Look, folks. I do my absolute best to be friendly to people online, especially those who are friendly to me. But I would like to make something clear.
Please do not mistake friendliness and openness for generosity. I am a professional artist and quite frankly cannot afford to be generous with my art. It is, after all, my trade.
The fact of the matter is that I cannot and will not take requests. I have said so countless times. I know some of you ask very nicely, but while I do appreciate the politeness, the answer is unfortunately still “no.” Repeated requests will only have the effect of making me more staunch (and probably annoyed) in that response.
I sincerely, sincerely appreciate that folks enjoy my art. Nothing brings me more happiness than that. But I ask that you please respect my boundaries here. “No” means “no.”
