Holy Crap, Art Update!!!
Yes. I have some art updatage. Though with all of the recent stuff that has been cluttering up my life and eating away at my time, I am rather behind in commissions, which I’m sure is of no surprise to anyone who knows me. O_x Though I am still shooting for getting most of my AC batch done by the end of November. Probably not all of the full-character pieces will be done, but I am gunning for it.

Also, to anyone who has e-mailed me recently asking about new commission requests, I have decided that I will ONLY be accepting commissions once a year from now on, during Anthrocon, because art is just something that I don’t seem to have a whole lot of time for anymore. And now with my plans to move to BC by next year, it’s just not something that will be on my mind, other than learning animation.

With that said, I figured that I would at least post up the large sized badges that I have inked. I will try to get these all colored and mailed out by early November. Still waiting to hear back from Jaql, Kody Wolf, Jungrey, and Wesha regarding your badge descriptions. I will be sending out e-mails today regarding other folks’ commission progress.

Also, on a separate note, the Dog Legislation Council of Canada has made it’s $100, 000 goal for the Legal Challenge’s fees, though about $40,000 of that had to be borrowed in order to make the due date. A HUGE thank you to all of you who donated to the cause! We’re not quite done yet, though. ;) We will still have to pay off what we borrowed, on top of the $50,000 fees for the new motion, and so many different fundraisers are being planned.

I had thought of organizing an Art Portfolio to help contribute to the fight against Breed Specific Legislation. The theme would be to choose a “bad” or misunderstood breed of dog, (Pit Bulls, Rotties, Dobes, Mastiffs, German Shepherds, Akitas, etc.) and draw them in a fun and positive light! Be as creative as you can be, I just ask that the artwork do not exceed a PG-13 rating. Once an art piece is done, stick it up on Furbid, or any other auction venue, and then donate the final bid amount to the Legal Challenge.

I was also thinking of having all of the artwork compiled onto CDs (which I will be paying for) and then donating them to any local DLCC booths to sell. Most of these vendors sell T-shirts, hats and mugs… I think that the unique idea of an Art CD might be a big hit amongst dog lovers out there. :) I would also make all of the art images available online, to the contributing Artists only, so that they may make Art CDs of their own to sell at conventions and whatnot.

I am hoping to start organizing this Portfolio by the beginning of December, in time for Christmas. How many Artists out there think that this is a good idea, and would be interested/willing to donate a bit of time and work to this Portfolio project? Spread the word to anyone you think might be interested. I think that it would be a lot of fun! ^_^

D'oh, no commissions for those of us who don't do AC?

Hey there, I got your e-mail. :) Sorry about the slow reply. As for the commission request regarding your website, I seriously can't even think of taking on anything new anytime soon. O_x I am so behind, and am making enough people wait since July as it is... but who knows, I may have more free time by July of next year. Even if you don't make it to the con itself, if you send me an e-mail again around the time of Anthrocon, I can see what my batch looks like by then, and then maybe consider it, as long as I'm not overloaded. I really have to limit myself, or I tend to get myself into trouble! ;_;

You and Tim seem to be gluttons for overloading yourselves. :p

You could raise your commission rates. I won't say how much, but I paid significantly more (as in many times more) than your commission rates (especially if your rates are in CDN$) to a local artist for a commission I bought for a friend's birthday and it was well worth it.

I would definitely want to be a part of that portfolio (if you'd want me). I know a lot wonderful "baddies", and I really wish they'd stop being picked on :/

Totally! All artists are welcome, especially if they are as passionate about "baddies" as I am! ;) I will make an official post regarding this Portfolio idea closer to the end of November/beginning of December. I'll probably make a LJ Community. Thank you for your interest!

Heya hun! Just thought I'd check and see I'd be able to retrieve my badge by MFF? I've been anticipating it.

Also, best of luck with that portfolio for the fight against the Breed Specific Legistlation. I've been reading about that stuff through your and Iron Raptor's LJs and I'm cheering you guys on. It's really unfortunate what's going on with all that.,

I will do my best, but I can't guarantee anything, as your badge was a Gift, and Commissions take precedence. O__x Toss your mailing address to my e-mail though, just in case I am able to get it out. I have a bunch of packages planned to go out in the mail on the 6th of November, so I'll see if I can include yours in there. :)

I'm sorry if I'm making it feel like I'm pressuring you. :( I honestly have no idea what's going on with your schedules and stuff like that, so I didn't know you were that backed up. My bad. :( I'm so so sorry. :( *Feels bad*

Eeee... *blush* Thanks! And I totally love you LJ Icon. ;)

Oh! Also, I made a badge for you, but couldn't find you at AC!!!

Goldenwolf Badge

Send me your mailing address and I can mail it to you, unless you'll be at next year's Anthrocon, and I can just give it to you then? :)

So, do you think you might have time to make a quick submission to my Bad Dogs Portfolio? :-D I will make an official notice for it in about a month from now. Just finding out which artists would have the interest/time for it.

Well it's good to hear from ya at least :). I'd been wondering how things were for you out there. I'd mostly taken a hiatus from most things internet the past several months. I just haven't had a lot of time lately.

I hope everything's going alright for ya out there. And where abouts in BC? Seems to be a lot of people moving in that direction these days.

I will definitely send you a scan of your badge before I mail it off to you, once I'm done coloring it. :-P Thanks for being so very patient!! And nice Jen Seng icon. ;) I'd like to get one made by her one of these days.

Hihi! When did you last send me an e-mail...? And to which e-mail address? If you would, please send me your badge description, along with any reference drawings you have, to: wlfdog@jessie-t-wolf.com and also send a carbon copy to wlfdog@hotmail.com just in case. I'll send you an e-mail back from one of those, letting you know if I got it. Sorry about the long wait! I'll be wrapping up all commissions by March, though, so yours can be drawn out and mailed to you by sometime in February. Thank you for your patience! :)
