I've received an influx of notes in the last week or so for requests and art trades. While I'd never discourage anyone from sending me a note about anything (even a "1" next to the envelope icon gets me pathetically excited), I thought I'd layout the policies I've had to come up with in recent days for the sake of convenience:
- While I never announced them as "open" to begin with, I'm closing requests and art trades unless I know you pretty well as a deviant. By that I mean that we first made contact at least a few weeks ago, we watch each other, have had regular correspondence via comments, etc.
-I'm opening commissions, both point and Paypal. Send me a note if you're interested.
-While I can't guarantee that I'll do it, I'm of course always open to ideas for paintings and drawings. If I end up using your suggestion, I'll credit and link to you in the description of the finished piece.
I really want to stress that I in no way resent inquiries. Nor do I want this to come off as self important. It's just come to the point rather suddenly where I'm having to turn down a lot of requests that I just can't afford to do. Not to mention that repeatedly writing responses essentially saying "no" is making me feel like a big ol' meanie.
REQUESTS are for friends only
TRADES are for friends only
COMMISSIONS (point and Paypal) are open
SUGGESTIONS are always welcome but not guaranteed
