Art wise: Just like trying new things all the time. Still developing style after all these years. I think my style leads more towards atmospheric mood setting and dark settings.

I love horror movies and books.

I'm too busy to even make my own website right now (for the past however many years)

First of all, same old excuse; I've been really hectically busy. That's why I haven't done much art as I would like. It was quite a dramatic end to the year the past few months. I had so many projects on the go, still in the middle of putting together a couple of books, work started to pick up with new clients. However my partner ended up in a motorcycle accident, luckily only cleanly broke his leg (could have been so much worse) - but he's doing better, can finally walk almost on it now. There was a bit of a drama with lawyers and TAC, and then not two months after he's been discharged from hospital, I ended up in the same hospital with a collapsed lung and a pneumonia infection. Originally I was at the hospital anyway for a routine check up, I had been having sharp pains in my lung for a while, doctor thought it was probably just inflamed, that it was normal and gave me a slip to get a chest X-Ray afterwards. It wasn't until I was getting the X-ray the guy doing the x-ray was concerned with the results and said I should go down to Emergency and get it looked at there. I didn't even get to make it out of the door that day and the soon admitted me for 10 days, being discharged home with antibiotics for 12 days just before my birthday and over the Christmas break - which in itself was another drama. But that's enough of the end of this year.

I've been a member on here for 11 years now. Back 10 years ago was when I started getting into my art. So in light of the new year I've gone through and selected my favourite piece of each year since 2005. Pieces I'm most proud of. There may be double ups for some recent years, it's hard to pick. Partially 2011 was really a year of growth.
