long time no talk! what a crazy couple of months it has been... so much has happened (as usual!)
So what's been up? honestly it's been a very hard year, a hard summer even, but I'm glad to be updating you. I went through a lot of shit esp these past couple months; I became extremely ill and had been in and out of the hospital, but I'm back on my feet! It was pretty scary actually...
so I woke up one day in the middle of the night covered in sweat and shivering... i thought maybe i ate something bad, but i ended up collapsing from this! the next day i was in the hospital and from then on i experienced the worst abdominal pain i'd ever felt in my life for 10 weeks. I eventually had too much trouble eating and started to lose weight, and became very fatigued and anemic. everything was out of wack. i became so ill i couldn't drive or work!
and so many doctor and hospital visits, so much blood drawn with no answers. FINALLY, i went to a new doctor and specialist and had a procedure done where tissue was taken from my stomach and intestine (YUCK!) turns out I have celiac disease, and autoimmune disorder where your body attacks itself when you ingest gluten D: and so now i am on a super strict diet forever lol, but at the very least symptoms should clear up after adhering to a strict diet for a few months.
aside from that, I've been working again, moved to a new town, and am about to move to another... (life is crazy!).
Its been most painful to not be able to do updates with my comic. I switched to a new profession in the hopes that I can organize myself to be able to resume working, and I anticipate that I will be able to very soon.... it seems each time I wanted to get back to launching things, something would come up!
but aside from that, some great things have happened too. Connections, the anthology that I participated in came out connectionscomic.wordpress.com…
and Dirty Diamonds is next! I'll post links to those things soon.
Despite any difficulties I've endured, however, I am glad. I have gained so much inspiration from these struggles. I want you guys to know that I NEVER stop working, even when I'm not here. NEVER. and I'm happy to say that the experiences I've faced this year are giving me a lot of artistic direction. I feel no doubts that I will be giving you something good soon, and I thank you for your patience.... but aside from me, what have you all been up to? please update me and link me to your shit!
