Oh, man... where to start?
These past couple of months have been crazy for us. Early August Drew and I got married. It was an amazing day, and I can't thank the people in our lives enough. So much planning for just one day!!! We took a trip to Toronto for our honeymoon to bask in the joy that the Hockey Hall of Fame brings. We came back, and not 2 days later our cat Oliver (Drew's baby boy) stopped eating. We found out that he had a pretty advanced case of Leukemia. We tried everything we could, but we ultimately had to make the painful decision to let him go. Please check out what Drew wrote on our Instagram. It's really beautiful.
So while we were dealing with cat-son issues at home, things started changing drastically in our lives at work. I'm not going to go into details, because I don't want to accidentally get us in trouble (yeah, it's that bad), but after 10 years, Drew will be leaving his job. It's a blessing in disguise, believe me. And as for me, I started a new part time job. It's a retail gig, which I'm pretty sure I said that I was done with retail at some point, but I know it well, and I think this will be good.
What does that mean for Of Mice and Madness? The best of things, I believe! Drew is going to start streaming on Twitch now too!! I haven't been able to stream lately because I've had a mountain of contracted art work to finish that I can't make public before my employer. That work is almost done, so I will start streaming again soon. We'll have to make a new schedule, but it will be much more extensive. We're also going to start streaming video games as well as live art. It's going to be a lot of fun to do this with him, because I think our banter is awesome. If I had to give us a cheesy 70's duo name, it would be Bonkers and the Straight Man... wait... what?
At any rate, change is in the air. It's terrifying, but I think it is so necessary. We're jumping into it with open minds, open hearts, and a new found excitement. We're sorry for the dead air, but not too sorry, because we were busy morphing. Commissions work will soon resume, and so will the streaming. Please join us on our journey. Much love to all you guys.
