My hefty hiatus was caused by some important matters in my life that needed attention. It was related to both my work and my education. While everything ended well, I kinda spoiled the enjoyment of my success here by disappearing on everyone, so I'll just leave it vaguely at that. I won't hide this from you folks: I've even considered giving up on art altogether; I think I'd miss it too much, though. That and being a part of our community. Long story short, I've done everything I needed to and I thank you for your support; it meant a lot to me even I wasn't around enough to always properly respond to it.
The closest two months provide me with some time, so here are my current plans:
– I'm suspending my Patreon; I will no longer be offering rewards for monthly pledges because I had trouble keeping up with them even before my rush of responsibilities and it wasn't fair to keep my patrons uncertain and juggle between pledge suspensions and refunds. Time to end what I really can't handle.
– I'm instead reopening my commissions: they offer a workflow that is much more manageable to me, so I hope I'll draw your attention to them. If you'd like to order and illustration from me, you can find all the information and conveniently place your order right here.
– Blood Is Thicker Than Water will be sadly discontinued. The friend with whom I was creating the comic is no longer in the fandom.
– I'll use the time I can now spend on art by improving my efficiency and perhaps put myself out there a little more with regular streams and such. The possibilities are many, just need to see with what I'll genuinely pull through.
