Awards!!!!

Holy crap! so many awards!!. If you didn’t know the AFA 2011 ceremony happened a few weeks ago and can I say it was so much fun! I got to talk to people I’ve admired for a long time in the fanart world (all be it online it wasn’t a physical thing) and I also got a lot of fantastic awards! I said something during the ceremony that I think sums up how amazing the awards have been.

its difficult sometimes especially in my job doing art work for really boring things like… wire products (yes I said wire) among other really boring things (I’m sure most of you are in a similar boat), and then come back and work on other art work even if it is enjoyable it can still become a chore doing it all day and evenings, but I have to say the AFA awards have given me such a boost in confidence and drive! and Ehlwyen I’m so glad I got back into Buffy Forums its been such a help for my inspiration and education, I have to say I rely a lot on you guys for inspiration especially with the forum challenges and giving me a reason to keep going with the art work if it wasn’t for Buffy Forums and the community here I probably would have packed it in years ago!!!!

and I’m totally with you Amber there were a few artists I didn’t know about before the AFA such as Xinyi, Sophie, Clement, and JJ to name a few but I’ve saved all their art work and got it on my wallpaper rotator I’m so glad I joined in the AFA this year its been really uplifting and I hope everyone feels the same way. so thank you SayJay for brining us all together and enhancing the already fantastic Buffy Forums Art Community!
