Not strictly a hiatus but...

Posted by waffrus - April 5th, 2021


Got diagnosed with breast cancer. Had my first round of chemo today.

Still feeling pretty okay. Oddly, the pollen season has had more of an effect so far.


EDIT: Got allergy meds, so pollen is not an issue anymore. But man, the chemo packs a punch in nausea. So got meds for that as well. It took almost a week to get some semblance of normal.


But there's still more treatment to go and things will start feeling worse. So probably no major updates for a while.


While recovering, I'll be working on the script for Colors of a Feather.


There's another short bread themed thing I want to finish, but not sure what sort of art direction I'm going with for that one. It's also iffy on whether I'll be able to draw digitally during this time... Some on-and-off light sensitivity right now but that's probably the pollen.


Anyways. Sometimes life gives you some real sour lemons, sigh.

In case anyone is afraid to ask. It was caught at an early stage, so survivability is pretty good.


Hope everyone has a better spring and summer than mine haha.

Let me just start by saying cancer sucks. I'm glad it was caught early and wish you well during your treatment. The hiatus doesn't bother me as I held out hope for 6 years for a rerelease of the Scott Pilgrim game. I'm used to waiting for good content.

Yeah, cancer really does suck. Thanks for the kind words and patience haha.

I'm pulling for you. Good luck waffrus.

Thanks! I'll do my best even if it just feels like I'm sleeping my life away these days oops.

oh i hope everything ends up okay :c

Me, too. You'd think this year would be better than the debacle that was last year, but oh well. Thanks!
