concept art workshop seattle 2010

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010, let's hope that you all and I become even the better artist for the year to come and be on the road of living the dream doing what you love and live comfortably as long as we draw and paint. :)

And I just thought this year, I should do something more with what I secretly deeply care about. So I decided to put the donation links of the organizations that I feel strongly toward that they need help, support, and donation. You can find the banners and links on the top right column of the blog. We, especially I (me), really do deeply care about wildlife so go donate or support them by volunteer or anything you can do at and Save them wildlife, it's our job (Yeah, you and me). :)

"Also Thanks to ALL OF YOU READERs and SUPPORTERs of
We donate to save the wild turtle at WWF as this NEW YEAR's gift is for ALL OF YOU. Much love. Without you boys and girls, idrawgirls would not have come this far. It's year 4 we are entering here." ~ Xia Taptara :)

Here is a certified GIFT from WWF:

I got to know this trough Richard... too bad I'm from Malta man! I really wish I was there and be at all the things you organise, like conventions and stuff.

Anyhow, I hope that this year I work even harder and be more intense about being a better artist... hopefully I start my professional path as well...that's at least one of my resolutions, and I'm gonna work hard for it! ;)
