I've been a part of the community since the haloscan and the beginning of the Dean campaign, though under a different name at the time that I can no longer log into because I forgot the password years ago.

Anyway, my main point is that I've been around for quite awhile, through the smooth times and the rough, and keep coming back because this community has always been there for me. Several years ago, the community helped us with getting a window AC and helping with our rent, and some of you from time to time have helped out when we hit rough spots with the state not sending checks on time for my live in care provider, or when bills simply pile up too much.

We've been humbled over the years by all the help we've received here, all the generosity of the people in this community, and so I'm giving all of you 50% off my standard rates for my art services through the holidays since it's the only way I can really give back and say thank you.

Here are a few samples of my work, to give you an idea of what I do.

And pets:

You can see everything over at my website, along with my serial fiction - I've given away over 1200 free copies of my first novella this month alone.

I appreciate your time, and all of your generosity over the years. Happy holidays!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
