First, it's been a week since I had that pathetic meltdown and insulted a lot of very good people....again, I want to apologize for the first 4 days this month. If don't know what I'm talking about, go here: simpspin.deviantart.com/art/Pu…
As for the actual drawings/art/whatever on this site, don't worry, it's not going anywhere. While I won't say older stuff is terrible, I WILL say that it looks incomplete, IMO. The recent "Bart in the Club" remaster is an example of bringing my older pictures into Paint Tool SAI standards because, well, I don't think SAI existed 8+ years ago and I didn't have a drawing LCD monitor. And if you prefer the older stuff, it will still be there. I didn't have the tools or skills to make the pictures look the way I wanted to back in the day, so this will be a nice way to update my gallery.
Finally, I heard a song (and then watched the video) that's so damn touching, I nearly broke down at work when the DJ talked about the particulars of the reasons behind the lyrics. It's called "Clouds" by Zach Sobiech. As he believes, "Embrace everyday with hope and Joy."

You never know what tomorrow might bring, so don't fret over the unimportant things.
- Listening to: My Angry inner voice.
- Watching: my life pass by.
- Playing: The fool.
All of us have had a bad or two on occasion. The trick is not to let the now-self do anything that will embarrass the future-self. It's a learned skill, but if you work on it, you will be happy that you have developed this ability.
It wasn't just a little comment slip, I went full out cRaZy in my meltdown. I think I must've had 4 months of job/life stress that I didn't get out my system, topped with about a month of the "whoa as me" feeling because I felt nobody cared about my pictures. Basically, it was a perfect storm.
I didn't think it was a little slip; it did appear to be a melt-down. I've had such in my life, too; enough to discover that the loss of friends is not worth the transient emotion. So, when I'm tempted to lash out, I've learned just to stay quiet. Eventually the feeling passes.
Glad to see you on the up, I can't wait to see what artwork you make next.
Thanks, I do feel A LOT better. For the next few weeks, I'm going to remaster a lot of my old stuff and have a commission for a non-DA up.
Good to see you're regaining the hang of things.
