What Is The Money Going Towards?:

   For all of you who aren’t aware, my (adoptive) dad was born with Fairbanks Disease. You may ask, “What is Fairbanks Disease?” to which, I have some answers for you. Its technical name is “multiple epiphyseal dysplasia,” which can be defined as an autosomal dominant skeletal disorder (autosomal, meaning it relates to any chromosome other than the sex chromosomes). This can refer to stunting of growth in all bones (in a lot of cases), or bone disfigurements. My dad was born with the latter form; deformed hips, knees, ankles, and feet. It’s an early-onset osteoarthritis, which makes it extremely painful and difficult to move around. Throughout the years he has had to buy special wedges to put inside of his sneakers just to fit his feet in them normally (his heels never touch the ground because of Fairbanks). My dad has multi-layered patellae in his hips and knees, which makes walking a task. He has both a walker and a cane, but tries to only use the cane, in which case I walk with him and make sure he doesn’t fall. There isn’t a lot about Fairbanks disease that is known, and it is considered a rare genetic disorder (1 in 10,000 births).
My family makes a yearly income of $33,000 USD, and our current insurance is less than desireable. My dad decided he wanted to get hip and knee replacement surgery this summer, but we don’t have the funds for these procedures. From what we’ve been told, it will cost us over $15,000 for both surgeries and rehabilitation (even with the insurance coverage). I’m investing the money I have saved from my part time job/full time job into helping my dad, along with any commission money I earn. Anything left after all bills are covered will be donated to a charity organization based in the Lehigh Valley. At this moment, we have no income other than what I’m making. Disability still has not gone through our state government, after nearly 6 months.

In reference to my commission poll; I will take up to 5 commissions at once! Each piece will be done in approximately 6 days or less (unless I contact you about conflicts in my schedule, which, I ask you to be patient with me because of that) depending on the median and the amount of details you request.

im pretty dead on here but im making a SLOW come back lol
%
So hey this is pretty awkward, it's been pretty dead on my profile for the better half of 2014-2016 so here I am! Alright so, long story short: stuff went down in my life as usual, school sucks, I'm stressed out, aaaaaaaand I've moved more towards traditional art because my computer is a piece of you know what. AND YET I DIGRESS ONCE MORE.
 I've been in musical theatre hell and am Hamiltrash (among other things). My boyfriend has been pretty cool, we've been dating for over 2 months now but he's been every kind of sweet to me. Anyway; here's some promos for some friends

        FRIENDS TO LOVE
 ADrawingBanana is a hella great artist who deserves some love, I love love love her characters and the way she colors (she's also a little younger than me and is such a better artist I'm so jealous)
 M1ssNautilus y'all should know her by now, I talk about her waaaay too much because her art is perfect and everything is perfect about her she's sweet and really kind and amazing I love her
 pastelbabby hey remember this cool loser? because she's progressed so much in her art and she's so talented. not only is she a great artist, I've known her long enough to see her improve and grow as an artist and person. (basically she's incredibly perfect)

              where do i find you????????

hello my lovely darlings! i hope you all are doing well right now; so here's some quicky updates on stuff.

im really stressed out with work and school and home life things which im trying to resolve asap but its difficult. im going to try to art more often?? i just haven't had the ambition or motivation to do anything more than what i need to; and i get about 3 hours of sleep a night so that on sundays im completely burnt out from work and school and i sleep the whole day. so free time isn't a thing really.

im also dealing with my awful ex who keeps harassing me through social media even though we cut off ties nearly half a year ago, and broke up almost a year ago.

so that's fun. anyways:

tldr?: shitty life shit that everyone goes through + less time for art but will try to art more bc its the only stress reliever even though it stresses me out even more

thank you all for being so patient with me through all this!!!

much love,

    -grote
deviantart has a new hud now? ok. it actually looks really nice i like it
im in the middle of class right now lmao but i wanted to see if there was anyone interested in doing coloring for me for my lines (which are always a fucking mess lol) just comment or note me u v u <33
Home life is still pretty awful; but I'm progressively getting back to doing art, and maybe streaming once school is calmed down a bit.

 Thank you for your patience

      -grote/kat
  this has been on my mind for a while, seeing as i'm no longer truly active in any art community. i'd like to see your thoughts and opinions.
so my home condition hasn't gotten any better, if anything its worse. uh, we had to put down one of my cats recently, and my school messed up my schedule and refused to fix it. currently im extremely stressed out, and if you haven't noticed, i have been on a very long, extended hiatus. sooner or later i will get back to drawing, but for now, i dont think that i'll be getting back into it. i've lost really all of my enthusiasm for art, and everything about my drawings make me unhappy. i'm thoroughly disappointed in my art and i feel like i can no longer continue drawing.

 thats basically it for now

Drawing and listening to music (possibly movie)
It'll be back on in a bit
