I love animals, colors, and YOU.
Here are some things I've done:
Little Fox | a wordless comic
Your Developing Body | a comic about classroom films, menses, and mayhem
My Big Fat Panic Attack | an illustrated essay
Let's Party | an illustrated essay on the awkwardness of being a non-child at a children's birthday party
How to Be a Man | mostly about beards
*too. If you’re going to be rude, at least do it correctly.
I thought I should ignore this comment the way you’re supposed to ignore online unpleasantness. But something about it gives me pause.
Every artist I know has a tough time pricing their work. A lot of mental and emotional baggage goes into it. In the end, with any luck, we find rates that are fair to us and the buyer. Rates that reflect our time and respect our abilities.
I’ve seen wonderful artists charging as little as $15 for full-body, dynamically posed commissions.
Guys, even if it only takes the artist 1.5 hours to complete the piece (which is quite the rush), then that’s practically minimum wage for a skilled trade.
So, okay. Maybe my prices are “way to high for skill level.” But I’m not going to be someone who brings prices down to sums that are unfair to other artists or to me.
