Help my friends out with their wedding and get some cheap art!

Hey guys! You might have seen me talk about a wedding I’m planning to attend in a couple of weeks. This wedding is for a dear friend of mine and her fiance, both of whom I’ve known for years and have been together for 9 years this August.

They’ve had to put off their wedding repeatedly due to financial reasons and even though the ball is rolling now, there’s still stuff to cover and a honeymoon to take. 

Her family has started a GoFundMe to help cover a little bit more of the cost and make it easier on them, and I’d love it if you guys could give them a little help. In return, I’ve knocked down my commissions!

In honor of the date, August 9th, which is also their anniversary, a $9 donation to the campaign nets you a full-colored headshot! These normally run $12 during sales, so that’s pretty cool. 

Everything else is going to be $3 off! (9/3. 9 is divisible by 3.) That makes sketches $5, lineart $12, flats/grayscales $17, and full-color $22.

Just donate according to the commission tier you would like and email me a copy of your receipt to syldoran@gmail.com. I will then contact you to ask for your commission details. 

Please help my friends out!

📖 Synopsis:
When a bestselling debut novel from mysterious author J.Colby becomes the literary event of the year, Emiline reads it reluctantly. As an adjunct writing instructor at UC San Diego with her own stalled literary career and a bumpy long-term relationship, Emiline isn’t thrilled to celebrate the accomplishments of a young and gifted writer.

Yet from the very first page, Emiline is entranced by the story of Emerson and Jackson, two childhood best friends who fall in love and dream of a better life beyond the long dirt road that winds through their impoverished town in rural Ohio.

That’s because the novel is patterned on Emiline’s own dark and desperate childhood, which means that “J. Colby” must be Jase: the best friend and first love she hasn’t seen in over a decade. Far from being flattered that he wrote the novel from her perspective, Emiline is furious that he co-opted her painful past and took some dramatic creative liberties with the ending.

The only way she can put her mind at ease is to find and confront “J. Colby,” but is she prepared to learn the truth behind the fiction?

Next year, on August 9th, will mark the 20th anniversary of the Bokujou Monogatari series in Japan.

It was August 9th, 1996 that the first game launched on the Super Famicom (Super Nintendo elsewhere) and kickstarted a franchise that to this day still stands as the most popular video game series about growing vegetables and raising cattle.

It would be really neat if the fan base all joined together in a year-long celebration of all things Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons next year, starting on the 1st of January. 

Thoughts?
