Recently I've been receiving a lot of notes concerning commissions, as such, I feel the need to address my standpoint on them here.
I've battled long and hard with the idea of doing commissions, and for a long time I have resisted coming directly out and saying "I do not do commissions."
After much thought on the subject, I have decided, that either for reasons of morality, quality and many other personal issues, I will not offer commissions. It is simply not why I draw.
It's hard for me to put into words exactly why I don't have any interest in them - but the best I can describe is that I draw, for nothing more than my own amusement. It's a release, a hobby, a past time.
When I try and make it into anything more than that, I become a very different person on the inside, and I have come to the conclusion that I don't like that person, that feeling, and seek to avoid it at any price.
I will never be a "Professional".
I do not seek fame and fortune with what I do.
I only want to enjoy sharing what I do with those who enjoy sharing it.
I'm sorry if that disappoints you, but I can assure you that having it in any other way would be an even greater disappointment, as I could simply not force myself to do things in that way.
I'll answer any questions you might have,
but if the question is if I do commissions - the answer is no.
