A Bumpy YearPosted August 16, 2021 at 12:15 pmHello all! Some of you may have noticed how inconsistent the updates have been this year. In short, I have had a very rough 2021. One of my cats suddenly became very ill and had to be put down in April. I've had some serious interpersonal issues that finally came to a head in early summer. It wouldn't be appropriate to go into the details here, but just trust me: it sucks! And just last week, my air conditioner broke (I live in the desert with 100F+ weather every day in summer) and then a sudden, violent storm knocked our neighbor's tree onto our house. I've been pushing myself as hard as possible to keep up with Slightly Damned, Patreon, and finish my commission queue, but it's been a difficult time.This week I am going to be vending at DenFur in Denver, Colorado. I am looking forward to the change of pace and scenery and being able to see my convention buddies again. I'm really burnt out from drawing anyway, so I am hoping that I'll feel refreshed when I return. My plan is to use the rest of August to finally finish my commission queue and then use September & early October to catch up with Slightly Damned and Patreon work.Thanks so much for always being so patient and supportive. I'm really frustrated with how a lot of things have turned out lately. I am grateful for all the friends who have stood by my side, as well as anyone who's sent me kind words, or even just quietly enjoyed my art. I wouldn't be able to do this without you.P.S. The goodies from the Slightly Damned Book 2 Kickstarter are being packed and shipped by Hiveworks this month. Look forward to receiving your rewards soon!
