I've had enough of leaving you in the dark about what ails me and makes updates so rare lately. *phew* but it wasn't my decision alone to share this online or not, so... my boyfriend and I have reached an agreement that it's OK to tell you what's going on, 'cause I really can't stand it any longer, giving you lame half answers and excuses.
The truth is: I'm pregnant. Since April, actually.
It has been gradually eating up my thinking and free time, since this is a really big thing, and we're very very happy about it, but it has kept me from drawing quite a lot, as you can maybe imagine. My mind is simply mostly somewhere else, a lot has had to be organised, bought, etc. Also, it puts quite a strain on you, I've gradually needed more and more rest and simply couldn't bring myself to draw once I got home from work.
Two weeks ago my doctor and midwife gave me a sick note because the whole thing is progressing a bit too fast - the baby is expected in January, so I'll have to take it reeeaally slow now in order for it not to be born too early. Another week or two would be great because then everything will be ready and without risk. (It's already very safe, but every extra day is good). So I'm banned from walking and even sitting too much, that's why I can't work at my computer.
So that's the reason updates have been stagnating over the last months. I hope this will make more sense to you now. Sorry for not telling you earlier, but it's such a personal topic, it simply didn't feel right.
I don't want to announce a hiatus, maybe I can manage to draw on my old laptop, I'll have to see if I can set that up, but updates will stay irregular and impossible to predict for quite a while longer. Sorry for that, and thanks for being patient.
I'll probably post more sketches and small stuff on tumblr in the meantime, things I can make bad photos of and post from my phone.
Check there for updates on the situation and/or sketches, or just to say hi.
I love you guys, stay safe, stay warm and healthy, and have a very happy Christmas time.
