Eden Ivy by thundercake
Eden Ivy
Beautiful jobs come to me sometimes. This was for a son - a portrait of his mother, who has passed, and his newborn niece walking in the garden of Eden. I worked on this for 14 hours straight. Near the end I was almost in a trance, and I swear I could feel this woman's loving influence pushing my pen around.

I am honored to have been given this job, though I barely feel qualified to represent such an important subject!

You don't even know how cute these kids were originally, before I painted them. The answer: very.

Hello, fellow travelers. I hope your Friday 13th was a good one. For me, it came with a lot of bad luck, so it was a very traditional holiday. I approve of tradition, but disapprove of serendipity, especially when it doesn't occur nicely. 

Starting today, I am doing a one-week portrait sale to make ends meet.

The ends include rent, gas, bills and also food, since our food stamps were cancelled last month. (Bugger.) Having been on the stamps a couple times, I can tell you the difference is between eating nutritiously and trying not to eat at all. If only I'd known about this diet in college. It's simply fabulous. My head hurts.

There are some lovely things on the horizon for me - but they continue to exist there, on the horizon. My habit is to protest "I'll make it someday." It has become my mantra. It's a lot better than the last one, which was "just keep swimming just keep swimming just keep swimming."

I am terrible at journaling and even worse at marketing myself. That is why I use bold fonts to point out the important bits in my journal. I have never appreciated the importance of a topic sentence, and I'm not about to start now.

Here is a summary of the discounts for digitally painted OC portraits:

Avatars: $8/ea
Portraits: $15/ea (used to be 20!)
Double Portraits: $25 for both (used to be $40!)
Buy 3 or more: $10/ea (great balls of FIRE that's cheap!!)
New Customers get 10% off anything they buy!! 10% off $15 is a whopping $1.50! That's yours to KEEP, SON!

Contact me: Email chalkitupRVA@gmail.com with your request. I can draw real people, fake people, anthro characters, elves, hobbits, aliens, animals, theoretical entities, etc. 

You do not need a confirmation from me for these portrait jobs
, unless you want, like, 80 of them. I will take any and all jobs. You can send money directly to 3936molehill@gmail.com and reserve a spot on my paintin' queue. (I am getting these done in record time these days.) It is first-come first-serve. If you want confirmation that I can do a specific thing, you are welcome to text me at 540-223-7816. I have no internet at home, so please do not worry if I don't respond to an email right away - the phone is really the best method.

HIRE ME BECAUSE I AM FRIENDLY AND SMELL NICE

Thank you to everyone who has hired me so far during this tough time. Patrons are as important to the art world as artists. This has been my opinion ever since I started out, but I am seriously sure about it now. I feel like every job I get gives me a little bit more life and self-confidence. There's nothing like making a kid stare in amazement at their own portrait, or surprising someone's partner on their birthday, or making a total stranger ecstatic at seeing her characters come to life, all because I wiggled my stylus a certain way. I am ludicrously fortunate, and I thank serendipity, even if the word itself makes me cringe.
