Posted by socksandjoggings - April 17th, 2021


The last couple of days I've been doing quite a bit of thinking. I'm struggling a bit with deciding just how personal I want to get here, but I want to say at the least that my ambition to make a living out of just my art (illustration/animation) has taken a hit. Separate from that I do believe I've managed to improve my skills quite a bit over the recent years, and perhaps that's the most important part (though I do notice myself cutting corners still).


What this means is that I won't be trying to stick to a consistent upload schedule for the time being. It absolutely doesn't mean that I'm dropping art altogether, to be sure. There are several ideas that follow me around that are begging to be made, but for some of those I also think I'm not quite ready yet.


Finally I wanted to say that Newgrounds has been the most enjoyable platform to post illustrations on. It's possible I'm biased because I've actually done somewhat well on here, but it has just felt the most... alive? As far as I know it doesn't rely on an alghorithm, pieces that are put on the frontpage are put on there by an actual person and finding new artists is pretty easy.


Thank you for reading and your interest in my work. Have a nice day!


Edit: typo


TL;DR: Figuring out how to make a living, dropping my upload schedule for the time being. I hope you understand!
