Hello from Shanghai

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 26, 2011, 3:45 AM

Wow, it has been a very long time since I've done *anything* on DeviantArt.  Kind of crazy, although I guess it isn't so crazy when you look at the fact that I've been on dA for 8 years now.  THAT's crazy.

Anyway, as you can see from the title of this journal entry (and my location on my profile page), I am living in Shanghai now.  I'm here teaching English for a year, and experiencing the amazing culture, food, people and language of China.  It's definitely an experience I'll never forget, and I've only been here for a little over a month.

Although you'd think I would be very busy, living in a foreign country and whatnot, I seem to have plenty of time on my hands.  I think I shall spend some of this time (maybe even tonight) working on some art.  I brought my latest WIP with me from the US, and I think it's about time I finish it... it's been sitting around for a long time unfinished.  I also should be able to sneak in some new photography submissions here... there are plenty of interesting things to photograph, but the trick is to do it in some sort of artistic way.  So far, I've mainly just been taking snapshots to show my friends and family what my life is like here.  But I think I might get artsy sometime soon, depending.  The weather is getting cold, so I might not get too much photography in in the next few months, since I might just want to spend more of my time indoors.

If any of you who have been "watching" me are reading this, I appreciate that you're still around, and please let me know that you're there!  I'd love to hear from you and hear how you're doing.  I have had some dear friends here on dA through the years, and lost touch with some of you, it seems, even with the invention of facebook.

Speaking of facebook, if you haven't added my artwork page on facebook yet, check it out:…

Okay, time to finish my noodles and think about finishing up this WIP... ;)
