So this this last Saturday was about the weirdest night of my life. Some friends and I went to Casa Bonita which was a surreal experience in itself and what I would have written this journal entry about if not for the events that happened afterwards. So after we left Casa Bonita (that place is the fucking worst BTW), Joel, his wife Gabi and I get into their car and jump on to I-25 heading back to Aurora. Now it's 5 lanes of 70mph+ traffic and it's busy as shit. We notice this girl, maybe in her early 20's running along the shoulder of the highway
before we can ask WTF? She literally runs in front of our car about 20 yards in front of us! We come to a screeching halt to not hit her . She doesn't even skip a beat and then runs into the next lane and almost gets hit by another car. She then starts zig zagging back and fourth so we try to drive past her and she then makes b-line to run back in front of us so we slam on the breaks again, this time we get rear ended by a car behind us. She then runs to the farthest left lane and gets leveled by a 4 door blue Toyota Tundra that was going at least 70 mph! Worst fucking thing I have ever seen in my life, by far! It hit her so hard, that it literally knocked her out of her shoes. She then somehow got up and started yelling something and then collapsed. By then we were on the phone to the police and somehow people made a barricade so that traffic didn't run over her or the people who were trying to help her until the police and ambulance arrived. I don't know how there wasn't a 50 car pile up so that I guess was a small miracle in itself. The way that situation was going it could have been much, much worse! We had to fill out statements and such for the next hour and a half and surprisingly our car and two others were the only other collisions that happened. I don't know if the girl lived or not because I, nor Joel and Gabi have been able to find any information on it. All we could find was that the night of I-25 was closed down after the accident. Just strange.
Anyhow on a lighter note I guess it's Street Fighter's 25th anniversary so I think I'm going to start doing some fan art for it. I think I want to do every Street Fighter character that they have ever created since the original Streetfighter through Super Street Fighter IV (I'm not sure I'll do the characters from EX
we'll see how I feel! Lol). Should be fun!
Commissions still open!
My basic rates
8 ½" X 11 ½" black & white pencil drawing $35
8 ½" X 11 ½" Line art inks on Strathmore Smooth $25
11" X 17" Line art inks on Strathmore Smooth page $40
8 ½" X 11 ½" watercolor on cold press arches paper $100
11" X 17" watercolor on cold press arches paper $150
My standard prices are my prices and I feel they are fair due to the amount of work I put into each work. I am not willing to be haggled down in price, as I do this for a living and need to cover materials (which the price does include shipping inside the U.S.), and time dedicated to commissions. However these are just my baseline prices so feel free to inquire about anything else you might want me to do such as design work or an OC and we can negotiate a fair price. I am always more than willing to open a productive dialogue about potential commission work.
If you wish to commission me for a piece or pieces you may message me on Deviant Art with the word ( commission ) in the subject line. I'm on DA everyday so I should be back to you pretty quick, barring any sort of emergency.
I only accept payment through pay pal. I will not start any commission unless I get half of the commission price up front, and I will only ship the completed piece once I have the rest of the payment for said work. If I can't finish a commission or start it due unforeseen circumstances I will return the half payment to the client.
Lets see what you want me to do!
