Single Character Chibi
A single character chibi commission with a flat, colour wash or tea-stained background as in the examples above, on A4 paper.

You will receive a large scan + the original artwork in the post.

Available as a points paid commission for a limited time only!

If you are able to pay via PayPal please get in touch via note as it will be CHEAPER for you. Paying via points will include the 20% fee DA takes. I just wanted to make the option available to those who can't use PayPal.

These commissions are usually £10 GBP via PayPal ($12.50)

You can view all my commission information here; please read my t&cs before ordering!

Tea Crisis Action Plan
I recently re-drew the 'Crisis Action Plan ' from my Tea 'zine (that I made a few years ago) as a full colour A4 mini-poster. Pretty pleased with how it turned out! Pin it up in your kitchen, workplace or wherever for those meltdown moments, because tea solves everything!
