Well, I’ve been given the go ahead by family to have a tiny house on their property.  I just need to raise the money for it as I’m still unemployed and looking post college.

My initial plan was just an art studio in a shed (likely 12’x16’), but it was also a you can do as you like sort of thing.  They actually liked the idea of a tiny house as we’d been discussing the economy, tiny houses, and alternative means of living in a society where the unemployment rate of young people is pretty high.

So with that being said, I’m not really sure if I will turn it into a full fledged tiny house, but I am going with the most sensible (in terms of finances and feasibility for me) option which is as I mentioned before, a shed.  

I was thinking of starting up a go fund me, but I don’t like just asking for money and I don’t know if I want to put all of my business out there. Instead, I’ll put out there that I’m taking art commissions.  I’m running them at a discounted rate from what I usually charge.  Initially they were just for an event that I wanted to go to next month as well as to fund a much needed new laptop, but I may extend my own deadline and add the Tiny House to it as well.

My rates are as follows for both digital and traditional “real” media art;

1 figure per drawing: $25 

2 figures per drawing: $35

Because I know that paintings may be wanted, I’ll go with a flat rate for those as well.

small: $15 4”x 6” or 5”x 8”

medium: $30-$50 depending on complexity 8.5”x 11” 9”x 12”

(Painting sizes varies due to availability of paper on hand, sorry for the inconvenience.)

I accept payment via paypal and postal money orders in US funds.  US shipping is free.  In order to get a commission, please either note me here or e-mail me at gothicsugarart at hellokitty dot com.

I’ve got 51 positive feedback on ebay for those who need references and have been selling online off and on since 2000 as an artist.

Tiny Luxury Cabin

I think this is a wonderful idea for a design especially in the bathroom.  This one is 200 sq ft at 10’x20’. 

The post has a few ideas from the original blogger as well as a link to 44 storage ideas, of which quite a few are repetitive and some are just common sense.  However, I liked a few of them and thought I’d share what I found.
