As usually happens, the number of incoming projects drops off in December. This is not unexpected. It does leave you with an opportunity, though.
Most of the time when you commission me to paint for you the wait time is about two months. Right now the wait time can be measured in weeks! This is because I currently only have one solid project for January and a few brewing in the background but not yet finalized.
What I'm saying is that right now is the PERFECT time to hit me up for work if you're excited by the idea of a quick turn-around.
