Yay, I passed the kidney stone!! That is a pain I do not wish on anyone living or dead, friend or foe. However, they Doctor discovered a tumor in my left kidney (where the stone had come from), so that kidney has to be removed. That operation is next week and I'll be out of work for at least six weeks. :( This also means, that for the near future, I probably will not get any art done for a bit. It'll depend on how fast I can recover for the physical portion. I'd prefer not to have an operation, but this has to be done. On a positive note, I might be able to catch up on my Netflix/streaming backlog. :p

Earlier in the week, I was diagnosed with a 2mm kidney stone after peeing blood (never a good sign). So while waiting for it to pass (no surgery required), using the remaining of my PTO from work, the constant numbing pain with a side of intense pain, and the horror of my upcoming medical bills, I've mostly been sleeping, hydrating, and when tolerable watching or reading and doing my dailies in Genshin Impact while my medication tries to make the process easier but with various dice checks to my sanity (no nat 20 so far). It's been hard to concentrate on the computer screen for more than twenty minutes before I feel dizzy, so I haven't even attempted to do any art. Hopefully, this should pass in a couple of weeks according to what I understand from the Emergency Room and the earliest doctor appointment I could get is next week. Other than that, everything is a-ok. ;)

Finally got the Jim Lee's X-Men Artist Edition after much internal debate (I really want this... but it's out of my budget... I really,really want this... you have bills to pay... I need this!) and the fact that Amazon had it for $115 instead of $150 and I had a remaining credit to knock it down to $103. So I ordered it. First of all, the book is not a mere reprint of previous issue. They scanned Jim's actual comic pages and printed them at the original size of 11x17! So, it is a huge book. For reference, I placed a standard and hardbound graphic novels on either side of the book for better context about the size of it. The book is beautiful! It's a great tool for studying Jim's style and the inking choices in rendering his pencils. Here's a quick look at the interior (please excuse my fat fingers). I'll definitely be using this for ideas and reference in continuing to develop my own style... whatever the heck that is, as I don't know my own style. That job is up to the watchers.
