So, I'm almost done with the commission queue I've been working on for the past 3 years. I will have Dragoneer's comic completed soon and posted on FA, and Tach has already confirmed his completion of the Kate comic. I'm sure that will make people happy, Kate gets a lot of favorites. It'll be a while before that one is done and posted; if anyone recalls, I only work on commissions on the weekends now.

But whether I open commissions again or not depends entirely on my job situation. Even though everyone now has their own health insurance, the government still can't decide if places like the one I work for can allow seasonal employees to return to full-time status. Right now I am only permitted 32 hours/week and with my wage, that's not nearly enough to live off of (which is why I live where I do, rent-free). However, within the next 1-2 years my partner and I have to find a way to make enough money to find a new place. Commissions only offer a little extra now and again, at best. So unless something changes, this is what I'm planning:

If my employer allows me to return to full-time next season (which starts in March) I will continue to take occasional commissions. I'd like to take a break from them for a bit first as I'm feeling more than a little burnt out, and I won't be making another queue like before, just one or two orders as time permits.

Conversely, if they will not give me 40 hours, I will either have to look for another full-time job that pays more (good luck with that) or more likely, take a second part-time job to fill in the days I don't work. In either case, I will not be taking commissions again. I can't say never ever, but not so long as that work scenario persists.

So I have no choice but to wait and work and probe other possibilities, of which there are dismally few. As for my side projects, I will get them done mostly because I don't like leaving loose ends untied. Without going into a whole tirade, I've been having feelings of frustration and resentment about my art in the past few months. This is the reason River's Journal is on hold; I just don't feel like working on it. It's different than artist's block this time.....maybe it'll work itself out, maybe I need a massive change. Only time will tell.

At any rate, thanks so much to everyone who stops to browse my tiny corner of the net, and my deepest gratitude to those who've been so supportive, now and since the beginning. I'm glad you like what you see :)

Well, he's the last one on my list, so as soon as I can get Dragoneer's comic inked I can start Tach's final chapter. As for when that will be done and posted, it's really hard to say; it's been going very slowly and I work all week at a regular job, so it'll be at least a couple of months.

Hi! Sorry to bother you but I just became admin for one of D9 groups and I'm trying to make it more active.
If possible could you advertise this contest about the Poleepkwa Pride Day in a journal?
