Looks like I forgot to cross-post my hiatus announcement here.

But first, please enjoy this goofy, suggestive photo I took of some vintage rubber kittens (erasers?) from my childhood.

Bad Kitties

Cross-posted from FA:

TL;DR: Kindly just read the sections which I have bolded for your convenience. ;)

Okay. It's past time to say something. I'm genuinely sorry that I didn't say anything sooner, but I wasn't sure myself what was going on, so I didn't know what to say.

I have NOT disappeared forever.
I am just taking a break.

It was not a planned break; otherwise I would've said something at the beginning.
I do not know how long this break will last, but I WILL resume posting at some point.
...And yes, for those who have been asking, I'm still going to finish the comic. I just don't know when.

Just pretend I've been cryogenically frozen. :P

My life goals and priorities have decided to overhaul themselves without warning me. This happens to me sometimes. It's just the natural rhythm of my growth.

For a time, I considered art to be a job. I was exploring and testing the possibility of incorporating it into my overall career. This exploration led me to discover that, while I love doing it and want to keep doing it for as long as I'm able, it's just not My Thing in that sense.

I'll probably still open for commissions every once in a while (not too often), and I am still interested in doing comics and at least one graphic novel, which, yes, I may try to publish and make some money with. Someday. But art is clearly not the right choice for my full-time activity.

I am busy chasing down the best choice. I'm pretty sure I already know what it is, but I have to put in the work.

This period of my life is for the bullheaded pursuit of various life possibilities. I'm still looking for a regular day job, but on top of that I am also busy doing other activities that demand my attention. I have to do them now, because I probably won't be able to later.

I had to sacrifice something in order to free up the time and energy for these things; I sacrificed art.

I also sacrificed spending time on FA [and this blog!!], so please do not be offended or surprised if I do not respond to you.

It's not for good.
I'll be back.


howdy and hello there
