This is a list of the current projects on my bench
I update my site as things become available and all stock and in-stock updates happen there in real time-->: LDM's HOME PAGEStructure of the build log (as of Feb. 15, 2012):Custom Project Selection Process:
Firstly, I would like to thank each and every one of my many clients over the last 6 years. Without you, my artistic pursuits would not be realized and for that, I am eternally thankful. Please understand that the following "rules" are now in effect to make your experience with me better. I strive for EXCELLENT client care and quality of work and feel as though the following changes will help me to deliver that more effectively than I already do without stressing me out so bad that I feel like i need to puke every day.
The manner in which I will accept new commissions must be changed. Philosophically, I am not comfortable sitting on people's money for extended periods of time, nor am I comfortable making people wait for long periods of time. Finally, I really hate finally getting to a project only to find that the client has disappeared into the great beyond internetz after I have all their parts on hand. So, to rectify this I have created my new build log. As you can see by looking below, there are limited spots for various types of projects. If the type of project you want is full, then I will not take it until a spot opens up. Period. Right now, I have 25+ people waiting for me to accept commissions again...look at my log...does it look like I will be getting to anything new any time soon? The projects there already are 3 months + of work and other than the repairs, it is all from my previous build log!
What will happen is that I will diligently update my build log (both here and on my site...see my blog above for announcements) as spots become available. When I clear 2-3 projects, I will open up the spots. The first folks to contact me will get those slots if we can agree on the details. So, which place do I update quicker? My site. Usually update it 1-24 hours sooner than here.
How do I pick the projects that I will accept? Well, I have to feel them. I am done taking projects that I can't put my heart into. If I decline your project, it doesn't mean that it sucks, it just means that it doesn't move ME. Art is like that. My long time clients already know this about me and now is the time that the rest of you do as well. You know before you come to me if you like my style and if you do, then don't be surprised if I ma opinionated about your project. I have done this nearing 400 times now. I know what I am doing and I will not steer you wrong. If I say it will look bad...it will. If I say it won't work...it won't. Finally, I reserve the right to "jump around" my build log as I see fit. I don't do it often, but sometimes I get "blocked" and need to clear my head by working on something else. If you commission me, do not complain about this.
If you commission me, you are gonna have to trust me or we cannot work together. I will not steal your money, nor will I simply disappear (barring an accident or something). If it turns out that I cannot finish our business together (my fault) then I will refund your deposit money in it's entirety. If you spaz out, I will not refund you unless you find someone to buy you out (and it will be minus the paypal fees).So, in summation...you want me to do a project for you, you #1 check this very build log and see if I have a spot open BEFORE you PM or email me. Then, #2 you read my Services post (above or on my site) so that you understand my guidelines/policies. Finally, #3 you PM or email me and we discuss your project. If you miss any of the above 3 steps, I will tell you to read my services thread/tab and possibly send Gravy to your domicile for a little "awareness training". ;)
As always, you are free to PM or email me questions, but make sure you have actually looked for the answer here first ;)The BUILD LOG is Currently: OPEN for product saber orders
