The Gap Year
As my boy comes up to his first birthday, it occurred to me that I haven't dropped a single update. So here I am, a little late, and feeling really guilty.
I took an unexpected hiatus from comics for a while due to the surprise early arrival of my little boy. He was a full month early so we spent some time in the hospital with him... I can admit now after a year that it was a very... changing experience. All the thoughts I had about how I was going to be as a mother went right out the window. I was hurled into a world of paranoia, anxiety, and fear right off the bat. I lost all creative energy and/or motivation. I was just razor focused on keeping that tiny bean alive.
With some time, I've recovered pretty well. I've been working on other projects to get that artistic flow back and revisited some things that brought me joy and inspire me. I've shied away from social media but I'm starting to come around again.
Thank you for being patient with me during this past year. I appreciate your support and kindness, and I'm ready to get back to work.
