WHOA LIFE, DAMN, SLOW THE FUCK DOWN.
Okay, here’s the low-down, tl;dr, desperate cry for financial help. Between a lot of personal problems and also going on a trip that has been planned way too far in advance to put on hold at the last second, I could really, really, REALLY use some help and I’m willing to work for it. My paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org and if you’d like to commission me, please message me and then send the payment through paypal. Donations are intensely appreciated and I really can’t thank you enough. Reblogs also help and I still can’t thank you enough for helping me get this message out there.
(**You don’t have to commission an entire comic to have a drawing done in my comic style. Other drawings can be done with a simple background or as a transparency at no extra cost. Specific backgrounds will have a fee, which can be discussed and would be anywhere between $5-$15. Let’s talk!)
Now the long part if you’re interested, explaining those little images up there from top to bottom:
Firstly, I have a very dear friend struggling with money. She had to move into a new place and the deposit and fees took out the money she had for groceries and medication. Although she wasn’t asking for help, I have expressed that I want to help her. I’ve already made sure that she’s gotten the money to help cover her medication but if I could throw her a portion of my earnings to help get her some noodles till her bank can recover, that would be great!
Second, my dad was the one who commissioned me and helped me support my friend. His birthday is coming up and I’d like to put some money aside to get him a gift. He’s paying an awful lot for the work I’m doing and I’d like to make it up to him.
Third, AUGHHHGJDSKGJFDG this is a huge source of stress for me. Long story short, because he shitty American education system and discrimination against mental illness, I owe $4,800 to a collection agency. Payments are going to have to be made in order to keep me out of civil court. If I can afford at least one payment within the next 30 days, I can avoid having to go to court and getting my bank/paypal accounts seized. Which would be, you know, cool.
Lastly, I’m going to Dashcon! This was planned months ago and everything’s been paid for. By my girlfriend. The only thing I was able to provide was a place to stay and it didn’t cost me anything because I have friends in Chicago. So that’s cool but I kinda don’t want my girlfriend to have to pay for my meals on top of my round-trip ticket and weekend badge and my cosplay and EVVERRRYTHING.
SO!! I’m starting this commission drive. My paypal, email@example.com, is open to donations, also. I’m going to be very careful with my earnings, dividing up each commission so that I can cover everything. I’ll bring my tablet with me on the trip but I have to be honest and warn that they might take a little while. I promise they will get done, though! And feel free to message me about updates if I owe you one. If I don’t answer, assume the message didn’t send; I will always reply!
Thank you so much.
