Recap of 2010

My new year's resolution is to grow a beard like that.

I'm serious.

No, not really. I don't even have facial hair lol.

Every end of the year, I will do this meme that I found yeaaarrsss ago on LiveJournal. Yes, I had a LiveJournal account. Key word = had. Well, technically I still have it but since I started this blog I barely update it anymore lol. It's gathering dust and feels quite ignored, poor thing.

Nooo I failed miserably! One of them was producing at least 2 artworks per month. I managed to keep up until somewhere in June, then I failed horribly. But I will definitely make more for 2011. And a part of them had been told in my previous post on my creative goals for 2011.

Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road
- Not Afraid, Eminem

And that's it for 2010, see you all again in 2011. :) Have a fantastic new year!!
