This means a lot to me. I started my digital art self-learning journey via Deviant art few years back when I was in high school. I still recall a high school teacher roasted me saying that I'm wasting my time doing art but I never concerned. In 2012 and 2013 midst of SPM, some of my works are published in local newspaper. In 2014, I saw the chance in Nandos Art Initiative competition and decided to give it a shot but I was only shortlisted as finalist. Around 2015, I tried again and I finally got it - The first placing of the category. Meanwhile I get to have my own solo digital art exhibtiion! It is originally set in the end of 2015 or early 2016 but there's lots of delays from my side due to my final year project and thesis. Lastly, now as I am months away to my graduation ceremony I have an empty gap of free time to finish this up!
