Pretty good year
Hi guys, happy New Year, Christmas and all the other holidays that were or will follow soon. In case you haven't noticed, there's a neat card at my sketchblog.
I managed to fulfill my long-time wish right before the end of year, and paint something on canvas: Selfsustaining heart. More minimalist than my usual stuff, and it was much fun to paint.
The past year has been by far the best in my "career" so far — let's see...
- had 4 group art shows, one in the USA, and 3 local on SF conventions
- received the award Sfera for best SF art in the year 2006, which I vote the coolest thing in the past year. plus a few more awards at other conventions.
- met some people in the book publishing business and got my work to appear on book covers.
- continued with my web design work, and started a business of my own with a couple of friends (more on this on some other occasion)
- met many new creative and fun people, and started to collaborate with some of them
Nothing comes without a price, but I think that the good stuff outweighed the bad, and I'm very content.
I hope you had a pretty good year yourselves.
