Not dead, but busy

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 22, 2007, 1:46 PM
Just thought I should update, so you won't think I got kidnapped in Italy or something ;)

Forgive the lack of art updates. I am not slacking off, I swear. In fact, I am working like a mule. The fruits of my labour can be seen in ImagineFX Issues from Issue 15 to 24. ;)

I am not showing the pieces here as I am facing some sort of hyper self criticism period. I am really bored with my style as of late and am in great need to expand my horizons and experiment.
Soon, I will take a small break to get my inspiration back after which I will probably be back with some very different stuff than what you've got used to. :)

And yes yes I know I promised my website launch to be soon. I totally suck :S You see, the site (or well, the engine etc) has been actually done for a long while.  But of course I got bored with the layout meanwhile so I am trying to figure out something cooler. Please bare with me!:(

PS. An enormous kiss for my honey, who is most probably gonna read this sometime soon, when he gets back. *grumblemumble* Love you, M! :heart:

well, glad that you are alive, adn well, if you were kidnapped in Italy, I am sure you would be having a great time regardless. And well, everyone goes though those periods of introspection and everything, so I just can say you'll get through it. (Though why you think you need to be critical of your art escapes me... it's awesome work).

Have a welcome back e-:cookie: :D

pride and prejudice is a great book. there is a novel called "darcy's story" that is very interesting and tells the story from his point of view, since the original was from elizabeth's. of course, the author is no jane austin, but it was a fun read. :)

"The fruits of my labour can be seen in ImagineFX Issues from Issue 15 to 24." Every bit of it is being thoroughly appreciated, I assure you. Converting to digital work after 35 years of traditional graphics, is a bit of a bumpy (for me) learning experience. :D

Now, why doesn't it surprise me that you are an Austin fan? :)
