Hello!

Journaling used to be one of my favourite things to do on dA and then... I guess I just ran out of things to say here? :-? Most of my closest dA friends I've also friended on Facebook and other social media so they're are well informed (very well informed, trust me!) about how my life is going. Yay for "real-life internet"!
But I woke up this morning and suddenly something kept pressing me to write a new journal entry, so I thought it would be cool to give a bit of a life update to watchers new and old about what's been happening in my life since my last journal. I've been on dA for ten years this year, so it seems only fitting anyway - there still are some people I don't know anywhere outside of dA and it would be nice to start interacting more on this site again. Many people I know have moved on from here, but my soft spot for deviantArt remains. 

Oh well, let's get to it then!

• Firstly, I'm happy to report that I'm still happily involved with psyclone and this year we will be together for what, nine years? :O It was actually dA that bought us together because we met through a Deviant Meetup in Stellenbosch during my first/freshman year in college! :D We've also bought a house together two years ago which leads me to point number two...
• I've moved! Once again, I find myself living in Somerset West but hopefully this time it's a bit more err... permanent than the last time! Couldn't be happier!
• Two years ago and coinciding with the big move I've made a leap of faith and began doing photography and illustration full-time and it's been a really wild, unexpectedly successful ride so far! This very journal is testament to how difficult I've found photography to be over the years and I still cannot believe that it's my career now and that I'm moderately successful at it! In fact, thanks to the lovely DistortedSmile, I've even had two of my photographs featured as Daily Deviations the past few years! :O 
• Aside from buying a house, psyclone and I have also traveled a bit - we went to visit old friends of mine in Germany for two weeks in 2013 and made some side-trips to Austria and Switzerland while we were there. That trip changed my life and I am absolutely, completely irrevocably in love with the city of Munich and the entire surrounding area of Bayern! I absolutely cannot wait to return and I believe one day psyclone and I may just end up living there - even if just for a short while!
• My hair is still pink - in fact it's all pink with a purple ombré, which is 100% thanks to me being a brand ambassador for Anonamiss Beauty Emporium!
• All around, I'm pretty happy with life at the moment and it can only go up from here! :)

Let me know if you guys would like more journals from me or not!

South Africa

I'm Grethe, from a sleepy hollow of a town way down there in sunny South Africa... :sun:

Although I've been drawing just about my whole life, I studied a three-year degree course in graphic design and photography and obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in graphic design in 2008.
Currently, I work as a professional photographer and image retoucher as well as a professional illustrator on a freelance basis, and on contract for a local publisher.
My illustration clients include Benedic Books and Media, the South African Air Force's National Display Team- The Silver Falcons, and the Albatross Disaster Fund.

I love the colours orange, pink, red, purple, white, blue, yellow and silver, TEA, cats, ducks, aviation (especially military- fighter jets <3) sleeping late, making music and indulging in awesome/nerdery...

Read through some old journals and stuff today: not a good idea. At least it's home time now, I've hurt myself enough for the day. :(
