Full Circle - The Evolution Of An Artist
I once said that first and foremost, how you see your artwork is what matters the most. 
I stand by those comments to this day and it really is what matters the most. Insecurity within your own artwork plagues many people. In this day and age of instant gratification with facebook, flickr, DA, 500px, everyone wants a pat on the back and ages ago on DA I wrote several journals about this about how deep down, it's all just meaningless BS.

Mainly though, I've found a community of people who love art (in all it's forms) and this always makes me come back to this site!

Am I late or what?!

Anyways... inbetween crazy deadlines for games and videos I had the pleasure to answer some interview questions for Tim from Boardgamebeaver. It's mostly about Carcassonne so if you're into it or games or my work (haha) maybe check it out.…

Theoretically there will be 9 games at the fair in Nürnberg I did or am still working on so if you wonder if I'm super lazy and couch all day: Sadly not. ;)

And to keep the mails at bay: I am booked out for 2017 already. Sorry.
