Art Year 2016 is going to be a busy one. I have a huge number of personal projects which I plan to complete this year, and also a couple of large commissions to finish. Once these commissions are complete, I do not plan to accept any more commissions or trades this year. Possibly not in 2017, either.

My reasons are twofold: First, I really do want to get my own projects done. They've been languishing for years, literally.

Second: I'm extremely tired of getting burned by people who disappear partway through a project, or once the project is finished, and fail to pay me for the work I've done. That happened several times last year, and I don't need that kind of stress in my life.


My Dragon Adventure coloring book is available on Amazon: Dragon Adventure Coloring Book
Kaleidoscopia Dragon Adventure by rachaelm5 


Commissions: Closed for 2016.
Trades:  Closed for 2016.
Requests:  I do not do requests or freebies at all; I simply do not have time. 
Charity: I rarely do charity art; please DO NOT ASK. I'll choose my own causes to support.
Kiribans:  None at this time.

The Dastardly Project List

:star:  Commissions and Trades
:bulletgreen: Note: These items were already underway before 2016 rolled around. They will all be completed, but no new ones will be accepted.

:iconjadethepredator: Trade: Two of her characters in dramatic poses, wielding fire. In progress.
:bulletred:  Commission: A Stone Dragon "rainbow" diptych, with dragons based on the Chinese zodiac, for Mom.  BIG.    Part 1 done; Part 2 in progress.
:bulletred: Three projects for Dave, an old friend from college days. In progress.

:bulletgreen: The waiting list is not gone; it simply will not be included in any journal entry util such time as I decide that I'm ready to do art trades again.
