(update as of 4/1)
Talked with my family a bit, working on recovering a bit more, but to both help me as an individual (physically and mentally), I've returned to looking for another job. While money is a great thing, i mean, it helps with the bills, a job is not worth compromising my physical/mental health as well as my character as it was hurting all aspects of it. I tried my best on that front, and maybe its a blessing in disguise. I'm seeing a bit of health improvement even a day or so later, and hopefully (hopefully), my creative drive will find its way back shortly. Learned a bit of a lesson though:Do not jump at the first opportunity you get, especially out of desperation.
you might find yourself in a pickle.
Thanks for the comments and kind words. Also if anyone has any ideas as to what i 'could' look for, just let me know. Last 60 days was, needless to say, hard. But its getting better.
not doing anything april-foolzy this year, not much of a bummer though I hope xD.
been about a month since an upload or an update. Here's why (and its to be completely honest as its alot)
So about 2 months ago I started my job, full time call center, not supposed to be too hard on me, but about 60 days into it, not only has my personal health declined substantially, but my personal stress accumulated over time. Right now, i feel broken as a person, and that's probably not the best thing for my health (?), and its made it very very hard to do artistic work, which im pushing through, but when you feel the way i do at the end of the day, its hard to do anything but sleep, (lol)
Truth is, i feel like a wreck, I realize i'm not several months behind on commissions, and while I am working on them, they're taking weeks upon weeks to do each one and I feel awful about it. I'm scared I'm constantly going to go broke or something, so I do stupid things like only eat once a day to save money, which i know is stupid and I'm working on fixing it, bunch of other stuff.
I really am posting this as an apology
. I feel that there's been a pretty substantial lack of communication on my end, about where I am, whats going on, why owed/any art is taking so long to get completed. I've never actually encountered anxiety to the level i've had to fight it recently, and today, I kinda... broke :c. Doesnt happen much, but i feel it happens to alot of us, and while there's no excuse for it. I'm sorry about the untimely me, my uploads are, and lack of clear and consistent communication. With so much going on with me trying to make sure that I don't end up hurting myself financially and now physically, art shifted a little to the back burner, and i'm doing what I can to push myself every day. Some days, though, it takes more than I can sport. So I am sorry, about the lack of timeliness, professionalism, and communication to you.
Life's very challenging to say the least right now, as I have alot of ambition, and really no where to go with it. But it'll get better (it always does. i hope)
On a slightly more light note, I'm a part of this thingle, The Anthrology
, its an artbook of other collective anthro works, and I will be contributing to it. If you do want to support the book (and it's alright if you dont), go here and check out the line-up of artists over at indie-gogo www.indiegogo.com/projects/ant…
I've never really had the opportunity to contribute to a project like this, so donations help alot.
I'll post more work soon hopefully.
