So yeah, this is a thing, and yay bandwagons!
This is gonna be interesting.
I guess I should start at the beginning, with this "Memes in Space" piece. This is the first piece of digital art I'd done that I was actually proud of, as well as the first piece of mine to get exhibited in a gallery. A redone version is probably in order, but There we go. Moving swiftly onwards!
We now jump about half a year ahead, to my visit to the Hockney exhibition, and this gemstone. At this point, the College year was almost over, and this is around the time I joined deviantART, and met some fantastic people, including
, who is fantastic and you should certainly check out
I also tried my hand at photography, leading to this
Only Slenderman wasn't actually there. (I may have added him before I uploaded it, and totally forgot about it until now
That summer was the first festival I ever went to, even if it was a local one, and it was awesome. I also got my first decent computer, which let me browse the internets even more, so deviantART activity went up even more!
As I recall, I also met the incredible
at the London Devmeet. And holy shit, that was two whole years ago
Anyway, onwards again!
These three all happened at about the same time, and all in Photoshop, just cementing my skills. I began my second year in College, and everything just kinda went as expected. I continued to doodle, and uploaded some of it here
Then around May last year, we went to exhibit digital art at Gadget Show Live 2013. For a whole week. That was a thing. And I slept on the floor all week because of a hotel mixup for all the rooms we booked. Posting got a little less frequent, but some good stuff was made
Skip forward again, and I've just got into Uni. I continue to use deviantART to post all the stuff inspired by my work there, but it's not a very digital place, and that was disappointing.
Then these guys happened, out of nowhere. What followed was an endless torrent of all the doodles I'd done, finished or not, in the hopes that they could prove a process to my madness (The yellow one is still on my business card!)
Then I started using Procreate. And since then I've been a little inactive. I quit uni, got and quit a couple of jobs, and now I'm moving to Brighton in October with my ladyfriend. I don't do as much art these days, but it'll come to me again, just like it always does.
If you're still here, then congrats, you put up with bullshit for some reason, and it's much appreciated. I'll continue to be here, even if I don't post, so note me if you need me, and stay arty funky people. Like it or not, deviantART has had a huge effect on me and the art I produce, and I'd be a much saner person without it
