...and things have gotten really sour, really, really quickly.

But this won't be a negative sounding journal though.  :iconsuccessplz:

I won't go into detail with all the problems that are going on in real life; everyone's got problems in some form. But, there comes a point where you can't ignore whats happening around you and not ask for help when it's really needed.

You guys can help me out and, as a matter of fact, it's not like you haven't been helping me already.  The money I've earned from commissions has helped in ways you wouldn't understand.  And even more so, all of your comments about my work on this site are incredibly uplifting and keep me in good spirits (if you're wondering why I make it a point to try and answer as many comments as I can, this is a big reason why.  I just appreciate them all so much!)  The response I get for my work is so overwhelmingly positive that I'm literally baffled to point of head-scratching and word loss :iconmindblownplz:.  I just have to show my appreciation in SOME way.  Whether it's a picture dedicated to every 1000 watchers or writing a few words of thanks; I want to appreciate you guys.

Anyway, so yeah, life's giving me lemons but I'm not all sour-faced because there are good things happening too and positive words that I can feed myself that keep me smiling and determined to make the best of things no matter how bad this situation can get.  And if anyone would like to help me out money-wise (because I will need a LOT of it to get back on my feet), stay tuned for my next journal for more info on that.  I'll have news about commissions, original music, and possibly, prints (if I can set that up properly) that I will be selling.

STAY AWESOME you guys :iconsuccesskid2plz:

:iconctchryslerplz:

EDIT:  I forgot to say thanks for 11k watchers!  It's hard to believe how many new watchers I've gotten in such a short amount of time! :D

i have a good idea why you have so many waaaaaaaaaaaatchers :D
(despite your awesome art kdshfkjashd heheh yeaah)
the first piece i saw by you was of hana the "smile for me one"
I think it's because you put so much personality and background depth in your drawings personally it made me want to see more/watch/stalk your art. Your drawings seem like real people (who i wanna know dammit!!)
i'd kill to read a story about these people you winner you!! they're sooo interesting!
YOU keep bein awesome!

Keep you head up bro! The difficulties that we meet make us way more better and complete. My brain makes my life feel like a rollercoaster and often I wondered if it wouldn't be better to be utterly dumb and happy.

Keep pushing, there is a light at the end of the tunnel ;)

You're a great artist, and I started following you because of your consistency and speed in producing such awesome pieces. Not to mention I like that you experiment and not every work looks the same.

Life is hard sometimes, but you seem to have a good head about you so I'll just wish you luck. Keep up the good work, Bro.

Wow, very few people can stay as positive as you through hardships. That's a very valuable characteristic to have. Good luck and I hope everything sorts itself out in your life. I'll probably buy a commission from you to help you out if I manage to get a bit of extra money!

Best of Luck!!

When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make Life take the lemons BACK. Make Life rue the day it thought it could give YOU lemons. Get a science team to invent a combustible lemon that'll burn Life's house down. Take THAT Life.

douse them in gasoline, set them on fire, and throw them at life's house.

"When life gives you lemons, make grapefruit juice, and sit and laugh as the world wonders how you did it."

But in all seriousness, good luck! Me and your bazillion watchers know you'll pull through. You are an amazing artist, but more importantly, a very caring and thoughtful one.

Now go make some grapefruit juice. Actually, I hate grapefruits. Make some orange juice. Oranges are boss.

Good luck!
