Art for Sale for Tessa’s Oral Cancer Fund

Ok, I’ve mentioned it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, here’s the details:

Last year, my Cousin Dale announced his adult daughter Tessa has oral cancer. There were insurance issues and his blue collar family was having trouble putting together funds for treatment, time lost from work, doctor’s appointments, etc. He put together a GoFundMe account at: https://www.gofundme.com/vndn488k

Myself and my parents kicked in, but Dale is far short of the $10,000 goal. I’m struggling too. Here at home, I have severe debt and my car is falling apart. I constantly feel as if I’m living from one crisis to another.

So, I had an idea.

I’ve got two pieces up for sale. Proceeds to go to Tessa’s Cancer Fund.

Do NOT save the date! SMUT 3 has been postponed until after DomCon LA. The prints and flyers will feature different dates and artists, making this piece a unique collector’s piece. Click the photo to purchase the original art. All my proceeds from this sale go to Tessa’s Cancer Fund.

One is the original poster art for the upcoming SMUT 3 art show. The date has been officially postponed, which also means we’ll have a different roster of artists. What this means is, the final posters and flyers will be different from the original art, making this a unique piece.

This piece is currently on Etsy for $200 plus S&H at https://www.etsy.com/listing/273156…

I’ve realized I have to change something if I’m going to get serious about painting. The boot is coming along well, but painting takes lots of time. Trying to update about these paintings is literally like watching paint dry (no seriously, the paint was still curing when I took this photo). It’s almost there, I’m redoing the reflection in the buckle and the chrome.

Next up is “Hot Rod Boot” AKA “Maneater”, an acrylic painting on 11×14 canvas of a high heeled boot styled like a hot rod. That’s the pic of the canvas up top. The boot has flames, tailpipes, and a shark teeth smile. I’ve been working on this piece every morning for about two months before I go to work at my vanilla driving gig.

The painting was conceived of as a learning experience, where I could focus more time and effort than one of my typical art pieces.

I was going to try some form of bidding process through the GoFundMe page, but realized that wouldn’t work out right. So, I’m asking $350, plus shipping and handling. Payment to be made through Etsy. Photos of the work in progress are available through my Facebook page and of course on FetishArtist.net

There’s more that can be done, but at the moment I’m stretched thin. I’ve had ideas like using E-bay instead of Etsy and sending out smaller pieces in exchange for smaller donations. That will have to come later.

One last very important thing to mention, Tessa doesn’t know me and I barely know Dale. That side of the family doesn’t know much about my artwork, and my involvement in fetish and BDSM. Tessa doesn’t even know I’m doing this. I’m just trying to help out. All proceeds I receive from these pieces will be donated to the cancer fund.

I know there are collectors out there and this is a way I can take what I do and use it to help someone in need. To my friends in the fetish world, please share this.

From the garage

It’s fleshing out quite nicely, and I’m starting to work things into the reflection. I’m calling it Maneater so far, but I might have to change that.

I’m doing two paintings from the garage as I let the cat play in the back yard during the mornings. It’s a great way for me to get away from things distracting me from art. Today I got work done on two pieces, and gessoed three 11×14 canvas boards for future use and as test boards to see how certain paints look together and trying new things.

I’ve got a lot of room to play with reflections, and got this started in the heel.

Nipple torture in the front of the boot. Not sure if I should call it Maneater after this, but this has been fun to work on.

And the leatherman piece is coming along well too.
