About time for my annual journal update..! orz

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 14, 2014, 7:54 AM
Hope everyone's been keeping well!

I realise over the years I've gotten increasingly shite at managing my DA 'routine'. Quite frankly I find myself balacing my time with my client work, teaching endeavour(which is turning out to be a really fulfilling new chapter in life) and working on side projects that I actually find it increasingly difficult to sit down and respond to comments here like I used to. Its always been a thing of mine to respond as much as possible and I still aspire to do so when I can, but I guess I'm in a pretty frantic pace of life at the moment. And I hope that my lack of replies do not come off as apathy or worse. I enjoy reading all the comments and critique and am thankful for your time in letting me know how you feel about the work in general. Especially for my work on hardcore IP like 40K... the level of 'fangasm' as I call it never ceases to blow my mind time and again. You guys always light that fire under my ass and I hope in my own way I never let you down.

As such, I hope that its a bit more obvious that when it comes to posting work I've done, I've always put more emphasis into the description section-- elaborating on my thoughts and process to share as much of my personal experience in art as possible for those of you who are more keen to know. To my mind, its the best I can do to make up for not being able to respond personally to your often colourful commentary. :p

I'm very thankful for all the support over the past decade here on DA(wow has it been that long... u_u), so much wouldn't have happened without it, and I can't wait to share the stuff I've been working on the side in greater detail, soon enough. :)

Have a great weekend!

While part of me is immensely elated to read that your career is progressing well. Oddly enough only a tiny part of me is disappointed that it prevents you from sharing artwork with us here. Keep up the great work. Share when you've the time and availability.

Well, thanks for posting art! It really is inspiring, even if your level of excellence seems unattainable. Still, you teach, huh? Really cool, I hope that's going well for you. Good luck!

love your work, the teaching thing is a great honour, been teaching and coaching for 15 years now, adds to personal growth in a way i never thought possible.

keep at it please, love your art.

Thank you for the kind words! Yes, teaching and sharing, its really something else, isn't it! It makes me for one constantly re-evaluate my biases and perceptions and keeps me on my toes, or so I'd like to think! :p
