April Update

Wed Apr 15, 2015, 12:41 PM

Hey guys, 

It seems that I am only getting around to doing a journal about once a month, so let me tell you what's going on now. 

- I opened a Patreon account, please go over there and support me. Every dollar counts!
- Opened a new prints store where you can buy all kinds of fun stuff like traveling mugs, cell phone and tablet skins, pillows, and much more!…
- Other than that I've been busy with commissions. I'm working on moving and shaking some of my business stuff, to be able to deliver an even better service. I will soon post a 'Subscribe to Newsletter' link, so everybody can find out what's happening as it's happening. 

A Shout Out

Something I've never done before is to publicly thank specific people for the awesome support the provided me with. Whether it is a chat on a rainy day or a nice comment on every artwork I post, these people are always there for me. So thanks!! (This is going to become a permanent placement in my journals, my way of saying thanks to these people is to feature their names on my profile always. If I left you out, please don't feel bad, I can't always remember all the names, but I'll include you in the future! :heart: )

I reply you here due to t3d closed.

You said "please see my edited post"

"This don't change the point, when someone choose you for your portfolio and commission you a job, they ask you for a free sample before? portfolios are useless then?"

Hope you can understand my point.

Have a nice day, best wishes!
