December 2018 Newsletter

Howdy!

Wishing you and yours a good holiday season, whether or not you will be celebrating this year. Everybody deserves to be comfortable and well fed, no?

I will be closing commissions until May 1st, 2019. It is that time of year when the continuing education classes for my job are open and I have to study for the six tests I have to pass to stay employed. Between family, holidays, and school, I’m not even going to have enough time to sleep regularly.

Hope to hear from you soon! Be safe!

Question and Answer Spotlight

Q: “What is a fixative?”

A: In short, varnish. Similar to the stuff woodworkers put on their products to protect the wood or to the clearcoat women put on their nails. Artistic fixative comes in a spraycan to keep from drenching the paper and is available in varying levels of matte and glossiness.

Standard Available Sizes:

4″x6″ – 5″x7″ – 8″x10″ – 9″x12″ – 11″x14″ – 14″x17″ – 16″x20″ – 18″x24″

Question and Answer Spotlight

Q: “What kind of tablet do you use?”

A: From 2004 to 2011 I used a Wacom Graphire 4. After it died I started using a Wacom Intuos 2. I miss my Graphire 4. It had buttons I could program to Save and Undo. The Intuos 2 has eight on there somewhere you have to tap with the stylus and it’s terribly annoying. I’m looking forward to buying a different model some day. Maybe a Huion.

New JAD Short Story: The Calling Mountain Winds

 

The Calling Mountain Winds is a short story from Just Another Day that focuses on a human for a change.

Colby Anser is from a quiet little village in the shadow of the Arnthian mountains and at the edge of a thick forest that piques his curiosity. His life changes the day his mother is believed to be possessed by a water demon.

It will be released in monthly segments on Ko-fi: ko-fi.com/AsheSkyler

 

October 2018 Newsletter

Howdy!

Autumn is here! The weather is cooling, the leaves are changing, the harvest arts and crafts shows are going on, and yummy food is just around the corner. This is my favorite season.

Hope to hear from you soon! Be safe!

Question and Answer Spotlight

Q: “Are there any extra charges?”

A: If you mean hidden fees or charges for multiple subjects or complexity of background items, then no. I do have separate charges per type of artwork, such as a simple human or animal portrait, a house portrait, and conceptual or design work. I do charge a convenience fee for ordering from third-party websites such as Etsy.

September 2018 Newsletter

Howdy!

While still technically summer, the air has taken a wonderful turn for marginally cooler weather. Our grapes and muscadines are getting good and ripe too. And premature pecans smack me on the head when I least expect it. Sometimes I think that old pecan tree doesn’t like me that much.

Hope to hear from you soon! Be safe!

Question and Answer Spotlight

Q: “Can there be two or more people/animals/subjects in one drawing?”

A: Yes, but I recommend keeping the size of the paper in mind. If you try to cram ten people onto a 4″x6″, they’re just going to be glorified stick figures.

Standard Available Sizes:

4″x6″ – 5″x7″ – 8″x10″ – 9″x12″ – 11″x14″ – 14″x17″ – 16″x20″ – 18″x24″

August 2018 Newsletter

Howdy!

How about those dog days of summer, eh? Time to fry some young’uns rears with plastic school bus seats! I think that’s what I dreaded the most during my back-to-school bus days. Those bus seats were not very user friendly. Whose bright idea was it to send kids to school during the summer anyway? My oldest will be going to school this year, so I’ll be sewing some extra protection into his shorts, haha.

I now have an Instagram account! It’s much quicker and easier to post art updates there than on other social websites, so come visit me if you want early peaks.

Hope to hear from you soon! Be safe!

Question and Answer Spotlight

Q: “I’m in a hurry, how fast can you finish for me?”

A: That thoroughly depends on how many people are in line before you and what all I have going on in my life at the time. A standard bust portrait of one person can take 4-6 hours minimum and I could finish that in a day (or 2-3 evenings if my seasonal/day job is in) if there aren’t too many changes to be made. So under ideal conditions, it could be out the door within three days.

Standard Available Sizes:

4″x6″ – 5″x7″ – 8″x10″ – 9″x12″ – 11″x14″ – 14″x17″ – 16″x20″ – 18″x24″

July 2018 Newsletter

Howdy!

I am tentatively stepping back into the commission pool. Life is still chaotic and there is lots of paperwork left to do, but I am accepting orders again.

Summer has arrived in full swing! Sticky heat, pool parties, lightning bugs, and all. And I guess for our southern hemisphere friends winter is doing the same. Whichever end of the globe you’re from, I hope you’re having little trouble regulating the temperature in your home.

Hope to hear from you soon! Be safe!

A: They remain stored in your account folder on my hard drive should I ever need to reference it for one of your future orders. I do not repost them to my website or on other websites and I do not use them to create other works without your consent.
