It's been a year I guess. There have been lots of ups and downs - I've broken some personal boundaries and learned a lot in the process. I've also been on a much needed creative break that's turned into a prolonged apathetic procrastination. I lost interest in the social medias and art communities - but that's a subject for a different post. It's time to move on and fix the attitude. I want to apologize to anyone whose comments and favs I've neglected. All the feedback means a lot to me and I aim to be a more active member of this community going forward. We'll see, haha.
In other news, I'm going to Tidaholm, Sweden for a month-long residency in their fantastic lithography workshop, very excited about that! There's a small backlog of work to post, but I also have lots of arrangements to make before leaving to Sweden, I'll begin posting again when it's convenient. There's so much that I've missed here... any time I hover over the notifications menu to see the 10k+ messages waiting there, it feels like a hundred megaton middle finger is ejecting out of the screen to crush my face
But again, perhaps more on that later.
I've also managed to put together a website: www.markoikavalko.com/
Tell me what you think! I'm gonna make myself write that artist statement while staying in Sweden... really!
A creative and productive rest of 2015 to the lot of ya!
