Oh Crap Jack

Now Taking Commissions For January

Now taking 10 commission slots for January, so if you didn't get what you wanted for Christmas, or have some Holiday Loot to spend on yourself, this is a good place to do so!

9x12 $100 or 11x14 $200. Copic markers on Bristol, minimal background, up to two characters (or plus a child/pet – other added characters extra. Just ask!) Free shipping in the US.

When I finish several commissions and go to solicit for the next batch of commissions, I like to post my finished commissions on FA and LJ. Please tell me if you’d rather I didn’t when you commission me – I don’t want to make any mistakes.

A note about my speed: I have had several customers confused about how fast I can turn a commission around. Part of the confusion seems to be that I'm doing them in monthly batches, and that makes them think I'll be done by the end of the month.

I can't do that, as much as I'd like to. My health is wonky, especially my eyesight, but I'm keeping a steady pace that is sometimes faster and sometimes slower. (Depending on the complexity of individual commissions.) Right now, I've been able to turn an individual commission back in 3 months, from purchase to finish.

Finished Commissions and updates in next post: Stay tuned!

Question

Say, any of you folks -- fellow artists -- had any trouble with the Post Office lately? We've had several incidences of things traveling Texas and points east getting delayed for long periods of time. Best we can tell, there's something disturbing going on at the Texas border...

It's frustrating, because it's making my commission business look incompetent, and since I need the business to maintain a roof over my head, that's bad.

Anyway, let me know if any of you have had similar trouble.
