I'm sorry for the silence, especially around my birthday period, as I by no means intend to come across as ungrateful or unthankful or anything like that. The small explanation as to why is simply that (and this has been the case for a few years now) I dread my birthday. Every year it is the same, it becomes the single most stressful point of the year for me and I just want it to bypass without a hitch. This year was no exception, so I just shut myself off for a while. Even spent the day in the boonies without any reception so I could relax.

There was another factor this year though, and given the way most of my friends on here reacted to it, I am going to keep it to myself. But just know that at the moment, lately and for a while now - I get no enjoyment out of art. Been considering a long time about giving up, not because 'I suck' or anything arbitrary like that, I like my art and style and am quite proud of it a lot of the time, but because I am simply not enjoying it. It's not fun any more. And I don't know how to get that back.

But I will deal with my own problems, as I am the only one who can. Just thought I owed a little bit of explanation.


Sorry, and I hope you're all doing well.
Feeling kind of off.. going to stream for a bit. Come by and hang out. Music will be off as I am watching stuff, but if that stops working I'll put music on.

It's going to be casual, and not long. Have work in the morning.
