need to paint things for Denver comic Con May 2015

Taks Characters || TaksArt on Facebook


Guys, i'm shaving my head again this year. March 7th is the day I go bald for childhood cancer research. 

Normally I do fundraising linked with various commission types. I am super swamped with preparation for Denver comic con in May though.

If I took commission orders for donations, but with the warning that the artwork most likely would not be completed until after DCC (end of may), would anybody still be interested in donating/ordering?

I'd like your feedback :)…
Original Paintings in my Etsy store that were created before 2014 are now as much as 50% off.

Please consider helping me make space for a bright new 2015 full of NEW artwork.

I am willing to work with you on pricing of items, especially in trade for original traditional artworks. However, please don't take offense if I turn down your offer. I love collecting originals, but can be a little picky in the kind of art I want to display around my home ^^
Goodbye old friend.
Why must I keep living now that I've lost you.
Goodbyepen by TaksArt

Seriously. I feel like someone just chopped off my arm.... you've always been there, helping me express myself and make things for other people...

suuuure i've got traditional still's not the same.. paintbrushes come and go (especially the way I abuse them).... but you.. You were with me through some pretty horrible times...

Funeral will be held tomorrow at noon, followed by a small reception. bring snacks.

The last picture he ever completed- a sketchy commission for Cova
Cova3tag by TaksArt

The last picture he started- a couple of lines that were going to be a stardust sphynx for :iconvaiil: ...not even enough to be worth showing :c

I've messaged all of my commissioners. If i missed you, and you see this, let me know.
I'm offering refunds to anyone who doesn't want to wait an indefinite amount of time while I try to figure out what to do about this.

Not sure I can just buy a new stylus (I've got a pretty old Intuos, not sure the new pens work with the old ones?)

Not sure I want to dig into my house savings account to buy a new Intuos when I need a new computer, a windshield, and ..well a house still....

silver lining- i now know what the inside of an intuos pen looks like. 
It looks like emptiness and pain...which is what i feel.
Checking out this new Activity feed thing! Seems pretty cool!
