Hello World

Hello, and welcome to my blog! I had thought about starting a blog for a long time, but was always too shy to start. I see a blog as a way of sharing parts of yourself with the world, and that can be a scary thing. What if the world doesn't like you? What if you don't like yourself? What if adding these additional bits of data to the digital world destroy the internet, and it's all my fault? Ouch!

Seriously though, I want to share my art with people, and that's why I started this blog. I want to keep track of my artistic progress, both successes and failures. I'd like to one day get the courage to share all of those hideously bad drawings that tend to be pushed under the rug and forgotten, because those terrible drawings are important too. Finally, I'd like to look back on this blog in a year or two and see how I've changed as a person. Hopefully, it'll be for the better.

As for the title of this post, I couldn't think of anything clever to say. I remember a programming class I took, and our first assignment was to create a program that said “Hello World.” Considering the global nature of the internet, it seemed like an appropriate title. So Hello again, and I hope I meet some awesome people.

    i think we are all afraid of the same things about blogging... i hope you'll have so much nice days in bloggerland and i'm sure that sharing your works will be so useful and comments will be encouraging for you!

    wish you all the best,


I imagine that the comment box feels lonely when it's empty, so leaving a comment would be a great thing to do. If you leave a nice comment, good things might happen.
