Improvement meme

I always wanted to create such a meme by my own ... now I did :D

Please take a look at it in full view!!

There you can see my artistic improvement from 2003 till this year 2011. Of course, 2011 isn't over yet, but I couldn't wait to post it, haha :'D

Life obliges me to do something, so I paint..

*Sigh* I love quotations about art..

Whatever,.. this time I have a - ...well how to say? - a present! Yes, that's the right word for it... I have a present for you, my dear supporters.- KIRIBAN TIME :D

I just thought it was about time making a new, painted Kiriban :)

You, my supporters/followers etc., always cheer me up and motivate me. You all give me so much without even thinking about a consideration.

So, hereby I wish to express my gratitude to all of you and I am looking forward to hearing from you <3
