I popped on to dA today and just noticed that my pageviews at some point in the last few days teetered over the edge of 200,000 which is pretty dang cool! It's immensely humbling to know that so many people have taken the time to stop by my page and (hopefully) got some joy out of looking at some art.
So truly and deeply, thanks for all your support! I know everyone talks about this stuff and it's sappy and cliche but it's true, if this community hadn't been here when I was first starting out I may have never recognized that art was something that could be pursued as a career, and your support over the years means more than you know. I'm definitely at an interesting point in my life and career right now, some things are changing, others are staying the same, but I'm excited for all of it and I'm working on some new stuff that's completely different from what I've done before that I can't wait to share.
So here's to improvement, and if you're in this boat too or just starting out don't ever give up on your dreams! Life's too short to spend doing anything other than what you love, and although sometimes it seems like it's too hard, taking one small step at a time will always result in progress, and the journey is the destination.
From 2007 to 2014, I<3U dA.
