w e l p.
Thanks to the company that owns my day job getting sold, I no longer have one. In situations like this, I have seen many of my Tumblr comrades offer art commissions.
I am not an artist — at least not in the drawing/painting/digital sense of the word. At least not one skilled enough that I’d feel okay charging money for it.
I am a musician and songwriter.
So I’m going to try something that I’ve seen less people attempt but sounds like a ball and a half: SONG COMMISSIONS!
- $20 per minute
- So a 2-minute song would be $40 and a 4-minute song would be $80
- So basically tell me the maximum amount you’re willing to pay and I will write a song of that length or shorter
- If you give me a 2-minute limit and a song ends up being 2:15 or like 2:02 don’t worry about those extra seconds we cool
- You choose the topic!
- You could have a theme song for your fanfic
- Think about it
- NO DOCTOR WHO
- Not because I don’t like Doctor Who but I have a band and all my Doctor Who songwriting skillz must go to them
- When your song is finished and payment has gone through you will receive a recording of me singing YOUR SONG accompanied by acoustic guitar
- You are free to do anything with this recording except sell it yourself
- So yeah send it to all your friends, post it on your website or blog, idgaf as long as you don’t charge for it
- I reserve all rights to record it professionally, put it on an album and sell it myself if it turns out to be superawesome
If you need evidence of my skills I have already released a solo album (/surreptitiously drops link to another place where you can give me money).
If you want to know which fandoms I’m most familiar with you can check my blog (although I am 100% willing to write non-fandom songs as well).
If you have any questions or would like to commission a song, drop a note in my ask!
Ronen you are a genius!

Big thanks to everyone involved!
So, so, so psyched to be involved in this!
thinking about how expensive it can be to make your art
thinking about how this keeps the act of making art inaccessible to certain people
how this system labels certain photographers “doing it right” or grants legitimacy based on how much you can afford to do,
how “please show work from within the last 12 months” doesn’t have room for times when:
1. running out of money to develop film, or go on trips, or chase ideas
2. you need to focus all your energy on just surviving and paying rent
3. lapses in mental health due to both of the above
4. not eating correctly and thus not being able to think correctly
who do we value as artists/ whose struggles do we romanticize
why do we want our artists to be starving? why do we think that somehow makes the art ‘more real’?
oh god don’t I know it.
the best part of this was that i was actually embarrassed about this post and deleted it, and had to source it from someone else’s blog.
