Mom just went through 12 hours of surgery yesterday to remove a tumor from the meninges. she is fine and no harm was done to the brain, nerve endings and arteries.
That's reason 1 why I've been gone for so long
Reason 2 was 6 month long unproductive period
reason 3: I've been busy setting up a t-shirt business with a few friends.
so mom is "fine", the business is almost running and i'm back to the drawing table, soon enough I shall resume the art posting
