Social Media Breaks and other Timely Events

Posted by CaptainDioShiba - April 12th, 2020


Okay so here's some news.

Recently I've decided to take a step back from sites like Facebook, Instagram, and even Twitter in hopes that it will help me get my own shit together. While I don't plan on quitting sites like newgrounds I've slowly been coming to the realization that I need to figure out some sort of structure and I suppose that social media has been more of a distraction from that more than anything else.

SO THERE'S THAT. However I guess with out social media I wouldn't have found out about things like the Six Fan-Art Challenge so I ended up having some fun with that. Good times.

Also I suppose that I've also been kind of learning how to appreciate myself in the present moment. I guess part of that has to do with healing from a lot of past traumas that happened but, all said and done it did kind of help me figure some things out, but I guess the more relevant thing here is that one of the reasons why I realized to why I make art (Even Fan-Art) to that extent is because I'm really just here trying to figure out the meaning of my own existence. Which I suppose is kind of pompus in it's own right but maybe that's why I'm really drawn to drawing certain characters that I find myself relating to in a certain sense.

Oh and Easter has been all right. Given that I've been mostly spending time with family anyways during quarantine that's sort of to be expected.

ANYHOW, right now between getting my own life together and figuring out how to keep building up my web presence outside of social media is going to be one of the things that I'm going to work on. I could consider opening a Patreon but I feel like I haven't built up enough of a following to really do that just yet so we'll see what happens from here on out going into the end of the year.

Stay safe all you lovely people.
