Livestream until 7PM 9/19 (FRI)
Sorry for getting to you all so late...It's been an amazing weekend, but a terrible 24 hours. Been vomiting since 5am, and I lost my job.
OK. So shit has finally hit the fan. My boss made too many mistakes and we went bankrupt! There is potential with our current product that launched on Friday to help us get more money, but for the time being, I'm unemployed. OH GOODY! The programmers all found new jobs (as if they have to try in NYC lol), so even if we do get investor money, I doubt it would be a speedy revival...not that I want to go back. So all that money that I gained for this commission period that I was hoping to go straight into my savings, is now what I have to live off of. Here we go again.
So, bad news is that I'll be ultra stressed and struggling for money...again. Hopefully I now have the experience to bounce back quickly? Fingers crossed. Good news is that I will very much so be working through commissions a lot faster now. At least until I find a new job. Other good news is that I hate my boss, and now I don't have to see him anymore LOL.
Please, if you know someone who is looking for an artist, especially illustration or game/mobile design in NYC, please let me know ASAP.
First and foremost please take note of my calendar. It's located on my website, jitenshasw (dot) com, and you can access the calendar from any category.
To give me peace of mind, before I had lost my job, I decided I should set time aside for me so that I don't burn out like I usually do. This will be what I call my Permanent Schedule.> Permanent Schedule (Currently Inactive)
Monday, Wednesday and Friday - Off
Tuesday and Thursday Nights 7-10 PM
The asterisk** just means start or end times may change. Maybe I'm really tired and we need to end early, or I'm really pumped and I want to keep going. I might even want to start earlier some days. Keep your eyes peeled on my Calendar! I'll make sure the time is updated at least the night before.
OK, well, since I don't have a job now, this will be what I call my "Temporary Schedule" I'll pretty much be doing commissions all day long. If you are free, I might contact you to Livestream during the week if you requested Livestream time.> Temporary Schedule (Currently Active)
Monday through Friday 10AM~8PM**
In other livestream scheduling news, for people with large Livestream requests (10+ pieces, not vouchers, ART PIECES), I will give you a full day, more or less, depending on how big your lot is. For those of with a few Livestream pieces, you will still follow 3 pieces at a time rule, but I'll always make sure to bunch you up with other customers with a small amount of art pieces. The point of all this is to keep you from wasting as much of your time as possible by repeatedly coming to Livestreams.
Sketch Voucher Holders
OK, so I've FINALLY gone and checked everyone's Trello board. I took me literally almost 12 hours to read through everything >w< Holy crap! LOL! At least I got the business part done, now I can focus on the fun stuff >w<!!
If you open up your Trello and you have a 'thumbs up' sticker anywhere on your board, you are good to go. I've gone ahead and added notes to those who need to take some action. There is an alert sticker on your board, and you should have received some sort of notification. To respond back to me with your solution, please type in Jitensha

If you see ★★★ by your name, it's just so that I can see that you've opted in for Livestream. If you see !!!MISSING INFO!!! by your name...well that one's self explanatory
For those of you curious about a shift in the line, someone has bought a new figurine through my trade program and jumped to the front of the line
You are all more than welcome to join the program too
Still Want to Commission Me?
If you lucked out this year in getting a sketch off voucher, remember there are two other way to commission me without waiting until next year.
Option 1 - Meet me at this year's New York ComicCon and pay the commission in cash. I can meet you right outside the con if you lack a ticket.
Option 2 - Get involved in my Trade program. You purchase one of the figures below for me, you get the voucher prize, plus you skip the line!! Please contact me if you're interested in getting involved.
