Donation Art Update!

Just a post to update the status on a few things.  One more big TF-themed Donation Piece currently in the works from a very talented artist - one sample pic was previously posted.

I appreciate the support of all you folks out there - and I know for a fact that the artists whose art you contribute to appreciate it as well.

With that in mind, I'm announcing a small update in terms of pricing.  My work has been pretty busy lately and will only getting busier - for at least the next few months.  I'll be out of town and away from my computer for multiple extended periods (beginning this next week) with very limited access - and most likely unable to respond to emails much of the time.  And consequently unable to maintain my goal of 12-24 hours from donation to art emails.

That said, I don't want this schedule to adversely affect the artists I'm trying to support.  So I've worked out another model.  When I am about to leave town, I'll post an update on the Donation Art page announcing it.  For as long as the announcement is posted on my page, the following pricing scheme will be in effect:

Any one project - $3
Any two projects - $5
Any three projects - $7.50
All four projects - $10

When I remove the announcement, prices will go back to their normal rates.

With this pricing scheme - each artist will still receive the same dollar amount they would have received from a normal donation - I will be taking the hit for fees, etc out of my portion due to my inconvenient work schedule.

I would encourage everyone out there to take advantage of this new breakdown - it's a great opportunity to complete your collection of excellent art at my expense ;p


  1. I'm not sure I understand: is this article the announcement (meaning the low prices are now in effect) or do we have to wait until it's posted on the Donation page?
    Great news, I might spring for one soon...

  2. The price change is only / will only be in effect when there is a specific announcement posted on the actual Donation Art page - at the bottom right above the paypal button. There will also be a date update at the top of the page whenever I've changed something on the page.
