Semi-Hiatus

Fri Feb 17, 2017, 7:10 AM


This is going to be some very heavy conversation. And very personal. So I will start out by saying that, if you can't find anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Please keep rude or angry comments to yourself.

I will be taking a semi-hiatus from art-making for the next few months. Which means to say that I'll be slowly working to wrap up outstanding commissions, but aside from that, I will not be making any new art or comics. I just feel... I feel exhausted right now, and deeply stressed, and the mere thought of having to work on art at the moment has been giving me panic attacks. Which, I can assure you, are not fun. I'm actually writing this from home today, having taken some time off from my day job to try to recover from two consecutive days of attacks.

Part of the reason I am so stressed is the reason why this journal is so personal. As a few of you already know, I am a transgender woman. I've been seeing a therapist over the last six months or so to try and work out what that means to me, exactly, and how I plan to proceed knowing that I am trans. I am currently in the process of coming out to my family, which has me completely scared to death, and I will likely - hopefully - be starting hormone therapy and looking for a place to have my facial hair removed over the next several months.

I tell you this not as an excuse, but as an explanation. My mind is literally so wound up in the process of coming out that I cannot focus on much of anything else. Believe me, I've tried. So until I'm on my way through the transition process that some of the stress starts to subside, I'm going to put art aside for the most part and focus my energy on making sure that I am well, and rested, and that my most immediate needs are taken care of.

If you have an outstanding commission and have any questions, please feel free to contact me by note, or by email at mukat@mukatkikaarn.com. If you have any questions about my transition - and please, be courteous and respectful and don't ask questions you wouldn't want someone to ask you - please feel free to ask them. I'll try my best to answer, or at the very least, I'll try to direct you towards resources that can explain better than I can.

Thank you for understanding, and hopefully, I will be back in full gear soon.

My name is Karie Senkow, aka Mukat, and I'm a cartoonist.

I am 30-something living in tiny apartment in a little big city in a parallelogram state that I wasn't born in but is certainly comfy enough.

I mainly draw sci-fi and fantasy comics and illustrations, most with something of an erotic bent. If you have absolutely no idea what this vore thing that I draw so much of is, I might suggest you check out DVArtists Vore Dictionary to find out what the heck we are so obsessed with. If you're curious as to what the heck I enjoy about it, drop me a note and ask; I love talking to people about it.

In fact, say hello for whatever reason; I'm shy in real life, and I find it easier to have a conversation online than I do face to face. But if you ever do want to see me sputter awkwardly, keep an ear out for any conventions I might have a table at!
