Hello everyone.I disappear for very longtime,just would like to update some journal about my life currently and I would like to note what's going on with my life here.
I rarely drawing much lately.I'm sorry for that if you +devwatch me for image.I lack inspiration to drawing with major artblock althought I set my resolution in this years to drawing more but it's seem like I didn't draw for several month,because I already discover my new passion.It's 'teaching' and 'entrepreneurship'.So I focus on that and that's reason,and now I'm stable in my little thing already like I said in various journal pass time.Actually I spend around 3 years to reach stable state.Now I've got income quite equal to fulltime job each month but I've no boss.

THE NEXT THREE YEARS OF MY LIFE
I had received a job offer at Microsoft. I guess this could have been one of my first 'big time' jobs, so I was a little ecstatic. It felt like a slow build to get to this point, after numerous indie games and under the table freelance jobs, but finally it had come.
I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I
How to get more exposure for your art.I was recently asked for some advice on getting exposure as an artist. Here's my own advice with personal reasons as to why I suggest them. This is not a post for 'bragging', if you take it that way, then please stop reading *i mean this in the nicest way orz* This is stating facts from my experience. What worked for me and what doesn't work. It shows how my own art has gained exposure throughout the years and how yours can too. I am not a fantastic artist, I know what I'm good at and what I struggle with. I work hard for what I know I can push out and I do it proudly. I hope this post will help you earn more followers and give you a bit of inspiration as well.

Un roti de Cupidon"Patron.. je suis pas sûr que ça soit une si bonne idée..."
Un bruissement d'ailes presque froufroutant sur sa gauche le fit se retourner d'un bond, mais il ne put percevoir qu'un bref mouvement du coin de l'oeil. Ils étaient rapides, bien trop rapides. Jamais le vieux ne réussirait. De nouveau ce bruit soyeux, semblable à des ailes de tourterelles, mais bien plus proche. Dans son esprit il pouvait les voir, tournant au dessus de sa tête comme autant de vautours prêts à la curée.
Le bruit assourdi des détonations résonna et tout autour d'Emmanuel une pluie de plumes commença à virevolter tandis que cinq bruits sourds accompagnaient la chute d'autant de corps autour de lui.
"Ramasse les, petit. On a encore du boulot."
Avec une grimace mi admirative, mi dégoûtée, le jeune homme se mit au travail, enfilant des lourds gants de cuir pour se protéger. Son sup
You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
