I am back in the shop with a faster internet connection - they moved the router for me! So, I'll be making art all day today.

Here is a post about art rates for the stream, and general information -

And here is a link to the stream -

Since yesterday's session was cut short, I'm carrying the special over to today. For 30 dollars, you get to name an animal, mythical or real, or a fantasy species like elf, etc, and I will roll up some stats and design a sword and sorcery adventurer character for you! Of course, you can are welcome to get other commissions in the stream - check out the first link above.

<b>Stream is done for the day!</b> Next stream will be on Monday!

ETA: wifi at the fleamarket has gone down, so I can't connect to the stream. I will be back if I can reconnect before 8, otherwise I will be back again tomorrow! Watch this space for more stream info! :)


Today's Art Stream is here -

I will be streaming with the sound off (talking with text via the chat box) until 8:30 PM PST.

See information about the streams, prices, etc. here -

Today's special is cartoon sword and sorcery characters, on a 7" x 10" page with no background, for $30. Name me an animal or fantasy species and I will roll up their stats and alignment, and create a character picture for you, and make up a backstory for them! If you'd like, I can draw non-extinct mammal sword and sorcery characters in the style of a new setting I've been working on, or draw any sort of critter you'd like!

I am also available to do other art in the stream, first come, first served. The link above has all the infos! Check it out, and spread the word! :)

My partner, my roommate, his service dog and my kitties are moving out at the end of the month. I'm editing this to account for updates as we get ready to move! We have leads on a new roommate, we are getting ready to sign the lease, and I am doing streams to help with the costs of the move. The situation is not dire, but while my partner and my roommate work on the other moving-matters, it's my job to make art to sell. So, here is my plan!

Between now and the 1st of July, I will be doing a number of livestream Art Parties, where I create art live in ink and watercolor. Each day will have a special theme, with an art deal on a certain type of picture or craft project just for that day. I can also create art for you on-demand with any theme you'd like. I will make separate posts each day I do a stream with the day's schedule and theme.

I will be able to several different sizes and types of art in the stream, with these prices:

icon - $10 - a 1.5" x 1.5" tiny picture of a you, your character or your pet's face with no background or a simple color background, scanned and set up as a userpic, and also mailed out to you.

inchie - $10 - this is a thing I just learned is... a thing. I will make you a 1" x 1" teeny tiny picture and cram as much detail in there as I can. I will even attempt a teeny tiny background with my teeny tiny tech pens.

tiny animal friend - $20 - tell me an animal, real or mythical, and a theme or element or what-have-you, and I will make you a ~2" x 3" drawing, which I'll cut out die-cut style, and put into a clear plastic sleeve to mail out to you.

art card w/out background - $20 - I'll make you 2.5" x 3.5" art card of whatever critter or character you'd like, without a background, mailed to you in a clear plastic sleeve.

art card with background - $30 - I'll make you a 2.5" x 3.5" art card with one character and a background, mailed to you in a clear plastic sleeve. I can also make you a character badge in this style, and include a card holder and clasp for an extra two dollars to cover the bubble mailer it will be sent out in.

character portrait - $60 - one character with no background on a 7" x 10" page, but with props or simple background elements, drawn for you on camera.

These prices include shipping within the US. If you're outside of the US, I do ask for the exact cost of shipping, which I can let you know when I take it to the post office.

Stream commissions will go into a stream queue, and I will draw them in a first-come, first-served order. If I'm unable to complete the queue that day, it's your choice if I bump it to the top of the next day's queue, or wait until you can next be around to watch it in the stream. Payment isn't required until the art is being drawn, and I can accept paypal and google wallet, both with as my email address. If you're not able to make the stream but would like a picture drawn that day, the same rates apply, just pop me an email with what you'd like and I'll let you know when you're on the queue.

Stream chat rules are pretty straightforward - please keep your language and subject matter PG, and no discussion of religion or politics. Be polite to folks. No role-playing. That's about it!

I am also available for commissions that will be drawn off-camera and added to my regular job queue. My prices for these are different because they're not drawn on-demand on camera. You can check out my commission rates with examples here -

If you would like to tip to help out with my money-earning quest, it would be greatly appreciated and help me to continue creating silly pictures to share. If sales and tips reach $1000 I will do a full work day of streaming where I take free requests for pencil sketches, on a first-come first-served basis, until I can art no more! I can't mail these out, but they will be scanned in and emailed to you!

If you have any questions or need to get in touch with me, you can contact me at or message me on twitter. I'm @thebluedjinni on there.
jayblanc did this digitally colored version of my minicomic, The Dragon's Gem, and you should check it out!

I was commissioned to make a set of bees for honey labels! This is pretty much the best thing. So, here are some bees! :D

I want to let you know that I'm doing better, today. And, I appreciate so much all the kind words yesterday. I am going to reply to all of you when I can - I am still processing. I haven't been able to find any more information or news about the person who died. I will keep looking.

I am putting this behind a cut, with a content warning that it involves a dead person.
