december tidings

•Thank You•

I'd like to thank the people who left such kind comments on my last journal entry. It means a lot to me that you guys were not just understanding but also supportive. Things calmed down for my family and me in November and I'm starting to look forward to the holidays and New Year. I hope everyone's December is off to a good start too.

•Milestones and Kiriban Reminder•

While I'm on the topic of giving thanks, I'd also like to express my gratitude at having reached 100,000 pageviews recently. This is also a reminder that I do an "automatic" kiriban every 10,000 pageviews even if I don't announce it. For details on how this works, check "Do you do kiribans?" on my FAQs page.

•Commission Update•

Since I already did my "annual" commission sale this year for charity, I won't be holding the usual holiday sale that I've done in past years. The last sale felt extremely rewarding for me but was also huge undertaking, hence the break. But don't worry. There will be plenty of opportunities for free or discount art from me next year.

I've got a pile of Christmas/holiday gift commissions in the works right now. This is a reminder to anyone who was thinking of giving art from me as a gift to someone to please contact me within the next couple days. Otherwise, I can't guarantee that your request will be ready by the 25th of December.

•Animal Photo Contest Winners•

Finally, I'd like to post the winners of this year's Animal Photo Contest. Please excuse the lateness of this announcement and the general lack of fanfare compared to last year. 

The Derp of Herp by BlurryShadow Prize status: In progress
Watching by Blueranyk Prize status: Incomplete
Samoyed King by Etskuni Prize status: Incomplete
