Hah, as unusual title as I can muster, but hey, it does the trick!

I know I do this a lot for causes I believe in, but the ones I believe in most are usually my friends and loved ones. As such, I wanted to make a plea here: My boyfriend Carlos was selected to go to the World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco. The WWDC is an annual week-long event for up-and-coming game and software developers which features workshops, labs, conferences and networking. It's a very prestigious event, and very difficult to get into... it usually sells out in 2 minutes, just to give you an idea. This year they changed their format to allow randomly-selected participants, and my boyfriend was lucky enough to be selected to purchase a ticket. 

Yah, you caught that, right? You can only be SELECTED to BUY a ticket. A 1600$ ticket (plus expenses for travel, hotel, etc. NOTHING is included). That's very steep for us, as students... and most participants have the financial backing of some huge gaming company or something, so it's really tough for runts like us. That said, I promised to try hard and make this dream come true for him, so we've created a GoFundMe page and we're going to give this our best shot. 

If you have it in your heart (and wallet, I guess) to donate some money, even just a little bit, it would mean the world to us. Carlos is extremely motivated and hardworking, and I have no doubt that he'll make it in the industry (he's already interned at Ubisoft, and is going back there in the summer for more work) but the chance to go to WWDC would help him along quite a bit.

If you can donate independently, that would be great, but I am also offering commissions which I will split with him 50/50 (and probably more).

Sketch commissions, 20$ a piece, if anyone is interested. (One character only, black and white + shade. More complex will get a touch more expensive. We're trying to raise money here! ^_-). 
Prints are available too. 

The link for his page is: www.gofundme.com/85x3xw


I wish you guys could see me on my knees begging right now... I'M DOING IT!!!

Anyway, thanks for reading and passing it on if you can, and thanks as always for your support. D.A. is an awesome place.
