Recap Of The Week ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ๐ŸŒˆโœจ๐ŸŸ

Hello everyone! ๐Ÿ‘‹ Itโ€™s been a really nice few productive days! โ˜บ๏ธ First of all the other day I heard back from an old friend after reaching out. It was just so wonderful to know that he was okay, and that heโ€™s happy and doing well overall (aside from the occasional poor mental health that the current state of the country plus the pandemic has caused to so many of us.)

I ended up joining his server and itโ€™s quite fun to be in a place that is adjacent to my interests while also not being my usual group. It feels kinda fresh. ๐Ÿ˜Š

That day I also wore one of the newest ODU releases of my designs. ๐ŸŒˆ Iโ€™m quite fond of it:

Iโ€™ve gotten a ton of artwork done during the week. ๐Ÿ™Œ Got some cooking done. Grocery shopping done. Several baby snails have been born and overall my little clan is doing fine right now. ๐ŸŒ

Kotoko continually kept me company during the workweek. She napped near my feet and got petted a lot:

Today (well, technically yesterday โ€”Saturday) I couldnโ€™t take the stir-craziness anymore and went to Hobby Lobby. A couple of things caught my eye. There was a kit for LINE Friends bag charms. I LOVE Brown and Cony so much, but these are fairly obscure characters in the sense that you rarely see them in mainstream places outside of the internet. The kit itself was crappy but I was excited to have come across it.

I also saw a Spirit stepping stone. I took a photo for Nate to see whenever he looks at this post. ^_^

For dinner I wasnโ€™t very healthy but it was worth it. I made a big batch of homemade fries and had it with a little coke:

After dinner I finished shading all the shinies sketches so I might just finish all four tomorrow. ๐Ÿค”

Iโ€™m too sleepy to be able to write any more… guess Iโ€™ll proofread this tomorrow. Goodnight everyone. ๐Ÿ˜ด

Spirit & Rain Shirt Is Here! ๐ŸŽ

I’m sorry for being quiet. ๐Ÿ˜“ Between grocery shopping, moving a TON more posts from Instagram (still have over 1,500 to go) and commissions, I haven’t had much time for blogging. But I wanted to share this photo of a shirt that came in the mail today. I’ve wanted it for such a very long time:

As you can see the seller was lovely enough to send not just a print but also several stickers, for free! I can’t wait to wear it. I really love this movie. It’s one of the last truly great animated movies I remember seeing in theaters.

This shirt is by FoxLeap on Etsy, and is on sale right now. If you want to get your own, you can do so here.

That’s all I’ve got for you today, sorry that I have nothing else to share. Been feeling a tad burned out. ๐Ÿ˜…
