Yay! 5000 page views! ;) Not that it's such a hummongous number, but it is a pleasant milestone.

I have to admit, I've been neglecting DeviantArt for quite a last journal entry was in March more than a year ago. I don't think I've posted any entries since last year either. Haven't drawn so much as a stick figure since February last year too. Life's been taken over...well, by my life. ;)

Sadly, drawing supplies have been put away for a while. Instead, photography has become the biggest activity outside the day job that pays my bills. In that last journal entry in March last year I was worried about my shaky hands while shooting my first concert from the photo pit. To make a long story short - the results came out pretty nice, especially since I had very vague idea of what I'm actually doing with my "pro" camera. A few pics even got published on the artist's website. :) Since then I've continued going to shows (about 50, give or take, in the last 18 months) and snapping pics with whatever camera I can get in and use. Went overseas to catch a few shows of my fave band EXTREME (the "More Than Words" guys from the 90s, just in case you were wondering)...4 shows in 4 days in 4 different US states - that's intense even for my standards. Of course, my cameras went with me...and the band probably got tired of seeing me with my big point-n-shoot camera up front every night, so they gave me an official photo pass, perhaps hoping they'll finally get me out of their faces once the first 3 songs are over (no such luck, sorry!:D). The 4-day run culminated in a recording of a live show for a DVD and CD... and I am quite proud to say that 10 out of 12 pictures featured on the cover/inserts of that DVD/CD are mine. First official printed publication: check. Last but not least, I've set up my own photo site: WWW.JADELUXPHOTO.COM, which makes it easier to keep up appearances that I actually know what I'm doing with a camera. ;))

Ok...back to work now...still got a ton of unpublished pics to sort out...
