I auditoned for the Haunted library and since I was accepted today I decided to put my audition up here, this was done like 3 weeks ago.

Honestly I dont know what else to put up, I’ve been struggling with a bunch of issues lately and I know some of you miss my daily drawings so, here you go while I pick up the pieces or something of the sort

When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can’t make them change if they don’t want to, just like when they do want to, you can’t stop them.
