Interests
Next month will be the five year mark for my existence on DeviantArt, and about seven years that I've been making art. I suppose in the last few years I've more or less lost the right to call myself an artist. I've submitted nigh onto nothing. I've started a few pieces but they never developed in to anything worth submitting. I used to identify myself as an abstract artist but that genre itself seems dead--at least, the form it took on at its inception roughly nine years ago is dead. It has now evolved into something I find hard to relate to, and the fire inside that drove me to produce what now lies nearly forgotten in my gallery from 2004, 2005, and to a lesser extent, 2006 has burnt out.

This post has turned more cliche than I intended it to be, alas this is the point where normally I would announce some sort of official retirement from art, never to be heard from again until I show up in a year, announcing some new-found reawakening of talent and creativity. So for brevity I will skip that since ultimately I will end up back here anyway. Next, I am supposed to blame changes in my life for my lack of productivity. While it is true that Electrical and Computer Engineering is a demanding major to say the least, if I so found myself inspired I'm sure I could find plenty of time to produce art. Perhaps then I should announce some shift in genre. In that respect, I do intend--intend being the key word here--to jump focus to photography having recently acquired a Nikon D90 to replace my tired old Canon Powershot S50. But it is winter here, and severe cold is not something I'm comfortable exposing such an expensive camera to, even with zip-lock bags and silica gel to keep condensation at bay. So if you're feeling optimistic, look for photography submissions coming this summer. As for abstract, I have no idea if or when I will ever finish another piece.

With that, I think I've covered all of the requisite topics to include in the first new journal in many years. Good luck with your own pursuits, art and otherwise.
