ask-disciple-kyouko asked: If you think about it, aren't commissions pretty much one of the highest forms of praise? "I like your art so much that I'm willing to give you the money that I worked my ass off for in a job that I despise, just so that I can claim that this one thing you made has been made for me."
Sometimes I like to think so! Other times I feel like they commissioned me because I happened to be open and I can act as their mouthpiece. You’d be surprised at the kind of notes and descriptions I get 9___9 I don’t think this is a unique experience for me though, lots of artists get weird ass commissioners.
ALTHOUGH, on the whole, my commissioners are beautiful, gracious and totally awesome. I’ve been very fortunate.
