Mellissa Redman
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Hi I'm Mellissa and I'm 25. I graduated cum laude from the University of Akron with a BFA in painting/drawing and a minor in art history in May 2012=D I'm currently working on my MFA in painting at the Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University. I'm an illustrator and freelance artist ^ ^My favorite color is pink, and I think muffins are the cutest food ever!

Besides painting, I love printmaking and I plan on eventually owning a silkscreen to produce prints outside of the studio!
Lastly, I block trolls and overall mean people, so be warned! ;)

Custom T-Shirts and Other Commissions

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 15, 2014, 1:08 PM
Hey guise! Since I opened commissions, here's my commission info (my old commish info is a bit dated so time to start fresh). Among the regular 2D work I do, I'm now offering CUSTOM T-SHIRTS! Woo! I may add bags if I see cheap canvas available at my local K-Mart/Dollar Tree. So spread the word around and if you're interested shoot me a note!

At this point I think he's being intentionally obtuse. But don't worry about him anymore :)

Sorry for randomly popping in...but it seems that guy is everywhere I'm going...

I think he believes, if he carries it on long enough, either
a) people will give up and allow deviantART to change, and/or
b) someone will throw a temper tantrum and he can begin to report users for bullying, using the temper tantrum as 'proof.' People will sympathize with him because he was bullied, thus helping his cause.

Honestly, I don't know why he keeps pressing for change. A large amount of people said no, and an art community reflects what the community wants, right? I don't understand why he can't go to another website with a community that wants what he wants to upload. Way less unnecessary conflict...

Exactly. Just ignore him now.

ur welcome.
