My 2015 recap! I probably should’ve posted this sooner but I didn’t really get a chance to! My week off has been busier than I thought it would be. I helped a friend get his website up, which by the way is up! He’s launching next week! Check it out! I have such talented friends! I’m so excited to see what he’s been doing the last year. :3
Also, you’ll notice my website layout is different and my portfolio is gone! I’m currently in the midst of revamping! Hoping to get my work up soon!
Thought I’d slip in one 2015 update post before the new year! I haven’t been actively posting at all! Actually, this year has been really busy. Mainly with work. I find the more I work, the less in touch I am with my own work. I try my best to draw as much as I can when I come home. But I have to admit, it’s tough! I spend all day at work, putting together wireframes, documents and revising screen flows that by the time I get home, I’m too tired to really do anything.
Anyway, it’s been almost two years since my last post! I’ve posted a lot of doodles and art on a lot of different social media, but I feel like I’ve lost some focus. For 2016, I’m hoping to take it back to posting in one place. It’s really easy getting caught up on trying to gain followers and comparing yourself to other people. I know I have a long way to go before it’s anywhere good.
I’m really just taking a few personal breaks and really focus on feeling good about myself and my work. Hopefully I can revive this blog. I think I’m the only one that knows about so maybe I won’t feel as self conscious when I make posts.
Long time no blog! I really should try and update this more often. A lot has happened since I last posted! I didn’t really realize it until I decided to update today. My last post was back in June. During that time I had been struggling to get back to doing UI design at the company I was working at. But due to huge company changes, I was stuck doing photoshop production work, which was not what I was hired for. I was very unhappy and felt no one was listening, so I looked elsewhere for work. Not long after looking, I got hired at A Thinking Ape in Vancouver! I’m very happy and proud to be working there. I’m now working at a studio that allows me to grow as an artist and designer giving me the opportunity to direct and design a vision for their products. I’ve been learning a lot and hope to continue doing great work there. :D
Anyway, here’s a pencil drawing I did back in the summer. I started getting back into drawing with traditional media in the last year. I’m hoping to try getting back into painting and work on other areas of art I need practice with. It’s definitely been hard to with a full time job and I get demotivated easy because I lack the confidence. :’D But luckily, doing art makes me happy so it’s hard to stop. :3
I’ve started a webcomic as well! If you’re curious, have a look!
