Hey all! Good god, it's been a little over half a year since I've posted a new journal :XD: I promise I'm not dead, but writing and tumblr have greatly diminished my time here on DA. I get on when I can, but usually just to answer messages and check out new art submissions.

Still haven't forgotten about you guys though! Hopefully this summer I'll get to start working on some crafts again, and maybe even something to put up in my long since forgotten Etsy shop. I still need to carve a few more pendants before posting them, but so far so good. 

Basically this is just a "hey I'm not gone and forgotten" message. I'll update in a few more days when I have something more relevant to add to the journal board. 

For those who would like to follow me on tumblr (I'm far more active on there with both artwork and writing) feel free to pop on over and bug me.

I am currently taking commissions. Message me for information.

If you are interested in getting a custom piece of artwork designed by me feel free to message me at any time. I promise I'll get back to your notes as soon as possible, but if I'm a little slow please don't take it as a cold shoulder. Now for a little FAQ.

Q: Does your Island/Polynesian/Maori art have significant meaning?

:bulletred: No. All the art I do in the Oceania style is purely for aesthetic purposes and is not connected to any tribe or peoples. It is purely Kirituhi art.

Q. Is any of your art free for the taking?

:bulletred: NO! None of my art is free to just walk off with. I put a lot of effort into my designs and the only reason I'm here on DA is to get my name out into the world. That doesn't mean people can take my work and paint it onto their skin without permission or paying first. I'm sorry, but that's the way of it.

Q. How much do your commissions cost?

:bulletred: Most commissions will cost $50.

Q. How do you want to be payed?

:bulletred: In money of course! :XD: But seriously, I work only through PayPal and would like payment up front. I am willing do a preliminary sketch before payment is sent, but I must be payed before I start inking or detailing anything.

Q. Do you do anything in color and does it cost more?

:bulletred: I am willing to do colored pieces but if it calls for intricate coloring I may have to drop the commission. Any tattoo/tribal design with color WILL cost more depending on the difficulty.

Q. Do you do commission with your Alphabet Photography or custom Mighty Muggs?

:bulletred: I do! =D Please PM me for more information

Q. Do you do custom names and words in Gallifreyan circle script?

:bulletred: I do indeed. If you are interested in a custom circle script, message me and I'll explain how it works and what you should expect to find. I will also translate your name or word under the script or under each letter depending on what you want.

Q. How long does a commission take?

:bulletred: It all depends. Most of the time I can crank out a tattoo piece in about two days, but if I have class or a heavy work load it might take a little longer. Safe to say, if you commission something from me expect to see the finished product in about two weeks.

Q. Do you trade art as payment?

:bulletred: That depends a lot on the artist wanting to trade. I would prefer to be payed in cash, but I'm willing to discuss trades to a certain extent.

If I haven't answered any questions you have with this little Q&A please feel free to message me and ask. I won't bite you to hard ;)

When I finished reading your most recent chapter of stag and the maiden I nearly broke my computer when I didn't see a next button. It was so painful to learn that I'm going to need to wait until your next chapter is finished, then the next and the next. 

If this could be published as a book I'd buy it just so I could keep it and reread it for whenever )Stupid copyright laws)

I'd ask you to publish again soon, but I don't want you to rush it and stifle what I'm sure will be another brilliant chapter to a fantastic story.

:XD: Well, I'm certainly glad you're enjoying the read thus far! My next update is scheduled for next Friday or Saturday depending on how finals go. If you aren't on tumblr already, I'm more active there than I am here and do sneak peeks of upcoming chapters as they are written.
