So its been a long while

So yeahhhh.

About said super long post.


Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaai gais. *cheesy grin*

My job is pretty deadbeat but stable.

But my real life begins here. It's gunna be a long grind *sucks in breath * But heeeey. Pays the bills.

I wanna say. It's been a huge help I've had the support of your lovely people. It means a lot to me to hear comments on my deviations, to get every note. I know I take a bajillion years and I know a lot of y'all have been commenting that my latest comic has a lack of colour. Guys.

It pains me buuut it's faster. Kaliko is a traditional comic and I know a lot of you love my coloured works. But colour takes time to do and polished atwork takes time and I only get a day off per week :p

Kaliko is about story. Please take a look if you love japanese mythology and the wizard of oz and Ranma ;)

It's a VERY dark work. It's got it's funny moments , the main character will make you both laugh and cry.  Buuut it's got rape, it's got child abuse,  it's got tons of messed up characters. It makes you question yourself. It's got gender related issues.

I love it because the characters make you think.

I miss you guys, How have you been so far? :)

 Also a HUGE thank you to the lovely :iconirianwhitefox: who paid for my DA subscription .
A huge arigato to the adorable :iconlawfulstudios9646: and :iconindigo-epzs: for favouriting my works .

And a giant thank you to whomever has stuck by me through thick and thin . I really appreciate it, thank you!

I also really appreciate you guys who comment, favourite my artwork and never question why I keep coming up with new comics or rebuke me. Because you get I'm going through crap and it means the world tp be treated as a ...human , you know. :)

I wish I could churn out or be super inspired on just one story but certain stories are my rungs , or serve as my rungs to get out of ...Dark places in my head. So when I see a rung, I grab onto it and pull.

So you guys not telling me I am stupid ((Yes, fyi, I have gotten angry comments asking why I never update certain stories)) . I apologize also for not updating but I'm not like other comic writers or artists as in I have a full time job. I also have major anxiety issues and have struggled with depression and even with the full support of my family and the job which brings in money for my medication...It's draining. It's a constant battle to not let it overwhelm me, and having to deal with people.I know my stories resonate with you guys . It means a lot to me. I also fully understand if you are angry and are wondering why I don't want to.

In my case, inspiration works hand in hand with my stories. And I cannot fake stories. Nor do i want to force stories because it would be what I call, giving you guys a poor quality and not the best version of the story. I would rather lay it to rest . Also. Fact is my stories are also what help me with my issues.

Kinda like a budget Shrink. My comics help me too, guys. They serve as therapy.


Wowee, how did this turn into a self-care journal entry?

Oh well.

My mind is a strange, strange place.

Anyway, thing is. I have had a ton of people I thought were friends leave me over the course of the past year and recently.

I wanna say is. I cannot force you to stay by me. I know I have bad days, I am honest as in when I have bad days I will tell you guys and not lie I am a-okay because I want to break the stereotype that artists have to be happy go lucky 24/7 on here. We have feelings, we have bad days, we also need to eat , sleep and yes, we will mess up because we are only human.So yeah. If you don;t want to see my less pretty side. Yeah, I understand.

But I want to also say to those who accepted me, who stuck by me no matter what.

Failings accepted and everything.

Thank you.

Coz as someone who got diagnosed with anxiety and depression, it means a lot to have you stay by my side .


Oh and here's a SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST which I am listening to at the moment :)

Feel free to PLEASE suggest some songs you are listening to right now! :) C'mon, I'm sure you guys listen to songs while you are drawing , writing or doing stuff, right?

Here's miiiine

That's ok! You deserve all the support. Your comics are marvelous and you are an awesome person. It saddens me to hear some people are mean, especially when the only thing they do is sit in their butt and ask for comics.

I'm your friend. I would love to talk with you more but I know you have work and our times are different.

I am not gonna name any names. But a famous comic artist told me to think of my readers as merely that. Just customers. And that saddened me and I had to disagree  with them because I cannot do that unless of course my work gets published someday. Then I will have no way of receiving direct feedback and I have no clue who buys my comics. But it's such a harsh and cold way for interaction. I get people will be people. But it just makes me a little ...sad at times that people see not only me but artists as machines to churn out free stuff for them on a whim.

Note me. For you I will reply. It might take time but I love long notes. Ask me everything you want to chat or know about me and I'll reply.

((And heeeey, thanks! Means a lot to hear that!)

I think what he meant to say is that you should write for yourself and if people enjoy it, good, if they don't, then who cares. :)
