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