GRRRRRRR! - Jessie T. Wolf
Hey! I'm a wolfdog hybrid, right? So I'm wondering, maybe the dog part of me has some Pit Bull in there or something. I definitely have that big quality of stubborn unwillingness to give up without a fight, that's for damn sure.
Still battling with the Lender who apparently "wants" to finance our mortgage. The story has changed now. They won't accept Tim as an applicant (because he's only filed his taxes in the U.S., and not in Canada) but they WILL accept me. The catch is, since I've only been in the 3D film industry for one year, I have to somehow prove to them that I've been doing freelance work as an artist for X amount of previous years.
So I am sending out e-mails to anyone I can think of, who I've done commissions/portfolios/murals/commercial works for in the last few years, who can write something on official letterhead stating that I did artwork for them.
Gods, this is like running a seemingly never-ending race... We had to ask for an extension on our conditional contract because it was going to be up tomorrow. We now have an extension until Thursday, to get our financing finalized. If the Lender still can't make up his mind by that time, it's looking very probable that Tim and I will end up having to move to Michigan.
I will let everyone know what happens... whenever we know what is happening.
Need to relax and watch a movie now.
Current Mood: exhausted
Best of luck to you two.

Right now is a doubleplusungood time to be trying to get a loan/mortgage, or to remortgage if your current fixed-rate period is coming to an end.
Hope you manage to work something out though!
That all sounds so utterly fucked up.
Any chance of getting a "second opinion" from a different Lender...? >_>

I would love to get a second opinion. Unfortunately, this is maybe the only Lender out there, who will actually approve us for the 5% down we need, if I can prove to them that I've been doing work as an artist for that past few years. All of the other Lenders want 10-15% for a down-payment, which Tim and I just can't afford. :/
I really hope that getting these letters to them will help, and that they won't change their mind again, and suddenly require something more from us. -___-
I'm going through a refi myself, and I very much feel your pain. I can't remember exactly how long ago I commissioned that pic of me and Pozie from you, but I'd be happy to write you something official-looking! =D

Oooohhh... would you, please?? That would be a big help! If you can make it sound all professional-like, me having done character design work for you. I think I did that piece for you in 2005... didn't I write the date down on the actual piece? If there is no date, just say it was done in 2005 - the Lender needs to see that I've been working as an artist for 2 or more years.
Also, I wonder... if it would be beneficial to mention that you worked with me on/contributed to the Colors of Canines Fund-raiser Art Portfolio, for the Dog Legislation Council of Canada? That's definitely commercial! I wrote to the DLCC President, and she says she will write me something on official letterhead for that, but I don't think it could hurt to have someone else mention the portfolio as well.
Thanks, Fire!! If you need to send me a word document (something that is compatible with Windows XP, or Open Office...) can you please e-mail it to:
jessica.albee @ lifelineanimation.com (without the spaces, obviously...). Oh, also, my full name to address in the letter is Jessica Maia Albee.
Thank you, thank you! *hug!*
I'll be happy to write them in the name of Eurofurence e.V. whatever you like, if that helps :)

Please?? I don't think I've done any artwork for you yet... I know I've done Gift art for Tani. Maybe you could mention about the Colors of Canines CD Art Portfolio, (fund-raiser for the Dog Legislation Council of Canada) that you guys helped sell copies at, at EF last year, since that would be considered commercial work? Also, maybe mentioning that I will be doing a "seminar" on Special Effects Makeup for your convention, in Germany this fall... that might help!
Something on official Eurofurence letterhead would be very good! If you need to send any document, can you please send it to my jessica.albee @ lifelineanimation.com e-mail (without the spaces)? And my full name, to address in the letter, is Jessica Maia Albee.
Thank you very much, Cheetah!! *HUG!*

I just got your message, and Tim and I have written up a letter for you. I tried to e-mail it back to the address you sent your message from, but it bounced back to me as "Message Delivery Failure" so I sent the attachment to your Chairman @ Eurofurence e-mail.
Please let me know if you get it successfully?
Thank you once again!
Knock some sense into them!! ^.^ BC misses you two very much
You're too puny and jewish and black to be a pitbull.

Hey, a well-bred American Pit Bull Terrier only weighs about35-40lbs, and I'm a whopping 90lbs! X-D And it's the German Shepherd part of me that's Jewish. ;) Pit Bulls can be totally Black!! :-P

Yep! A mutt for sure, and a proud one at that. ;)
But really, it was kind of a joke, about which dog breed I am supposedly mixed with. I am called Jessie T. "Wolf" but I have more domestic dog qualities in me than wolf qualities. I'd like to think that I am a Wolf/German Shepherd Dog hybrid, but my mate likes to tease me (jokingly) that I am really more like a "pit bull". And although wolves and dogs are part of the same species, (being canines and all) wolves and bull-breeds have their distinct differences. A Husky or Malamute is more similar to a wolf, than a bulldog is.
