Hey guys. So, here’s the skinny. Back in December, I lost my job. The art house I was working for essentially shut down. I wasn’t paid for about 1.5 month’s work, and I was forced to find emergency work in retail, which is where I’ve been for the last couple months.
Like most retail, I’m not paid very well there, and don’t get enough hours. I’m searching for a better job, or a second one to supplement this one, but shit’s tough and I haven’t had any luck.
Money is getting really, really tight. I’ve been able to scrape together enough each month so for, but if something’s not done, I may not have enough to cover my rent and utilities this month. I don’t want to borrow from friends or family, who have all already done enough for me.
I’ve had my commissions open for awhile, but I could really, really use the help at this time.
One flat color character will cost $15, with an additional $5 per added character.
One fully colored and shaded character will cost $20, again, with $5 per additional character.
All pieces will have one small background element, as seen in the examples above.
If you are interested, you can message me here on tumblr, shoot me a note on my Deviantart page, or even email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact me with a quick description of what you want, and I will respond as quickly as I can.
Please guys, I’m starting to get desperate, and worrying constantly about money and my general financial situation is making me sick.
I don’t want a hand-out. Even $5 for a b/w sketch would be nice.
I just really, really need some help right now. Even just reblogging this could help a lot!
Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
