Photography | Traditional Art | Digital Art

I am a self-taught artist based in Sydney, NSW, Australia; and a digital arts student.

Photography: I am mostly an urban/street photographer. I document all my travel experiences and put them together in city albums.

Traditional art: Coloured pencil portraits, graphite sketches, fantasy marker illustrations.

Digital art: Portraits and fantasy scenes, concept art.


Most of my artwork hasn't made to it deviantart yet. Unfortunately because of the issue with Mavericks/Photoshop/Wacom I haven't been able to work on any digital art since the introduction of Mac OS X Mavericks.

For any art/work related questions you can contact me either by:
~ sending me a note on deviantART --> livholland or livhollandcrafts
~ sending an e-mail to livhollandart(at)icloud.com

My jewellery and crafts account ---> :iconlivhollandcrafts:

Current projects:

web design portfolio
Sydney photo trip
abandoned and forgotten places - factories

EDIT: It seems my journal entry caused quite a bit of trouble. Thank you to everyone who was worried and reached out to me, it means a lot to me to have your support. 
Unfortunately I have had some negative and mean responses (always through private msgs oddly enough). 
My situation is still quite difficult, some things got better, some things are worse than before.
I am fighting some serious health issues at the moment unfortunately without private health insurance it is very hard to find help. One of the saddest things for me personally, looking back, was realising that I can't bring myself to draw. Once my greatest passion, now it seems somewhat impossible to even start a simple sketch. It's not even that I lack the ideas, that had hardly ever been the case. I just think I lost the will to do it, the things I loved seem foreign and distant now. I am under a lot of pressure to come back to school yet I can't imagine myself drawing, finishing the assignments. 

Another thing that I'd like to mention... words can hurt. Quite a lot of people around me seem to think that it's okay to say the most cruel things if only a few days later they add: "Oh I didn't really mean it". 
It doesn't make it okay. It doesn't make me forget. I might never forget. There are some things you simply do not say, meaning or not. There are things I wouldn't say to anyone not even the worst enemy. Unfortunately not many people seem to see it this way. So many people say the cruelest things to the ones they supposedly love. 

It makes me sad. Whether the cruel words are meant for me or not. It makes me sad.
