The Benefit Is Not Yet Overâ€¦

Soâ€¦ after all that talk about how much I didnâ€™t want to be running online collection for Jake, Iâ€™ve had a small change of heart.
Small, mind you. Three items worth.
The first is a piece I was paid a dollar to create. The catch? I had to draw with my eyes shut. Itâ€™s up on eBay right now.
Everything above the eBay fees and the shipping costs will be donated by me to Jake. He watches this blog, and these auctions, so heâ€™ll be keeping me honest. Itâ€™s the best we can do, under the circumstances. If I ever try to run an actual 401c Non-Profit then Iâ€™ll have to hire an auditing firm, but for now, Jake audits.
The next two pieces Iâ€™ll blog about on Sunday the 13th. Theyâ€™re â€œSketch Jams,â€ where everybody present threw something down on the same piece of bristol. One is pencil only, the other has a mixture of pencils, inks, and even grey markers. Same deal on those â€” everything above what eBay and the USPS charge me will go to Jake. If the bids go so high that I start seeing serious income tax penalties, wellâ€¦ Iâ€™ll just have to take that chance.
Watch this space!
