Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday and/or made me a gift, I always appreciate it knowing there are still those who care! ^-^ Turning a year older once again is making me feel, well old
It also makes me nostalgic for the good old times here when I had more interaction with friends and made art for friends, trading and collaborating and making those seasonal pics becoming traditional rituals. I wished it never ended, but I've gone off the path since 2016 when life was taking over and I began to have more of a... life.I was more career focused and got out a lot more such as hanging out with friends and getting to know new places in and out of San Diego. I've been to places like Germany, France and all over Mexico, but now I have a not-so-secret plan to travel to Japan (no bull-- I'm talking two weeks! More on that in a later discussion.
Also my eyes started to change for the worse and been having to constantly put in eye drops. That was the result of having the LASIK over a decade ago. I'm not against it, but seriously consider the risks if you're thinking about it.
Art-wise I'm back in business as you already know it. But I'll be upfront -- Sparks has to grow up as I do. I didn't like how the art regressed in the 2014-2015 period as I don't think it represents the true me, plus a number of longtime friends dropped me like a rock. I can't blame them, as I wasn't constantly talking to them anymore but at the same time I have no regrets since friendship shouldn't be so brittle like that. I still love pichu, but this username has got me locked into a corner where it's pretty much pokemon and dressups. But I will draw more than that, just not so often as I like. That is why my already scarce time can't be occupied with rps or random requests so please don't ask. I used to make commissions but unless I find myself jobless they will be infrequent too. This is more of a hobby for me and I almost don't take it seriously anymore but I still enjoy crafting together good content for everyone to see and I'm hoping that there's at least enough interest out there, but even if only a few make thoughtful comments I'll continue to hang around
Thanks for visiting! ^-^
