    Re: DVH painting/building services

    Anyone need anything done for the near future? This is my last call for the year most likely. After C6 i have back to school rush at my job for 2 weeks so wont be able to do much then, and then it starts getting cooler out and i will likely not take any painting commissions until spring. Thanks to everyone who commissioned me for some work. I hope you enjoy your items as much as i enjoy building/painting them!

    Re: DVH painting/building services

    Well my finances tell me i cant stop taking commissions for the winter if i want to continue to live happily. I just had to have a surgical procedure done to remove a growth on my lip which cost me $200, and i have a bill coming for a biposy. Dont worry though guys, both my doc and my Dermatologist says it doesnt look like anything to worry about, its just procedure to do the biopsy.

    Also this month i was hit with a $425 electric bill due to the meter readings being estimated since March...we finally got an actual reading and now i owe $425.

    This past check at my job sucked, it was a whopping $512. thats for 2 weeks. I was out sick one day and we had the jewish holidays we didnt get paid for.

    So..if anyone needs anything painted...im up to do more work!

    I will be switching most of my painting over to airbrush (with enamels) to lessen the fumes/mess in my apt.

    If anyone needs anything built or painted DVH is the man. He did my gauntlets and JP for me and the quality is simply outstanding.
