I think we have already established how bad I am at updating my deviantART journal, right? It's been over two years again!
If you're not following me elsewhere and have been wondering what I've been up to - well, I've been all right for starters! 2012 was a good year, art-wise, with three book covers and interior illustrations for an RPG adventure series.
In December 2012 I moved house, and had to put much work into turning it into a habitable space; it had been previously uninhabited and was in very bad shape. Between dealing with plumbing disasters, long hours at my day job, travelling (Saudi Arabia for work, Japan for holidays) I ended up painting almost nothing throughout 2013, and it was starting to bug me.
I made it a New Year resolution to paint more in 2014. So far I've stuck to it, and realise how much happier I am for it. Of course, on a day to day basis I'm mostly frustrated with my shortcomings as an artist, but I'm working on it. The greater picture is definitely better.
Social media updates:
You can now catch up with me on Instagram
, too. I post my works, but also photos of Athens (I walk around town a lot!) and from travels in Greece and abroad.
My main tumblr
account is strictly art-focused, but I have a personal one
, too. (Don't worry, I keep it sane, up to two posts a day maximum!)
Hope you've all been well!
