You are AMAZING.I've seen a LOT of my younger / less experienced artist buddies posting journals, asking people if they like them or their art.

He pushed his square-lensed glasses up the bridge of his nose with a fingertip as he walked purposefully down the aisle in long, quick steps. He made his way up a short flight of stairs which led to a desk and a high-backed chair which were surrounded by monitors of all sizes. The man cleared his throat and spoke with
