Hello, my name is Kimberly Mattia, I am a freelance digital illustrator and graphic artist and I have recently lost my computer due to hard drive failure. This comes at a really bad time for me as I don’t have enough money for a new computer. The income I made off my commissions and my part time job is not nearly enough to afford a new computer. As a freelance artist my computer is my main source of my ability to work since all my digital art programs I use are on there, it also the main source of my income since it is the only way I can find work and get work from commissions. So without a new computer I will no longer be able to find work therefore my income will take a sharp decline. Also without a new computer I will no longer be able to take on the transformation comic commissions you all like to get from me. I also will no longer be able to create any of the beautiful artwork you all like to see from me. My computer is my livelihood and without one I can say goodbye to my art career and be forced to take on another dead end retail job just so I have enough money to live off of. So if any of you can donate to this fundraiser, you will not only help keep my art career alive, but help me to continue making a living off my art. It doesn’t matter how much or how little you can donate, it doesn’t matter if it’s a 100 dollars or just 1 dollar, any amount you give will be helpful to me.
