Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates or art in almost 2 months. But there is good reason!
First, Anime Expo 2015. And can I say, BEST CON OF MY LIFE. Went and met a lot of artists fromm the alley and even made a few more friends! Also, Pez, otherwise known as xLimbo
, and myself finally
met after 5, almost 6, years of friendship online! It was very emotional for us because we were friends through some of the most stressful parts of our lives and we helped each other through them. And now we can proudly say that we are friends in real life with no "but we haven't met yet" subtext.
Next is A NEW LAPTOP. Yes. My old one finally had it. It still runs... slowly. But after the last scare, I was done. Almost lost everything on it due to an operating failure, but we managed to save it. So for school, I got a new high performance laptop. So all is great, right? Nope. There was an audio jack issue where only the left sound channel would play. Now, coming from a family of engineers, we knew it was a hardware/motherboard problem. So not 1 week I had this laptop and I had to send it in for repairs. Its been 3 weeks. And I need it back by next Friday.
And finally. School. I'm moving into the dorms NEXT WEEKEND. Honestly, I cant wait. Everyone says that I'll be going crazy, drinking, getting tattoos, but no. I'm just glad that I can finally be...MYSELF. Not living under an oppressive roof where it has become a subconscious reflex to jump off my bed or computer and look like I was doing some chore or school work that I had done hours before. Finally, I can relax a little without fear of someone judging me from over my shoulder.
So in the end; lots of personal stuff happening. If you read this far, kudos to you! You made my day. Thank you
And also, I can't draw digitally until my laptop returns and it gets everything transfered over to it. And I can't draw traditionally until I can get packed, moved, and settled. Just know. I am still here and I am still drawing.
