I'm happy to have been here for this long.
It doesn't feel that long - but in a few more years I'll have been on this site for half my life. Sheesh!
I've improved so much having an audience to show work to, even if the point of the work wasn't an audience - just having a platform from which I could do anything at all has been really amazing for me over the years.
And then... PMD-e... which has been a really tremendous learning experience for me (and others!), in so many ways. I don't want to turn this journal sappy or anything, but I've been lucky to have met so many people and have gotten the chance to help create a community with its ups and downs.
And... speaking of such...
I'll be making a journal later about the state of PMD-e right now - I know the updates have been sporadic, and this has been for a few reasons. I've been thinking about how to word things for a few days now, and I don't think I've quite gotten it yet.
Anyway, for those of you who've been around since the beginning - thank you. And for those of you who maybe even only discovered my account in the past few days, thank you too! I hope you all can continue to enjoy my artwork for as long as I can make it engaging.
I have some new projects I want to discuss soon, but for now, if you're feeling a little down about your artwork, why not go to the very last page of my gallery? The one where I uploaded artwork 10 years ago? You can see that time, practice, and experience are what truly breed skill, which is why I strive to never purge my gallery of the old and embarrassing artwork.
Thank you, everyone!
