Hi all!

Okayy. So my last journal was about me turning 18. This summer I'll turn 20. Something went wrong here. It's been so long since I've drawn anything. Like at all. 
I'm not entirely sure what happened. Maybe it's because I'm really busy lately. I'm doing an internship at Roamler at the moment, which takes a lot of time. I'm supposed to work 32 hours a week, but I reach 38 easily. Besides that, I have one day of school, my work at a supermarket, basketball practices and games and I've recently started tutoring. Most of my free time goes to the shows I watch (maybe a bit too many shows to follow each week haha). 

I can blame my absence on being busy, but that wouldn't be the whole truth. The past year - I think - I just haven't felt like drawing. I just looked at my equipment and didn't have any inspiration. Seeing some awesome drawings on Instagram made me realise how long it has been.

I really do miss drawing, talking to you guys and looking at all the amazing art on here. I haven't succeeded in finding a good reference photo for a new drawing, but I can feel the itch in my hands to start drawing again! Which I take as a good sign ;) Hopefully I'll be able to show some new work soon and finish the drawing I started working on too long ago.

Hope to catch up with you all and see all your lovely art!

Warm regards,
Maaike

PS. Any suggestions for a good reference photo are welcome!
