It's been a while since I wrote a journal, hasn't it? Since my graduation two months ago, I haven't been very active here apart from the odd status update, but hopefully that will change soon!
Now I'm finished with school and back from my vacation, I can put all my energy in getting illustration jobs! I did art school to earn a living from my art, after all! And keeping up with social media is a part of that too, so let's try to be more active here! :eager:
Two weeks ago I shared a stand at the Netherlands' largest comic convention, Dutch Comic Con. It went pretty good, actually! I shared my table with my friend Tosca and we've made enough
... on my recent works! I'm totally doing this for the #showyourheart badge I get if I complete all the daily prompts, but hey, is that a bad thing? You all deserve a good hug for supporting me, so these prompts are a perfect excuse to do another feature!
And I totally wanted to include princeofallsofas (https://www.deviantart.com/princeofallsofas) too, but you don't have any deviations. :o
Happy new year everyone! :la:
In keeping up with the tradition, a list of memorable things happening last year!

:bulletgreen: 2018 was also the year I started seriously trying to sell prints and merchandise. I did my first two conventions, and both were extremely fun! I already have plans to attend the largest Dutch convention in March, excited how that'll turn out!
:bulletgreen: Back to living on my own! I became good friends with the girl that lived i

The problem is that writing journals like these take time, time I rather use to actually work on the project. :/
Luckily, I found a way to deal with this!
Normally fourth year students start on their graduation project in February and finish around the end of June. Then there is a degree show in the first week of July and the school closes for the summer. I decided last year I didn't want to graduate yet and do an internship instead
On 28 October 1918 Czechoslovakia declared independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, today exactly 100 years ago. And it also happens to be my birthday! Thanks everyone for the nice wishes! :hug:
A birthday I spend mostly working like a dog, though. >< I work in a self-service restaurant and due autumn break and the bad weather it was super busy.. Glad that is over!
You probably have noticed that I haven't been online much to answer comments or talk at all, I put all my free time in my audition comic for CenturyARkStorm-OCT (https://www.deviantart.com/centuryarkstorm-oct), as the deadline is November 1st. Actually I don't have to make that deadline as I'm joining as a spec
