Hello everyone. Good to see you all. You look good, considering it's been....two years since my last upload, four since my last journal post??
A lot has happened in four years. I haven't drawn much, at all. I graduated college. I got a job offer from Disney, but had to turn it down due to family issues. I got married - a year ago, actually. Turns out, when you hurdle a bunch of milestones in a row at lightning speed, you don't have a lot of time for anything else. My last project I even worked on was a commission for a guy who eventually lost patience with me (I guess) and didn't contact me again. I finished the picture, but I lost his contact information when my computer crashed a month later. Hey you, I have your picture!
I'd really like to start getting back into art. It won't be like it was when I was in high school, pumping out a new piece ever week or two. I wish I could work that fast again - I certainly have enough ideas! - but I think I have to be realistic if I'm going to get back into this. No pressure to keep updated, answer all my comments. I'll respond as much as I can, but please don't be offended if I don't, or if I do months later. I'm not really going to be able to participate in groups, though I'll likely accept your submission requests if I get to them fast enough.
But what I will do is maybe start browsing art again, and hopefully get inspired to pick up my pen (or computer mouse, as the case may be). Maybe that will help me slow my life down a bit, and remember why I drew in the first place. That would be really nice.
Anyway, this is my halfassed attempt to explain and apologize for my unannounced hiatus. I don't know if any of my followers are still out there, but if you are, thanks for sticking around, and with any luck I'll have more pieces to show you in the future!
