Happy Sunday Gnomedays, once again 💗
I started drawing this about a week and a half ago (I think?) – things weren’t quite as scary yet, then, but with my own recent struggles I guess I was grasping for some positivity and self care, which now feels extra-super appropriate.
I am honestly really worried. I feel like I probably don’t have to be as worried as I am, but the fear is still there. Two art work events that I was depending on revenue from have been cancelled, and hours at my day job are being cut because that job is in an industry impacted by travel cancellations. I’m not really sure how we’re going to make ends meet.
But I do know this WILL blow over, eventually. And I do believe that there are forces in my life that care about my well-being and want me to be on this planet. That’s not to say that terrible things aren’t gonna happen to me (I don’t live in a shiny protective bubble, after all) but if I lean on that belief, I will have a LOT better chance of getting through this. Positively. This too shall pass.
And in the meantime, we all do have each other. We can still reach out, even if it’s not in person, and support each other however we’re able.
I hope we are all as kind to each other as possible, every day, but especially today.
And if you can afford to financially contribute to the life of a creative person – whether that be by purchasing something from their shop, pledging on Patreon, buying them a coffee, etc. etc. etc. – PLEASE do. So many of us have been hit with event cancellations and probably other job issues too, and could really use the help.
Thank you 🌻
