Hello everyone:

Seems like the theme of my journal entries this year is "been a long time blah blah blah". Again, I do come by every day to dA and scope the art landscape, seeing what new work lays on the horizon. Some thoughts on stuff-

- The new dA logo? Eh, the less said the better.

- Very slow year for conventions. I only did one and just a few in-store appearances. I had to step back from shows. I got burnt out and burned financially in 2013, so I laid low and decided to take a sabbatical. I will be doing some shows in 2015; which ones I don't quite know yet.

- Was nominated at my school for Teacher Of The Year. Obviously didn't get it, but still cool none-the-less.

- I post regularly on Instagram (NickMockoviak). I f you want to see some in-progress pics, check out my account and add me.

- Enrolled in a watercolor painting class this year. My work jumped in quality. Very eager to continue learning and growing.

- Still noodling away on my picture book.

- Do you ever feel that you find yourself falling into an endless pattern of looking for inspiration, motivation, "how-to" instruction, etc.....without ever actually making anything? Like, you become addicted to finding new things to motivate you like buying art books, prints- but you don't use that new found inspiration to produce? That's been me all year.


Here's to a productive 2015.
