At the beginning of 2018 I hit a snag in my life. Loneliness was creeping, anxiety flared up, and I ended up staying in bed for days at a time. I love my job, but I couldn't sleep or find the motivation to get out of bed in the morning.
I tried tinkering with everything I could find at home, just to make the time pass when I one day found myself doodling with my old Wacom tablet.
I hadn't used it in a while, but I started drawing a Wizard robe and a beard over a picture of a squinting Pepe because he looked like a wizard to me. I don't know why.
I posted it in a discord that I'm frequenting and people got some good laughs out of it. It gave me a warm fuzzy feeling so I decided to do another.
And a couple more...
I was making people laugh, I was keeping myself busy, and most importantly, I made myself laugh... a lot.
As of writing this I've made roughly 150 custom emotes, 75% of them are Pepes. And whenever I see them used in discords (and even twitch!) throughout the internet, it makes my heart flutter.. Well, it's either that or I'm having a prolonged heart attack.
Money is optional, but highly appreciated as it is the ultimate form of gratification.
