I put up a portrait commission on my Etsy Shop.
I rather like doing them. So thought I might try this. Please don't complain to me if it's expensive- you get a very high res file, and it takes 2-3 days. I just want a living wage :3
Fact is, I'm getting a lot of commercial work these days ( between that, which means I can't post work until it's officially published- and then my surgery- my gallery seems slow). So I haven't opened any non-commercial commissions in ages. If I want to pay my bills, I can't afford to do them. I have to stick to commercial work because it pays better.
But since I enjoyed these so much, if you ever wanted it- if you're looking for a very special, personalized gift or something, there it is. Also, I usually give customers my Skype, and you get to absorb my stunning personality.
Here is the link: www.etsy.com/ca/listing/522034…*This has been sold. If you are interested, keep watch of my Shop! I'll start taking more soon
Other than that, I had a crappy week. Had a panick attack because 7 weeks post-op my surgery area just started bleeding. It wasn't bad at all, but I live my life like I'm in constant survival mode. So the slightest thing makes me think I'm screwed lol.
But after sweating and googling horror stories for an hour- I phoned my surgeons office and they told me it's absolutely normal.
WHY on earth is there NO information on google for 6-7 weeks post-op? All you get is like, first 10 days post surgery, and then 6 months later. Nothing in between.
Then I took my beloved dog, Yuki...- my son- for his regular haircut.
See, I eat oatmeal for dinner so my dog can live like a king. So I also pay for superior haircuts. But yesterday, they BUTCHERED HIM. Like seriously. They scalped my dog. I was so mad lol. He looks like a sloth now.
Look at what they did!
Photo #1 his regular haircut (looking fabulous)
Photo #2 WTF did you shave his face down to the skin???
I hate complaining...but I phoned because I was in SHOCK. No apology, no concern.. just "yeah he moved". SO I leave a Google review, and suddenly the owner phoned me to apologize only *after* she saw the review.
I'm so over this. I have to say, though it has a lot of it's own unique problems.. I miss living in Japan because the customer service is exceptional. Meanwhile, in Canada, I feel like they only care if a customer makes a big stink. And I suck at doing that because I feel guilty for causing anyone distress.
But they jacked up his hair cut >:[
I sound like such a pill today
. I think 7 weeks of a soft food/liquid diet are starting to get to me.. o__@
