Life... always getting in the way.

Hi guys,

I've been mulling over it for a while, and sadly the time has come for me to say goodbye to the original art collecting hobby.

I've enjoyed all my years collecting, but life has gotten in the way and I need to pay my way through schooling and look towards the future without worrying about art drops, commission lists and conventions.

Essentially, almost everything (apart from some personalised and sentimental pieces) in my CAF is up for sale and negotiation. Not just the pieces in my 'For Sale' gallery.

Admin can delete this if it's not allowed, my defense is that I've seen a few others post sale threads before.

Let me know if there is anything that catches your eye, though I must say you are unlikely to get a "bargain" as I'm not interested in taking pennies on the dollar for anything.

Thanks for all of your kind words, and digital friendship over the years. I'll still look forward to seeing all your awesome hauls!

Ryan

I am sure this was a really tough choice for you. It's something I have to ponder every now and then as well. Have to make sure that if I continue with my hobbies I am not letting them get in the way of what is important. It's a fine balance but it's tough. Best of luck to you, man.

Lordy -- I applaud your choice. Education is no joke. What are you going to be pursuing?

And perhaps in the future you can get back to collecting!

Edit: Don't sell that Finch Magneto no matter what. It's one of the most background detailed pieces I have seen him do in a long time. Plus the determination on his face is enough to push you through the hardest times in your studies

Good luck with the sale! Any healthy collection includes making tough decisions at some point. Good luck in school as well!
