the virtue of the world, the paragon of animals what a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god!

Hi tumblr.
Some of you may know, although I try to keep my personal struggles fairly private, that over the past three years I’ve been working in store management for a major retail company. Over the past year, the situation at my job continually deteriorated until I was more or less an exhausted, depressed mess. I withdrew socially and barely had energy to paint, which is one of my favorite things to do.

To make a very long story short, I never wanted to stay in retail for the rest of my life, and my job became so totally unbearable that I felt more-or-less forced to quit for the sake of my own sanity. My goal is eventually to work in program management for an arts-based facility. I’ve gotten my foot in the door at some local institutions, but unfortunately I will probably have to work as an unpaid intern for some time until I graduate to a paid position.

With that said, I still have rent, groceries, and student loans to pay for, and I’m hoping to scare up some of the money for my various living expenses through commission work. I know many of you who frequent tumblr don’t have the disposable income to pay for artwork, but if you wouldn’t mind reblogging this post as a signal boost, I’d really appreciate it.

More examples of my artwork can be found in the “my art” tag.

    •    Portraits - $40
    •    Half body, some background $45 +$20 per additional character
    •    Full body, little to no background - $60 + $30 per additional character
    •    Full body + scene - $90 + $30 per additional character.
Keep in mind, I am capable of drawing more than just character-based images as well. If you’re looking for a landscape, an animal, etc, please let me know and we can discuss terms.

You can contact me via ask, or email lhommedepointe (AT) gmail dot com.
