I’ve got a few small boxes full of vintage patterns from the fifties, sixties, and I think a couple from the early seventies that I need to get rid of. They were given to me, but I’ve got no use for them. Most of them are still in thier packages. Some packages have tears, unfortunately, due to age. Wide variety. Mostly women’s clothing, but everything from aprons and dresses, to suits and sweaters. There are a few mens patterns as well.

I’ll add pictures to this post in a little while.

Sizes vary somewhat. Some have been used. I haven’t gone through all, I’m afraid.

I’m opening up commissions. I was planning to do so before but a series of events I won’t bore you with here expedited the process. Long story short, I’m broke and need money badly. And you guys probably want art. Who doesn’t like cool art, after all?
So just take a moment and look through. If anything catches your interest, send me an ask and we’ll talk. It’s that simple!
Pen Sketches: Flat price $8 USD



Void art:
Base price $15

Chibi/Wind Waker style: 
$8 base price. Price goes up for each additional character or animal.


*I can cell-shade these. I do not unfortunately have an example at this time.
Pencil sketch:
Portrait base price $8 USD. Full Body base Price $15.



Character paintings:
Portait base price $15
Full body base price $30



Full paintings:
Base price $50



Please note: 
-Prices are subjective to the complexity of a character’s design, time, and the number of subjects. These are just basic figures to give an idea.
-Penwork is entirely subjective. I can’t go back and add things after it’s done. You tell me upfront what you want, and get what I send you. That’s it. If you want to nitpick and see the art before it’s finalized, DO NOT ASK FOR A PEN PIECE. 
That said, I do my best to ensure that they’re of the best quality I can give you.
I usually do the more detailed painting style as seen above. However, if desired, I can take a crack at cell painting the chibis, or other characters. Please know that that is an option.
If you want to see some more examples of my art, though they’re primarily WIPs, look here.
Please note that I don’t draw mechs, NSFW, or fetish material. 
Don’t know how to pay for commissions? Look here!
If you commission me, I will give you the email address to use after we have negotiated details. 
Payment must be upfront. No exceptions. 
I only accept payment through Paypal.
And now that the messy, serious business is out of the way, I look forward to hearing from people.
If you have any questions, please send me an ask.

Ninety-eight years ago today, on 24 April 1916, the Easter Rising began in Dublin, Ireland. A rebellion against the seven-century-long British occupation of Ireland, it called for a “sovereign and indefeasible” independent socialist republic independent from the United Kingdom and the event acted as a catalyst for the Irish Revolution (1921–1922).

Initially a force of 1,300 members of the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB), Volunteers (IV) and Citizen Army (ICA) under the command of socialist republican James Connolly, the rebellion acquired a further 3,000 soldiers over the course of five days and occupied several Dublin landmarks—including the Four Courts, City Hall, St Stephen’s Green, Phoenix Park and the General Post Office, from which Pádraic Pearse read the Proclamation of the Irish Republic (Forógra na Poblacht na hÉireann) and declared independence from Britain.

Pearse, Connolly and other leaders surrendered on 29 April after 15,000 British troops were deployed to Dublin by the week’s end, and the conflict lasted until 30 April. A total of 466 people (64 IRB/IV/ICA members, 132 British soldiers and 254 civilians) were killed during the conflict. In the aftermath, 1,500 men were interned by the British government and 16 leaders and planners of the Rising were executed, without inquiry, at Kilmainham Jail. However, Éamon de Valera—who would later become President of Ireland–escaped execution due to his American birth.

Although unsuccessful in achieving independence from Britain, the Easter Rising is seen as a catalyst to the later events in the Irish revolutionary period, particularly the Irish War of Independence (1919–1921) and the Irish Civil War (1922–1923).

"I write it out in a verse—
MacDonagh and MacBride  
And Connolly and Pearse
Now and in time to be,
Wherever green is worn,
Are changed, changed utterly:
A terrible beauty is born.”W.B. Yeats, “Easter, 1916”

Proper update now that I’m calmer:

Basically we need money to pay a guy to repair our car. Thankfully we’ve got the parts for it. But we can’t have my dad do it, obviously, as he had three surgeries and a heart attack only a month ago. 

Then shit happened. A lot of shit. We no longer have money to pay the guy we needed to pay to fix the car. We don’t have money for anything, really.

Thankfully my mom gets paid Thursday, but that still leaves us with the issue of being broke after groceries and bills for the coming month and unable to pay the guy we were going to pay to fix the car. Not that we’d be able to get groceries with a broken car.

We’ll get through things, we always do, but I’m still going to be taking commissions. I was planning to anyway, but I’m just set on getting the post up as fast as possible now because I dislike having no money to fall back on for unexpected expenses, and given how things have been lately, and that there are currently six people in our house, I don’t want to take any chances.

Also, thank you everyone who has expressed concern so far. I really appreciate the kind thoughts.

Finished example pictures. Need to type up a post and finalize base prices. …..Later. I’m too burned out for it right now. Hopefully it’ll be up at a reasonable time tomorrow.

“I’m an accomplished magical duelist, ranked third overall in the state and fifteenth on the east coast, and I’ve competed in international tournaments in the past?”

“Suddenly being told just that you compete in tournaments seems to not do that justice,” Erin said as she rubbed the back of her neck. “It sounds impressive, but I’ll need to go see a match at some point. Better frame of reference then.”
“Killian told you about it, I guess?” Chick smirked. “Yeah, he never really goes into detail on that. I think he likes giving me the chance to brag about it for myself.” She paused. “There’s going to be a tournament for the hundred-plus division in November—and ‘hundred-plus’ just refers to the age of the Flickers being used, so all of them would be one hundred years or older—so if you wanted to come see a real show, that’d be your chance.” She glanced at the hen perched on the edge of the sink. “Don’t get me wrong, Nairobi’s matches just look so much more dramatic because, well, fuckin’ lioness, but…The sparks really fly with Helena.”

Unfortunately, it seems Helena didn’t want to grace us with her appearance for this picture.
Have another illustration of Chick Reid, and one of her flickers, Nairobi, an African Lionness.
Curious about Chick and Nai? They’re two of our lovely ladies from Flickers and Sparks. A New Adult fantasy series. The project even has a blog here.
