Well. I hadn't realized it's been about a year and a half since I've posted a journal entry. I hope I remember how to communicate with other humans.
Without getting into too much detail, it's been a long, rough couple of years for me. In addition to the workload of my (hopefully, more on that later) final year of art school I've had several damaging, life-changing events happen that I can't actually mention for reasons, and they've taken a huge toll on my mental and emotional health and consequently my art. I've been really lethargic and sad and it's just been killing my motivation to do anything but lurk, so that's why I haven't been updating or responding to any comments. I've still been sketching things to keep myself sane but I haven't been able to get myself motivated to do any actual pieces in a long time. The paintings I've done for class I haven't liked enough to post here. For the sake of letting whoever is still paying attention to me here know that I'm still alive, I might post some of my sketches here but no promises.
In addition to my mental state destroying most of my inspiration, I'm having to put extra work into school for the next few semesters as I've fallen about a year behind. About the same time as my downward spiral started I was put on academic suspension by the university and had to take two semesters off. It's looking like I'm not going to graduate on time, but if I can manage to crawl out of the hole I've dug for myself and take extra classes maybe I can graduate only a year behind instead of more. Which means there will most likely continue to be a lack of updates even if I can get myself together enough to make art.
So, I guess that's about it. I apologize for dumping my angst on you guys, but I feel like I owe you all an explanation as to why I haven't been updating or responding to watches and comments. I just want to let you know that I am not giving up on art or this site anytime soon! It'll be slow going but eventually I'll be back to posting art. Thanks for staying with me even through this long period of inactivity!
