I've never written one of these before so i'll do my best to cut to the chase and let you know what's been happening and what's in line for the future.
So over the past year or two my goals and ambitions for the future have slowly been changing hence the lack of updates here and on my other social networks. The ins and outs of that change would take an entirely different journal update so perhaps we'll leave that for a different day. Today I want to focus on the future and what I have in mind.
First off, finding a sweet spot where I can do what I really love while providing cool content for you guys has been pretty tough. I think as artists we can get really caught up in 'doing what you love' despite everyone else. After all, it's 'your' art and it's unique because of you so I think it's easy to forget that other people are seeing your stuff.
So with creature design in mind, (which is what really floats my boat), I've decided to start regularly posting content focused on the creature design of the real world, animals. Here's an overview of my plans for the near future -
Every week for the following couple months i'll be posting every week with new animals/creatures with little facts as to what they are and why they're awesome.
The creation of a new website to act as a central hub for all my content with in-depth blog posts, tutorials, merchandise and more.
A youtube channel!
Keeping up the unique personal work still with a series of 12 illustrations called 'Gods of the Zodiac'.
I'm writing this for you guys but i'm also writing this as a way to stay accountable to myself. We'll see how we're getting on in a couple of months but i'm looking forward to it. I hope I can provide some cool stuff for you
