I have mentioned before that art is not my primary source of income and, unfortunately, my main job at a distribution center has been physically and mentally taxing me far more than it had before for months. One of the reasons I had been able to start drawing fan art and post so often last year and through the beginning of this year was because I had a stable, 8 hour job. Then, suddenly, my department was forced to work longer hours for no reason other than "to be fair to other departments". I'll spare the full rant, but, in short, since the summer, my cowokers and I were working pointless overtime. Great for the bank, not so much for the body. Between that and other factors that made me lose complete faith in the company I had worked over 9 years in, I added to my stress and exhaustion levels by looking for another job.
So the good news is, I got it! My last day at my current job will be this Wednesday and I am greatly looking forward to walking out of that warehouse for the final time.
Once I'm recovered, settled, and used to my new job, I hope to be back to churning out art. I have so much I've been wanting to draw and I want to be able to get commissions done as quickly as I used to! I want to practice coloring both digitally and traditionally. So much to do, so little energy right now!
But yes, I wanted to thank all my followers, especially those who have commissioned me within the past few months, for their patience and support. You guys are all awesome!
