My artist friend could really use some money and is offering super cheap commissions!

Sorry to bother everyone, but my friend’s not in a very good financial situation right now, and they need some business - as a result, they’ve bumped down their commission prices to $5! He’s a great artist and a great guy, so if you want some nice, cheap art, check him out!

His commission info is here!
