Hi. My name is Michael. I'm a self-taught artist who is looking to raise funds for a laptop so that I may continue my craft by creating digital projects varying from illustration, graphic design, and even some video editing/producing.
Though I currently work part time and do freelance artwork to cover my art supply expenses, with my current living situation, bills, medical expenses, and my cat's expenses, what I make in a month doesn't allow me much room to save for an essential tool that I desperately need to work digitally on the go. Because of this, I am also looking for a 2nd job which has been a slow endeavor. My current desktop is running past 10 years and its roughly on its last legs, so bad that it freezes every so often while using my tablet for projects. So currently I only use it to scan and clean up traditional art that I work on. I'm literally surprised its lasted this long now.
I'm asking for the said amount, which is half of what the laptop I have an interest in purchasing costs, so that I may get a mighty good laptop that would last a few years. My goal ultimately is to have something powerful enough to handle video editing/producing as well as the power to start streaming some projects online (which I have been interested in doing for years). I'll be offering rewards for some of my current services as well for this occasion. I'd feel a lot better working towards this goal by creating work for you instead of earning donations simply for free. Shipping is free to anyone in the US and I charge the exact shipping rate to your country outside of the US. For some samples of my work, please check out my art blog at Chao-One ART. Thank you.
