Interests
First of all I'd like to wish each and every one of you a very merry Christmas and the happiest of New Years.

But now, due to my health, I'm gonna have to call it quits for a while. I've recently been diagnosed with chateracts, and combined with the damage caused by the stroke, my vision has got so bad that I can no longer handle working on the art. After a couple of minutes my ability to focus leaves me and severe vertigo sets it.

I can get the cateracts removed some time in the next couple of years and then I should be able to start working again. But for now I'm gonna have to find something else to do.

My thanks for all the support and encouragement you have all given me since I joined the Deviant family, and I'm gonna miss you all.

I WILL be back .... Eventually. But for now I've gotto accept my physical limitations and say a fond farewell to all you good people.

Live long and love lots.
Be happy, my friends.

Hi Paul,
I have read your words of farewell and now I have tears in my eyes.
Life is not always easy, it is not always fair, but I hope that you're doing better.

All the best unknown friend
