It's that time again where everyone writes a contemplative journal about their year and personal experiences contained therein. Some people had a good one, other's a bad one, but I'm glad that I can honestly say this was the best year I've ever had.
Two of the biggest things to happen to me this year are things that'll shape the rest of my life. The first is that I both finally met and started dating one of my best friends, and it'll be no surprise to her when I decide the time is right to propose.
She's from Down Under, and I'm Stateside, but there's no lack of determination to make it work. I had the time of my life with her, and I know I'll continue to for years to come. You're the best, Clancy
The second thing is my work on the Hunger Games movie. I'm sure many of you already know I had a hand in the design on that movie, and I'm eternally grateful to `DanLuVisiArt
, his friend Stephan, and Stephan's lovely girlfriend for helping me get on board. It was a big step forward for me and I look forward to what 2012 holds.
I'm also grateful for all the new friends I've made and all the good times I've had with my best friends, especially `DanLuVisiArt
and my BFFL Ana. There's far too much stuff to list, but it was a brilliant year and I love everyone who had a hand in making it such, including you guys here on dA. Without your support, being an artist wouldn't be half as rewarding, so I thank you.
My resolution for this year is to be far more productive. It's too easy to get lax with personal work, especially with the existence of Netflix, so I'm going to make this a year where I put out a ton of new work and really push my limits. It's funny how often one can rediscover their love of art, and I'm going to make sure I really utilize that feeling this go around. I hope you guys enjoy the ride as much as I will.
Here's to an awesome 2011 and hopefully an even better 2012.
Happy New Year!
