I am constantly shocked when I get around to checking my own little part of DeviantArt and discover it's been a year or more since I last bothered to do anything. It never feels that long, in fact I'm pretty sure I only joined last Tuesday... Really, where does all the time go?
Like many of my other journal entries this one is basically saying that I am still here, though I have been terrible and not uploaded anything in quite a while. The truth is I've been ill for quite a long time, and remain to be so, and that puts rather a crimp in the artistic process for me. There are many artists who seem to be able to work through anything life throws at them and produce stunning pieces of art to share with the world, but I do not currently seem to be one of them. Saying that however, neither is this a pity post and things could be worse, I simply wanted to assure people that at some point new work will be uploaded here even if I still can't guarantee when.
I do think amongst my next lot will be an updated version of my old "Death of Obsidian Butterflies", which is already 8 years old and I've been meaning to remake it for ages. In fact I have the start of a remake from 2010 sitting here in my shockingly haphazard art folder (seriously Past Me, did you ever file anything in an organised manner?!) As well as that there will no doubt be more of Red, who one day may get a real name and be shown doing something other than tormenting her poor... sidekick... guy person, who may also one day get a real name. I'm sure they're looking forward to that just as much as we are. Other than that? Well, I suspect that's going to surprise me just as much as all of you. It'll be an adventure for all of us.
