Hurricane Harvey Relief through Sticky Note Art

UPDATE! For the month of September 2017, together we raised $1285 in Post-It Note art sales to benefit relief for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Donations of $642.50 have been made to The Red Cross and Samaritan’s Purse Hurricane Relief funds.
My thanks to ALL of you who were able to purchase my September Post-It art pieces. And thanks to all who also inquired about purchasing a piece each time and day a new one posted. I appreciate everyone’s support for Hurricane relief as well as my art.
Next up! I am going to be auctioning off 2 sketch cover illustrations with proceeds going to benefit those affected by the Mexico earthquake and the Puerto Rico hurricane. Stay tuned to my site and social media for updates!
Thanks again and God bless!
Todd


I want to do what I can to help with the Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts.
100% of the proceeds from the sales on my Sticky Note art posted for September 2017 will be divided up to go to the following charities to benefit those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
American Red Cross
Samaritan’s Purse

How to purchase a Sticky Note illustration:
Follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook. When a new Sticky Note illustration posts during September 2017, first email in to me at mail@wildguard.com gets first shot at buying.
If the first person cannot complete the sale, the next email in, in the order emails are received, gets the next opportunity to buy. This process continues until that specific Sticky note art is sold.
Due to the number of emails that may come in for any given Sticky Note art, you may not receive a reply unless you are the first email in or next person to have an opportunity to buy that specific Sticky Note art.
Prices vary depending on the complexity and detail of art in the Sticky Note. Range has been $40-$100. But average has been around $50-$60.

Thanks for your participation in helping those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

COMMISSIONED ART
Here are my current convention commission prices/options and how it works for me during the weekend. (These are not my studio commission prices!)
I will be taking a new commission list at the beginning of each day of the con.
The list has a limited number of spots (which vary in number at each con depending on size of con, demand, and my other convention responsibilities for that day) so hit my table early to make sure you get on the list. My list can fill up fast!

Some cons offer VIP or advanced ticket entry allowing certain attendees onto the con floor an hour before general admission. In these cases, I allow for limited spots for VIP/advance ticket holders AND limited spots for general admission attendees each day.
I only allow ONE exhibitor badge holder (or “in the con before show opens” spot whether it be exhibitor, artist alley, pro, press, VIP or general attendee) on my list each day. The other spots are reserved for the VIP and general admission attendees after the show opens.
Be sure to research your convention’s entry guidelines and locations to make sure you’re in the right spot at the right time for expedient entry.

Due to my current work
schedule, I may only be able to take 3 or 4 commissions each day.

Convention Commission specs (single character*):
