Chris is really overdoing it with the commission posts, huh?
I just wanted to make a post saying “Thank you”. I’m well aware of how things have changed on this blog(I have some ‘nice anons’ who like to remind me of if everyday on my side blog. Lol.) and I know that it can get pretty annoying to see me reblogging the same things over and over, or plastering my commission info all over my art.
I know it’s obnoxious, but I do it anyway. Why? Because this is how I’m living. This is how I’m paying my rent, and buying groceries, and taking care of my pup. This is what’s been keeping me emotionally well, after the nightmare of what happened at my previous job. (Long story short: That situation has me severely opposed to getting back into a working environment outside of my house again. I was not healthy. I am still recovering. It’s a long process.)
I’m not very open about personal things on this blog, so I know the transition from “weekly comic updates” to “nonstop commission spam” came like a late night thunderstorm; fast and without warning. For that, I apologize. You should be in the know. Obviously, many of you knew that I lost my job in December, but not everyone knows or understands why I didn’t return to working at a different one. Again, without getting too personal, all I can say is that my health was so silently and severely effected by the last job, I’m not wanting to jump back into that environment. I’ve been able to make do with my art up to this point, and while it hasn’t been easy, I’m forever grateful.
Which is why I’m saying thank you.
Thank you for commissioning me, especially those of you who have commissioned me multiple times!
Thank you for supporting me on Patreon! It’s been a slow burn, but I truly believe if we can build up that group, there will be a huge transition from commissioned work to more free content again!
Thank you for donating to my PayPal “just because”. A few of you have sent donations and asked for nothing in return. That is a kindness my small existence may never be able to repay.
Thank you for sticking around, even through all of the commission spam, and reposting, and discounts, and sales. It’s these weeks that I feel especially guilty because business is slow, and if I’m not working, I’m not able to pay my bills or buy food, so that wild desperation sends me into that “repost, signal boost, sale sale SALE” frenzy, and I can’t thank you enough for being patient with me through this.
TL;DR: Thank you for helping me. Thank you for giving me my livelihood. I would be absolutely nothing without all of you.
