"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'" - Erma Bombeck
Things here have been quiet for a long time, and while I do feel I owe some sort of explanation, I won't be getting into anything specific. The easiest way to put it is this: This way of expressing my ideas has ceased to be rewarding and I have decided to move in a different direction. My first love has always been comics and last year I put a great deal of effort into creating one of my own. This project, which was a standard twenty two pages, took me from 31052012 to 30092012. In that time I managed to push out a slight five pages. These pages, while a testament to what I feel I can do with the digital medium, also robbed me of the fire that kept my artistic furnace going, it snuffed that flame out.
I have been unable to do anything creative since and I feel my gallery reflects that. I went from updating regularly to sparsely to not at all in a quick period of time. I stopped participating with the artistic community and fell into a lull, which I have now emerged from. This doesn't mean you will be seeing more artwork by 'Nobodythere', quite the contrary. I am done with that identity and this way of working, I have to be if I want to continue to grow as an artist. All of my work, where I have control over it, will be taken offline. I am closing this chapter of my life and starting anew.
This new start will not be under a new pseudonymous identity either, I will be going by my real name and will be throwing away all ties to the reputation, be it positive or negative, I have built up within my Nobodythere identity. I will not be linking to a new site, I will not be sending a select few of you a link in a private line when I come back online. I will be going totally dark.
I hope you understand this decision wasn't easy to make and is not at all meant as a snub to any of you. I do appreciate the contributions you have all made and have allowed me to make, nonetheless a fresh start cannot be made without severing all ties. Thank you for everything and finally:
