Why do I keep missing news and updates from you on social media?
The social media have evolved in such a way that they no longer serve all of the creators’ content to all of their followers, which means you are likely to not get a lot of my posts in your feed.
To make sure you don’t miss any important news or updates from me, besides following me on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), be sure to subscribe to my newsletter, which is 100% guaranteed to reach you (if you whitelist my email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
In addition, I send out news and updates to my newsletter subscribers several hours before I post them on social media, so if I have any kind of limited-supply or limited-time offer going on, you’ll be among the first to know about it.
Do you have merch for sale?
I sure do! Please check out my Redbubble store for all of my currently available merch, and be sure to follow me on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and subscribe to my newsletter to get notified when new designs will be hitting the shelves!
Do you take requests?
I do not take unsolicited requests. I do, however, do art raffles occasionally, so be sure to follow me on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and subscribe to my newsletter to get updated on when they are happening.
Are you open for commissions?
You can check out my commission status on my Commissions page. If I happen to be closed for commissions, you can follow me on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and subscribe to my newsletter for updates on when I will be open for commissions again.
What are your rates?

I saw an artist with an art style and/or motifs similar to yours.
This is perfectly normal. Nobody can be 100% original. The only thing original about one’s art is the way they combine existing elements, and even then, people can end up with similar preferences and styles.
Either I was inspired by them, they were inspired by me, or we were both inspired by someone/something else.
Unless they are directly tracing over my art and posting it as they own, you don’t have to bring it to my attention.
Why does your [insert product/service name] cost as much as it does?
Firstly, artists are not individuals. Regardless of whether they work alone or not, they are, in fact, businesses, and like any business, they must also account for overhead costs, taxes, etc. when deciding on how much to price their products/services in order to be able to make a profit.
Secondly, art is a luxury, not a necessity. You wouldn’t be considering buying a designer handbag if you didn’t have the money for it, and you wouldn’t go into a Gucci store to argue with the staff about their price tags.
Finally, I believe that artists should be able to and allowed to earn more than the minimum wage.
If you feel that my services are inappropriately priced or you cannot afford them, please consider commissioning a different artist or spending that money on something that may be more essential to you than art at this point in time.
Which tools do you use?
I make all my art in Clip Studio Paint using the XP-Pen Artist 15.6Pro Graphics Display.
I have a question that’s not covered here.
