Happy New Year!

This is my last post (though I might update it with more links if I start new social media pages.) I considered other things besides ending the blog such as changing the name so it would reflect the new work I’m doing, or even just posting my new work here even if most of it isn’t positive doodles anymore, but I’m proud of the work I did on positive doodles, and I’d like the project to remain up as it is for people who just want to enjoy the doodles.

Thank you so much for following this blog and sharing my doodles. My favorite part of doing this was getting to talk to amazing people. Also, sometimes people would share my doodles and tag their friends in them and say the kindest things to their friends while doing so, and I loved getting to see that. 

People here helped me when I needed it, and I’ll always be grateful for that, and I hope that I always remember to pay that kindness forward. I’ve had a lot of fun running this blog! But it’s made me realize how much I love art, and how much I want to improve at it, and I think I’ve improved as much as I could while doodling. It’s time for me to get out of my comfort zone and really make time to learn illustration and cartooning. 

I’ve started previewing my new stuff around last October, so if you’ve been enjoying the things I’ve posted since then (the elephant and mouse comics, the personal positive drawings featuring a mouse version of myself, and my series of reasons to make things), you should follow me on my other social media pages so you can keep up with those. If you want to contact me, my email is emmroy.art@gmail.com and you can find me on:
- instagram
- facebook
- twitter. 

Thank you for everything and may this year be everything you want it to be.

Panel 3: The mouse says “What if I’m not likable enough to make new friends?” The elephant says “Plenty of people will like you.” 
Panel 4: The elephant says “It’s okay to be scared and have doubts, but you can do this. It will be fine.”]

[3-panel comic.
Panel 1: I don’t want to face my feelings. I don’t want to deal with things. *drawing of a mouse in bed*
Panel 2: But if I don’t, things won’t get better. *drawing of a mouse wrapped in a blanket and holding a coffee mug*
Panel 3: So I’m doing what I need now to have better later, and I don’t love it, but I can do it. I’m strong enough, and it will be fine. *drawing of a mug, a book, paper, a pen, and a laptop on a table.*]

[Drawing of a seal making a snowman with a caption that says “Reason to make things (if you want) #12: Because if someone you loved wanted to make things, you would support them, and you deserve to treat yourself like someone you love.”]

I added a new reward tier on my patreon.

It’s 5$ and it gives you access to all the drawings from the other reward tiers and to a new series of drawings centered around the phrases “It will be okay.” and “I’m going to be okay.” If you need some reasons to believe that things might work out, these drawings are there for that.

[Drawing of flowers with a caption that says “It’s unfair to be told you’re using your illness as an excuse not to try when you try so hard all the time. I see you. I know how hard you work and how much you’ve survived. You have every reason to be proud of yourself.”]

[drawing of a mouse sitting on a pile of books and holding a cup of coffee with a caption that says “I’ll be okay. ‘But what about…?’ I’ll be okay despite that. “But what about…?” Despite that too. “But what if…?” I’ll find a way. It will be okay.”]

[Drawing of a mouse walking on snow with a caption that says “I’m always trying to figure out a million things at once, but there is so much time to find answers. I don’t have to figure it all out today. I don’t have to figure it all out this year. I don’t have to figure it all out by a certain age. I have my entire life to learn and to grow.”]
