My Art Brain Is Temporarily Partially Disabled

My Art Brain Is Temporarily Partially Disabled

For those who may have been wondering why I've been so slow to draw or post anything, I apologize.  Work has been stressing me out and sucking away all my energy.  There's a light at the end of this tunnel in a couple months when I can quit but for now I'm regretting not taking that other one job a year ago instead of sticking with this one.  Even if it was another sales job at least I got holidays off... and didn't have to work commission unless I wanted to... and why didn't I take it again?  This job was fun for a while, but retail stinks sometimes.  And all my friends I stayed for have moved away or quit.  Let's just say things have gone d
