I've been hesitant to do this, but well, the last of my ex-wife's back child support is gone and the two fundraisers Pizza Hut and my awesome friends Colleen and Christian at copicmarkerscrapbooking.com started are gone as well. I'm still unemployed due to this wonderful thing called cancer and my parents have started paying all my bills. I've been getting a little bit through Etsy and sales of my paintings but it's hardly enough to see the ends, much less make them meet. So I've plopped a "Donate" button here. It's over there to the right above the social networking links.
I don't want to guilt anyone into sending a donation. If no one sends anything at all, that's perfectly fine, but I wanted to give people the opportunity. Mostly I just want to mitigate the amount my dad has to drop into the black hole that is his son. This blog started out as a marketing tool to get my work seen and hopefully generate sales and that's still very much preferred since you would be getting something in return - some nice art for your walls, but for anyone who can't afford a painting or who might not see anything they like (I do commissions too!), this is a way to help without dipping too deep into the cash flow. Any amount is truly appreciated and if you include a mailing address, I'll send something as a thank you. It's Paypal and you can use any credit card. If you don't want to click the button but still want to help, my Paypal account is under my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
