Ahoi, long time no post.
I just haven't really had all that much to say or show. I've been chipping away at commission work, as well as the occasional personal project here and there, as well as trying to stay afloat among an endless sea of chaotic, fluctuating mental health and a full-time job. It's been increasingly difficult to find motivation or stay focused on pretty much everything, and it's gotten to the point where I feel a sense of guilt if I dedicate any second of my time to anything other than the pressing deadlines I've got coming.
Therefore, I've decided that once I finish these final few commission pieces, one of which I've been working on for six years, I'm not going to be taking any commission work for a very long time. This is a very bittersweet decision, as I'd really rather be a full-time freelance artist than what I'm currently doing as a full-time job, but it's sweet in the sense that my mental health needs a fucking breather from all of this. I have an endless supply of ideas, and I'm more concerned about running out of time than running out of ideas. It hurts to not be able to work on any of this stuff without the crushing pressure of everything else.
My physical health has also taken a rapid decline, but I live in fucking America and I'm not really too far above the poverty line so it's not like I can really do anything about that. Among other issues, I suffered a concussion recently. I'm feeling better now, but something still seems off and I'm not sure how bad it is/was and I probably won't be able to find out without putting myself in medical debt for the rest of my life, so I guess I'll just die idk.
Anyway, as I said, I'm wrapping up final commission pieces, and then that's it. If anyone wants anything from me, I have over 200 completed paintings. Many of these paintings are still available for purchase, and I have prints and countless other products available on Society6 and Redbubble. Also, I technically have a Patreon, but I'm really not trying to push it too hard until I actually have things to post on there. I'm expecting it to become a bit more popular once I start animating again, which I'd like to do very soon, and is another reason I'm going to stop taking commissions. You can also buy me a coffee if you want. I also stream on Twitch, so you can follow or subscribe there if you want to see me mostly play 20 year old games on a brand new PC. Sometimes I stream art, and I will be streaming animation once that ball gets rolling again.
I think I've pretty much plugged everything here. I made a brief mention of it on the internet's porta-potty, also known as twitter, but I'll be having a few new Youtube videos coming out. One of which will be a basic update, and the other one will be a tour through my old animations, which were thought to have been lost forever. It will also include my very first Madness Combat tribute, which I didn't even attempt to submit to the portal under the assumption that it would be blammed in the blink of an eye. Very few people have seen any of these animations, and while I could just post them all, I'd kinda rather re-introduce them to the world in a Youtube video featuring commentary by my dumb ass.
Anyway that's about it.
