2017 a year of Foundation. 2018 a year of Creative.

UPDATE: new Illustrations in the Sketchy-doodles page.

 

2017 was a big year for me, i got married, Traveled to Japan and Boston, Started learning Guitar, Japanese and Leather Crafting, Built this portfolio, new friendships and a vertical garden to try my hand at growing my own food. Altho its has had its down times and the world seems like its going to shit, my little corner of the world has overall been going well, i feel like i have been laying the foundation for a lot of positivity and growth for myself personally and professionally.

I am not really big on making New Years resolutions, but believe its always good to have a point to reflect on to appreciate how far you have come and make plans for where you want to go, i think now more than ever i have a clearer idea of where i want to be, so i have decided to make my 2018 a year of Creative, i want to get into illustration in a big way, i already have plans to sign up for some illustration short courses, set up my painting gear and created a monthly Drawing Challenge with people i work with at Virgin Pulse who also enjoy illustration (i will make a post about this challenge in the new year).

So here's to the possibilities, the grit and the determination to see things through.
