Hey guys,

Winter break is soon and I would like to report on how my first semester back at college has gone. I am pleased to report that my grades will hold and my attendance has been the best it has been in my entire college career. I have gotten a deeper sense of fulfillment from being in a major that I enjoy. Being treated and medicated has made a difference. Working less hours has made an impact. Showing up near every day has made the most.

I made a lot of personal sacrifices to see these changes through, and it has been paying off. I dealt with a bit of uncertainty going into this semester, but taking two years off proved to be the game changer. It gave me a new lease on my education and future.

This year was a year of changes. A significant change came when I moved out of my small studio apartment, into a bigger complex and larger work space. I expect to make across the board upgrades once again in 2017 in terms of hardware and will share more new art in more new mediums with you. 3D is a new medium I hope to explore and with programs like Sculptris and Blender it is entirely possible.

I am the type of person that prefers consistency. So, to stay in rhythm, I want to continue to remember what I am after. I am still improving my art skills, building on the basics, and breaking new ground. I want to spend more time in new mediums, and polish the skills that I already have. If I have a steady mindset, and keep up with the pace of things; taking it one day at a time, I expect to improve steadily and keep my grades up as well.

It seems that no matter how bad things have gotten, there has always been something that has put me back on the right path. Some things are made to happen for a reason, and it seems that in spite of all that has happened in these past two years, there is still hope.

As I look to 2017 I feel confident and hopeful because I know in my heart of hearts I am doing what I am meant to be doing and that my future as an artist is still viable.

Transitioning to the present, I must say I am awed and proud to have received 20,000 lifetime pageviews on this gallery. It is an accomplishment with great renown and I hope to be here for many thousands or millions more.

Thanks for all your support: from the first page view, to the first favorite to the twenty thousandth and beyond.

I'm a third year graphic design major at SCSU. I work a super part time job in retail and make nice arts on the side. I strive to always be learning my craft. I work with multiple mediums to create compelling works in various genres. I keep my art as free as possible because I like giving back to the deviantART community. My goal is to become an accomplished and successful artist. I try to make art that expresses how I feel about life and what I believe in. I am working hard to be the best I can be.
