Haven't written one of these in ages. Since I give little status updates every week beneath the comic pages I kind of neglect writing anything here.
2015 in most senses was a pretty cool year. I started my comic Soul's Journey and it broke loose of it's previous versions. I got to know quite a number of cool people through it, too. If nothing else, I'm certain all the work was worth it for that alone. The comic (and maybe soon comics) will certainly stay a priority in my life, next to my studies and day job. 2016 will be the year in which I (hopefully) graduate from uni. Still a lot of work ahead, but I kind of look forward to it.
Also early this year I signed up for the Storyteller's Summit
(formerly known as "OALive") and learnt a lot about storytelling in general and met a bunch of people. Now with all these people I regularly meet online I kind of need to translate that into meeting people in real life for 2016. We'll see how that turns out.
I also have a new best friend now, by which I indeed mean my cat. Dunno if I'm his best friend, too, but at least I'm his favourite food provider! He's a joy to have around and certainly still has his own head about the timing of food, play, cuddling and sleeping, but his large cute eyes justify anything anyway
Then I've also been to a number of good movies this year. Ant-Man, The Martian, In The Heart Of The Sea, Star Wars... Now that I know a bit more about the art and skill of storytelling I enjoy movies a lot more (or maybe dislike them a lot more, depends).
I haven't really made resolutions for 2016, but there are a few things I want to try:
- keeping up with regular updates for Soul's Journey
- possibly getting Recentia
off the ground
- being more social
- taking art classes at schoolism
(picked out a programme already
- try making more illustrations additionally to making pages
- convince more people to support me on Patreon
