So, recently I've celebrated my 9th DA birthday. Nine years. Has it really been that long?

I created this account back in high school, shortly after I started drawing. Last April, I graduated from art school. It feels a bit bizarre to be honest. I haven't been that active here for the years I've been in art school especially, and during that time I haven't been at all active with art in general either. Ironic, isn't it?

I guess I just want this to be a celebration as well as a reminder for me and for all of you folks, young or old in age or drawing age - that no matter what, you'll be most of what you have in this journey. So be proud, even if not of your skill, but at the very least of your desire to be an artist and your desire to be a better artist. It's what has taken you places, to where you are now, and it's going to be the thing that takes you to more places, farther, better, more exciting. We all have battles to fight especially with our own insecure and judging selves so fight harder, and fight better. Don't forget to enjoy and love what you're doing. There is no where to go but up for those who know how to plant themselves in good ground.

I have been drawing more as of late, even if I don't post much here. All I do are sketches, mostly. It feels good to just really draw. So you can say that I've been doing it as a sort of self-therapy, to re-learn the joy of just drawing regardless of what people might say or think of your work. All in all it has been very liberating so far. I still draw in my own style, the only way I know, really. Because after all these years it is still home to me, no matter what art school thinks, no matter how art school has conditioned me to think. (If you're interested in seeing my pseudo-daily sketches, you can go to my sketch blog.)

The greats were great not because at birth they could paint; the greats were great because they paint a lot. It's that simple, so keep at it.

And of course, I wanted to thank you all for sharing this journey with me, especially for those who have been with me through all this time. It was nine years well-spent in this community, despite all the changes we've seen; I sincerely hope that your spirit of community and your willingness to watch over and support each other and share yourselves with other artists remain intact for the years to come. With me, hopefully.

Hello. I'm a professional visual designer, but I draw during my free time.
I am also a panda.

When my time comes around, lay me gently on the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl back to him

I'm a sucker for perfect tragic endings. Yes. Also, Inktober always comes late in my calendar. Better late than never as they say. (Who "they" are, I have no idea)
