A hoy hoy! I hadn't realised it had been just shy of a year since I last wrote a journal... My bad!
I started to create more but then 6 months a go my Nan was really poorly; worrying about her/working meant I didn't really feel motivated to do any art. Sadly in April we lost her; it's the first time I've lost someone so close and fully experienced how shit it is. I realise this is very negative and I wouldn't have mentioned it, but the reason I did was because within the month since losing her, I've created more art than I have in the last... Probably 6 months/year. So despite going through a shitty time, that's some sort of silver lining right?
If you still follow/have interest in my work you're probably wondering where this art is. I haven't really been uploading anything here; the project I'm currently working on I do intend to upload here when it's finished, however if you do want to check that out I've been posting them on my Facebook
I finally had my graduation in January; it was horrible but a good horrible. I wasn't expecting so many people, I felt like a tit in my cap and gown, my photo is horrible but I didn't fall over! :'D
Nah it was a great day, terrifying but great! I just feel like in the year since I left, I haven't achieved much but I am genuinely hoping that will change.
I still have the same job as I did before, it's shit, I won't sugar-coat it; people often tell me just to get another job but I like the flexibility of where I am... Meh. I have been snooping for others within art/illustration and it's difficult, but I'm hoping if I'm creating more then I'll have more confidence in applying for things.
Erm... I go on holiday next week, I am going to Turkey with some friends. The only thing I'm concerned about is the plane as I've never flown before :'D
Anyway, I hope any active followers are doing ok, and have had a better year than I have! Hopefully I won't leave my journal so for long next time!
