Things I'll Remember Fondly from 2016

Monday, January 2, 2017


Things I'll remember fondly from 2016:

#1 Created my first online course for Learn Squared
#2 Took a painting course from my colleague Maciej Kuciara and started applying what I learned to my photos
#3 Completed a business program from Stanford Graduate School of Business
#4 Visited Sunrise and met the creator of Gundam, Yoshiyuki Tomino-san 😱😱😱
#5 Made tribute to a friend
#6 Got back into photography
#7 Donated Motherland piece for a Direct Relief charity calendar
#8 Started on my years-long overdue retouching backlog
#9 Shot Harper's Bazaar Vietnam Jan 2017 cover with Coco Rocha and Phuong My

Also:
#10 Reunion and road trip with my StarCraft 2 team in San Francisco
#11 Got a follow from Guillermo del Toro on Twitter (omg)
#12 Started selling my fine art prints
#13 Exhibited in China, India and Germany, alongside people like Harry Gruyaert and Steve McCurry
#14 Hang out with one of my fav authors CS Pacat
#15 Spoke for my first time in Japan
#16 Fell in and out of love
#17 Got braces 😁

I continue to be the laziest person I know and hate my own work to an unhealthy degree. So for the new year, I hope I can dig myself out from depression just a little and be slightly more productive than I had been in 2016.

I'd like to wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy 2017. Let's work hard together! ❤️
