Wow, that was a long hiatus, wasn't it? Alright, to be fair, I was making art and uploading it to the site, I just...never updated here, lol. So, I apologize unreservedly and reward anyone still watching this damned site with a new Teen Wolf layout, featuring my three favorite actors from the series - Dylan O'Brien (Stiles), Holland Roden (Lydia) and Tyler Hoechlin (Derek). I did originally have a new layout all ready to be put up before Christmas, and then I suckered myself into taking on WAY too many projects over the Christmas period and when I went to update the layout yesterday I just...wasn't feeling it. It was based on a Stiles wall that you can find in the Teen Wolf section, but it was just too dark for me. I loved the wallpaper, but I loved my black and white layout more, so I threw together this yesterday and I feel a lot happier with it.
And for those of you who were wondering where I disappeared to - I got a job!! I'd been out of work a long time due to ill health and disability and at the start of 2014 I felt that I'd been wallowing in my own self-pity for far too long and I started looking for a job. It took me five months, but eventually I found a job, as a jewelery rep for a few local retailers, and I love it. I recently passed my sixth month probation and have been made permanent and I couldn't be happier. I've still been making art and uploading it here, just...forgot to actually update, lol. I promise, this year, I'll try to not let the whole thing get away from me again.
In saying that, I'm not going to go through everything and make a list of all the wallpapers I've made in the last eight months(!) but I'll try to remember to do that at least once a month from here on out. But you can still see some of them on the left.
This year, I want to try my hand at making brushes, so keep an eye out for that coming soon. I've also been making a lot of Tumblr art (link to my Tumblr is on the left) and I want to create a space for that here, incase people aren't following me there, so I'll do that soon.
Lastly this update, I want to point out that I've made some Gradient Textures, which you can find HERE. I know a lot of people who use Gradient Textures, so I hope that someone out there gets some use out of them. They're a lot of fun to make, so look out for more of them.
I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Years and, again, I'm so, so sorry for disappearing. I'll try to be better.
Thank you so much to everyone who visited, I couldn't do this without you!!
