Hi everyone,

First off I wanna greet y'all a Happy New Year & thank you for sticking with me despite of me being a total failure.

I want to thank you all again for the help and support you all have given me when I asked for it. Something tragic happened, I turned to you guys, and you responded. Thanks to all of you, the financial burden I was facing was alleviated. Words really cannot explain how grateful I am to you guys. I am indebted to all of you. I will do my best to make it up to you guys this year.


So 2018. Normally I'd be wishing rn for this year to be great but the last time I did, my entire year ended up being a total mess, I mean not trying to be negative but yea enough of that. I will really just try and do my best, period.

So let me start with apologizing (a bad start already?😓) for the lack of updates with the commissions 😫. These past few days/week have physically, mentally, and emotionally drained me so I thought I needed a few days break and heal, so yeah I'm so sorry. First week of January I'm gonna do a few Patreon piece (cause I need that money ><) but yea after that I'll resume working on commissions. I'm not sure if I've already mentioned it before but I'm gonna do the old and new list alternately, still prioritizing the old list tho.


Ok that's it. See ya soon everyone!

Happy New Year man, I'm glad things are slowly working themselves out.
You were featured in my newest video this week. Trying to get people on the hype train for Raph's return :)

Dude, you went through some rough shit. Don't be so hard on yourself. We're all here for ya, and it isn't because you're a failure. I genuinely hope you have a happy 2018. I hope things that get better for you, and that by this time next year, you'll be able to smile a bit! ^_^ For now, just take your time until you're ready to get back in the swing of things. I don't think any of us can ask you to rush back to normalcy.

Just take your time with those commissions, until you're back on your emotional feet.

Wishing you the best, Raph. Thanks for everything and I hope we can do more commissions together in 2018 after you do that last batch of cheebs. You've done some really amazing art for Sneedham's Gundam project.

I'm glad that so many of your fans showed up to help you during this difficult time.

Happy new year man, and don't sweat the commissions. I don't think anyone expected you to just hop right to it after what happened.
