First of all, thank you for reading the journal, I know few people do. You're the type that cares.
Okay, it's been a long time. And to me it just flashed by. I wanted to cry when I was told it's the last day of February tomorrow. Am I that old? Time, not so fast!!! Please! I can't even rest as done!
It's very hard to go back to art. I knew it would be and I knew it's wise to use the 4 month charge to keep drawing, that was the aim after all - to make me get used to drawing every day. But I was so tired, I had no days off for 4 months, I still can't believe I made it. So I let myself rest well and... well, the best I could do all this time is practice to stay in shape for the moment when I'd be able to draw again. When stars align and I have time, enough time and not a bunch of 5 minute shreds.
I need to dedicate a whole day to art to get somewhere. But by the time I sit down and know I can now draw it's 3 AM and I need to sleep to not be a zombie tomorrow and at least have a hope to have some time. Well, today I decided I'd just go ahead and use the night. So I managed to even upload something. Wow. I'll be a zombie tomorrow. Don't shoot me, I behave.
I know many people wait for the comic to go on and for some Patreon art, I have many obligations and I'm very ashamed that I take that long. I try to maintain some balance to not burn out in one single dash and to still be able to keep drawing. It doesn't help much but know that I think about my little Eri and art in general every day, I'm not gone, just fighting through the routine.
Yep, that's it, I guess. Thanks for your understanding and support, guys. I can't express how much I wish I didn't have to work, eat, sleep, do anything useless and time consuming and just spend some time with my family and draw, draw, DRAW. So many ideas, so little time. One day...
Oh, and if it helps - 4 months of every day uploads and 2 months of silence is same as 2 days uploads and 1 day off for half a year. Just... use your imagination, pretend I played the cards right and didn't do anything as stupid as 120 non-stop themes XD
Sorry. Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry... (c) Mei
