I've been pretty busy as of late - not just with art, but with getting my head on straight. It's not been an easy year: a lot of stress and financial issues, not really sure if being an illustrator is working out for me...I was down on myself for some time, and it bled into every aspect of my life. It wasn't until I realized that I have support where it counts, and even from people I never expected to get it from, that I finally found the optimism I needed to continue.
The job I'm at now has a lot of good people there. I've never felt like anything I did mattered at a job until now: managers usually aren't great anywhere you go. However, I have a few now that genuinely care how I am, and man, that made me feel so good. I actually want to go to work now (I mean not all the time - I'd rather draw all day, lol), and I miss my co-workers when I'm not there. It opened my eyes to a lot, and now I truly feel that things can only go up from here.
So, with that being said: I'm working on a few pieces, and I've gone back to working on SOMA. It was a tough decision since I had been working on Queen's Quartz, but I was doing it during such a stressful time that I fell out of love with the story. It's not to say I won't go back to it, but SOMA means a lot to me and I've neglected it for a year (a year!) and I had begun to miss it.
I do have a short preview of QQ that you can check out here: bit.ly/1v9a7Ao, and give some feedback if you like.
