Cry Guy

I have had a really challenging year. Like, next level difficult across the board. I've been struggling with changes and relationships at work, I've had some really intense personal relationship upsets, and a month ago my father died in a car accident. 2015 can suck a bag of dicks.

For all of the above reasons, I am about to go on break from work for the next six weeks. This will be the longest holiday that I've taken in 8 years. One of the reasons that I decided to take this big break is because my creative juices have receded deep within me to an almost California drought-esque level and I'd be doing a disservice to my employers and to myself if I kept coming in to stare at the screen and scroll through the internet numbly rather than produce anything of value. I'm going to take care of myself, take care of my house, and probably cry a lot in the sunshine as I rip out weeds.

When I do manage to get drawing, I inevitably make the kind of work that isn't quite right for promoting fun student events but feels good for me. At least with this one the colours are fun?
