baby check-in

Heya cuties,

I’m back on track with progress for chapter 18. I finally caught up on AO3 and replied to all 200+ comments sitting in my inbox, and with that came a new surge of ambition after rereading what you guys had to say about Home. I finished a few real-life projects too, so now I have much more time for doing illustrations! I’ll probably be posting another sneak peek within the next couple weeks :)

Thank you for your support! <3

I’ll keep it short tonight. Here’s me with our rescue cat, Kiki. She is 12 years old and acts just like a kitten. Don’t mind my dark circles. They are my hard-earned badges of courage.

I AM SUFFERING, LADIES AND GENTS, AND THE ONLY RELIEF WILL COME IN THE FORM OF A TRAILER. #DramaticExit

In 2003, John Clarke in The Times wrote that “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground” was “the most intense and startling blues record ever made”. Francis Davis, author of The History of the Blues concurs, writing “In terms of its intensity alone—its spiritual ache—there is nothing else from the period to compare to Johnson’s ‘Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground’, on which his guitar takes the part of a preacher and his wordless voice the part of a rapt congregation.”
