Hey guys, 

For those of you who follow the Twilight's Dollhouse comic, I thought I'd let you know ahead of time that there will NOT be a comic page this Friday  (and potentially next). I didn't want to have to skip a week so soon, but I've had a bit of minor tragedy in my house this week.

Galileo, my cat who has been a big part of my life since I was 6, was diagnosed with advanced stage kidney failure a few days ago. Unfortunately, he was so good at hiding the fact that he was sick that we didn't know until that point. Now we find that what we thought were normal elderly cat things were actually signs of something much worse. And at this point, he has only weeks - if not days - to live. We're going to take him to the vet again tomorrow to discuss if treatment would really be helpful for him. There is even a chance he may not come home tomorrow, based upon how much he seems to be deteriorating. I hope I get more time with him, but at the same time I don't want him to suffer unnecessarily. 

Long and short, rambling bit aside, the whole situation has me rather depressed, and I will probably be even more so once he's gone. I won't go into another long hiatus or anything, but I don't want to push trying to get out a page this week with what is going on. So, I will see ya'll in a week or two.

EDIT: Things at the vet went MUCH better than expected! His regular vet was able to give us a more viable and affordable option for treatment, and gave us a lot more ways to attempt to make him more comfortable. He's still in that last stretch, but the other vet we took him to (Our vet was closed for the holiday) didn't seem to think there were as many options to improve his quality of life and seemed to be pressing for euthanasia even though she didn't say it outright. He won't be with me too much longer, but at least now I have the time to say goodbye.

Still no page this week as I am already so far behind and homework needs to get caught up first. Next week is on the fence as Galileo's at home treatment is going to take up a bit of my time, but I'll try.

I heard the news about your cat and Im sorry....say bye to a beloved pet is something very hard to do...I lost my dog Luke due to both age and diabetes...I just feel that I could of been a better owner all those years. 

I just wanted to say that, Im new to your gallery (it all seems great. That Mark-skull is the best! POOF!! And the Twilight's Dollhouse comic seems to be promising, Im curious to see that in comic form...but also preparing to be creeped out because what she does in that story is just...argh...Applejack....)
Just wanted to say that I just came across and Im already loving your work.
You earned yourself a watcher, fan and possibly, good friend :)

Thank you so much :)

We just have to do the best we can when we have a pet. Eventually there comes a point where it doesn't matter because their little bodies just wear out, when we have to do our best to make the rest of their lives as comfortable as possible. We just have to remember that we were a bright, shiny star in their lives just as they were in ours. 

I hope I don't disappoint. The comic is a big project. 

And thanks for the watch! ^_^

Hey buddy!
It is me, :iconartybeat:!
Sorry for my long absence, this here is going to be my new account for a whole load of artworks.

Are you still interested in that art trade you were asking for?

I am technically on hiatus at the moment, but I plan on ending it at the end of the month (or so). But, if you're interested, I can start pretty much whenever :D

Would you like to do one of my ocs?
My dragon Glacier maybe?
Who would you like me to draw? :3

How about a dragon for a dragon?

Jae's (My OC) has been getting some updates, and this is what I'm moving towards.
