Good news, bad news.

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 2, 2012, 1:05 AM
It's been a while, things have been a little quiet on DA for me lately. So I apologize for that. It's been a crazy month for me, a lot of personal stuff has happened which has kind of put things on hold for a while.

My father passed away a few weeks ago, it hit me pretty hard because we were really close. His name was Bob Brown, also a great artist and a singer, he was in a rock band back in his day. Anyway I've had some time to adjust to it, trying to get back into the swing of things now :)

The good news is.. I'm getting married! Me and my beautiful girlfriend Allira went on a holiday just a week ago (had it planned for months) we went to Thailand, also went on the Phi Phi Island tour where I seized the chance and got down on one knee, popped the question, showed her the ring I've been hiding for months, and she said yes! So now we're engaged!

So it's all happening now, I'm very excited about it all. I also just bought a whole new office setup, recently I got the new Cintiq Touch so I had to get a bigger/better desk so I had room for everything. I'll be very happy doing new artwork now, all I need is a good drafting table and I'm set ;) I have a few new projects lined up, so expect to see more soon!

Patrick, you are one of the most amazing artists on deviantART, I always enjoy looking at your pictures and it also inspires my dad when he is writing a new book.
I really do feel sorry about your loss, I also lost my grandma not long ago (she was 84, pretty old eh?).
But now that you are Engaged you will (as we (in my country) call it) "start your life all over again". One thing though, never forget about us, your fans. We will always support you and your art.
Sinerely,
Me :)

I echo whatever is said below and above this comment. A good man deserves a Cintiq and a beautiful wife.

I'm a good man with a beautiful wife. But the Cintiq, however... *sigh*...

All the best, Mr. Brown! :thumbsup::D
