that awkward “hey please pay me to make things” text post

So a freelance job I started and finished over a month ago has yet to pay me and probably never will. Long story short, this is what I get for trusting nonprofits I don’t know that well. In 2 weeks I’m moving across the country for grad school, and it’s not that I was depending on that money to make that move, but every little bit counts when you use a Buick Le Sabre to tug a UHaul. 

I make all sorts of cool things and want to make cool things for you.

I don’t charge much (I think my average commission is like $40?), I just want to make things before I go so I can earn a decent amount of cash money. I also don’t expect this to be very successful campaign, so I’d be happy to get only like 2-4 projects from this. 

Here’s what will happen: you can send an email to hello@neilmakesthings.com with what you want, we can discuss prices, then I’ll make a custom listing on my Square Market that you can make a deposit on. Once we get a finished project that we both like, I’ll make a second listing for the rest of the price of the commission. And when that gets paid, you’ll receive your painting/full digital file/print, depending on what you got.

Also: A lot of the old work on my website is for sale as well so feel free to holler at me for that stuff and we can figure out what it should cost. So yeah. Let’s have fun shall we? 

A very lost-in-thought @bowtiedwriter plays with my tummy in bed this morning before we headed out to the airport. You can tell he missed me already. And obviously I miss him a ton.

Bisexual as attraction to men and women is a heteronormative definition. 

Bisexual as attraction to same and different genders is the bisexual communities definition. 

When queer people say that bisexual reinforces a gender binary, tell them they sound like straight people.
