I will not be accepting any more commissions for the foreseeable future. That's not to say I never will again, I just don't know when I'll be able to reopen my queue.
I had intended to continue doing a few commissions here and there, assuming my husband and my business would have a slow start. Turns out, we're p-much working full 40+ hour weeks now give or take. I hadn't expected that for at least 6 months (in fact that was the timeline every working professional in the field I've spoken to had told me)... but things have sort of blown up in the last week and a half and we're suddenly doing really well. So I guess we're getting a little bit back in return for all the life bullshit we've faced the past few years!
To my current commissioners: I still owe many of you updates and responses. I apologize sincerely for not being more accessible and will be attempting to "make it right" with each of you individually. Please be patient with me. I know I ask it a lot and I apologize for that too.
I also just really want to thank everyone who's supported me as an artist over the past few years. Many of you have been commissioning me since I first started contracting and it was with your patronage that I've grown into the artist I am today as well as have been able to help support my family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Even typing this I feel myself starting to tear up a little, so I'll wrap it up.
I'm still going to draw, but the focus of my life has changed to where instead of that being my priority it needs to become my hobby for the betterment of my family's future.
So one last time, thank you all so much for your endless support, patience and encouragement. I wouldn't have survived the past few years without you.
