It's been an exciting and eventful year for me! The biggest news is that I bought a house. I will now (finally) have a dedicated office AND a photo studio in the garage! It's also nice to know that this art career that I chose is lucrative enough to make a living on.MAGAZINE COVER
From what I'm told, this issue was a very good seller and a lot of people told me that they only bought it because of the cover (too bad I don't get royalty's
). It's also completely sold out in every store in town! I'll have to buy my extra copy online.WALLPAPERS
I keep forgetting to show you the wallpaper I made of this image:
For those of you in Germany, you can now see this image on the German version of the magazine as well.
I will also be featured in issue #52 of Advanced Photoshop, which will come out in January (Europe). It will feature one never before seen image!
My image SKIN DEEP will be featured in that issue as well as the annual publication from ItsArtMag.comUNFINISHED WORK
Here are a few images that I just never finished this year. SMALLER PROJECTS
and some that I just never bothered to upload.TRAVELING PHOTOSHOOTS
This was the first year that I started going on photoshoots while traveling and I'm very happy with the results and I plan to do more of that in the future.NEW ZEALAND

Maria 3 YEARS ON DA
Just a few days ago marked my 3rd year on DeviantArt. It would have been just another day but I ended up with 150,000 page views on that exact day. I thought that was quite a coincidence!5 DAILY DEVIATIONS
Wow 5! That's got to be some kind of record! DESCRIPTIONS
I've rewritten a lot of my descriptions to be more relevant and I've linked any images together that use the same model.
BTW, please let me know if you see any spelling errors in my descriptions (I'm terrible). I look so silly when 10,000 people have looked at one of my images and I later realize that I made a stupid error.
