Hey everyone! I'm pretty sure anyone that followed me back in my heyday isn't around anymore. Even so, I figured I'd write an update for no one in particular. I'm sill alive and kicking here in NYC. I've just submitted a few new deviations, mostly photography. That's only part of what I'm doing these days.
I've been doing a lot of illustration, a lot of watercolors, a lot of photography and a lot of web and print design. Some people call me the quintessential artist(mostly myself) and maybe I am. I'm beginning to realize more and more as time goes on that I can't work in any other field. I need to be able to do creative things. My creativity bleeds into my personal relationships too. I can't be creative and have a girlfriend, it just can't happen.
I was practically engaged for a short while in a relationship that progressed SUPER quickly, but things fell apart and once they did I probably created the most artwork in the span of a week since art school. Maybe I'll find that balance one day but for now it eludes me.
So what's next for Marvin? What's on the horizon? Well...I'm thinking of going back to designing full time as a freelance artist/designer. It's what I'm good at. It's what I love. But I also found photography sometime last year and I love it to death as well. I hope to be diving into the world of fashion and glamour type photography and not looking back. I'm in New York City and I have to take advantage of the stuff around me. Models, talent, fashion, locations are all accessible and it seems like the next logical step for me because I love portraits. I love people as subjects. I also love street photography and taking photos without permission and I will still continue that.
Will I continue to make cameo appearances on DA? Hard to say but I'd love to if I have the time. I miss that part of my life, but I'm just so busy these days. Who knew being an adult was so hard?
