Hey guys, I know it seems like I've been ditching a lot of art uploading the past month and a half now but rest assured I'm not dead. For one, my work hours have been on and off, so even with some of the days off I get I'd feel like I need to sulk from my usual habit of drawing and turn to something else. However that isn't just the case. Last month during the morning of the 12th, one of my youngest uncles passed away from a devastating car crash.
He was in his late 50s, yet he was dealing with bad back pains from his previous job, and though he had medicine for it, he rarely took any doses. With the position he was in before the incident, his current job wasn't paying him enough to take care of bills, so he seized the opportunity for a job in Ohio which nobody in the family was given the position that he was working. But he had to be there for his interview at five in the morning.
Well, he did make it to Ohio, and he did stay the night. But due to the nasty snow conditions on the road, he was on his way to the interview the next morning, only for the wind to pick up and carry his car into the opposite lane, causing a head on collision. The funeral was scheduled on the weekend and everyone including myself had a hard time becoming aware that his fate was not something that we could go back to change.
I'd told a few people about it from my brother's wife's family and they helped console me during my phase of loss. Since I'd told one of them in the past that I owned a 3DS, he decided to go out of his way just to get me a couple of eShop cards. He didn't have to but he said that it was his own way of showing affection since he's a bit shy in personality, so getting a new game did indeed help me get my mind off of things, after all something as strong as a loss in the family can also induce stress and lack of sleep.
With a whole month passed now, I am feeling back to my old self at least. I've jumped on Skype whenever I could to chat a bit with a few art buds to keep me in shape, and it always leaves me with a good feeling, even when I'm helping someone else in their troubles. So with that said I think I've stated all I could in my current situation. I'm still left with drawing on my WiiU gamepad for art since my tablet hasn't been looked at yet, but it should make for a good alternative.
So until next time everyone, I'll update again soon.
