It has been a very hectic couple of months for me.
As some of you know, we are in the process of buying a house. We had aimed to move before Christmas, so the past few weeks have been spent packing everything into boxes. Due to one thing and another, we are now not moving until mid January. A little disappointing but I would rather these things were done properly so we are not caught out in the future.
As such, all my painting equipment is sat in a box waiting to be moved. I’ve not picked up a paintbrush for the last 6 weeks and I am beginning to feel it. However, have this lovely picture of some of my best painting work:
Amongst all this madness, my grandfather passed away at the tender age of 93. Nothing to do with Covid, just age. I didn’t make a fuss at the time, as I would rather not be asked countless times if I was alright. I appreciate people want to send sympathy, but at the time I just couldn’t deal with that. We couldn’t attend the funeral in person, but we watched it via live stream. Grieving without the support of other family members is a different, difficult process but I am working through it slowly and at my own pace.
I don’t want this to be a sob post, so instead, I shall tell you about Fulgrim.
Abaddon and Teal is a wonderful comic sharing the adventures of stickman Abaddon and his pet cat Teal. It started off as a joke nearly 4 years ago and is now, as my friend puts it, an institution.
I have used the extra time I have to animate some more. I am not going to share the results yet, as I have a long way to go, but Fulgrim dancing to Stayin’ Alive is coming on rather well if I say so myself.
As we are not yet moved, I am unsure when I will be back painting and posting regularly. I hope by the end of January.
Thank you to everyone for your support over the past year. May the next one be a lot brighter!
