Personal Quote: "Send the doctors straight to Hell! ... That's the down one, right?"

I am completely against cetacean captivity.
Yes, I have older photos before I became against it in my gallery, but I have learnt since then.

Hey all...

It's been a long while hasn't it?

Life has been a road of ups and downs the last few years, largely downs fro me. I've been living a very rough patch of my life, where things have been so very, very uncertain for me, living hand-to-mouth almost week to week. Almost all my long term plans and goals have had to take a severe backseat to things requiring me to just, well... to survive day to day really, rather than living. There's been times where things have been so dire financially for me that I've had to rely on hand outs and charity just to make it by.

It's been tough. But I've been powering through as best one can, given the circumstances. I've nearly lost sight of things, but good friends I've made on the way have kept me on the straight and narrow as best they can.

I do miss working on my art, sharing stories with the orcas and generally, art. But the drive, time and motivation has been at an all time low with the way things have been the last few years, hence you'll have noticed my output has dwindled down to near nothing. I do want to correct this... just not certain how to at this point of time. Suggestions and tips on how to combat this are always welcome.

But yeah. I wanted to let people here know I haven't forgotten or abandoned this account. I've just been on an extended hiatus while I work to try and sort out my own life and get back on my own feet and a balance back into my life once more.

I hope everyone who is still about is also doing well.

Hi, so, I just wanted to notify you that someone on instagram has stolen your comic about Morgan.

link: www.instagram.com/black.orca_/

I noticed it because I saw that they stole my digital painting of Trua, which they claimed was Keiko. I decided to check out what else this person has stolen from other people, when I found your comics on their page.

Glad to see you're alive man, by the next days I'll check on your commission prices and see if I can get one of your legendary pencil sketches.
