I'm making this post to reiterate my 'open' status for commissions.
It's not like I wasn't already open, as I've had a commission widget open for quite a while down below on my profile page, but this is a little different.
I've decided to handle all my commission work for the time being, through Elance.com. I've gotten my first commission through the site, and couldn't be happier with the way the site structures itself to take a lot of the risk out of online freelancing for both parties (and let's face it, the Job Offers page on the forums here at DA are pretty much put a 'swim at your own risk' sign at the edge of a piranha-filled swamp. Don't get me started on the state of the Job Services page...). I haven't ever been able to get a single commission through DA, and have talked to several other good artists who also haven't and avoid using it entirely.
So please, if you're interested in hiring me (and I do want your business), drop by:
And we can set up a proper commission.
P.S. If anyone's curious as to what I look like in person, there's a rare online picture of me there. So there's that.
