Hello, loyal watchers!
I've been all over the board lately when it comes to a number of things, so I thought I'd do one big journal entry to cover everything that needs covering. From Commissions, things I owe, my current projects, updates on life and everything in between! There's been so much going on lately that to be honest I've gotten a bit overwhelmed, so this journal is as much to clear things up for me as it is for you! With that in mind, let's start with the first matter of business, shall we?If I owe you a Drawing, Commission, or if you've noted me and I haven't gotten back to you or I've left you hanging.. Please state it below
, or send me a fresh note stating what it is I owe you or where we left off! I know there are a lot of hats on my to-do list, Some drawings I owe from when my mom and I couldn't make rent (Which I still greatly appreciate everyone for helping with, by the way! We couldn't have survived without you. You're all angels.) and probably quite a few notes that I've quite frankly lost track of! There's just been so much on my mind! Along with that, if I owe you something and you need it sooner than later please let me know as well so I can prioritize what people need in a hurry, and who doesn't mind waiting a little bit, just for my own ease.
I've got a lot to do in the next while here, so letting me know if you don't mind waiting a little, or if it's the oposite and you need it in a hurry, please let me know! Even if you've told me already when you needit by. Having all this information in one place will help me get better organized! I'd really appreciate it!
Secondly, Tophe! I'll keep this one brief, and I'm sure he'll be stalking my deviantart and leave a nice little 'Fuck you, Harry.' Don't below, but he's out of the hospital and starting to feel a lot better! He's resting a lot, and his throat hurts, but he's on his way to recovering after having nearly died. He really appreciated everyone's thoughts, he thought it was really sweet how concerned a lot of you were about his welfare. c:
Next off, My social... things! Haha!
As many of you know, Last year Tophe and I worked together on a project called Random Hats: Hats 4 Haiti. With all of your support and donations, we were able to raise $2,061.05 for Misha Collins' Charity of choice, Random Acts!
It went to help a whole lot of people, and you should all be very proud! This year, We're starting it up again,
however we have a new cause in mind! Keeping to the theme of raising money for some of our favourite actors, and keeping it in the Supernatural family, we've decided to support Richard Speight Jr this year! We're trying to get ahold of his people, but in the mean time all we can say is that no matter what it goes to a charity of his choosing! Along with that, if anyone is interested, anyone who donates in any form gets their name and a message of their choosing in card that will be given to Richard Speight Jr at Vancon in August!
Just before his Birthday! Sounds pretty cool, right? So you'll be helping what will no doubt be an awesome charity cause, as well as show some love for an actor who alongside the big names at supernatural conventions.. Well, let's just say I don't think he'll be expecting it! I've made a couple of chibis already that I intend to sell as stickers/prints for people who want to donate small amounts if anyone is interested
, I'll probably be posting them up soon! I've done Castiel and Gabriel so far, I intend on getting Sam and Dean done soon as well! Here's a couple links to the ones I have finished! [link]
As soon as I can get my to-do list down a bit, I'll probably be putting up some hats to sell off for our charity project as well! And closer to the date, I'll no doubt be putting at least a portion of every hat I sell or do on commission to the fundraiser as well. Random hats is my baby! I only want it to succeed, and for us all to channel together and do some real good in the world! Last year Random Acts, This year Donate 4 Speight, next year... THE WORLD. BUAHAHAH. You can find out more about our Random hats Fundraising campaign here: [link]
Keeping to the theme of charity! I'm also making a few hats for a dear friend of mine, Rae (NerdyLittleDude) On tumblr who is taking part in the h2h campaign. He's trying to raise $5,000 for Random Acts, and if he does he'll get to go to Haiti to help the people who need it most in person. I'm making a Castiel themed hat,
as well as two "Sweater Verse" hats based off of his fanfiction. Basically, really ugly print fleece with black cas wings on the back! Half the proceeds will be going to his h2h campaign to help Random Acts, and half will be going to Tophe and I's Random Hats: Donate 4 Speight campaign!
If anyone purchases these hats, they'll also get their name and message in Richard's birthday card if they so choose. Wins all around, once again! Woo!
Now, something a bit more out of left field. If anyone is doing Gishwhes this year, and is looking for a hardcore team that plans on going all the way.. Team Impala is starting it's recruitment process! If you'd like to fill out an application, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. I realize most of you don't know what this is, so feel free to ignore this, but if you're one of those people who wishes they could have done more with Gishwhes last year.. we might be who you're looking for. So there's that. c:
And last but not least, I'll be at a convention next week!
If you're in the Vancouver, BC area and are familiar with Anime Evolution, they are hosting a small con on the 23rd called J-fest! I have a small table booked, I'll be there with some hats, accepting commissions and giving price estimates perhaps, Doing some doodles, accepting donations for charity, and selling some prints of things! All the proceeds from Supernatural artwork will be going to Rae's Random Acts fundraiser, and my own random hats as well. 50/50. Everything else at my table will have at least 20% of it's proceeds going to my own fundraiser as well! So if you're in the area, or were planning on being there, you've got that! c:
I think that's all!
Much love, from this crazy person who bites off more than they can chew everytime they open for commissions,
