Alright so, I'm not dead. I've just been extremely busy with college and a bunch of other activities that have nothing to do with art. I think the most accurate word to describe my experience so far is 'interesting'.
I've met a ton of people, made pretty good friends, learnt lots of stuff (academical and life-wise), and well... tried out a bunch of new things. It might look like I've matured and all, but actually it's the complete opposite: I'm doing whatever I please more freely than ever. Don't worry, though, I won't do anything extremely unhealthy or immoral.
I'm really happy overall, and I hope you guys are doing well too. I'm on vacation rn, so it's drawing time!
