Building a (new) beginning

I am currently head over heels in preparing my very first art portfolio and because of iOS way of cataloguing the camera roll – (I work with 3 devices each with its own directory) – I collated new work in individual folders as back up..

Leaving me with a massive task to do: reconciling, sifting and deleting all duplicates.

From 55k down to 10k just for my iPad Pro. Still got 7k+ from iPhone + iPad mini to sort after the 10k are done. View my art feed.

So for now – I am minimizing my editorial activities to a strict minimum.

Netdiver Mag is on hiatus.
