Hello everyone,
you still remember me? XD

I know that's more than a year that I'm not active on DA and I am very sorry for that! 2015 was a very difficult year for me (also 2016 no joke) XD

It was a period of change, in which I was very demotivated drawing.
I have always believed in the work of illustrator, but thanks to underpaid commissions and editors who have never paid for my illustrations, I thought maybe I had the wrong road, that maybe I had to change.

So I opened a shop of fantasy jewelry and accessories (my other passion) that I continue to treat with extreme dedication.
If you want to take a look here's the fb link (www.facebook.com/Midnight-Nymp…)

Despite this, I feel unsatisfied, as if I had left off something very important to me. I have devoted much of my time, my money and my energy, to improve my skills in drawing and illustration. I have always seen with humility toward new techniques, to new artists and new trends, trying to learn as much as possible and trying to stay up to, but in the end I was back. 

I felt that my work was constantly exploited, I felt that all the efforts were not understood, and, finally, I did not feel adequate enough. I felt that maybe I was not so good to be able to work in the professional world and then I felt myself far from all this!

Dedicate myself to photography and jewerly design, has helped me a lot. I understand that in any case, any road or change I decide to take, I CAN'T stop drawing. it's stronger than me, it is a need that somehow I have to perform.

Excuse the loooong post, but it was something that I had to speak.

I love this community and here I met wonderful people, who do not want to stop following!

I tornrò gradually with my illustrations, leaving inspired by the wonderful art that this community offers me!

Thanks so much for everything! :heart:
