First of all I want to apologize for not having today’s page of Lucky Lupin on time. Previous weeks when that happened I didn’t address it because I always felt people wouldn’t care, but I see that’s a bit silly of me to assume so I want to make it right.
Today’s page is late because I somehow hurt my neck in my sleep. I can barely move my head right now and it’s not only annoying but hurts like sin. Why it happened I can only guess, but it’s not the only thing that’s happened to me lately.
A week or so back I was also having terrible wrist pain from all the drawing I do. On top of all that, stress. Lots and lots of stress.
There has been a ton of things going on with me since December last year and I ended up letting some good habits go and swapping them for some bad ones. I need to remedy that ASAP.
As a freelance artist I have no health insurance through a company or workers compensation. If this type of thing happens, I fall behind on work and that’s bad. I live with my parents and have health insurance currently but that won’t last forever.
We are always alright until something goes wrong. We never want to think about when it goes wrong. Lately it’s been going wrong for me.
So I need to switch a few things around in order to make things work the way I want them to. Right now I have a lot on my plate. I’m an English teacher with new students, I got my webcomic and I’m also illustrating a kids book with a tight deadline. All of these matter to me except one… Teaching English.
One day I wanna be able to be an illustrator and writer full time. But for that to work I can’t afford these little incidents. So this is a reminder to myself and to other artists as well. We need healthy habits. We need to prioritize our health above all else.
If my neck is doing better by tomorrow then I will finish that page and post it up. If not, please be patient with me. I will get it done and I will do my best to keep on schedule with these. I love doing my webcomic and I’m happy to have readers for it. Thank you all.
As for everything else, with time I’ll make changes for the better I hope :)
