WARNING EPIC JOURNAL
Life has been quite hectic and overwhelming! My arm is acting up due to the cold and my full time job has thrown a lot of challenges my way which...I am actually enjoying.
I've been drawing a lot of development work including background/landscape studies and building up the general world for the comic. Those of you who've been following me for a while will have heard dribs and drabs about what I've been doing but I've made the decision not to upload any pages until I have at least the first installment finished and polished.
I've also made the decision to return to animation. This is a scary decision. I haven't animated for a long time and it's going to take a while to return to it.
When I left college I was full of hope and aspirations which over time I was unable to reach. This wasn't from lack of drive or skill, but my goals had changed from what my younger self wanted. I wanted to get married, to have my own home and generally be able to be independent. So a full time job became my objective.
Now my life is settling, I've seen more of the world and have a lot of support. Part of that is from my family, my friends and work colleagues, but it has also came from you. To the people who read my journal, who visit my page when I'm not here, and leave comments which make me smile - thank you.
I'm moving forward and actually dreaming of a future. This is a far cry from the person I was this time last year and I'll admit it's been hard. I will apologise for the lack of uploads, but there hasn't been a moment where I haven't stopped thinking about drawing and actually stealing as much of my free time to do so.
A new dragon picture is ready to upload, so in the meantime please feel free to continue to send messages - I will answer
