So I mentioned a couple months back that there would be a point in which I would have to start doing commissions and well, that point is now.
For those of you that don’t know, my dad died suddenly in late September of last year and while my extended family covered the major costs like the funeral, and the bills from our solicitor, me and my two older brothers have been struggling to get by. Things like food, electricity and gas bills, council and tv tax and a million other bills are really hard to meet when my oldest brother hardly goes to work and myself and my one year older brother are in full time education.
So far we’ve just about got by but now were are pretty much out of money for the next month or two meaning we will very quickly run out of food. There aren’t any jobs that I could apply for at the moment so I figured that this the only I could make enough money to stretch over that month/2 month period.
I worked out that £500 would just about cover food expenses and some electricity assuming I keep a spending budget of £60 a week.
Obviously, I would have to take an impossibly large amount of commissions to meet this which I just haven’t got the time to do but something is better than nothing.
So please, if you want to help but don’t want to commission me here’s a couple things you can do:
Reblog! reblogs will at least get this going around so it can reach as much people as possible and increase my chances of finding someone willing to commission me.
Donate! You can donate any amount you want to my Paypal account (ask and I’ll give you the details). Seriously, if even just half of my followers donated 50p ($0.84), I would not only reach my target, but exceed it by almost £100
If you do this, I will be extremely grateful to you. I’m not sure how to reward you if you don’t want my art but I will at the very least follow you forever on tumblr and give you a personalised shout out!
Contact me for commissions either leaving an ask on tumblr or via email: email@example.com
Thank you for reading! and sorry for taking up a lot of space on your dashboard…
