Hey everyone. This is an announcement I've been sitting on for a while since I've felt a little hesitant to go through with it but I think deep down it's something that is going to be for the best that I do rather than not doing it. Like the title suggests, I've decided I'm going to be taking a break from making art during the month of January. I've been pretty relentless in the last few months making art and I think it's finally taken it's toll on me and burned me out. Some of you may have even noticed that I have slowed down a bit during this month too, only putting out some edits here and there and a single original pic for Christmas. I don't feel like I've burned out creatively as so much as I've burned myself out physically so thankfully it's not a situation where I've hit that dreaded art block. I know that's something that can get so bad that it leaves artists unable to create anything for several months. For me this is more like I just need to take a step back from the constant stream of making art and just have a solid break.
There's been some people who are really kind and considerate towards me that tell me to take it easy and not push myself too hard and risk burning myself out. I'm grateful that people are looking out for me like that but I've always been a little stubborn and found myself wanting to keep pressing on and making some new content since there is never a shortage of interesting scenarios and characters to draw thanks to all the suggestions you've all shared with me. It's one of those things where there's always dozen requests on the horizon that get me all inspired and motivated work on them but then of course I'm not physically capable of keeping up with all of them to make art of them in a timely manner so I'm always aiming to do as much as I possibly can.
With all that being said. There's still a couple more edits I want to make before this month ends. Once I get those done, I'll likely not have any more content to post until after January ends.
So that's about it. Thanks for taking the time to read my little blurb and I guess I'll see you all in about a month. Then again I won't actually be absent during that time. I'll still be checking in and reading and responding to any messages that any of you have sent me during January so not to worry I won't be "gone" gone.
