So I am getting messages from multiple people who are concerned for my frequent disappearances lately, so here is the update:

1.) The past several months, work has been excessively difficult. In addition to problems with a problem client, there were issues with the companies we are working with, fuddled paperwork, incooperative agents, and so on and so forth, that have been affecting my mood, stress levels, and health. Thankfully, they are largely resolved, though a few more issues need to be cared for before I am fully reprieved.

2.) My physical and mental health has been fluctuating; there are days I am super active, there are days I may as well be proclaimed dead on arrival. In addition to this, medications which have been helping me are also hurting me in unforseen ways, but I can't just drop them and make believe I'll get better without them--I do genuinely need them or else I will be barely functioning. I am making efforts to see my doctors to make sure my needs are covered without compromising other efforts in keeping me healthy.

3.) I honestly just don't have a drive to be in deviantART except to post my art. When I am online, you are more likely to see me on Tumblr, though admittedly, my activity there drops on occasion (mostly because the community in Tumblr, as much as they are much more active, is also REALLY loathesome). With that said, I do see your Notes, I do see your tags, I do see your messages. I'm either flaking and being a total ditz and not replying back, being a squealing fangirl because folks are giving me headcanons and story ideas and even fanart, or I'm a depresed or lazy (usually both) ass.

But I am drawing. I am doing commissions, I am doing concept art, I am doing gift art/art trades and such; I just don't vocalize it. I also have a Picarto channel where I try to set aside a weekly time to do livestreams on any artwork I will be working on, be it commissions, concept art, fan comics, or even free requests. I'll see if I can make it a habit to remember my deviantART exists and that I announce these streams as I am starting them.

Also, I have created a means to help me get a more consistent drive and inspiration for my Ba'tala works. An interactive Ask/RP blog is made for the entire setting of the Ba'tala, so you can interact with literally anyone of any timeline within the Ba'tala world. Not only will this give me the creative juices I need to keep going, but it'll help me build on areas with holes that still need filling. You don't necessarily have to RP--asking questions and harassing talking to the inhabitants will do just fine.

So there's that. My apologies for worrying you folks and for vanishing from the planet. I try to do my best to be active, but right now, real life and health comes first.

I'm thinking of a joke with Kaiser and Glass Joe over parking spots. (As a reference to Alsace-Lorraine)
