I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your kind support this year! Your likes, tweets, reblog, blog posts, emails and any kind words have made my art feel more loved. 2012 was indeed another good year for me; I had the opportunity to do crazy shit that I want to do before I die, I also got involved in lots of inspiring projects and travel abroad to few countries. I'm looking forward to achieving more good things in 2013. My new years' resolution is to stay longer in this country, get a full-time job, involved in more crazy art projects and chase more dreams. I hope everyone has a beautiful New Years Eve and safe holiday season!!! AYEE!!
