Goodbye June bugs, Hello July Butterflies

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 29, 2014, 12:49 PM
Gallery | Watch Me | Note Me | Facebook

I have been terrible about updating my journal entry once a month. I think my last one was back in February. Since my last emo entry, I have come quite a ways psychologically and emotionally. I think I have surpassed the peak of my depression and anxiety. I am no longer on happy pills, I go to work everyday, I am able to sleep again, and I was able to finish a drawing. So things are starting to look normal again-- about 85%'ish.

Anyhow, I have been a hermit doing completely nothing for the last 3-4 months. I started going out more with friends and family this month and I feel good. So hopefully I can be more productive and creative now that I feel much better. I do have a huge commitment to my next drawing. I have only worked with drawing water twice and they were minor parts of the drawings. I have always wanted to do a piece with water, but have always been too intimidated. I am finally going to overcome that fear and try my best to render flowing water. It's kind of ironic because I have a drowning phobia. I may not be able to conquer it in real life, but I'll be damned if I don't conquer it on paper.

I hope everyone is doing well. I will keep this entry short and sweet. Take care and talk to you later!

Still going at it!!  You'll hopefully understand why it's taking me so long when you see it. :lol:  Easily the most time I've ever spent on a single drawing in this style.  Just doing my very best to not screw it up...too much. :P  Thank you again for being so patient!  I think by the time it's finished I'll owe you another drawing on top of this one.
