Depending on the volume of commissions I receive, this may take me a while, but I will work in order of whose stuff gets paid first.
Payment and references expected up front.
Once paid, if you are first in the queue, I will start sketching your bookmark. I may work on multiple bookmarks simultaneously.
Once sketched, I will send you the sketch for approval. I will not proceed until I have this approval.
After it's sketched, I will ink and paint it.
post the finished bookmark to my gallery -- or to instagram. But I will provide you with the final image, and confirm your shipping address with you.
After that, I'll mail it.
And that's it.

Niji is my 15 year old cat, who was diagnosed last year with Chronic Kidney Disease. This is not uncommon in cats his age, and has so far been manageable with a special diet and subcutaneous fluid.
If you've been following me for a while, you may know that I had been taking him to the doctor to get him looked at because he had suddenly lost a lot of weight and was vomiting. We thought it was thyroid issues. It was not.
So, when his kidneys were finally diagnosed, we started treatment immediately - which was a kidney supporting prescription diet and other things.
This past vet visit, I suspected he had asthma or allergy issues because he's been wheezing. So we got x-rays and done as well as the standard kidney workup.We found out his heart is enlarged
- while not terribly shocking given his age, this means additional care and a visit to a cardiologist to determine the cause and treatment.
When I called, the visit and cardio workup costs $740 total. I do not live in a state with sales tax. This would not be so stressing if we had not already just spent $590 with his normal vet to get him checked on.Regardless of what happens, I will ensure that he gets the care he needs.
Ultimately, this is not a situation that will "get better". This is a situation in which we are aiming to keep things from deteriorating, and make my companion comfortable.
The money from commissions will be used to help pay for his vet care, because this has very very quickly gotten expensive.
Update! Niji went to the vet today to get checked out. The long and short of it is that it looks like his left ventricle has some enlarged walls, though the cause could either be:
-Heart disease (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy)
Either way? MANAGEABLE. But, that cardio workup and appointment was still $740, which is still an expensive visit. T_T;;; So commissions are still appreciated, especially considering he has to go back in 6 months.
