I'm sorry guys. The stress of my job on top of freelance and commissions has just really taken its toll and after fighting for a long time to try to make it as an artist I'm tired and I just want to come home at night and take care of myself and spend time with people I love. I need exercise and to eat right and to sleep well. I'm tired of getting sick and being in pain because I don't take care of myself properly. I've been fighting back and forth on this for so long and I just have to stop and accept that I need to prioritize rest over constantly working myself to death, and the best way to do it is to stop adding more to my constantly growing to-do list.

I have a few commissions left and a few trades. Then it will be mostly plush from there on out as I need to fulfill rewards and finish some work for direct sales, which you can find on my plush account Patchwork-Shark. I don't know how much I will be posting here.

I don't intend to fully leave art behind! But things will be a lot more quiet. I know I haven't responded to a lot of messages and I barely comment on anyone's art anymore. I just lack the energy to keep up. Please don't take it too personally if you don't hear from me very often, and I apologize if I no longer post here over time. I loved sharing my work with you all and seeing your work too, and it has been an amazing decade of awesome times with you guys. I hope to still keep in touch when I'm able!
