Click the link for commission queue and progress.
This new public page saves me the trouble of constantly updating multiple queues on multiple sites. XD

General Updates
Hi. This update is surprisingly sooner than usual, lol.  But there's some important stuff.
Things are weird.  FuzziMutt business (plush stuff) is doing pretty great and I'm pretty proud, but I'm running into a few issues... elaborated further if you read on.  My [professional] freelancing is a bit quiet and I'm still trying to update and makeover my portfolio somehow between all the plush things and side commissions.  I'm a bit stuck as far as career/employment-related things and have a couple choices to make.  =\

Broken Cintiq. :(
My beloved 21UX Cintiq and tool of my trade... broke. T___T
The digitizer that recognizes Wacom styluses has stopped working, as diagnosed by a couple people and Wacom themselves.  It can be repaired for a decent cost, but one I can't afford right now since moving is in my future.  Thankfully I have my old brick of an Intuos tablet to keep arting with, but the transition has been harsh and art happens a lot slower and with more stress than I expect.  !firstworldproblems, maybe... but I ask if you are familiar with working at 110% speed and then being bumped down to like 75% speed but with the same workload. ;_;

What this means is a possible bout of fund-raising commissions in the future... maybe?  Because the irony is that it will take a bit longer to finish them. ^^; I still have a few folks wait-listed for various things art AND plush, but I don't think it'll be enough to take care of repair costs.  So there is a YCH idea I've been juggling for a while and may run some polls by to garner interest.  I could, of course, bring back the FuzziChibis, but feels odd after my most recent giftart spree. =\  Weighing some options.

It's not because "everyone's doing it," I've been genuinely asked if I'd consider one, lol.  I would love to, actually... for both art AND plush stuff— I have SO many ideas.  Chibi and plush giveaways, comic stuff, I'd be hyped.  But naturally, I'd need a significant amount of interest for it to be sustainable.  That and I'd need to get out and settled into a new place with a studio if I were to take it seriously... and sadly that's a goal creeping further away with financial setbacks like my Cintiq and stuff.  Therefore, I really need to pick up some stable work for a little bit to beef my savings back up and THAT would lead to less art time.  It all seems horribly ironic and is kinda stressing me, but hey, LIFE, lol.

:bulletred:TL;DR-- I am honored that someone out there wants to throw me money, but I want to be able to keep up content production... and for that right now I need money.  DX ADULTHOOD IS HARD.

Other Stuffs
In other news, I had the pleasure of attending :iconprincessrei: and :iconodin36519:'s adorable wedding.  ;w;  Congratulations once again, you two.  It was such an honor to share your special day, even if I was a bit elusive, lol.

Otherwise, I've just been trying my best to work through the oldest commission slots and stuff.  Etsy orders keep interrupting, which is not a negative thing, but a frustrating one until I find a fitting way to handle the order of things (without having to temporarily close the store!).  I'm finally getting to my wait-listed folks, however, so expect to hear from me soonish... and I guess commissions are back open, especially if I think of a fund-raiser.  That's it for now, really.  Look for some polls soon, tho.
