My Bio
From Melbourne, Australia.
Studied Visual Arts, Illustration & Design, Web Design and PHP and Permaculture
Lived in Brasov, Romania for 2 months doing volunteer teaching.
Travelled California US.
Been exhibiting the past 9 years.
Worked in a gallery, currently working as a freelance in Graphic design and webdesign and development.
Started a partnership business recently.

Art wise: Just like trying new things all the time. Still developing style after all these years. I think my style leads more towards atmospheric mood setting and dark settings.

I love horror movies and books.
Been playing piano the past 10 years. I think I'm pretty damn good at it.

I'm too busy to even make my own website right now (for the past however many years)

Though it wasn't the title that grabbed my attention. It was the thumbnail they used. An illustration of the Babadook. An image I'm all too familiar with, right down to every single ink drop.

That was then when I felt disheartened. No credit to the artist. Though credit was given to the music used in the video. Just not the illustration used in the thumbnail. I did leave a comment saying they probably should give the artist a credit. But I have yet to hear back. It's not the first time it has happened and I have

Artstation

Anyone else use artstation? I've been thinking it might be time to make the switch over. It seems a lot better on a professional and opportunity level. I also like that they have classes over there. But it also seems pretty elite and I just don't have that much confidence in my work.
Anyone else having issues with DA's server image compression. Everything looks terrible now
