I've just had a symbolic dream last night that really struck a chord with me. Long story short I think it was about not sacrificing what little vices I have left for the pleasurement of others or my psyche will perish. So I'm going to try to start holding what little I have sacred to myself and I've already made the first decision in this endeavour.
I'm not going to be opening for commissions. Not now, not ever.
I draw a lot of personal pieces that never get posted here; for the relief of everyday tension and stress. If I start drawing for others things I don't particularly care about for money this vice becomes more of a droning tedious job that frankly I don't need another of.
I hope you all understand, in these trying times I have little time left to myself to draw, barely enough money to get by and a steep decline of my joy. I need to keep my art a me thing and no one else; one of these days it might be all I have.
Thanks for reading, I hope you have a great day!
