2013 was rough. I have to start with that. 

A lot of my art came from the summer of 2012, when I met most of you, and when MLP became a huge part of my life and got me inspired to do art again. But saying 2013 is rough is also an understatement. In 2014 I will turn 30. I've had depression since I was 15 years old. That's half my life I've been afflicted with a disease that has kept me from enjoying my time on this earth and from creating so much more. For me and for all of you. I can't let it continue.

I've found journal entries (not on DeviantArt, in real life) from back when I was 15 all the way up until now, and they all sound exactly the same. The same struggles, the same wishes to get better, the same strategies...but nothing ever worked.

This year, I have to try something different. I have a different strategy and different methods. I don't have a choice. I can't live the rest of my life like this. I can't let the disease win.

This won't get read by many...a lot of my watchers probably wrote me off as having dropped off the face of the Earth, and in a way they were right. I never wanted to give up on art or my fans. I strive to do better.

Here's to wishing everyone an incredible year to come. If your 2013 was rough like mine...we'll make 2014 better. If you're 2013 was amazing...then 2014 will still top it. :)

Happy New Year, everyone. Thanks for watching.

Always,
World8

Man, I wanted to say I was a budding young artist, but I suppose I'm neither "budding" nor "young" at this point! I'm a child of the early eighties and therefore have a minor obsession with Nintendo and most things video-gamey/awesome (which now obviously includes MLP:FiM). Comics, cartoons, movies, you name it, they were all my muses growing up.

I write, I draw, and I digitally paint. I'm here to share my work with you all and hopefully gain some feedback so I may improve and share even better work with you!

I've decided to take on commissions! Send me a note if you're interested and we can discuss prices.
