Custom Art; as yet undefined
There is so much art I have to offer that I haven't DONE yet!
I want to do a portrait of your pet.
I want to do a _fancy_ portrait of your pet with silly embellishments like turning your fur baby into a hipster with goofy fashions or adding flowery frames around that fluffy face.
I want do do a simple portrait of you.
I want to do a crazy, experimental art portrait of you.
I want to use a photo of you as a reference to transform you into a mystical alien.
I want to draw you two, you cute/cool/quirky couple. simply and neatly or using any of these styles.
I want to know what space you have on your wall so I can size it to fit.
meanwhile, I'm sitting over here, really shy and kind of socially awkward and I really appreciate a chance to chat and share ideas.
Ultimately I plan to gather up a lot of examples of the kinds of artwork I can do and post these on Etsy for sale using money. I am not sure if that's going to be as much fun because I'll meet different kinds of people who aren't in to share as much as Simbi folk are. But it'll be nice to earn some money off my art cuz I gotta pay rent. Anyway, I'm not quite there yet and I'm willing to trade for a lot of different experiences or just plain Simbi.
Since this is an offer of a variety of styles and sizes of art, and, thusly, a variety of time expenditure and materials cost on my part, the price I've listed is kind of arbitrary (also I listed it as "per visit" just to make it more arbitrary). I will probably have a good idea in advance of how long something will take and what materials I will use. We can figure that out when we talk. :)
As always with art I create, I pay for materials, you pay shipping.
Training & Qualifications
I am a lifelong artist. I want to be able to earn money off my art at some point although I'd like to imagine that a utopian dream of a fully functional, long term sustainable barter economy is something that I will get to live, haha. It's cool, though. I'm working toward getting a tattoo apprenticeship so I need to do a lot of art to keep getting my skills more mindful, precise and intuitive.
Please visit my handle @al3x1shhh on Instagram for my recent, finished artworks. Please note I just did 100 days of skulls so there are a lot of skulls. There's a lot more in between the cracks.
Availability & Preferences
Whenever, whenever. if I'm not free when I get your message, I'll write you back when I can. My schedule is self-made so it's very flexible.

About Alexis Heikkinen
Thirtysomething lady-of-sorts living in a trailer trying to get an apprenticeship to tattoo. I live with my boyfriend and his dog. I try to eat lots of vegetables. I like to paint and draw. ...I pretend to play the ukulele. I care a lot about people's feelings. Unless I'm really tired. I am really into meditation and tai chi. Technically I am a Reiki II practitioner but I do not actively practice. Man, I'd really like to start practicing Reiki again. That'd be nice. Why'd I ever stop? Why do we ever stop these things that are good for us? "no time." ha, like that's a real reason. man. dude. bro. filly. frilly bro. dude bro ladypants. Supposedly if I write enough about myself that will make my profile "stronger." if my profile isn't strong enough, it won't be able to lift an elevator of people targeted by the local supervillian. NOT THAT I'M SAYING I'M A SUPERHERO. I am NOT a superhero. NOR is my profile a superhero and myself a superhero's sidekick. that would be ridiculous. My superhero sidekick name is NOT Ridiculosa the Puffball. Seriously. Very often at night, I can hear coyotes howling. they're pretty amazing. they're like, "woo, we are alive, hey guys, check out this vole we just found. woo!" and my chihuahua doesn't know whether she wants to go join them or hide in terror. We like to keep her inside when they howl. And when the big Barred Owl is hooting. but it's cool, I support coyotes and owls existentially. they both like to announce that they are alive. that's a really good meditation practice: "breathe in: I am alive, breathe out: I celebrate being alive." that's a good one. golly gee whillakers, tho, there are so many good ones. so many. show moreOpen to other proposals
