Hi everyone! Long time no see!
Just wanted to pop in to let you know where I've disappeared to. In case you were wondering, I'm still here! Mostly kind of lurking lately, but I still come here fairly often to see what's going on. I just haven't been hanging at the computer much this past year.
Last January me and my mom combined our strengths and cleaned up my apartment, which was great (as my den was kiiiiind of a dumpster), but it had the surprising abd unforeseen side effect that it kind of changed my entire life rhythm from spending most of my free time every day at the computer, to only turning the machine on maybe once or twice a month to pay bills. Like, it was a strange change of life for me, I've spent so many years practically glued to the display screen and suddenly I just... Didn't.
Also my computer kind of fried itself last month, and I won't be getting it back untill after the holidays, so I'm currently kind of stuck on mobile.
Also I got a full time day job last August, that will last untill the end of March at least, so that's also a thing! I like having enough money to pay the bills, even if it's cut my free time tragically short.
I still hang online a lot, but I just mostly do it via phone now. And there's one big downside to that: I can't scan stuff with my phone. As DevArt has always been a place to put better quality art for me (or at least better quality scans of my doodles), I haven't really had chances to update my gallery much. I expect there might be a bit of a flood of new art once I get my computer back, but in the meantime, if you like seeing my art, and don't mind them being phone photos, you can see the newer stuff over at my Twitter (twitter.com/Paperiapina) or Tumblr (papermonkeyism.tumblr.com)*.
Twitter is mostly just art, with very little else, while Tumblr is where my brain leaks all the stuff it comes up with.
Anyway, thanks for hanging around! And sorry for the silence, I really don't know what happened.

* I know tumblr is kind of in the process of shooting itself on the foot, big time, but Pillowfort isn't open yet, I have been on tumblr since 2012 and I have no place else to dump all my random thoughts into.
