Now, I've had a few people curious about if I had shipped everything out yet. Or part of the items I've done for Black Friday. The answer is No, I haven't.
Now don't get freaked out. The reason for this is rather simple. At least to me it makes sense. I want to get all the commissions done, so I can take one trip on one tank of gas to my friend's house and have us scan the pieces, save them on a thumbdrive (we'll have to do two versions of scans. High Rez and Low Rez). After I get them scanned, I'll package everything up to their respective owners, and drive to the post office, stand in line for about 45 minutes, then take another 20 minutes to instruct the jackass behind the counter what to do and where the packages go. (I call the person behind the counter a jackass because I always have had nothing but trouble shipping stuff to people. It's just one of many things a freelance artist must do though and I am grateful for those that want commissions from me. So it's not a big deal. Everything gets shipped eventually, even if I am a little bloody after the encounter.)
Anyways... I am very sorry for the delay. I've talked to all of you and you're very understanding and very patient and I thank you for that. I'm working as fast as I can, when I can, to get everything finished. Today, being a snow day in Omaha Nebraska, I'll be in doors most of the day and that means... drawing and coloring YAY!
I'm going to go down the list from Black Friday... even stuff that was done on the show, to show level of completion.
James - 11x17 Shin (Pencils completed. Inks and colors will be done hopefully by tomorrow morning) / 8.5 x 14 Pencil (Will start either tonight, or tomorrow)
So as you can see, I have ... what... 3 items left to do? All good sized pieces. I'm hoping to get them finished this weekend, scanned by Tuesday at least, and mailed off Wednesday or Thursday. I will insure these packages and since only one item has to be sent over the border... I obviously see none of you having to pay to get your mail like they do in the UK. Guess we can be thankful for that... for now.
That's about it, I'm going to grab some breakfast and get cleaned up, then back to the board and inking the 11x17.
Thanks for your patience guys. Going as fast as I can for ya. Don't give up hope just yet lol.
Happy Holidays people
