Oh boy oh boy, there is a whole bunch to talk about! Outside of it being Inktober (and the first time I’m trying to do the entire month, come hell or high water), there’s been a lot of changes in the last few months.
First and foremost: I am not in a great financial place right now, and between trying to hustle as many different jobs as I can, I am opening up a limited time window for deeply discounted commissions. The prices are as follows:
If you are interested in taking a hold of this offer while it’s up, make sure to send me a request via my contact page. Make sure to include descriptions or links to any ref images, if possible.
One of the other things I’ve been working on for a while and just recently was able to get back up and running was my personal Etsy store, PST!, for crafts, jewelry, and design. Right now my website is mainly oriented towards my illustration work, but my store is an offering of all the things that I may not photograph or show on here that I do on the side. This may end up changing in the future as I work to put more of a divide on the website from my Illustration work and my Design work as I take on more contract/freelance jobs, but for the moment most of the work I get is for illustrations. If it ends up being a shift in site layout, it will be a small one.
Lastly, my current store is run off of a site that only allows me 10 items unless I want to pay something like $200/year to up that limit to 100. This is the reason I don’t have much in my store currently: If I wanted to put in more, I have to pay a chunk of money to make it happen. However, because I don‘t have the kind of money to throw around for the current shopping-cart system, I am looking into a new, free alternative. I’ve already downloaded the new system and started working with it in the background, but it’s an entirely new thing and I’ll have to move all of my items over to it from the old system, so it’s going to be a little bit before I have it up.
Have a great October, and thank you again to everyone who supports me through commissions or my patreon page!
