I am done with the main batch of icons, which I'll be uploading this weekend. Any incentives I don't manage to finish by then will follow as soon as I can finish 'em.
Sometimes, things take longer or are more difficult than you planned, even with lots of practice and the best of intentions. The important thing is to keep working until you've done what you promised to do, and admit when you've goofed. I didn't send out updates the way I said I would, I've taken longer than I said/thought I would. I'm behind on some mail. I will save further and hopefully more interesting and useful analysis of the Icon Day project as a whole once I actually am caught up, because right now I feel like I've failed at being professional. I feel as if I've let my mental illness get the better of my work, and the business I've worked so hard to build, and that's my personal responsibility to deal with. A lot of really exciting stuff is happening for me, right now, and I don't want to muck it up. Luckily, I have a lot of support, plans for addressing the challenges that have come up, and I'm committed to making every attempt to see it through, running my business smoothly, and making a ton of awesome art. So... yeah, that's about where I'm at tonight. Icons this weekend.
Monster Day is this Sunday, for those of you who would like to celebrate! I will need to be working on non-monster day art but will be listening to monster songs and watching monster movies while I work.
