I lost my job today, for... for reasons that are so laughably stupid that I'm still WTFing about it 8 hours later.

Silver lining: I can focus on art and commissions again... in the meantime, if you or someone you know is looking to hire an artsy fartsy type, my email is adrimakesart@gmail.com! I do character art and design, illustration, inking, coloring, flatting, pixel work, among other things.

I also have a ko-fi account so if you want to take pity on me and buy me a "Sorry You Lost Your Job" coffee, I wouldn't object lol

Thanks for all the birthday wishes; sorry I haven't been around to reply to them all - this month hasn't been great for me, productivity-wise. I blame Monster Hunter. And my unchecked ADHD symptoms.

Gonna try and get back into drawing and posting stuff soon.

In light of Patreon’s… unfortunate new pay-per-pledge structure, I’ve deactivated my Patreon account. As it is right now, I wasn’t making nearly enough per month to justify this new practice. What good is an extra 6% or whatever% on my payout when the majority of my supporters–those who contribute an average of $1 to $3–are being nickled and dimed out of their pledges? It makes no sense.

So, in the meantime, I’m using Ko-fi as a means of support. You don’t have to contribute a lot–you don’t even have to contribute monthly–but every little bit helps. Between this Patreon nonsense and getting stiffed on payment from a freelance gig I did three months ago, I’m gonna be kind of tight on funds going into December. Click on the image above or the link below to go to my Ko-fi page–it’s immediate and there are no fees!

I want to extend a huge thank you and a sincere apology to everyone who has contributed to my Patreon over the last two years. It’s been rough, and I’m bummed that it’s turned out this way, but you gave me the means and a reason to keep on doing what I do. ♥

Here’s to (hopefully) more art in 2018.

Good news! I'm finally getting to a point where i can start taking commissions regularly again, so I'm gonna be reopen for new commission slots starting on January 20th!

Check out my weebly page for details on what sorts of commissions you can get (I'll gradually be adding more as time goes on), and details on pricing.

Additionally, if you're a Patreon backer, you can get dibs on commission slots, as well as special discounts!

A few people were asking about them, so I wanted to make a public post that both the original and shiny versions of my "Dragon Eater" Sylveon t-shirts are back, this time on TeePublic!

www.teepublic.com/user/adrioft…

As of now, both designs are available for $20, but TeePublic also regularly has sales where shirts are $14.
I'm slowly trying to ween myself off of RedBubble because RedBubble is hot garbage when it comes to making commission on my sales. (TeePub, start selling stickers, already!)

If you enjoy and value my art, please consider supporting me!

Patreon / Ko-fi / RedBubble

Doing art is my only source of income right now, so every little bit helps! I appreciate all of the support so far, and I would like to continue focusing on making more art in the future.

Thank you!

I opened up a Trello board to keep track of my commissions, and so far it’s worked out a lot better than Google Drive has in the two years I’ve used it. haha

If you got a commission and are curious about its status, keep an eye open on the link below to get real-time updates on your piece.

trello.com/b/COvo7khI

And, as always, if you have inquiries relating to your commission or to commissions in general, please email me at adrimakesart@gmail.com

Also: I will NOT answer messages/fanmail/DMs/notes relating to commission work from ANY platform (Tumblr, Twitter, DA, Facebook, etc.). These kinds of messages are very hard for me to keep track of, so the email address above is the best way to get in touch with me.

Thanks!

Hey, everyone; I recently set up a GoFundMe page to help recoup from my cat Switch's recent veterinary bills. We had to admit her to the local animal hospital a couple of weeks ago, where she was diagnosed with near kidney failure. The combined cost of the hospital stay, tests, treatments, and specialty foods have totaled close to $2000. (Which is a pretty heavy blow to the wallet when you work part time, like I do.)

Anyway, here's a link to the page! Even if you can't donate, any signal boosting will be appreciated. :)

Sorry for the lapse in posts on here again. I've been trying to keep up with uploading work on here, but I've been spending most of my time on twitter lately because tumblr is starting to piss me off and I can't bear to be on it for more than an hour.

Been trying to get back into drawing more, doing more traditional stuff; playing Undertale has helped considerably. (Seriously, if you haven't played Undertale, do yourself a solid and go do that www.undertale.com ) I have a lot of fanart accumulated but it's all mostly sketches so I'll be utilizing my scraps folder for those probably

apart from that things are the same as they always are
struggling to get back into the capsized canoe that is my motivation

I've been getting a lot of notes on DA recently about doing commissions or otherwise making art/graphics for people. While I appreciate the interest, I am not currently open for doing new commissions and probably won't be for a while. The reason being that I'm already swamped with a backlog of commission work on top of working a day job that is both physically and mentally exhausting. It sucks, but, you know... gotta pay rent and bills and such.

Since I'm more or less not active on DeviantART, it's safe to say that notes regarding commission inquiries and/or requests (which I do not take nor do I plan on ever taking so please stop asking) usually end up going unseen for days or even weeks at a time. I do have a designated email for such things, so if you're interested in me possibly doing some commission/freelance work for you in the future, then please email me at adrimakesart@gmail.com

I pretty much always have my email client open at all times, even when I'm away from my computer, so you're much more likely to get a response that way, rather than sending me notes through DA or Tumblr or wherever. Even though I'm not currently open for commissions, I still will field questions about prices and such, so that way you can have a better understanding of how my prices work and can budget accordingly.


On a somewhat related note! I'm probably going to start setting up a Patreon page this week, to at least help while working on this backlog, if not grant me the opportunity to start doing art full-time again (which is ideally what I'd like to be doing and not being miserable in a food service job that doesn't pay me wages equivalent to the amount of work that I do). I'll make an announcement once it's all set up if you're interested in contributing to it.

ok that's all
