to a year gone by

Fri Jan 1, 2016, 9:48 AM by kelogsloops:iconkelogsloops:

It's that time of the year

So as I sit here, confronted by the realization that 2015 has come to its end, it makes me wonder and really look back in retrospect about what a crazy, hectic, but incredible year it has been. To be able to sit down, and realize where I was a year ago, and how far I’ve come. 

I told myself at the start of 2015, that my motto would be to #brbchasingdreams. It was this silly, cheesy little idea to have a constant reminder to always, actively work towards my art. This little mantra would somehow eventually push me to break my boundaries, my comfort zones and my limits--to constantly challenge myself, dare myself to improve and set goals beyond anything I could imagine. But never in my dreams would I have expected to have gotten to where I am now; 2015 to me was a year of many firsts, and of very important goodbyes’

    Who could have known that in a year from then, I'd be in my first exhibition.
    Or opened my own print shop and sold my first painting,
    Or started my own YouTube channel
    Or even dropped my course of study, and change the entire trajectory of my life towards chasing the dream in art
    Heck, who could have known that I'd have over 15,000 people watching me on DeviantArt, the community that I first began in and fell in love with. That in itself blows me away.

As I look back over it all, I know one thing for sure is that I've been happy throughout, because I love what I get to do. And the best bit? That there are people out there who love what I do. And for that, I can't put to words how thankful I am to each and every one of you who do. I can’t imagine how I’m meant to top a year like 2015 but all I know is that I’m excited to give it another crack. I started last year with this motivation and drive to give it my everything, and it still thrives today. So, LET'S DO THIS 2016!!!

Happy New Year everyone!

I... got a Daily Deviation?  :O (Eek) Freaking out a little bit here~~ aaaaah!

daily deviations

I grew up with deviantArt, and one thing I always remembered so distinctively those little indicators of the "daily deviation", whether it was the golden bar and the red love heart that it is now, or how those artworks would appear at the bottom of the website. Daily Deviations were reserved for the artists I considered gods/goddesses, talents in their own rights. Those works were creative masterpieces by geniuses of a different breed, the kind of artists that you look up to and just go 'wow, I wish I could be like that'.

So to find years later on that I'd receive one myself... how can you explain that feeling.

Hello! I've stumbled upon your videos on youtube and when I see that you have an account here, I thought, "I have to follow this person!" you're so talented and I hope that you keep making art! :) After watching a few of your videos, I feel more motivated to try painting once more.
