A paper bag, perhaps?

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 13, 2008, 1:35 AM
Hey guys,

Every time I write a journal entry I start by apologizing to everyone and, uhm, this time won't be different.  Once again I wanted to say sorry for my absence and lack of response to notes/e-mails; due to a humongous amount of real-life obligations, I am finding myself bouncing between work and, uh, more work most of my time.

I am horrified noticing I have not published anything in here for nearly a year, yet 2008 has been among my most "artistically" busy times. I have not had any time to prepare a personal piece for over a year and a half, and have spent the past months doing commercial work. The proof I haven't been slacking is here:  you check out ImagineFX magazine for some video tutorials of mine www.imaginefx.com/022877543327… (issues 33-36)

Anyhow, the main reason why I made this post is to say that I finally started working (after a year or so?) on a personal piece which I actually intend on showing. :P I should manage to update this cobweb covered gallery within the next two weeks.
Meanwhile I would love to thank everyone for their continuous support and feedback. I truly appreciate every comment you leave, even if I do not manage to thank each of you personally. I miss you all a lot and hope to be back soon! :)

With hugs to all,

Marta

your a heroin of mine. Been keeping tabs on what you've been up to in imagineFX. - n like the narcotic, there is never enough of it.

so yeah, i'd be glad to see you do stuff you want to do for yourself... but, whatever is the case... to my mind you can do no wrong.

Fajnie, że wreszcie coś subbmitujesz! Masz świetny styl. Tak patrząc na Twoje rysunki nasuwa mi się pytanie... ty bierzesz zdjęcia ludzi i je "obrabiasz" czy sama rysujesz twarze i w ogóle wszystko?

There's no need to feel ashamed of anything. No one's immune to the set backs life can cause. Be proud of the things you can accomplish, and forgive yourself for the things you can't. I'm certain no one here thinks ill of you for your hiatus.

You speak with a kindness that seems to be lacking in most nowadays, and I'm certain all of your fans really like this about you. : ) We all wish you the best!

:blowkiss: I'm doing pretty well. Overworked because of school, but I'm slowly getting things done. And you've been developing your style quit beautifully yourself, lady! I don't think I've gushed about how much I loved your paintings in d'artiste, but I was impressed. :) (Not to mention the write-up itself. I've drastically improved upon my grass-painting techniques, hahaha!)

And thank you! :strip:

As you may be able to tell from the previous comments - We are all looking forward to your new updates!

I don't think in reality it matters how long between drawings it takes people to produce something they can show on sites like this. What does matter is that you haven't stopped or given up on people (your fans) and you continue to return and inspire us to keep creating!

Yay! It's so good to hear from you ^-^

I've been stalking you on CGSociety, Ballistic Publishing and other places so I kinda got the idea that you're working on stuff like mad. I've seen some of the work in the books and all, and it's amazing as usual!

I'm very happy to hear you will post something soon :D

Also I'm glad to hear all is good with you! Hope everything works out for you and keep up the creativity ^-^

Best wishes,
