Personal Quote: Resolve is something to be made with more than one's mind.
Hey everyone. I know I haven't been very active in DA lately. I'm gong to make a continuous effort to change that. I've challenged myself to have some kind of activity in DA every week, whether its a journal entry or actual artwork.

Time to catch up on what I've been doing that has kept me so busy. First of all I have about 10 Secret Projects that I can't tell you about yet, yes I know that is horrible of me, but good things come to those that wait.

What I can tell you is that I'm making some progress on Publishing 2 Books. 1 and Ebook about Design and Branding Success, and the other is a Fictional Novel that won't be ready to next year, its been a project I've been working on under the radar for a few years now and is finally coming together. Tafford will likely be the publisher for the Novel and I will be publishing the Ebook myself, probably via EJunkie.

Soon I will be updating Deviant Art with work I did while I was working for the Ad Agency in New York. There is some great work in my portfolio on my site including the cover art I did for the re-release of 3 Stephen Hawking books for Random House. So feel free to check that out on until I get it all posted here.

As for my blog I will be updating that more frequently, as well as producing more content for a few other blogs including so look forward to that. I will probably be focusing a lot of my blogs are starting your Design career, as well as tips for improvement and of course features on other artist whose work I want to showcase.

I will also be fielding questions and portfolio critique from any art or design students that want it, so feel free to contact me if you're interested in some free advice from someone who does this for a living.

That's it for now. If you don't see any activity from me by this time next week be sure to call me out on it.

Hey Roberto!!

I knew you were on DeviantArt, I'm glad I found your profile again. I had let mine slip a little but i've updated it fully now with a whole new look :)

I'm also getting a hold of Adobe CS6 too after watching your videos about it.
