Commissions for Vet Bills

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 5, 2018, 9:21 AM


As you can tell this.... well, this is to cover some vet bills.

Edit to add: There is now a section for existing merch, if you like any of my other stuff.

Skip to the bottom of the journal for what the diagnosis is post-visit!

Clarification regarding slots -- I can take a maximum of 5 commissions at one time.  Other work would be placed on a waiting list and not paid until there is space in the present queue.
These are only bookmark commissions, other options are unfortunately not open at this point in time.

Current Queue:

  1.  Magical-Mama 
  2.  Mahotou
  3.  
  4.

Bookmark Commissions


Img 20180610 193817 by kabocha Img 20180614 233634 by kabocha
$15 each.  Shipped using USPS first class mail.  Comes with protective sleeve and tassel.

Paypal ONLY.  Due to shipping costs, I can only ship within the United States right now.
If you cannot receive mail or are too young to use Paypal, please do not commission me. I cannot accept points.

These are simple watercolor bookmarks, featuring a chibi character.  They are painted using professional quality watercolors, and include a small "quote" or something else if appropriate. They take anywhere from 2~6 hours each to produce.

The examples above are representative of what I will be doing.

If this is something you are interested in, please send me the following information in a note:

  • Your Email Address
  • Character Name
  • Reference Image
  • Desired Quote/Text (keep it short, please)
  • Background color (optional - if unspecified, I will choose)
  • Tassel Color (optional - if unspecified, I will choose. Options are below.)
    Your choices: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green Blue, White, Light Pink, Light Purple, Light Blue, Light Green
The backing paper of the bookmark will be chosen at my discretion.

You may request multiple bookmarks -- the fee is $15/each.

Once I have received your note, I will send you information to submit payment via paypal.

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.

The Process


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.
I may 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.

Pre-Existing Merchandise


So you like my art... But don't want to commission me? That's cool. I have other stuff you can buy:

Bulbasaur, Pikachu, Charmander, Chrom, Celica, and Alm

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.


Post-Visit Update

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:
-Thyroid issues.
-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.

*HUGS*

1- You can hug the person who hugged you!
2- You can't hug the person more than 2 times
3- You -MUST- hug at least 6 other people
4- You should hug them in public! Paste it on their user page! c'mon... don't be scared of public displays of affection
5- Random hugs are perfectly okay! (and sweet)
6- You should most definitely get started hugging right away!


I'm evil. O_o

I don't know if it'd work in PS7. I don't see why it wouldn't, but I think another person had the same kinda problem.
