Honestly I have nothing much to say except I'll have more time to draw now than I did for the past year or so hahaha. Last year I was immersed on my thesis and after that I took care of my grandfather--at home and just weeks ago, in the hospital.
My grandfather. I lost him recently. And now he's in the spirit world.
I can't express enough how I'm both saddened and relieved. The past year has been challenging since we all had to deal with his lung cancer and seeing him suffer through it all made me feel no less happy for him now that he can breathe all the fresh air he wants. We weren't the closest as we can get but he'd been a very nice and generous grandpa to me and my brother and we couldn't help but love him all the same. And being his somewhat nurse the whole time, I'll definitely miss my routine checking up on him, making sure he eats and takes his meds and calling up his oxygen supplier for him. It was heavy. And to him, it was a fact that was hard to accept.
To all my friends who beforehand expressed their sincerest condolences on FB, thank you very much. My family appreciates the support. And to my dA friends, I'm saying this just so you know what was keeping me from being on here for the longest time. The cons were part of it, Hetalia Day was part of it, but this is the reason why I'm problematic for most of the year. Right now I'm just catching up on sleep and ample rest. After that, I'll make sure to take care of the art I owe and the gifts I haven't made before the year ends.
I'm writing this on the anniversary of my grandmother's passing. Now they're together and dancing on the clouds to their heart's content.
I rarely share personal things on here, to be honest. But I'm happy to share a piece of my personal life on here from time to time.
After all this, I want to draw more Pokémon art. It's the backlash that was waiting to happen and the frustration pent up after long months of waiting. I still have the story to do, which I hope you'll all look forward to.
Thanks for the continuous support, everyone. I appreciate it!
