circumstances have become a bit more serious, so I'm going to to it anyway.
My father passed away three weeks ago, leaving me and my mom on our own. With him gone, we've effectively lost over 1/3 of our monthly income, and as I'm currently unemployed since I had to take a Compassionate Care leave to help look at him in his final month, I'm looking for a way to make some extra money to help support us. I'm interviewing for jobs right now, but in the meantime, I'm going to open an unspecified number of commission slots. I'll be finishing my holiday commissions first, but if you like my art, I would really appreciate if you could take a commission. If you can't, it means just as much if you could just spread the word via journal, poll, tumblr, whatever you can. I'm also going to open a donation poll. I hate just asking people for money, but my options are unfortunately limited at the moment. Anyway, that's it. I'll post a link here to my commission prices.
Remember, even if you don't want a commission, if you could spread the word, I would really, really appreciate it.
