It’s been… 4 years since I last used this blog.1But you wouldn’t know that if this is the first time you visit this place, because I just made all my posts from 2008 to 2014 private. I’ve become pretty reserved this past year.

Tumblr and Twitter I mostly use to post art, and I have a private twitter account that I spam daily with thoughts and works in progress. Continue reading “Blogging again?”
