As it happened before, I've been waiting for some excuse to write another journal entry, and this time I'd like to celebrate reaching the 1002 watchers!!!
Now, what I'd really like to celebrate lies somewhere else though,... as I've mentioned in my previous journal (and also implied in this entry's title), it really isn't about the stats, but what they imply.
In the first place, they mean that, in one way or another, you guys are enjoying my work... and that's my primary reward.
I've always been in love with fantasy (in broad sense of the term), and at the same time, with the "ability for fantasy".
Of all things human, in my opinion, this is among the ones we should truly be grateful: the ability to go beyond, to live not only in this world, but to create others; to travel and explore by the means of the mind.
To be able to dream
I can't explain this better, I simply don't have the words, but whenever I use this "ability" to shape my fantasies, something in the process feels otherworldly, like magic; and it feels right, it feels good. And then, when I share what I have done, and I see that people like it, even if it is just one person, I know that "magic" is happening again: the things we create, they don't simply stand in the room like furniture, they change the landscape, they open a door where a wall was before, they trace a path, they ask a question; and at the same time, they do not remain quiet, they are moving force: every dream we share it's the fuel to another's dreaming.
So, like I said, I really can't explain but I can say it feels good and
Secondly, it's the support, of course.
There's anything to explain here; just say, as I have in other occasions, that it really means a lot. Going back to my previous idea, a dream only has meaning if you can share it with others. So thanks everyone for every message, comment, fave, watch, whatever,...
Thank you for being there.
Now, I don't really have more to add, but since we are here (and in case you haven't already), I'll take this opportunity to invite to look at some of the works in my gallery:
In the first place:
I did this two for Tymor, a strategy board game set in fantasy world, developed by Rex G. Baker IV.
I've recently learnt they've started a new kickstarter campaign to fund the final stage of the production, so if you like strategy games,
I would totally recommend you to go and take a look at its page to learn more about it and if you like it, support this awesome project!www.kickstarter.com/projects/m…
And last but not least:
Yes! These two belong to Burning Suns! Another strategy board game, developed by Emil Larsen, and set in vast sci-fi universe.
As some of you should probably know, I've been a part of the illustration team for a while now so, when I say it's a vast universe, it's not a mere courtesy.
But don't take my word for it, you should go and check their website:www.suntzugames.com/burning-su…
Finally, more number-related stuff: recently, I noticed a small increase on my pageviews, and I've been wondering why... usually this only happens when I submit some work, but this time, well, I haven't.
So, I'd like to ask you people, specially those who found my gallery recently, how did you get here. Essentially, I'd like to know this because, if someone has recently share my work somewhere, I would like to thank him/her.
Anyway, it's just a silly curiosity.
See you around!!!
