Today Aunna had a meeting with her manager about her suspension with her union representative there doing what he's supposed to do...representing her and making sure she keeps her job. And he did. We're not fucked! We're going to be okay! She's still looking for a new and better job and I am still looking as well, but I am happy to say that the issue fixed its self partly so quickly! Now we are still going to fight the discrimination from her manager, but thankfully Aunna can keep her job while we do that.
I'm still taking commissions, at those prices. (And if something you want is too much but you want something and we talk a lot, I will be willing to make a deal. Just message me.) I'm now using my commissions for saving up for a new tablet like I originally wanted to with my new price changes, but then on Tuesday night we had the possible lost of job drama change those plans.
Speaking of Tuesday night, I do still plan to share with you how my first teaching session went, but I will Saturday night since in the morning/afternoon I am taking the boys all out to the Denver Art Museum with my best friend, Claire.
Some interesting news... there is a slim chance that my art will be used for something that Century Link is doing. Nothing public, but something for the employees (my dad is a project manager at Century Link) and his boss asked for a logo/poster thing and my dad asked me to draw something up. (which I did) I won't know if they are going to use it until probably next week but my dad told me if they do he will make sure I will be paid for my work. No idea how much...I don't even know how much I should ask for but there's that.
I guess this is a good time to say that the children's book I was going to illustrate isn't happening any more... but so be it.
But...now back to drawing. I'm working on something old that I forgot I started, and I really like it so far. I should be working on something my dad commissioned from me. (Family Portrait...it's kinda daunting to say the least x.x) and last night my best friend commissioned something from me and I have some sketches I promised my brother who I bet wouldn't eat a hot wing (he can't even handle pepper, so this was a big deal) that if he ate it I would draw something for him. So I have his super hero characters to draw.
Phew... why am I asking for commissions? Oh yeah, so I can replace this breaking down tablet.
I'm trying to be cheerful because Aunna is keeping her job, but it's still hard. This month has been emotionally draining to say the very least and I feel like I'm finally getting back into an art groove which I hope means I'm getting out of my depression and into a manic state. I'm not sleeping, like...at all...and that's usually a sign.
I'll find some sort of constant happiness soon, won't I?
