Yes I'm back for a new journal entry... AND ANOTHER 2 YEARS since!
Thank you for adding my artworks to your faves and watch. I am seldom here but haven't fully left because my Ghibli club is still running (or not really as it is mostly on autopilot).
Instagram, my blog & Facebook is where I post my new stuff and communicate so if you'd like to follow me and vice versa, please check out the links below!
Currently I am focusing on releasing digital stamps and clip art in my shop so I don't have the luxury of time to fiddle with original art like in the past. I also run an online vintage shop and that takes up a bulk of my time.
If you'd like to contact me for commissions, please feel free to e-mail me. If you have a tight budget and just want something for personal use, let's see if we can work something out. It all depends on how long I take to do it.
Once again I gotta mention most of my former DA friends have moved on so it has been quiet. Everyone is getting older, starting families, busy with their careers, and of course this site is more skewed towards the teenage demographic and focused on anime so yeah we had to leave sooner or later for greener pastures and find matching audience for work or focus on another career altogether. Besides some drama back then - if you remember it - that led to some exodus of artists lol. So Instagram is it, since the general public, professionals, amateurs and everything in between keep the network engaging.
It has been over a decade and things should change but it seems to be going downhill here. Back then it was common to receive many insightful comments, do collabs, genuine interaction and forge friendships between artists who want to help each other out. Nowadays even the most popular ones get only a handful of comments, of which I'm not surprised if the majority of comments is a single word lol. Like a hit and run thing.
Anyhow if you're ever back here reading this, don't forget to say hi! As for those who are still submitting, keep up the good work!
Have a great 2016 and years ahead, and I'll see ya in 2018 for my next journal entry if I don't forget or am still around
