Where things stand

Okay guys, here's where things stand.

I couldn't connect to my livestream on Saturday, and my provider (Red5Host) has failed to respond to tech support requests. I'm closing the account, and I'm not looking for another one. I've been fed up with livestream services for a long time now, and it's not worth the struggle.

Sales on the live shows have dried up, anyway. I spend most of my time waiting for people to buy art instead of working. There are a few enthusiastic regulars, but I can't expect a handful of guys to support the whole thing.

So, I'm giving up on the live shows altogether. That's it. I'm done with it.

That leaves me with the question of how to pay rent, not to mention the fees for my car. I raised the $400 I needed during the sketch marathon, but I had to use that money to pay rent because there wasn't enough business after that. And now I've learned it will cost $600, not $400, so I need to start over.

The only thing I can think to do is to sell commissions, even with my backlog.

The $600 can be handled quickly if there are three of you out there who each have $200 for a large commission. I'll draw up to 6 characters in a group drawing for you. Contact me and let me know.

Beyond that, to cover my $1000 rent, I'll open 10 slots for my duo sale. $110 for a drawing of a couple.

That's all I'll offer this month.

I'll do what I can to work on the backlog, and meanwhile, please visit my online store. Every sale helps.
