I'm so glad the holidays are over! Things can finally go back to their normal blissfully boring self. And eventhough it's obviously a load of crap, I'm very excited about the fresh start that is this new year. 2012 was a good year though. I learned so so much. And it just flew by, I can't believe it's januari already. My head is still stuck somewhere in september.
And now it's suddenly 2013 and I have so many hopes and plans! Work hard. Read more. Learn more. Be happy. I really hope I can finally find a place for my own, am taking a totally new approach on the commission thing, hope to land a few illustration jobs for nature magazines, maybe find a paid job in animal care (and I might even go back to school?), get my drivers licence, get my shop really up and running, take this blog a little more seriously, and figure out what I réálly want to do with my life. Do I really want to be an illustrator forever? Live with all of the insecurities that come with it? My volunteer work at the animal shelter changed everything, I love working there more than anything which makes me wonder maybe I should put this whole drawing thing on the back burner and work with animals full time. Or not. Anyway, things are going to change and eventhough I'm really scared, I can not wait.
Thank you all so much for all the lovely comments and orders and support and everything. You guys really are the most wonderful people ever. I hope 2013 will be great for all of you!
