    Hey all,

    I've been thinking about this off and on for a while and I've finally come to the decision a couple weeks ago that it is time for me to step down as your Fan Art moderator and move on. My professional art career is starting to blossom and I need all the time necessary to pursue it. I've also been suffering from burnout and the forum and the community itself deserves better.

    This is by no means a farewell - I fully intend to continue to post in the community and share my artwork with everyone. I have a lot of fun and interesting projects in the works (including sketch cards for Star Wars Galaxy 7) that I would like to share with everyone when I am able. You guys have been absolutely great over the past several years and it has been a real pleasure to be your moderator. I hope the community continues to grow in the future and thrive with a tight-knit group of artists, fans and collectors. We truly have something special here - a real sense of camaraderie that goes above and beyond what I have seen elsewhere. I wish you all the best of luck! [:D]

    With that said, the process of selecting and promoting your new moderator is already well underway. Expect an announcement to be made within the next couple of days!

    Good luck with your career! I hope to see you at a convention some day so you can review my portfolio. :p

    It won't be the same without you but I know that you will be around and posting. Wishing you all the best for your career, I am glad that you are pursuing further with your artistry and I am excited to see what you are working on next :) [:D].

    Thanks, guys! You're all really great! [:D]

    Even though I'm not leaving for good, it's still going to be hard to step down from the position I've held almost 6 years. But like I said, it's time. It's time to give someone else the chance to make this place shine. ;)

    Haha, maybe someday I'll get to that point! I'm hoping to, anyway. In fact, I'm already looking into different conventions and where would be a good place to start. If things go according to plan, you may start seeing me show up at conventions next year! [face_peace]

    While I'm sad to see you step down, I'm sure you will have all the greatest success in your career - it sounds like you are heading towards some really exciting places! Hopefully in a few years I will see you at Artist's Alley at DragonCon! :)

    Hell, for that matter, I hope to some day get to your position!

    Any parting words for any aspiring artists who are looking for publishers and fame?

    Also get better! That is the most important thing after a burnout, hon.
