However, I'm quite desperate now. (my tumblr post, is here for those who have a tumblr!)
Here are some examples from my current portfolio I am working on (please note some are still in WIP.)
Currently re-working on my portfolio for commissions, but also desperately needing money as thanks to the Australian Government, it’s about to get way much harder for a person in my situation.
I have mental illnesses (GD, PTSD, Anxiety.), living independently and receiving money from centrelink/government. <this covers ONLY all my meds, rent and other bills and my food…. for a week. Well, technically, only a few days. The rest of the fortnight I’ve no money, and staying at home most of the time due to this.
As it is I’m having a struggle of a time to find a job at all- Been looking since I moved from sydney in November, with pretty much no interviews at all.
I’ve been trying to get cosplay commissions off the ground, but as I haven’t really done any before outside of friends, I have found I don’t get replies, which is understandable. (still working on them though, but to do some I need money to start with- it’s a vicious cycle!)
So I’m falling back to art. I can definitely create some jewellery work as well, if anyone is interested.
Currently how I work is you tell me what you’d like, and I can then estimate a basic price, which covers either materials used (if traditional or jewellery.) and the time it takes me to create it. If you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, as this is the way I would prefer to work.
If you can't afford a commission, I'd still be incredibly glad if you could spread the word!
