How Ian Got His Groove Back
Happy New Year, Everyone!
And just like that, 2011 comes to an end.
I've gotten older, every year's end comes quicker and quicker than the last. I know that's what everyone says, but I find it to be too true. I'll give 2011 this: it sure was a helluva lot better than the past few years (can I say decade? I think I can.). In fact, I realized this: I didn't get anything spectacular for Christmas. No fancy electronics, no super-collectable figures, no new games or clothes or money, none of that. I even had to work Christmas Eve and Day. But I realized that my year has been so significantly better, that I'm happy with it. I couldn't have ended it better, actually. 7 art shows, culminating in an Art Basel gallery show? Yeah, I'll take that over WWE '12.
...Although you could get that for me, if you want. I ain't gonna turn it down.
2012's shaping up to be a good one, too. I have my first ArtHeart show lined up for the end of January, the monthly Art Blog Sketch Attack art blog that I'm taking part in, and, hopefully, other great opportunities. And, while I'm behind on my Art Journal entries, I'll get them all caught up after New Year's, as well as attempting to post a sketch a day.
Anyway, I hope you all have a fun, satisfying, and safe New Year's tonight, and I wish you all the very best in 2012.
You know, before that whole end-of-the-world thing.
Happy New Year!
