I figure it's about time to add some kind of update here. So here goes...
Yeah I'm still about. I'm still rather unmotivated about drawing art that's worth sharing online, but I have been doing bits and pieces over the months (mostly little things and stuff for friends). The end of last year was particularly bad for difficult stuff happening, but I'm really grateful to my family and close friends for giving me support through everything. I'm also happy to say that, last month, I welcomed a gorgeous little kitten into my life. I haven't really stopped missing Neko, but got to the stage where I could accept that getting another kitten wouldn't mean trying to replace him. My other cat, who I love to bits, is fairly independant and quite happy with her own company a lot of the time, so it's just great having another one around as well who is interested in what you're doing and happy to curl up on your lap. The new little guy is called Koji (I liked the meanings behind it, and it suited him) and I am absolutely in love with him He's helping me a lot, and I'm glad to be able to look at photographs of Neko and smile, without breaking down into tears. Koji is now 11 weeks old, and a mischeivous little pain in the butt ^-^. In his calm moments though, he's super affectionate and cuddly, a beautiful little companion.
I'd also like to say thank you for the comments and favourites given, and thanks for the new Watches! It's nice to know that the work I have already shared is still being enjoyed even if I'm not producing as much new stuff. And I'll leave it here as the aforementioned new family member is demanding some playtime
All the best,
