“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”

Hello! I wanted to give an update on my situation and about owed art.
My grandma recently passed away peacefully in her sleep this weekend and I’ve come to terms with her passing; I dearly hope that she is reunited with my grandpa in heaven. I’m taking it rather…well considering that she had already shown signs of deteriorating health over the past year and my family was somewhat prepared in our hearts, but I imagine that the coming weeks will be a little difficult to deal with. Life is precious and we only live so long; please be kind when possible!
In the past few months, maybe even year(s), I’ve generally felt little to no motivation to get started on artworks, let alone even complete them to a degree that I’d be satisfied with. It’s been tough, to say the least, to look back on how often I was able to put out work and wonder what I could possibly do to get back to that level. I’ve realized, a little too late, that I’m most likely experiencing artist burnout after being so in-tune and productive before, and only focusing on commissions and adoptables.
I genuinely enjoy drawing others’ characters and making designs that people will like, but I don’t feel that I’m of the right mindset currently to tackle pressured work like commissions. That being said, I will still try to continue to design adoptables as they’re less stressful for me to work on; even then, I’m hoping to also focus more on improving my art and doing more personal work.
I’ll be doing my best to complete what I have left to owe! I have a waitlist of Dainty YCHs that I’d like to accept and finish, and a slew of customs, commissions, and art trades that I’ve left for too long. If I haven’t started on art that I owe you, you are absolutely welcome to request a refund/turn down a trade. I understand that I have not been timely with my work and I hope that when I come back in due time, I’ll be much more prepared to handle commissions and trades, but most importantly, managing my time and spurring myself to work despite feeling down.
Thank you so, so much for reading, and your immense patience for those that are waiting for art from me. I greatly appreciate your support; it means an incredible amount to me and I want to be better for you all. I hope you all are doing well!
