Where did I go?

Yeah, in my face. Anyone remembering what I said at the beginning of this year? That I would do less freelance, and focus mor on personal projects? Yes?

Well, guess why I’ve been silent for the past months. Yup. I’ve been stuck with freelancing. Every time I think for myself: “Never again!” But chanches, are that I will end up there again. Swamped with tons of work. I never learn.

This is pretty much what my days has been like. Me crunching away in my corner of the bedroom, having deadlines breathing down my neck with a clingy Zimba on my shoulders. Been consuming lots of coffe, and have binged all my favorite TV shows in the background while painting.
I wrapped up the last gig maybe two weeks ago, and I still barely get that I actually have quality time for myself now! Wow. Now what?

Time to plan 2018

I want to revive my Youtube channel, stuff this blog with tons of new posts, spend as much time as possible on my personal projects(childrens books? Graphic novels? I got ideas for stories, but haven’t decided on which format yet..)

But first I’d like to make some recaps about things that has been going on lately. And write some goals for 2018. Trying to make them eh.. More realistic this time(having possible future freelance gigs in mind).

Something else that’s new – I’ve decided to start blogging in Swedish as well. Again. The reason for that is simply so comforting to write in your own language as well(well technically I’m Hungarian, but use Swedish the most since I live here). I have followers from all over the world, which is very humbling and awesome. It’s just that it would be fun to also discuss Digital Art and stuff with fellow Swedes. I know you’re out there, and are just like me. Who love animals and painting in Photoshop. Would be great to also join in on discussions about things happening in Sweden. Well, let’s see :)

Hope I manage to keep posting regularly from now on.


Thanks again, for sticking around.
