To my commissioners, past present and future.
First of all, i want to apologize, and let you all know that I have not forgotten any of you. I may be terrible with names, but I remember the commissions. And I wanted to say that I am sorry. Sorry that you all have had to wait for your art as long as you have had, and that some people may be losing their faith in me because of the delays.
Please let me explain the current situation, to let you all have an idea as to how and why my art has been slow to come as of late. Due to situations beyond my control, I have to struggle not only with the usual monthly finances, but also with medical bills and the ongoing menace of student loans.
I work a normal, if somewhat enjoyable 9-5 job at a call center. (technically 10:30 AM to 7 PM, but that is neither here nor there) and I live far from my work. Far enough that I have to drive over an hour there, and an hour back every day. Even with this full time job though, I still need to supplement my income with commissions. As you can guess, working full time with a commute like that, leaves me limited time to work on both backlog and what is needed for additional funds. I am looking into alternative funding sources, such as Patreon, but in order for that to work, I need to produce things for that as well, and you can understand the difficulties there.
And to further aggravate the situation, medical issues (anxiety) and hardware problems (computer is starting to die) is adding to the delays. I am not trying to rip anybody off, and I am working on getting everything scheduled and set up so that I can work on the backlog while getting enough funds to keep things flowing in a positive fashion, it's just hard to figure out with everything currently going for me.
I will say however that my job is going well, and if it does keep going in this fashion, hopefully I'll be able to make enough soon that I can focus on my backlog, or have more time to be able to work on art overall. I won't know that however for another month or two.
So, once more, I want to say I am sorry that you all have been waiting for so long, and hanging in suspense with very little from me. I have no intention to be unreliable, and I know that I'm not doing a good job at preventing this image, due to scheduling issues and anxiety breakdowns. All I ask is for patience and your continued support, as a lot of you have been giving me thus far. Please continue to aid me and I will deliver my promises to you all, even if they may not be as quickly as either I or you may have hoped.
Thank you once again from the bottom of my heart, for your patience in reading this, and your patience with me as well. Best of wishes to all of you with this new year.
