Hello awesome watchers! It's been the longest time since I've posted a journal even though I've been very active on DA. This has just been so busy and journals always take a while to write. Well, I hope you've all be doing well.

Well, like the title says there are exciting things happening this year for me: This will officially be the last year that I canvas the Comic cons to show my portfolio from table to table to artists and at portfolio review, there's only so many years you can do that before people wonder why you're not getting work. Fortunately the reason I won't be canvassing is not because I'm not getting work but because I am! and not just inking or drawing work either. The next time you see me at the con's I'll either have a table or be a full on punter there for the atmosphere and to socialise.

last year I set up :iconinkerschallenge: a group for inkers or all levels to learn and hone their skills using various challenges. This year the group finally kicked off but before the first challenge was even posted I got into talks with Bob Almond from the Inkwell Awards and we started talking about the group and affiliating it with Inkwell. After a couple of discussions we agreed Inkers Challenge would become the DA HQ of the Inkwell Awards and I was named as Inkwell's DA rep. It's really exciting news and will benefit the group greatly; I had great ambitions for the group and Inkwell will be able to help me realise them. If you haven't checked the group out, please do and join in the fun.

My other big news has been just over a year in the making: at last years Super Con I met who I consider to be the best colourist in the comic industry. She expressed her interest in commissioning me. A year later and we're going to be collaborating on a comic. A bit nervous about inking her work but I'm super stoked to be working with such a living legend and it's crazy that she's excited about working with me to - no pressure then! I'll announce more about the project once it's fully underway.

So those are the big news at the moment and I have an ace up my sleeve I can't show right now. I'm ever so grateful to God for everything, it's a bit surreal at times and I'm so grateful to everyone who's supported me and enjoyed my work - I hope I can keep inspiring you the way you inspire me.

Finally, (this is gonna be a long list!!!), a warm welcome to all my new watchers! I don't think I'll be able to keep up the tradition of mentioning you all in my journal but I'll keep going as long as I can :D So here's to:
