1 year of full-time Art!

Raised by 6 people in 33 months
Hey everyone. I'm a family man, and an aspiring illustrator, sequential artist, and comic creator from Henderson, Nevada. I'm hoping to raise the funds to make a complete career and life change for my family and I.  It would make all the difference in the world to have a full year where I only need to maintain one day-job, which would allow me the time to draw, and show at conventions and art shows. 
     For the last three years I have been building a group of customers for my art, and I've given out hundreds of free full-page sketches, all while working a full-time job to support my family. Things were going in a great direction and I was starting to get some very positive attention. Just as I was building some momentum, the wheels fell off the wagon. 
     Last July I was laid-off from my job and from then until 3/15 I was in a constant scramble to provide for my family. Needless to say there was very little time for art. Since March I've been working two jobs to keep afloat and drawing at night after the kids go to bed. I'm just looking for a chance to do what I'm supposed to be doing.  

Thank you for any help you can provide.

He drew the ultimate Kurt Russell for me and his art deserves a chance to grow and prosper.
