After the previous journal entry had graced my dA profile for like a year and a half, I figured it's about time for a new one. Hopefully though my recent submissions have proved that I am indeed alive. And I can tell you that it feels good to finally have some new pieces up. Since June last year I have been working as a full time concept artist, and that left me pretty much no time for personal stuff. But I am having a great time at the job and I have learned so much and have in fact painted more than ever before. Lately I just got too fed up with having only my rather old pieces up, hence why I made the time for new ones. And I'm definitely happy that you guys are enjoying them, that's great encouragement. There are a good many more pieces in the pipeline, but I don't know yet when I will find the time to finish them.

The next couple of weeks will be rather chaotic for me and I will probably not be online much, so please don't take offense if I am not replying immediately. I will still read every comment. But life sure isn't boring these days.

Hope all of you are doing well!
Dancakes :heart:

Glad to hear from you! Hope things are going awesome and not too stressful! I've been pretty busy lately too, and otherwise working up an art storm! I have 8 large acrylics in the works at the same time. I miss talking to you, Dancakies! :glomp:

That journal was from a year ago :lol: But yeah, things are running okayish. I'm always keeping busy though, that's certainly no problem. I probably have a dozen started pieces that I should get back to and finish when I find the time :D
Will you show these acrylics up here, when you're done? =] Large scale certainly sounds fun :D Are they a series or does each stand by itself?

And hey, I'm here all the time :p

I thought I was bad at journal writing!
Glad to hear you're doing well Dan, and your new job sounds fantastic. Hope everything else is going well for you too :).

Oh no, no worries. You are bad at replying to notes and coming on skype :giggle: Yer hiding all the time! :shakefist:
Hehe but yeah, I really can't complain much, I'm doing well and enjoying life :aww: How about you though? Haven't heard from you in aaaaaages! How's everything? What have you been up to? =]

Well maybe if you sent me a note I might reply!
I'm glad you're doing well! I've just finished my third year at uni, it's gone so fast I can't believe it. So I'm just enjoying the summer holidays, and I go back for my last year in September. It's a bit weird having nothing to do after spending every day for the last few months revising. I think I need to make some plans otherwise I'm going to get so bored, haha.
Do you have any summer holidays?
