300k, Sketchbook, Social Media and general update!
So apparently it has been 8 years since I last posted a journal. Feels like a life time, even moreso on the internet. But since I just hit the 300k pageview mark I thought this
would be a good time to write a brief update. And first of all- thank you! To everybody who is still watching me and following my work, commenting or dropping by to say hello!
While overall activity on deviantArt seems to have gone down a lot and most people seem to have moved to facebook and instagram, I still check my messages here regularly, even if
I don't manage to get back to all of them.
That said, the above mentioned platforms have also become my main outlets

Hopefully though my recent submissions have proved that I am indeed alive. And I can tell you that it feels good to finally have some new pieces up. Since June last year I have been working as a full time concept artist, and that left me pretty much no time for personal stuff. But I am having a great time at the job and I have learned so much and have in fact painted more than ever before. Lately I just got too fed up with having only my rather old pieces up, hence why I made the time for new ones. And I'm definitely
So I thought it's time for a new journal! Not that I have a whole lot of meaningful stuff to say, but I thought I'd let you know that I'm still alive, haha! I have been fairly busy with uni assignments lately, lots of annoying writing and attempting to reach minimum word counts, it really is quite dull. And I am working on a commission as well. But I cannot really complain too much, I am doing well :D
And while I may not have had the time to really do a painting, I've been actively filling pages of my sketchbook with little thumbnail sketches, playing around with different ideas for sceneries and perspectives more, which is heaps of fun. Mos
