My name is Melissa, or "nalem" which I prefer to go 
by online. I'm a freelance cartoonist/animator.
Originally from New York City, I moved out west
in 2006 and received my BFA from Thomas More College in Spring 2011.Now, I spend my free time drawing to my heart's content.
I'm available for hire all year round for comics, cartoons, animation, illustrations, storyboarding, and general art projects.

So, SGC is coming up and Leslie and I REALLY want to be able to attend it this year. We weren’t able to afford the trip to Texas last year and we’re definitely not able to now. BUT, BUT BUT BUT. After doing some math, Leslie and I figured that all we need to do is open up eight commission slots. Eight commissions at the above listed prices should definitely be enough to at least pay for two nights at the Sheraton Hotel in Texas! SO WE’RE DOIN’ IT, WE’RE OPENING COMMISSIONS!

So, we have eight slots for digital commissions. Full-body character shots with simple/no backgrounds. Nudity/erotica is totally fine, but we won’t be doing anything too weird, gross, or complicated. Sorry. Leslie won’t be drawing anything she isn’t 100% comfortable with. If you’re familiar with Tissue Box, then you probably have an idea of how far we’re willing to go. 

Email us at donotdestroy@live.com to reserve your slot, discuss details, and get paypal information. If you want more of Leslie’s art to see what you can expect, you can click here for a collection of SFW art, and here for NSFW.

Last example picture is Zeppelin from Lighter Than Heir. It’s a good comic, you should read it. 

Thanks again, everybody!

Help these two, everybody! They’re really great people and Leslie’s a superb artist! They deserve some time for fun!

So lately I&#8217;ve been revising old art for Lighter than Heir book 1I&#8217;ve been feeling a little self conscious about the older stuff, so I compared it with the newer stuff to assure myself that I&#8217;m improving.Then I thought it would be fun to make this thing.The designs are pretty much figured out by now [I figured out what model sheets are haha]
