Another Year Has Passed! (closed)

Hey Everyone!

I am back and it is...my second Blogoversary today! Hooray!! So yes. This means another giveaway. But first, I just wanted to start with a BIG thank you to all again for the lovely support you gave me on my previous post. I read every single comment when I was feeling down and your lovely words cheered me up quite a lot. I couldn't thank you enough. No need to worry, I'm doing okay ^_^.

Sneak peek at a larger painting I did for my friend Tony Berkman.
It's one of my faves. Fishies everywhere!

So the moment all of you have been waiting for (probably not, but okay haha). The winner of the previous giveaway is.............
Congratulations Hanis! I believe you choose an underwater theme. I shall contact you or if you read this and you haven't gotten an email yet, feel free to send an email.

Now! Let's go to the other giveaway ;)

If you want to join, just let me know in the comments below. Also, when I reach 100 likes on my page, there will be a giveaway as well. There are quite a few ways to obtain an original a la TJ! Fun stuff ahead :D.

This post won't be filled with updates or ramblings just yet. I need to reorganize a lot of stuff haha. Oh before I go! Have I showed you below illustration? I can't recall now. It was for a giveaway over at the Self Exams Doodles page! A little boy who loves pirates :D. He has it hanging proudly on his door now!

  21. @ Cesar:

    Hey Cesar, I checked your profile but you don't have a blog registered or an email. I really hope you'll read this though. Just wanted to say a thank you personally, because your comment really hit home. All I can say is that there will always be reasons not to start something for yourself. In the end it's best to just go for it :D. If it's what you want do to, it will knock on your door until you do something with it. Two years ago, I'd never though to be where I am now. I'm a perfectionist and I always want to add changes in my art. There is so much out there, that you can easily feel lost. But in the end there is an audience for every artist. So be true to yourself and have fun with everything you do. People will notice this and support you on your creative journey. I'm looking forward to hear more from you and to see your own work! Thank you so much for taking the time and stroll around my blog and random stories :D. That made my day! Hope to see you again! Ciao!

  22. @ Kaja: Aye Pirates indeed!!! :D

    @ J. Brandano: Stay Tuned for the collab!!!

    @ Kriti, Rimly, lakhsmi & Shanannagins, Hari & Mark: Thank you :D :D

    Hmm...I'm kinda silly. I ended up replying to you all anyway! Haha.

  23. I've already liked you everywhere. I just want to WIN WIN WIN!!!!!


    I mean....

    I love you and you're wonderful. If I win that's just icing on my unicorn's butt. \(^.^)/
