Update: Charity commissions are currently closed. If you still want to commission me, you can see my normal commission info here: maioceaneyes.deviantart.com/jo…

All the proceeds have been donated to relief efforts in Japan. You can see all the sketches I did here: maioceaneyes.deviantart.com/ar…

Edit: lovelesslybeloved has offered to ink and color any sketches I do, all for the low price of free, so if you'd like a color version of your sketch, contact her after you get it from me.

Status: CLOSED

Original Post:
Hey, guys. I'm normally really shy about advertising my commissions, but this is sort of a special situation for me. By now, you probably know that there was a 8.9 earthquake in Japan. I have friends and family in Japan, and I know some of them are safe (thank God), but there are a lot I still haven't heard from. My home state of Hawaii is currently under tsunami warning, and I have a lot of friends and family there as well. I gotta say, I feel pretty helpless about the whole situation, but I want to do what I can, even while I'm far away from the ones I love.

Edit: I've heard from my family, and they are well and safe.

If you're still willing to do sketches, either now, or later, would you like to offer a commission at our auction here: :iconhelpjapan:? 100% of bidders' donations will go to charities aiding Japan, and the artists can choose the charity, if they wish. We're trying to reach as many artists as possible to make it a success! The auction runs for two weeks, but there is no time limit after that for completing art.

If you're not able to, that's fine. I'm just trying to spread the word, which is turning out to be very challenging. If you'd like to help us with that, it would be very much appreciated, too! :)

Thank you so much for everything you're doing. :)

Gosh, I'd love to participate in this but I don't even know where to begin to design my own original character. Guess I'm out of luck there...

I don't even know how to begin to ask for you to draw my OC for me...never really thought it out. I would love to send in a donation in any case.
