Hey everybody,

For those who still follow me and might read this journal update, I have some news.
As you might have noticed, I've been gone from dA and other art communities for quite a while now.
I even haven't made any photomanipulations in months! But I'm pretty sure you did notice that for yourself already.

So, what's the deal with you not making any art anymore??
Why did you vanish from all the other art communities??

Some of you might think I became addicted to a game or something..
Or became dad of a unexpected child and therefor have to work my ass off to provide a good growing environment..
But no, that's not case (god bless ^) :lol:

What I've been doing is simple!
Last year I started with a pre-study at the art academy on every saturday and during the week the only thing I did was working or making my homework. And the reason why I worked so much beside school was because I wanted to get my motorcycle license and buy a motorcycle! That's what I did and now I'm the proud owner of a Suzuki GSF 600 Bandit S! :D :dummy:
Because those two things simply burned all my energy, I wasn't in the mood to do some photomanipulations aswell.
A nice fact: It takes around 10 to 15 hours for me to finish an EPIC manip! :paranoid: I'm arrogant!

So what you are saying is that you are coming back again!?
I don't know, in about a month a will start a 4 years full time study PRODUCT DESIGN at the art academy. I have no idea how much time I need to put into this study. The only thing I want to say is that I'm still alive and there might be a 50/50 chance I might come back.

Soooo,, that's all! :nod:
