I've been resisting doing this, but present circumstances have made this necessary...
I AM OPEN FOR COMMISSION-A-THON CONTRIBUTIONS & ART REQUESTS!
For those who may have missed out on the last time I did this, or may need a refresher, the idea of a Commission-A-Thon is that I will be delivering artwork to any and all people who contribute to my Emergency Fund, the specific type of art to be determined by how much is sent. There are different tier levels, each with it's own reward, and it is up to you to choose how much you would like to contribute. Basically, if you're familiar with TV or radio telethons, you've got the general idea.
"Why are you doing a Commission-A-Thon? "
Many of you may know the last year had been rough on me. While I've been working to get back on track and keep myself a-float, within the last few months a combination of things (namely my part-time job cutting my hours in half, combined with the lower-than-usual commission numbers & making some attempt to split that art time with long-term, not-immediately-profitable projects like comics) has put me in a very tight situation.
Primarily though, it's because I was informed 2 days ago that I have until Nov. 15th. My housemate, whom I an currently renting 2 rooms from, will be moving out on that date and I won't be able to stay. While I was planning on moving as soon as I could, I didn't anticipate not being able to stay a little longer in case I wasn't able to find a new apartment in NYC. So this means I need not only my final rent for my current apartment, but starting on a new place (1st, last, & security, and possibly even extra fees) within a week. And that's not including moving expenses like renting a truck.
So, in a nutshell, if I want to continue to have a roof over my head, I need to be able to raise a fairly large chunk of money in a short time.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Simply send me a payment via PayPal, addressed to LizardbethArt@gmail.com. During check-out, there will be a comment box where you can write in which reward tier you would like. You can either include a link to any reference images & materials you may have in that box, or send it to me in a separate e-mail (just make sure to include the name on your PayPal account in any additional e-mails so I know to match it with your payment!)
I will be broadcasting live HERE during the entire commission-a-thon every day until my goal is reached, starting at 11am EST, so you can even come and watch me draw your piece for you. All artwork will be done 100% digitally, and in the end you will receive the high-resolution (300dpi) image sent to you via e-mail (I'll use your PayPal address by default, unless you specifically request that I use another one.)
