An r/p Shop Update

Hello all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, whether it be the traditional one with pie and  drunk aunts or one with you, your favorite takeout, your cat and some Redbox! 

My Thanksgiving this year was full of things to be thankful for, and you guys were really putting in a concerted effort to top the list. Within one day of opening the Radical Possibility Etsy Shop, I had to cut  off orders for 2012 to make sure I can get you all of your slobbery-nosed portraits in time for the holidays.

I started pricing at $10, so that I could get a feel for how long each portrait takes, how much paint, erasers, pencils, paper, brushes, etc I go through. I would love to be able to continue selling these at $10, but unfortunately after time and materials put in, it ends up being the kind of business that is a lot of work and no profit. Since I just did the first one of my family for fun, I didn't really consider that it would get a good reaction and become a business.

In the new year, all 5x7 portraits will start at $30 for up to a family of four. If you would like to add your name to the list of portraits to be shipped out in January, please email me at!

I am so grateful for all of you to helping me start this process and get it off the ground! The first round of finished portraits will be shipped on Monday! 

Also, once I sat down in my office chair for six hours straight, I realized it was hardly the comfiest thing in the world, so I splurged for a new chair (and by splurged I mean bought a $40 knockoff from a warehouse by O'Hare), so for your time, here is a picture of Lucille Austero modeling the new piece.



  1. I'm so happy for you! These are too cute and I'm so excited to get my dirty paws on this. I will continue to support you and hopefully next year I will be able to add one more to the picture. We shall see. Congrats on your super quick success!!!

    1. (and pay you what your time is worth. I feel like I robbed you on this, but happy to be a test dummy family ;)
