Hello everyone ! Been a while i have updated my journal & today is the perfect day to take the action.Why ? Look ! I got a premium membership :D

Well, 2010 is going great for me so far. Continuing with my job at a small-studio for my bread & butter, done 2 really enjoyable freelancing projects for personal satisfaction ! One, a logo for a charity + music website. Second, Branding + Web for a Media Production house. And other great thing, i got my Tablet ! So, expect some digital-paints soon.

This year, i started a Blog for a daily-design activity. Where i dedicate 20-45 mins of the day to create something everyday & share. And i surprised myself for not missing a single day till the date !
You can have a look at all entries here :

I have also shared selected entries from daily365 blog here on DA

"freakyframes has 25,089 pageviews total and his 93 deviations were viewed 170,785 times."

Just realized i crossed my 25K page-views today, big thanks to all the visitors and great people who added me. And i must say, deviant has been a great place to get inspired and stay motivated. Now, i have got my showcase accounts on so many sites and even a personal domain but DA has a very own charm and i love how you get to interact with users of such a different skill set and levels.

Thanks again ! :thanks:

And in other updates, :blahblah:

Apart from regular self-work and freelancing i have joined a new workplace called Studio Brahma in Delhi-India. And hoping that everything goes great. And with some pretty sharp turns in life in last 3 months.. .

I have started Loving
My iMac at studio.
Ambient + Electronica
Staring at random people and car's headlight on my 10min walk from studio to bus-stop.
Going to temple down in my society late night.
Sugarless coffee.


I have started hating !
Tall buildings, specially the ones with reflective glass all over the windows.
Headphones, listening to music alone is not a fun ! But have to do it here in studio.
AC on my head.
The public transport here.
My external HD, "shouts for disk-cleanup every-time i need it ! "
The local radio stations ... .

Ok, enough, should go back to work now. :sprint:
