Today (or yesterday, depending on when and where do you read it) is/was birthday, so go on and say hello to her. And get some cake.
This Journal Title is brought to you by The Motion City Soundtrack, and Tim Burton Alice. A horrible movie for all it´s worth, but with a good soundtrack.
Allright. Every now and then I forget to do this Journal. The anual checkpoint! Last year I completely forgot about it, but let´s see how well I did in ywo years, shall we? I can´t believe I´ve been in dA for five full years. I´ve made so many good friends in all that time. And I´ve got so much better with all the feedback, and inspiration.
2012 entry, you know, that year the world ended
Aiight, so in two years I barely had 26 more watchers. Shees, that´s bad. It must be something about me not posting, I guess. It´s not my fault, I swear. I got so much work on me lately. Wich is awesome, I swear. I always said to myself that if life ever gave me the chance I´d hold to it with all my might. And it´s paying off! I´ve got one pic stolen, for who knows how long ... and even more important. Open this link. If you are going to ignore every single other link in this journal, check this one out My name appears in ComicVine. Somehow, for some weird reason I´ve yet to comprehend.. You know? I started drawing with comic books. If I had to mention one thing that changed my life, that would be comics. Of course, I always liked to draw, as any kid does. But comic books really kicked the love of it for me. I started studying graphic design after watching the work of Designer Dave McKean in Batman Arkham Asylum. And his love for Design inspired me to love my career as well (when he directed "Mirrormask" the credits read "Directed and Designed by Dave McKean" How fucking awesome is that?). So yeah, the fact that I got to be in a page dedicated to comics really make me feel warm and fuzzy inside... so yeah. There.
Back into the topic; I almost got 45K pageviews, and more impressive, I hitted the 100K deviation views! Go me! That´s a fucking big number. No matter how optimistic I was when I started dA, I never tought my scribbles where going to be watched One hundred thousand times! SHIT! If you write the words sounds so much more impressive!
My most faved pic is still my Cheshire cat, wich is almost on the 100 favs mark. Ok, not so good numbers after all, I guess. But I´ve grown to like that pic. Every good thing that happened to me was because of that one pic. Wich I swear, I gotta find the sketch of it. You wouldn´t believe it if you saw it. My most viewed pic is still my Strip poker pic, to surprise of friggin nobody. with over 5000 views. And well. that´s enough for this year´s count.
So thank you all, my dear dA friends! Five friggin long years, getting better, and happier, to be honest. Salutes, from me! And now, I´ll leave a flower on top of this journal and dissapear in the night, like a mysterious bandit gentleman!
And now, to make the journal complete, the hard numbers, copy pasted from the dA number thingie!
