The end is near!

It's true.

My last day at Funcom is tomorrow.

I feel like my future is bright, as if I'm being blinded after being locked up in the dark cage. I feel as though I am still letting my eyes adjust in order to see where I'm going to end up. The honest truth is that I can't even begin to guess. My path was not to end in Norway. I worked for Norway, but Norway didn't work for me. I gave it my best shot, I tried, but ultimately it didn't work out. I'm grateful for my experience, but I accept that it wasn't meant to be.

I don't have any clue where I'll end up or what will happen, but all I know is that I am going to try my damndest to steer myself toward my goal of being a full time professional concept artist, then eventually to my main goal of being a location independent full time freelance artist. In some ways it's as though I've moved full circle- moving back in with my parents, back to the city I left two years ago... But I feel this experience had to happen or I wouldn't be the person I am today. And I quite like that person.

I wanted to take the time to thank everyone whose ever helped me on this journey and I hope that I will continue to help and support my friends on their respective journeys. All of your thoughts, opinions, suggestions and such have helped to shape my decision and I feel this is what feels right for me now. My plan is to stay with my parents and just work my absolute hardest on my artwork, dedicating some months to solid improvement, hopefully without the distraction of a part-time retail job (for a few months anyway). I don't plan on resting until I reach my goals. I think this sacrifice was necessary to get to the next level in my artwork and my career. I firmly believe that in life you have to follow your dreams, no matter what they are, and if you don't, you are letting a big part of yourself down.

So all in all, thanks a bunch you guys and I appreciate everything!
