Hey folks :) Thanks for birthday wishes! In honor of being 28, I did absolutely nothing that day! It was great. 
I did see a Redbox movie - have you guys seen Interstellar? OH MY GOD, haha. I had no idea, I figured it was going to be a typical splodey-space movie like the kind my mom loves (love you mom) - but it just BLEW MY FRIGGIN MIND. We'd just finished 2001ASO (rented from my beloved library) and Interstellar reminded me of that movie, for some reason. Let me just say, some things happen, Matthew McConaughey in space, time is running out, a million years go by, everything is inside itself, nothing has mass, boom, darkness forever, alright alright alright. I haven't said "holy s---t" that many times in a LONG while.

I'm almost done with this batch of work, so I thought I'd ask if anyone would like to get on the commission queue for June. Remember, I specialize in floating women. Got it? Floating women. (But I'll take any kind of work.)

PS....Can I say this now...? I've been working on the cover for the New World SF&F anthology, published by Iron Circus! It's almost complete. Very excited about this job, I got to read some of the stories and they are ~~~fantastic~~~ and I am very honored to be a little part of it :) I will post more about the fundraising for the anthology later.

A client sent me a care package. 

I was sitting on the stoop, reading this exact line:

"I remembered my New Orleans days, living on two five-cent candy bars a day for weeks at a time in order to have leisure to write. But starvation, unfortunately, didn't improve art. It only hindered it. A man's soul was rooted in his stomach. A man could write much better after eating a porterhouse steak and drinking a pint of whiskey than he could ever write after eating a nickel candy bar. The myth of the starving artist was a hoax." - Charles Bukowski, Factotum

I mean, I was literally sitting on my stoop, feeling broke and hungry, reading freakin' BUKOWSKI, when this package arrived. 

The package was full of delicious asian food and tea. For the next hour, I sampled everything and cried a bit. I am the recipient of so much kindness and generosity. What did I do to deserve it? Virtual strangers keep reminding me that humanity is good, even when literature is trying to convince me otherwise.

My mood has lifted, my shoulders feel lighter. That care package made me happier than anything has in a while. It's in the name - CARE! Somebody cares. :D

Commissions:

I'm taking commissions on a donation basis. If you don't have a deadline and you don't have any specific requirements, you can donate whatever you can afford, and I will do something for you! Send me an email at chalkitupRVA@gmail.com with your information. You can send donations via paypal to 3936molehill@gmail.com. Suggested donation for a character portrait is between $10-20. But I am infinitely flexible. 

My situation is a little rough right now. We aren't on any social services at the moment, and money is tight. I don't have the internet at home, and I've been dealing with some health issues. Hopefully nothing serious, but it has been affecting my ability to get out and about, which is why I haven't been online as much. My husband is working now, but we have a lot of catching up to do, so I'm taking all the jobs I can get! 

Hire Me:

I'm looking for a full time job. I have a resume, a degree, and a complex work history in several fields of design. 
I'm also available for children's parties. Amateur ukulele player.

aww well, I feel like I've probably come across as pathetic. I'm just working on getting my life back in order, and worst case, I'll end up a legitimate crazy artist, cut off my ear, maybe get famous. there is no need to worry about me :) just going through the same stuff everyone is, I think. thank you for asking <3
