2013 is now here and time to get busy!
We have alot to do to get ready for our move to Michigan.
A lot of stuff I have no clue on how to arrange, but such is life. We
need to rent a moving van for all of our stuff, an RV to move us across
the country(My wife is unable to travel by car,plane or train,so we have
to rent an RV to accommodate her needs for the trip.),balance
everyone's schedule to get it all done in and,of course,box everything
up for the move. I'm not looking forward to all this, but I am excited
about being back in a civilized world amongst friends and family and the
hopes of getting things going so that my wife & I can get some
decent healthcare. We need to get fixed up, so that we can move forward.
I hate being stagnant. It's driving me insane.
BUT, thanks to everyone that has commissioned me for artwork over the last few months, not only has it helped immensely for our moving fund, but it has kept me busy and from being stagnant artistically.
want everyone to know how important this has been for us and how much
we appreciate all that everyone has done to help us. During this tough
time, knowing people really do care and want and have helped, makes it
so much easier to deal with. It's still mighty hard, but you have given
us that extra kick in the pants we all need to keep plugging on.
course, we still have a ways to go. So, I am still available for
commissions at a reduced rate til we move and beyond, so if you are
still interested in purchasing artwork, commissions or donations to the "Get Us To Michigan So That We Can Get Some Healthcare" fund, feel free to contact me at http://email@example.com or instant message me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Ragzdandelion . I will continue to have artwork deals posted here & on my Facebook. Also, feel free to visit my DeviantArt
page, where I have post of my artwork in case you are interested in
buying any originals or prints(some original pieces may not be
available,contact me if you are interested and I will let you know) at http://ragzdandelion.deviantart.com/ .
I also have copies of my artbook- PUNCHING A HOLE IN REALITY WITH MY PENCIL- available for $10, where I will include a personalized sketch on the last page of for you.
if anyone has any information about the best deals, or suggestions for
good moving companies, RV Rentals and other such ideas, satisfied
experiences, etc.,we would appreciate that also.
Feel free to contact me at http://firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions, suggestions, comments and just to say "Hi" if ya wanna. We cannot do this without you!!
of my main concerns about doing this is my fear of driving fans,
readers, friends, possible employers, etc away by posting these requests
for help. I know it can be a downer, and even irritating to read every
week or so, so I try to keep it at a minimum. Most of the responses we
have been given have been positive, but, alas, this is the internet, so
once in awhile we do get negative junk, or suspicious remarks. But, I
try not to pummel my readers over the head with this fundraising thing,
but, I also have to let everyone know the our status and that we still
need help. So, please, hang in there with us, it's not an easy journey. I
try to throw in alot of other stuff that I hope you find entertaining
and interesting. One thing that's most frustrating about being an
struggling artist is when we don't get any feedback at all. It's the
same with any creative person. It's good to know when what we create has
struck a nerve in someone, whether it is positive or negative.
Constructive criticism is very important for growth. And, it's also
interesting to see how other perceive one's work.
jabberin'. Time to show off some of the latest commissions I have done
for people that have helped us out in this moving fund thingy. Again,
THANK YOU so much for everything! Let's get it on!
