Very unfortunately for about a year now my computers been slowly giving out on me. Problem after problem. Around this time last year it had a physical hardware issue that made it shut down completely. We got it repaired but it's been more like putting a bandaid on a wound that needs stitches. It's start up has been iffy and it was always a gamble whether it'd work properly. later in the year the screen would burn images into it without even being left on the screen for more than a few seconds. Everything was stuff I could deal with, that I could manage because it still RAN and that was the most important thing.
Yesterday when restarting my computer it wouldn't start back up. I restarted 4 times, did all the troubleshooting and called for assistance but it won't start up. It's finally time to get a new one but there's been a reason I've been avoiding it and using mine as long as i could, I can't afford one.
My family and I have been struggling with money problems for awhile and even affording rent is a struggle. I make all my money through art because I'm unable to work any normal job so as you can understand not having a computer means no art means no money. I would greatly appreciate any donation to get me closer to replacing my computer and getting back to art. Theres so much I have to do that I can't without my computer.
I've gone over all the costs for the computer including tax and 2400 covers it fully. The entire cost will go toward the computer and nothing else.
*UPDATE: I've added reward levels with prints as rewards you can recieve! They will be shipped once I have my files back and upon recieving a donation I'll send you an inquiry on what prints you'd like. There's also a reward of the top donators reciving a commission once i'm able to do art again however unless you get the special bundle you cannot recieve art and prints it's one or the other
Thank you for your time and even for reading this.
