It's that time of the year
So as I sit here, confronted by the realization that 2015 has come to its end, it makes me wonder and really look back in retrospect about what a crazy, hectic, but incredible year it has been. To be able to sit down, and realize where I was a year ago, and how far I’ve come.
I told myself at the start of 2015, that my motto would be to #brbchasingdreams. It was this silly, cheesy little idea to have a constant reminder to always, actively work towards my art. This little mantra would somehow eventually push me to break my boundaries, my comfort zones and my limits--to constantly challenge myself, dare mysel
It's strange to think that a year has gone by just like that. Only a year ago, I hosted this very same Christmas Giveaway, and looking forward a year, puts everything into perspective. I really enjoy hosting these, because you really get to see people "share the love", which is the theme after all. To everybody who participated, thank you so much! It was really great to read some of the comments and see some people get really into the festive spirit, so that was by far my favourite part to see :) Especially for me; I didn't quite enjoy my time here on DeviantArt until I started making friends, and actually being able to share my experience
Hi. I'd like to finally, properly introduce myself.
Below is a video that took me a long time to finally muster the courage finally share. I've been working on shaping this YouTube channel to be a creative space for me to share and talk art and share any resources (tips/tutorials) that might help other aspiring artists out there.
It's a video to introduce who I am, but more importantly, it's about where I am, what I'm doing and where I want to go.
So, up until two months ago, I was studying Physiotherapy at university, and I really did enjoy it. But my heart just wasn’t in it.
I never intended to study and pursue art, coming from a
Halloween just passed, and the general theme of halloween is the 'spooks', but more specifically, 'fear'. Halloween has always been something I've loved and wanted to get involved with (it's not very popular here down in Australia), except for one tiny aspect about the dark festivities... spiders.
I'm terrified of spiders. I have arachnophobia and it's crippling. The one thing I hate the most about deviantArt, is the fact that every time I go to the Macro>Photography section, I have to spend the next 10-30 minutes recollecting myself and calming my paranoia because I've just had the biggest scare and adrenaline rush after seeing a zoom-in
It's been soo long since my last journal entry, and heck, a lot has happened. I went through a bit of a dry spell in the last few months with my art because university really picked up and got up all in my grills like 'nah, you ain't gon get no spare time'. But all is well again and I'm back on dA, with no intention of slowing down! WOOHOO!
One of the most exciting things though this past week, is that I finally got around to creating and opening my own art shop, and website as well. It took a while to finally get around to making and actually launching it, but it was so worth it and heck I'm so excited and proud to finally announce it here
