Back — in more ways than one!For the past week, I've been back “home” after being away since late August. During this span, my creativity was pretty much shot to pieces. Technically I had time to post, but my environment was really out-of-wack, leaving me fatigued and burned out on a day-to-day basis. No sooner did the day end, that I felt a compulsion to rest up for the hassles of the next day — and any unexpected events as well!
It even took me time to re-adjust after traveling back.
While I don't plan to do elaborately detailed, full-colour art for the foreseeable future, I do hope to post regularly again. I will do my best to keep it poppin’ and interesting.

I'm hoping to get this microphone, made by a small microphone company with mad electronics upgrades:
