It’s finally time. While I haven’t had the time to produce full examples of each thing, I figured I should stop procrastinating and finally put up prices for commissions. I might make a more decorative listing, with examples and the like later.

My schedule is somewhat hectic, but if you are…

Anonymous said: You shouldn't raise the price of your commissions at all. You make fantastic artwork for 20 dollars. It is a perfect price.

Wow I’m sorry but that made me feel really degraded. I wasn’t going to raise it to $100 or something. It’s a perfect price to a buyer, but my art isn’t worth 20 dollars but that’s not my point. 

 Yes I know it’s a good deal, but I’m not a robot. Even if I’m someone that “sucked” at drawing, the matter is all about the time spent on my drawings. On average it takes me 6 hours to create 20 dollars worth of a drawing. That’s like 3.3ish dollars an hour. Working all day. Possibly no sleeping until the next day. No breaks except to use the bathroom or to eat 1 cup of ramen or not eat at all. Because of the time limits I’m receiving.

Please keep in mind the only reason people ever charge 20 dollars for a commission is due of the crippling trend of amateur artists selling themselves short at those prices- a trend that artists like Rinji has to compete with. Any self respecting artist knows that is hardly an acceptable price for their works. Rinji knows that. And that is why I applaud them for raising their prices because it is our responsibility as artists to educate people like you that a 20 dollar commission is not a perfect price at all.

I hope you have learned something from this, anon, and please, never, ever assume nor determine the price of an artist’s time if you are the client and they are their own employer. The price is set by them and it is your choice to either comply or move on.

can we talk about how living wage is $15/hr?

Can we talk about how artists should have THAT as a baseline, and because they are SKILLED WORKERS IN THEIR PROFESSION, should actually be charging even more?

I charge at around $15-$20/hr. My dad’s a freelance graphic designer and has been in the industry for over 20 years; he charges $80/hr.

Rinji works at a little over $3/hr

can we talk about how the expectation for low commission prices is a issue, or…?

because $100 is NOT a ridiculous price. At ALL. That’s ~$16.60/hour for a 6 hour commission, which is cheap as hell.

I mean I get why people price the way they do; competition.

HOWEVER: Each commissioner is commissioning YOU because they like YOUR style. Usually? People are more than willing to pay more. Fuck, dude. I worked at a place that sold knife sets for like $2000/set, and people ate that shit up. People spend money on whatever they want as long as they know it’ll be quality work that they’ll enjoy.


^This.

We should really be encouraging our fellow artists to charge themselves as they would as a professional. You’re offering your services because you know your art is worth doing business with. If we’re not going to stand up for our own industry, no one will.

Maggie Menu
On the menu for Maggie tonight is puréed sweet potato, puréed brown rice, sprouted organic tofu, chia seeds, and digestive enzymes. Does she look excited? She is!

This dog does not look excited, this dog looks malnourished.
The diet you are feeding your dog places a huge burden entirely on the pancreas, forcing it to produce large amounts of amylase to deal with the starch, cellulose, and carbohydrates in plant matter. (yes, even with your supplements) The carnivore’s pancreas does not secrete cellulase to split the cellulose into glucose molecules, nor have dogs become efficient at digesting and assimilating and utilizing plant material as a source of high quality protein. 
When this stuff sits in the pet’s intestine (yes even with your supplemented enzymes) it not only irritates the lining of the bowels but also provides the perfect warm, wet environment with plenty of undigested sugars and starches as food for bacteria. 
I respect your choice in leading a vegan lifestyle, but please do not force this on your pet who does not recognize the difference, your dog absolutely needs a healthier diet or it is going to develop health issues and I guarantee you, will not live as long as it could otherwise. 

fuckin animal abuse
your dog cannot be vegan you sick fuck
how can you even tag this as “vegan dog”, youre screaming to the world that you are knowingly depriving this dog of what it needs.

Re blogging because this is just wrong.
Dogs cannot be vegan.

DOGS AND CATS ARE NOT VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN!
STOP IT, YOU’RE EMBARRASSING AND SADDENING THE REST OF US

I’m not sure how many times it will need to be stated before this becomes common knowledge, but I am determined to make it known, so here it is again:Dogs and cats are biologically adapted to eat meat. And while dogs may not be obligate carnivores like cats, they DO NOT HAVE A DIGESTIVE TRACT SUITED FOR A VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN DIET ALONE. Dogs, like wolves, have adapted to eat certain plant products when meat is scarce. They do this only in rare instances, and only when nothing else is available. Just because they are capable of eating small amounts of plant foods doesn’t mean they can thrive on a diet consisting of that and that alone. In fact, a dog’s intestine is too short to fully-process a proper range of nutrients obtained from your sweet potato and rice dish. You are literally robbing your pet of important nutrients, leaving him malnourished and susceptible to bacterial infestations and disease. 
Militant vegans seem to think they’re the experts on telling people which animals are adapted to eat which diets (clearly humans shouldn’t eat meat because we don’t have claws and fangs, amiright?). And yet when it comes to their pets, they break all the rules of their own ideology and feed what is obviously a carnivorous mammal a diet that is clearly not suitable for them.
So ask yourself: “Why am I really forcing my dog to eat this?” Is it because it makes you feel better about yourself? It’s clearly not for the benefit of your dog. You are imposing your will upon this animal in a manner which is detrimental to his health. This is abuse, plain and simple. 

Being vegan is fine. If you eat right, you can get what you need. Human’s are designed to eat the diet of an omnivore, hence we have both chewy-grindy and teary-shready teeth, so we can be a little choosy if we’re morally against some foods.
Dogs and cats can not. For starters, they have no chosen the vegan diet, and, as mentioned by the other commenters, it’s literally killing them. They are designed to eat primarily meat, if not meat entirely.
I have admiration for those who can eat a vegan diet and still maintain proper health… but I have nothing but hatred for those who force that diet on their pets.
