Hey! 

I haven't updated this or uploaded anything in a while. 2017 was an absolutely miserable year for me, but 2018 is looking like it might be a bit better. 

I don't like talking about my personal business to the internet (or most people in real life, truth be told; I'm a very private person). What I do feel comfortable saying about this extended break is this: A lot of things went wrong for me in 2017. I've always had struggles with mental health, and 2017 and the first couple months of 2018 have been especially challenging for me. Unfortunately these things don't work on a timetable, like a sprained ankle might. 

The good news is, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. I've gotten help and I'm taking care of myself. I'm getting my creative writing/drawing mojo back. I'm doing what I need to do, but getting back into the grind I had before while maintaining my full-time job is anything but easy. I'm not yet in a position to commit to my old schedule, but I can assure everyone I'm feeling a little better each day. Most importantly, the one thing I've been missing for the past year-- the DRIVE to draw and write-- is, shall we say, "waking up" again. Not the bright, perky OKAYI'MAWAKENOW you'd expect from a little kid... more like the "Do I haaaavvveee to?" groan of a moody teenager. So, we're getting there. 

If you're reading this... thank you for your patience. And for not abandoning my silly comics. I promise someday soon things will get back to where they need to be.

-Caitlin

Not a whole lot to tell about myself... I'm a cartoonist, I have two comic strips called "I Just Work Here" and "Just Caitlin" floating around on the internet. I prefer traditional media (pen and ink mostly), but am working hard on my Photoshop Skillz. Or lack thereof. I like to read all kinds of comics, from graphic novels to manga to comic strips, and I'll read any book I can get my hands on as well. I'm also a hardcore sports fan and recreational soccer player.

You should self-advertise more. BigStareGun

I told someone, "I need to have a PR person who's friendly, outgoing, and personable.  Pretty much the opposite of me."

Meh, I force myself to be like that on the outside. Internally, I like my seclusion and don't feel like I'm ever apart of society or a group. ^^;

Haha, very cool! I do occasionally participate in contests.

I am actually working on a Halloween Contest piece so I don't know offhand if I'll be able to throw something together by Nov 20th, but I will certainly keep it in the back of my head! =)
