Hi guys, I would like some extra cash for bills and gas and stuff so I’m opening commissions again. If you want more examples, please feel free to look at my blog. Just reposting the rules here for those who can’t read my writing:
Right now I’m offering busts, chibis, full bodies, and icons. Commissions opened for this weekend only!
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested! Also, a reminder that there’s a sale at my shop for prints which would also help me out a lot. Thanks!
This was a doodle I drew while I was sleep deprived and now it’s an AX print.
For sale here.
Also my other prints are on sale ‘cause I wanna get rid of them
I wanna clean out my inventory so please take something if you want it! But you better hurry ‘cause prints are suuuper limited!
JANUARY IS BORING, LET’S DRAW COMICS!
The holidays are over and there’s not much going on, so let’s have some fun! Me and my friends pigeony and internetkatze are challenging ourselves to complete comics of at least 15 pages in length during the month of January. It’s like 24 hour comics day but less stressful and sleep-deprived! We’ll be posting our wips and finished stuff in the tag #january comic month 2014.
It’s not anything big and official, but we hope you’ll join us!
HEY!!!! LOOK AT THIS COOL THING WE’RE DOING!!! YOU SHOULD DO IT TOO!!!
Re-pimping this because it starts tomorrow!
Ignore the female anatomy going on under the picture
my art belongs on my art blog
Yeah, that’s definitely okay by me!
Ah yes, I improved so much this year
I bought mine on ebay for about $250, which included button parts! I should also mention my machine is a Tecre standard and only for 1.5” parts. It’s worked very well for me and none of my buttons ever fall apart. You can find them on eBay these days for about $200~ depending on the size you want your buttons to be.
If you can’t do eBay, there’s button biz and button boy inc! I’ve bought parts from button biz and their shipping is always free. I’ve never personally used button boy inc, but I know people who have, so I’m going to assume they’re also very safe to purchase from.
What I print usually depends on how well I think they’ll sell. Except I always happen to be wrong so I’m probably the worst person to ask sldfjsdf Like, if I have a new print, if I don’t like it much I’ll only make 3. If I like it, I make 5-8 to see how well they sell. If I know a print will sell well because it did in the past, I make 15 (although I almost always always always end up having to go to fedex office to make more at least 3 times during the con. At Fanime I made like 5 trips) I only do 15 because while it does do well at one con, it might not sell well at another and I can always use the leftovers for my storenvy.
As for a button maker, I think of it as extremely profitable. I have buttons in my store and I always make about $4-10 a week just sitting on my butt. At a con, buttons are what sells the most and I can make back the cost from the machine in just one con, and still make a profit in the same con or in other cons.
