balorkin has started a donation pool!
1,511 / 5,000
A donation appeal for the goal of getting a super-group feature for my beloved Motley Changelings-united. I also would love to be able to donate points as prizes for contests of this group.
I will surely give a lama badge to everyone who donates. ^^ And don't hesitate to look at my print shop, too! I will donate most of the sales volume to the group.

Hi folks!

Long time no see. I haven't had much time to draw in the past two years, so I didn't update a lot on DA. But now I am kinda back for now. Reasons below.

When I returned from Eurofurence, I hoped I could write a joyful journal about my time there soon after I worked off my overtime at the day job. But, after two weeks of said overtime, I was made redundant and lost my position. This is sad routine in the industry, but I have been lucky ever since, so this is the first time I experience this first-hand. 


Sad thing is sad, but life is life. I am a little in a pinch, here, as the 'season' is bad and I will probably have to be on the lookout for some months. Until a new opportunity comes up, I am returning to art as my bread-and-butter-job. I haven't done this since Uni, so some of my galleries are a little dusty. I will try to change that and update 

- Furaffinity (www.furaffinity.net/user/balor…)
- Weasyl (www.weasyl.com/~balorkin)
- Tumblr (balorkin.tumblr.com/)
- Deviantart (balorkin.deviantart.com/)
- Facebook (www.facebook.com/pages/Nigh...…)

in the next couple of days. I will also come around with some commission specials and after working off my couple of EF homework commissions, I will return to accepting full coloured pieces again.

I will probably revive my Etsy store and sell some originals. Some originals in my gallery are already marked for sale, so check them out, please, if you might. I have some swag as well that can be ordered from me directly or my Etsy store in the future. right now I am dealing with bureaucracy. I also had some vet bills, so that is that.

I originally planned to dive fully into my personal art project, my webcomic "A Fools Journey" when returning from EF, and I will keep it up. If you are interested in this project and want to support me, keep an eye out for journals and submissions about it as I am about to set up a new website for this project on which you will then be able to make donations to the cause. But for now, Commissions will come first, so if you are planning commissioning me, just watch out for my journals and openings here and on Twitter (twitter.com/baLOrKIn) or contact me directly with what you have in mind.

A note on witter: This is hands-down the most immediate way to keep updated on my art, commission status and whereabouts, so I cannot recommend following me there enough. Thanks for considering.

If you want to help in a different way, I would be humbled if you'd help promoting my art business and share my offers on your favorite platform. If you got a commission from me, before, refer me to your friends or comment on my work and let me know what you'd like to see from me in the future. It is all appreciated. I am also available for collabs or whatnot. Every little helps. =)

I tune out for now as it will take some time to update my online presence and go through my waiting list again. Next on the list are my EF customers
