It's been a while, dA.

I remember starting out here, posting a steady stream of so-so wallpapers and attempts at illustration. Since then, my life has changed dramatically. I've joined dribbble, made my own website, and become a professional icon & UI designer.

With this change, however, I've stopped using dA. My old works here look clumsy and crude to me now, and I've stopped updating things. For that reason, I'm declaring this account "inactive". I've decided to leave my stuff up for posterity, though, so it will function as a time capsule rather than a source of new works.

Thanks especially to Coconuts [Prathyush & Pranav] and Iconpaper for the support and encouragement they provided on my earliest works, encouraging me to keep going. Thanks to everyone who has followed, fav'd, and commented. You've helped me become a better artist and a happier person.

Oh, and, free cake. Enjoy.

Hey!

I love your new site, it looks very nice, clean, simple, easy to navigate and well organized :clap:

But it's sad to see you leave dA after all these years, I wish you good luck with your designer career :aww:

Also, I've seen that cake on dribbble and I've been wanting it since, so I was wondering if you could sharing it with me (with and without the dish) please, as the last request on dA :flirty:

Hiya! I remember you making nice comments on my stuff ages ago :3

The cake was a one-night illustration made with lots of sugar, to get the site launched on dribbble. I designed the original shot at... 800x600, so the cake is really small :( no decent icon to be given.

The best I can offer is a 256px version, but it will look ugly because that is twice the intended final size and so I did not pay much attention to detail. Still, if you want, here you go [link]

And, no PSD, remember, I work in GIMP ;)

Hey!

That's such a cute and yummy cake, thank you! :aww:

And too bad you're moving because I won't be able to comment on your work anymore since I have a standard dribbble account and comments are not enabled on your official site :cry:

But please never stop making ossom icons, I love'em!
