firstly I'd like to thank my new watchers and those who have given me faves over the new year - unfortunately I haven't got around to clearing out my messages yet so I haven't thanked you one by one, but I hope you know it's all appreciated!
secondly, thank you to all my current watchers for still being here. This year has been very quiet art-wise for me, and there are many reasons for that. I won't bore you with the details since most of them involve problems with day-to-day life and are not really that interesting but they are creating a block for me that is tough to get over (not necessarily an art block, just a general obstacle) so your continued support - as always - means a lot to me, especially when deviantart seems so quiet these days.
I am currently getting some health problems fixed and once they're done I shall hopefully be in more of a position to focus on my art on days when I'm not working. Ubtil then, I am still around to answer messages and such.
