Firstly, thank you all so very much for the lovely birthday wishes! I was really touched and you made my day even better Super-BIG-thank you and I wish you all the best as well!
It's been over a year and a half since I last wrote a journal (not shitting you), actually more, since that last journal was about a livestream. I'm thinking it's high time to dust this front page off a bit with a shiny new journal!
So where the heck have I been and what have I done all this time? Well I was doing freelance work for a while after taking my hiatus. That kept me busy for half a year, and got me some great experience with working professionally as an artist. Then during the summer of 2013, I pretty much out of nowhere got the opportunity to do an interview for Atomhawk. They were looking to fill the position of Concept Artist, and since it had pretty much been my dream to work for them for years, I went for it. I had the greatest shock of my life when I actually got the position!
After that I had to quickly pack my stuff and move to England, to a tiny town called Newcastle, so I could actually work in the studio. And from then on life's been a whole bunch of good! One and a half years of working in a studio has done more good for my art and work experience than I ever thought. I'm having sooo much fun! Working in different styles and super cool projects - Pottermore being the favorite and only one I can mention right now - and being surrounded by super skilled artists all day that I can talk about art with anytime. Yeah you can probably tell art is my biggest passion haha.
Of course, working full time means I have little time over for personal art, which is the reason why I'm barely uploading anything anymore. However, I've finally gotten used to the new life in England and I've been painting more and more on my own stuff I'm hoping to start sharing my art online again very soon and get back in touch with people.
Anyways, just wanted to share the going-ons and whatnot and letting you know that I still live!
Also I just wanted to thank you all for your messages during this busy time. I'm sorry i haven't been able to answer you all, but I hope you know that the support means a lot to me!
