I know, it's been a while. I was going through my blog yesterday to see if there was anything I wanted to save before I kill it for good, but it just started to feel like a bit of a waste. It was a big part of my life when I was writing it five years ago, and although looking back I seemed to do a lot of whining I also enjoyed having a forum for my illustrations. Now with some distance I almost read it like someone else's story and felt a bit sad because I would have wanted to see what it all would have evolved to, even if it had been just a pastime and not a means to support myself. It's not insignificant.
So in the present I'm not making my living as an illustrator or a designer, and haven't even maintained it as a hobby really. I draw occasionally, but rarely on purpose and rarely on paper that doesn't have notes or something on it. I think I should though, so I'm not killing the blog. Maybe you'll hear from me.
While waiting for the comeback here are some pieces I saved from my other illustration blog that I did kill (referred to as "new blog" in the previous post):
