Life just handed me a bunch of crap that I'm having trouble dealing with. And that's on top of all of the other stuff I already have on my plate. I don't know when I'll be back, but it probably won't be until the end of summer. If you've commissioned me and don't want to wait that long, feel free to let me know, and I'll be more than happy to send a refund your way. Good luck to you guys.
I want to thank everyone for all the birthday messages sent my way! You guys are sincerely the best! I would also like to give a major thanks to Void-Wolf for the core membership, as well as my two buds s0s2 and TheArgoNinja for the pictures they made me! I had an absolutely lovely birthday and all of you made it that much more enjoyable! :D

So my good friend, TaiOshiro needs a bit of help acquiring some funds, and she's offering $10 bust commissions for it. More precise info can be found here Asking For Help (Update2 - Emergency Commissions)

If you guys can help her out, even just by spreading the word about this, that would be greatly appreciated! She makes awesome artwork to boot!
So my friend, TentaclePervert is now accepting sketch commissions so she can get a bit more income flowing her way. For more info about prices and all that, feel free to read her journal entry about it! Sketch Commissions OPEN: Help me save up for Con!
So two of my really good friends are in a hell of a rough spot right now, and they need all the help they can get. www.youcaring.com/jennifercren… This pretty much explains what exactly is going on with their situation, and any amount of money donated to them would be greatly appreciated!
Welp, 2017 is dead and gone, and now it's 2018. My new years resolution is to eat three pickled eggs at some point. Still, hope you guys have a good new year! :D

Figured its been awhile since I've given an update on my life, so here's the main thing... School is keeping me pretty dang busy, and in fact my first junior semester is wrapping up on the 15th of December. So until then, I'm still gonna be pretty busy with assignments and projects and all that. I have a fairly large back log of stuff that I owe people, so until I can get those finished and sent to people, commissions are closed until further notice, just so that my pile of work doesn't add up. Also, I really wanna thank you guys for being so patient with me! I really wanna get some more work out and completed, but school definitely has to come first whether I like it or not. Either way, I'm still kicking. All is good, albeit a bit more hectic than I am used to! ^^;

Yup. Prices are relatively the same as last time, but here they are for your perusal just in case. As before, if you want to commission me for something, feel free to send a note titled, "Commission" or something along those lines, and don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have either! :D

Don't worry, it's nothing too dramatic. I started school back on the 28th of August, which has basically taken over my life and is eating up a good chunk of my free time with homework. As such, it's taking me a bit longer to complete commissions and all that. I'm also closing commissions up and putting the monthly art trade thing on hold for the time being, or at least until I can properly adjust to my new routine. Thank you guys for your patience!

I wanna try something new here that might get the creative gears turning. Starting this month, I am offering art trades for anyone who wants them, BUT I'm only gonna accept 10 each month, and it's first come first serve. For now, I'm just going to stick to single character pictures, but I am a bit on the flexible side. I will draw pretty much anything within reason (If you're unsure what I will and won't draw, just ask!) as long as you guys are willing to draw me something in return. If you're interested, feel free to send me a note titled, "Art Trade" or something like that, and I will see what I can do!

Current Art Trade Spots;

FILLED! Spots will open up again on the 1st of September, 2017!

And speaking of character pictures, I'm also running a sale where they're only $5.00 each for one character, fully colored, shaded, the works! Just like the art trades though, only ten spots will be open, and again, it's first come, first serve! Once I complete all ten though, the spots will be open again. This offer will last until the 15th of September, 2017. So if you're interested in one of those, feel free to send me a note titled, "$5.00 Character Commission" or an email at michaeljlarsonart@gmail.com with a similar title!

Lately I've been feeling creatively burned out to the point where saying I have art block is an understatement. Part of me really just wants to kick myself in the rear and soldier on, but another part of me just wants to take it easy and focus on relaxing and letting the ideas come to me instead of forcing them out. Either way, I just want to let you guys know what's up, and to apologize for not posting as much as I used to. D:

Yeah, some of you guys may have seen this coming, but commissions are currently closed. If you had something you wanted to commission me to draw, then all I can say is that I'm sorry for the inconvenience. As for my remaining commissions, I will get them completed as soon as I am able. Thank you for your understanding!

Eh, I'm in one of my artistic ruts again... So yeah, if you're waiting on commission work, I'll try and get it done asap, but lately I've just been feeling rather bleh as of late. If anything, I want to thank you guys for your patience more than anything else. D:

Don't worry, it's nothing serious. Just a lot of things that have been gnawing at my brain for awhile now. SO LET THE VENTING COMMENCE!

... First of all, I'm tempted to open a patreon account, mostly because it seems like everyone has one these days, and more than anything it would give me an excuse to potentially get better connected to you guys, and to give you guys something back that you'd like to see. Not too sure about rewards though, maybe some sketches or something? I dunno.

Another thing I've been thinking about is getting into designing t-shirts. I got a plethora of designs in mind, but I wanna be sure people will actually want them just to save some time and effort on my part. I also don't want to charge people out the butt for them, but it seems like the base price is always $25 wherever I go, and to me that's a bit more pricey than I'd like. Maybe if it they could be sold for only $20, that'd be fine. Then again, I have to take into account the costs of shipping and printing the darn things, so I guess I honestly can't be picky when it comes to what people are charged.

I'm also tempted to open up commissions again, mostly because I need some extra spending money for an upcoming convention that I'll hopefully go with some buddies to (Midwest Gaming Classic, in case you were curious) but if I do that, I feel like I should hold off on opening up a patreon or even thinking about selling T-shirts, because the last thing I want to come off as greedy. D:

... And that's pretty much it! There are probably some thoughts that haven't formed yet that I'll want to vent out eventually, but that's all I got for now. I'm not expecting any answers or anything of that sort, but if you have some thoughts on these thoughts, then don't hesitate to make them known. Either way, thanks for reading this if you did. ^^;
