March-a-coming, and like last year I am involved in "Bowl For Kid's Sake", a charity bowling game to raise money for children who need special support like mentors, books, field trips, extracurricular activities. This event is sponsored by Big Brothers Big Sisters of The Bluegrass, a mentoring network in Kentucky. You can read the information here:
I am part of my company's team, the Belcan Blackhawks (Oh, how appropriate! ), but I chose this venue because of several reasons:
1. I am a father of 2. Each time I see or hear about a kid / kids in need of better education, I think about my own kids.
2. I love bowling, even though I suck (100 is a good day, 150 is a miracle, above that is impossible).
3. My boss is in the team too. I want a promotion (yes, if you haven't known me, I make immature jokes)
Each member of the team needs to raise money to "support" him / her to go bowling. The company will match dollar per dollar, so in the end the team will donate twice the money raised by the players combined. Last year I raised $50 (though none of my dA watchers participated.... Scrooges! I thought we were friends ). This year I'm going to try that again hoping to match if not outdo myself.
So I will open commission again until March 1 (the day I go bowling). For each donators I will make drawings:
- $10 for 1 (one) B/W artwork, full renderred
- $20 for 1 (one) color artwork
If you donate $20, you can choose to get 2 (two) B/W full rendered drawings, or 1 (one) color drawing. $30 will get you 3 B/W or 1 B/W and 1 color. $50 will get you 5 B/W, 1 color and 3 B/W, or 2 color and 1 B/W. $100 will get you... you do the math.
You can see my gallery to see what my strength and my weakness are. For B/W, I will do all the work. For color drawing, I will do the lineart and 2 friends will back me up (since I can't color worth of crap). Zhane Augustine has been working with me on several projects. Dairruger just recently extended his hands to color some linearts. You can see their galleries to see their works.
If you decide to do it, send your donation here:
Then PM me how you want to have your commission done. I draw just about anything (but bear in mind Zhane or Dairruger might be uncomfortable by some requests, so if you have a "crazy" request *wink*wink*, best to do it in B/W).
All I can say is this: if you don't care about children, if you don't care about me, do it for yourself, because in the end you're the only one that get something out of this (I don't get a penny out of this, all commission money will go to BBBS. I will collect my "revenue" in a form of good karma for my children).
