Help a College Dream

I have striven to go to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I applied and got in with a merit scholarship based on my portfolio and did everything I could to secure federal funds.

I was really close to attending, but I can't afford many of the fees nor the rest of the tuition to start next week. Several private lenders denied me and my dream of going to that school went with it.

I tried other avenues, but none of them panned out and the deadline is really close.

Going to a 4 year art school has been my dream since I went back to school at a community college 4 years ago. I have slowly been working towards that dream and did everything I can to get into that school.

I ask for help furthering my education.


Look at all the art I did for people so far here: http://vigasartroom.tumblr.com/

The semester is over and thanks to lots of help I got through it and thanks to you! I got extra help from others outside of Gofundme and appealed to the school who helped too!

I am very greatful.

"Ok, so where's my commission?"

The semester kept me very busy and I had life circumstances and living situations that also got in the way. But as I said, the semester is over and I'm going to finish these over the break. I owe you guys big time. Thank you!

"where you been VIGA!?"

It's been a rough February. I didn't have a home for a few weeks, but now I have one. Also, schoolwork had to come first in a lot of circumstances. Add in other commitments and life and I got way behind.

But I'm back and doing art again.

As always, thank you, and remember to check your spam folder in you email. I may have left a message or asked you to tell me what you would like.

Thanks.

Sorry things have slowed down in the workplace. I just finished the 2 days of orientation and currently looking for a home. Trying not to become homeless is a job itself. :P

Thank you all again, and today expect one or two done.

Just a reminder: My thank you messages with email info for requests may have gone to your spam folder! Please check. Thank you.

I forgot to leave a message as to what I wanted. Could you just draw me in my signature beret (any color is fine) sitting in a "director's chair" holding a film slate with my name on it (Matthew "Geo" Geoffino)? If you could do that, I would be so happy.

not sure if you got my message, viga, but anything you want to sketch is fine. Though, I just thought about a sketch of me ponified with my fav Twilight Sparkle reading books would be kinda awesome. :D

Saw Linkara's post and want to help, but I was wondering if you've ever designed a business card? It's what I need right now more then a sketch or character. Just let me know if you can! Front would be a sketch of something, the back would be my info.
