Just wanted to say a few things.
As you may or may not have noticed, I seem to be taking a semi-hiatus from DA. It was only meant to be a couple of weeks - a month at most, but after realising my last real gallery submission was (exactly!) a year ago, it has come to my attention that the break has been much longer than anticipated. I think it's evolved into a hiatus. There are several reasons as to why I've been taking time away, and I'll elaborate on that next time. But let's be clear: I will return (I never intended to 'leave', anyway). And I haven't stopped drawing and I'm not sick, or anything drastic like that! (I've been receiving some worrying messages.) I predict I'll be posting artwork in 2 months-ish, but I guess it'll happen when I'm ready. (Y'know, personal journey, blah blah.) Thanks so much for your enduring concern and support, but rest assured I'm fine, just focusing on my personal life (and commitments).
Art for Japan
Thank you SO much to everyone who has participated in and supported my ART FOR JAPAN initiative. I will definitely update you on the commissions when I'm done. However, please stop sending me commission requests because the deadline was in March, and I am no longer taking any new ones! If you're interested in a commission regardless, please shoot me an email.
So, I turned 23 on 14 May. A lot of you sent me beautiful birthday messages, so thank you so much.
You are sweet. I received the best GODDAMN present in the entire universe and all universes beyond. It was actually a crazy awesome day, even though I don't really care about/remember my birthday. It's weird, though. I don't feel 23.
I have just realised that for some baffling reason, I have become a Senior Member. I'm perplexed and humbled, I feel it's wholly undeserved, and am feeling increasingly guilty since I've been away for so long. But nonetheless -- thank you.

. But... only sometimes? Haha, I'm guilty of being inactive there lately, too. But blame that on uni. I'll be posting again in a few weeks, once my exams finish. I post most of my work there - sketches, speedpaints, etc. Some photos. (And I will eventually post them here!)
I think that's all. Thanks for your patience. And thanks for those that are still sticking around.
Massive group hug.
