After taking a few weeks to see how much free time I have left for drawing, I've come to the conclusion I just simply don't have enough to warrant keeping my Patreon open. This was not an easy decision, as it feels like I just started it, but it's not fair to my patrons to try and keep going if I can't produce enough art. I am, of course, still going to finish up the couple sketches I owe as rewards, and will certainly try to draw whenever I have the time to. As for the state of the Peony comic, it will almost certainly be on hold for a while since it takes a lot of time and effort that I simply do not have lately. Hopefully at some point in the future I can continue it, though it may go in a different direction than it currently was heading. Right now though, I need to focus on getting my life sorted out so that within the next few years I can be in a better situation.
That said, even though this new job is super demanding both physically and mentally I really like it. Working with animals all day is sort of a dream come true for me- though honestly, dealing with customers is the biggest drawback, same as with any retail environment. The managers are all really nice and I've learned a ton both from coworkers and from reading lots of pet care books on my lunch breaks. The hardest part is just how bad I feel when a pet isn't doing well, it breaks my heart.
