Buy art, save my hand! ($5 ink commissions!)

Seriously on that. My car radio is dying. It's been dying for a while, but now it's REALLY dying. In order to make the radio work, I have to hit it, and today when making it work by hitting it, I banged my hand up pretty badly.

This makes me concerned that I'm going to kill my hand (the one I draw with, and thus the one that keeps me employed) soon. So I'm doing a fundraiser to help me offset the cost of a new radio.

EDIT: I do have a more "official" number now on this, after a trip to Best Buy. If I'm lucky, I'll manage to swing a sale, however, this is how the numbers break down currently:
* $120 for the radio itself (Pioneer DEH-2200UB)
* $55 for the installation fee (with luck, a sale will show up that makes installation free)
* $150 for the parts to install. Because my car is stupid.
So the total I'll need to raise is a minimum of $270. The radio is cheaper than the ones previously linked, but the parts to make it fit bring the cost way up... So, I'll be selling commissions until I can afford it. ^^;;

I'm doing $5 ink commissions, in batches of ten. They'll be black and white ink on colored paper, 8.5" x 5.5" (I fail at math, disregard previous dimensions), one character, you'll get a high-res scan of them and if you kick in $2 for an envelope and postage I can also mail them out to you, but I tend to be slow at mailing... (I still have a couple that need to go out.)
Comment here with your request! :D Be sure to include an email so I can get payment from you. ^_^ (Feel free to spamproof it though with an (at) or NOSPAM.)

0. Remy for Me (sample)

4. Istari: Kyo from Fruits Basket

(Anonymous): 4 pic requests!

It's Istari here, and I'm asking for 4 different characters, let me know if you need reference pics for them, but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with all of them. I want Roy from FMA (just looking imposing and badass, he's so good at that) Zoro from One Piece with his swords, Tamaki from Ouran, and Kyo from Fruits Basket. Email is Edgela3@gmail.com, and just give me until Friday and I'll kick in for postage to have them sent to me. Can pay by Paypal or personal check, whatever you prefer.

Well, I'll be stashing this money until I get enough... and there are cheaper models (starting at about $100), but my car is stoopid and most models won't fit. (It's why I've been holding out so long. If you can find a cheaper one that I can get installed somewhere for a 2001 Chevy Impala, I'll be very happy.)

As far as I can tell the price on that is cheaper... ^^ It's times like this that I wish my brother still lived around here, since he actually knows how to do all this stuff and I probably could have gotten some free labor from him instead of being stuck with a more expensive option. Oh well...
