Hey there, I realize I've been neglecting this place, my last journal entry is about a year old, if not a little more, and lots have happened since.... though not much exciting.
I did give birth to a beautiful healthy boy (Okay, that is really exciting) called Santiago last February. Since then I have been caught up in a really huge whirlpool of sleepless nights (31 months and counting!!), crazy days mothering two small children, and no time for anything much. I am, literally, an emotional wreck, as my all too patient husband can attest.
I have done some art, however most of it I could not show yet. You did get a glimpse of my Christmas watercolors, which were a brief return to traditional and you can read about what prompted me to it here.
Other projects that have kept me busy were a tattoo design, which I am waiting for the client to get on her before I show it, and curiously some wedding stationery I did for a friend, and which, having received the invitation a few days ago I am ready to show any time soon. I actually enjoyed that project quite a bit, and I am thinking on doing some more, when time permits. Also, I completed a piece that had been on the works the whole year and I can't wait to upload! I really am proud of it and it is a very personal one.
But the one thing that I am most thrilled about is this large game project I am working on. I was contacted by an od client to undertake the largest thing I've ever done so far, and he did not take a no for an answer, no matter how much I explained he would probably be disappointed at my lack of time to do it. Being not impervious to the flattery that it is to have a client tell you that no matter how long it takes you he wants you, I yielded and now I am devoting my nights to research and sketch for that project. Whenever I am allowed I will be flooding you with a plethora of characters and environments (gasp! I've never done environments!!)
One of my objectives for this year is to regain the presence I abandoned in my art circles, Deviantart included, and I hope I can stick to it. In any case, I wanted to share my Facebook account with you, where you can follow my more personal life
and my "official" art page.
I hope you all had a great beginning of the year!!!
