Back Again

0 min read
Yes, after over a year of being gone I'm back to dA, and with a new painting even. My body is still quite wrecked from being hit by an SUV, but I've decided to just ignore that and begin painting again. I hope to finish the book soon but I have a few paintings in my head I want to get out on paper before working on that project again. I'll be around and I'm sure I owe you all a lot of comments on your deviations so look for those. It's nice to be back.

  On June 6th of this year (that's about 6 weeks ago now) I was hit by a car in a crosswalk. I've been pretty badly injured, especially my spine. I have five herniated and torn discs in my back as a result of being hit and flung to the ground. This has prevented me from working on my art in any capacity. In fact, I can't do much but sit or lie around. I start physical therapy tomorrow and I will have to undergo several spinal injections and depending how that goes I will (likely) need surgery to fix the damage.  So I have no new art to show off, with the exception of two paintings I finished the week I was hit, for probably some time to co

I am closer than ever to finishing my children's book project. I have only a couple of pages left. I'll be working on it every day until it's done, so I'm looking at a week or two. I've been very busy with everything else, and I'm dying to finish this so I can freely work on some other project. Or a commission coming along to break it up a little bit. That would be nice. I'm not on the site much, but I'll try to leave comments on everyone I follow soon. :)
