Koi by guineapiggin
Koi
I was drawing today for the first time in a few weeks (been having a lot go on so understandably not really been up to drawing a whole lot) and decided to have a go at drawing a Koi. I love the folklore around koi and the fact that it symbolises strength and determination as well as growth and metamorphosis. I also love how the cherry blossoms survive harsh winters and bloom again. The Kanji reads "Hope" which is something I need to keep reminding myself of right now. I did this with my beloved Promarkers (much to my lungs dislike).

Blackpool Sunset by guineapiggin
Blackpool Sunset
I caught this shot just as I was arriving in Blackpool to see my boyfriend and there was something about how the sun peeked through the large rollercoaster and almost made it look like a skeleton. This was taken about 21:18 on my phone camera (so I am surprised at how well it came out).

Uploaded some of my more recent stuff. Erm... again sorry its been so long, I have just not had a good time of it recently and my health has been awful, which limits my motivation to do things.
Doodles by guineapiggin
Doodles
This was back in August last year when I was admitted to the hospital. I was so bored that I asked for some paper and with my sudoku pencil I sat doodling, the doctor came over to do the round and he saw my doodles and knew right away what they were!

Kingdom Hearts Cloud by guineapiggin
Kingdom Hearts Cloud
Working with markers has allowed me to get a very loose flow of drawing, especially when it comes to anime/game characters. This is just a sketch I did a couple of weeks ago. Hope you like it!

So today has been a bit of a "Mass uploads" day and decided to end the Hiatus that I didn't realise I had even gone on until recently. I had so many pieces just sat here on my computer and I kept saying "I'll upload it later" for a while. My bad habit of procrastinating strikes again really. OK so there are medical Seph pics, kind of a reference to how I feel right now (except he's more inclined to go and get treated whereas I try and do it all myself because I hate the hospital. Last time I was there, the consultant told a load of lies about me and to be frank, I didn't feel safe there) and I guess he probably hasn't been feeling too great himself.

One good thing has been the introduction of proper, professional carers again. I had them before but when they had some kind of funding cut, they were withdrawn from most people, except the really old or practically dying. My needs have changed and like it or not, I have to accept the fact that I am kind of at that stage where things aren't going to get better and eventually I am going to need a transplant, which means that I will be waiting for someone to die so that I can live.

I did take some time out from May, when I got my diagnosis and was told that I was essentially dying and would have 5-7 years before becoming desperately ill. I know it sounds incredibly selfish but I did need time to get my head around things, not to mention concerns for someone close to me and their health. It all happened in the space of a week and the group were all knocked back by it. I can't say for sure how my friend feels but he has done his best to make sure that I am having the best possible chance and he has taught me not to be afraid of confronting doctors (because let's face it, some of them can be assholes). I guess I felt bad because he received his diagnosis after mine and I was still reeling and couldn't help.

Since being on oxygen my life has improved a lot. I am able to do more and spend less time bedbound (even though today was a kind of bad day for me) and hopefully I can upload more and more stuff so you know I am still active and still making art for you all.

Take care friends!
