... not that I was ever actually away. I've been here lurking below the surface and just watching stuff. But now silence is over. I'm looking forward to see new artwork from people in dA and hoping to submit more of my own art here as well. I feel so energetic even though I have a bronchitis at the moment
I've been so close to quit art stuff. So close. It's been a weird three years. But eventually I've done some pretty good soul searching. Found out that I still have a lot of love for art and the world around me.
Oh! And I've gone back to traditional pen and paper!!! Yaaay! Surprised even myself. I bought this fantastic Faber-Castell 2mm le
