marimojinguuji:

Hello friends! My name is Sasha, and I need a lot of help right now!

I’ve been living in Japan for a little over three months, and it has become apparent that it is impossible for me to continue taking public transportation to get to and from work. I live in Anan, and I work in Tokushima. In order to get to work by 12:00, I have to be at the train station at 9:17, because the trains only arrive once every hour, and the buses do as well. However, the trains and buses aren’t even close to synchronized, so after getting off the train in Tokushima, I have to wait at least 40 to 50 minutes for the bus to arrive.

This has proven to be a serious financial struggle for me as well, as transportation costs go up to around $200 monthly. Even though my company reimburses the transportation fees, the money still comes from my pocket. 

Here’s where you all come in!

I have a couple who has told me they would be happy to sell me their car. They would like me to pay only $2500 for it, since it is an older Toyota model (a Toyota Yaris Verso to be exact). I was initially able to provide the funds because of the money I’d been given to survive until I’d gotten my next paycheck. However, I was unable to purchase anything for myself due to issues with my work visa (which are all cleared up now!) This leads me to having hardly any money to be able to save up due to having to try and set everything up at home all at once.

The other $2000 will go towards getting me to a driving school, as getting a license in Japan is notoriously difficult if you don’t have one from the United States. I had a permit in the US, but never wound up getting my license because public transportation in Oregon was fantastic. 

I plan on either the Anan Driving School or the Minami Komatsushima Driving School. The websites can be found here:
Anan:  http://www.anan-ds.co.jp/teigaku.html
Komatsushima:  http://www.komatsushima.jp/hutuusya-campaign/hutuusya-campaign.html#hispeed

The Komatsushima school would be most preferable, as it will have me with a license within one month. However, the Anan school is much closer to where I live. 

Normally, I would go to get a loan for this sort of thing. However, no place I’ve been will allow me to take out a loan because the car is in Japan. If even I am able to raise enough to help me for the car, that would be enough to make me happy. I am desperately in need of another form of transportation, because I am unable to get enough sleep to get to work by the time I come home. 

I love my job, and the travel time is the only significant amount of stress within it. If I can at least eliminate the travel aspect, it would take a tremendous weight off of my shoulders.
Thank you for your time.

Hey guys, I’ve got a trip coming up that I’d like to raise a little money for!

If you like my work and would be down with commissioning me, that’d be pretty dang rad. Feel free to shoot me a tumblr ask with what you’d like (please be sure to specify what type of piece you’d like and give a detailed description of the sort of content you want.) Once we’ve got that sorted, I’ll whip up a sketch and send it over for your approval. Assuming you want ink or color, payment will be due once you’ve given the go-ahead for me to proceed with finishing it. 

However, if it’s a sketch you’re commissioning me for, please pay up front. 

I also do comics! 

If you’re interested in that, there’s a bit more information over here

As you may have noticed, I’m primarily a NSFW artist. However, clean stuff is absolutely fine as I love working on both! The content I will NOT draw is very standard, but if you’re unsure, please feel free to ask.

ONE TWEET. THIS FIT IN ONE TWEET. IF YOU FUCK IT UP YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE.

So much of this. An apology is NOT “I’m sorry BUT here’s why I’m totally in the right and think I did nothing wrong.”

It is very sad to me that some people are so intent on leaving their mark on the world that they don’t care if that mark is a scar.

Hey everybody! Its exactly as you see it: I’m opening commissions.  If you want one, message me either here, or shoot me an email at skipperwing@gmail.com com so we can discuss things!  Preferred method of payment is currently paypal, though that is subject to change.
When messaging, please include a description of what you want:
-dimensions (ex: 11 in x 17 in for a poster)
-Character, or Characters (ex: Mario)
-Character action (ex: Mario standing like a badass)
-Location (ex: Blank-I mean, “Void between worlds)
EDIT (thanks to my buddy @rambozus, for asking for clarification)
Just to be clear, You get a maximum of four characters under the base cost. Any more adds on an extra amount detailed under the type of illustration.  So, for example, a 5th character in a pencil sketch would be an extra $10, a 6th character would be an extra $10 on top of that ($20 extra for those of you keeping track at home), and so on and so forth.  Hope that’s clear!
