Rough news

Hello all. I have some unfortunate news.
While I was at Animefest last weekend, working on traditional illustrations, my carpal tunnel syndrome took a drastic turn for the worse. The cortisone shot I had last month has worn off, and all the work I rushed to do while it was working has exacted its cost. I have discoloration from circulation problems from swelling, grip strength loss, extreme stamina loss, and loss of sensation in the hand, as well as increased shaking and less fine control. It also tends to hurt quite a bit, but you suffer for your art, amirite?

I have a surgery pre-Op evaluation scheduled for the 3rd of September with the VA. I’m not sure when the actual surgery will be, but things are slowly moving towards that.

What does this mean for you wonderful people? Pretty much that I have to slow down quite a bit more on things, especially commissions and doodles for donations. They will be completed, but I cannot promise that it will be very soon.
Aside from that, I’m going to begin focusing on thus blog and the patreon as much as I can. I’ve already got an update planned, and am working towards completing it alongside back commissions and doodles for donations work.

Should anyone want a refund instead of waiting, get with me and we’ll work something out.

After some time to recover from the surgery, I should be back to full speed and updating here regularly.

I just want to say thank you. Thank you for being such an amazing both as an inspirational artist and a person. But most of all, thank you for being such an awesome badass.
I myself am autistic and face serious health issues, in general I feel like I can’t do anything right. But hearing how you go through life with all your own hardship and still do the great things you can do… well… let`s just say you make me want to work that much harder.
((I also want to sincerely give my deepest apologies for your recent troubles. I really hope you’re okay at this point))

Apologies all

Going to go off to be alone for a bit. No new streams for a day or two.  4th of July hit me a lot harder than I thought.  I thought the medication would help, but I can’t shake this all-encompassing depression.

The fireworks outside my house were too similar to the sound of gunfire.  I kept flashing back to seeing friends die over and over and over again, those horrible moments on repeat with perfect clarity.  Time hasn’t made it better, if anything it’s made it worse.  I can still see where I was.  I can still smell the blood and gunpowder.  I remember why I tried to drink for three years to forget.

Nothing against those who enjoyed the fireworks. I fought for the right for people to enjoy those. The sounds just bring back too many hard memories for me, memories I can’t bear. I’m not angry at anyone, I don’t want anyone giving anyone grief for how they celebrate. Just remember us - those of us who served our country, lost friends, suffer from PTSD for it.  The war never ends for us.  Please be kind.

Hey guys, I started up a Patreon! Please check it out. :)
It’s got all kinds of things you can get if you support, including ask priority, your characters put in as background or main characters, and free drawings!  Also, art lessons if you want them, if you think my meager talents worthy of being learned from.  ^__^

Getting a cortisone shot this Friday for my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome!

Expect a lot more productivity in the near future!  I’m going to try to get an update done and some prints ready for Bronycon, along with some other professional work that’s required ASAP for production for around that date.  Unfortunately, this means I need to set the donation doodles I haven’t gotten to yet on the back burner.

I WILL, however, be working on them when I can find time, and if I can’t until the con, I will definitely finish them after it.

Yep, I’m fully aware of the waiting list scandals.  I’ve been a victim of it myself, waiting on average between two to six months between calling in to schedule and actually getting in for an appointment.

I’ve been fast-tracked likely because of the situation with the VA.  Unfortunately, this shorter waiting list time does not mean that the quality of care has increased. For example, I requested full arm x-rays for my arm damage from my injury in the Navy - where my every joint in my entire arm was dislocated from shoulder to fingers due to dropping a 200+ lb bag whose rope wrapped around my hand before falling two stories - and only got a scan of my wrist.  I will address that later, but progress is progress.

At least things are starting to move, and I can only hope that how the VA handles outside consultations and appointment times improves, so we lose less of our nation’s heroes and give them the health services that they were both promised and deserve.

Good news!

I just received a letter from the Veteran’s Affairs hospital.  After nearly two years, they finally have me scheduled for a surgical evaluation for my carpal tunnel syndrome.

This doesn’t mean that they’ll actually do it, but it’s a step in the right direction.

I like how your feathers and fur come out. It makes your characters look so soft and wants me to pet and stroke them. I really like that in your art. Also the hooves looks just great. Wonderful.

Floofy pones are best pones.  I like the thought that they’re living, breathing things, and that they’re far more cuddly and fluffy than plastic.  :)

I want to purchase your art. Isn't that a compliment?!

Yes, and I am totally okay with that.  I should have a doodles for donations stream up soon, which’ll be a pay what you want thing.  ;)

For you! ^o^
