Due to the direction my life has been taking both generally and creatively, I will have to dismantle my gallery and close my DA account. I have had to let go of some things that have been keeping me from moving ahead. It's just something I have to do. Sometimes before things can come alive, some old things need to die. It's like a change of seasons. I truly treasure all the connections and exchanges I have made on this site and it doesn't mean you'll never see me again. DA is not the whole world. I'm just moving to a different "house."
EDIT: All this wasn't easy but please understand it is something I absolutely have to do. I am sorry for any disappointment I've caused, I don't want to be insensitive to that. Let me elaborate that yes, this means all my DA projects are dismissed. THAT was hard and painful, I literally lost sleep over it but I knew it had to be done so that I can move forward to even BETTER projects. I don't expect everyone to understand but my projects were becoming idols to me--it choked my creativity and messed me up. DA itself is also getting darker and darker. People talk about me having fans but this was never about me. I'm not a celebrity, I don't want to be idolized. I answer to God and it is my job to be obedient to his call--HE is the one who gave me this gift in the first place and he is my Boss and Art Director. I have to listen to God rather than man. As soon as I let go, I felt so much peace. It is because Christ has better things in store for me and I want to go to my grave with no regrets.
