My new began, nothing much there to say about that. Personal life stays personal and therefore mystery to you. If you value your privacy you understand. I made no promises and plans for next year are somewhat about upgrading hardware. Maybe travel later on. For sure some Annual events are must go; craft fair and anime/manga convention.
As for art.... tricks stay same, they'll only get better... hopefully. x')
As for requests. I got badly sidetracked and forgot about some requests I took in. Then again I must amaze people who asked them for not even asking not a single time how their request are doing. O.o I'm that kind of a person who really does forget things so a reminder now and then would help.
