:star: Back on Course

Hi guys and gals, it's been three and a half months since I got back from studying in the United States and now I'm finally back to my old job at Crown Perth. Life has been amazing - I've spent more quality time with family, did a whole bunch of cool stuff with friends, and played some survival horror games as of late (just finished 'The Evil Within' and I'm almost done with Dead Space 3 - both very fun to play).

I also had one of my artworks from the Academy of Art University successfully picked and exhibited by my local council on it's 12th annual Emerging Artists Award.
Out of the +500 entries this year 82 got picked and I'm pretty proud to have been one of the chosen. It was a privilege to check out the local talent and admire their finished artwork for presentation with my family. It will be exhibited for the public for about a week and artwork at this stage are available for purchase. 

Anyways I haven't been drawing alot lately and that's because I had focused on getting employed. I took it for granted that it was going to be easy to get myself a new job in my specialty area but I was naive and underestimated the job market in Australia at the time. Now that I've confirmed to have passed the group interview and commencing work on Monday it is quite a blessing. 

As the title suggests I'm back on course and I'm looking forward to this new life in Australia - and a very good one at that.

Hello Darkspeeds, I may not be that active here on DA but I do follow your work. ^^

I don't know if you're aware of Liris-san's artwork here on DA, but I thought you might be interested. She has created some incredible classic Sonic-themed art and fan comics.

Hi there Thwack-sandwich! 

Oh wow! The person your refereed to me is quite the artist! She's got a very elegant touch with her pencil work - colored and gray-scale. Her rendering is really nice - a lot of her fanart is inspired from SEGA IP's that I know of my childhood. ;)

Thanks for the find, and you shouldn't be too shabby about your stuff too, it's looking great! Keep up the wonderful illustration work!

Ah interesting. :) She's created some very nostalgic pieces, especially with the use of paint on canvas.

You're very welcome and many thanks for your kind comment! I appreciate it. :thanks:

I've always admired your skill and ambition. I'm sure you'll go far. :)
