It's been a long while since I last posted a journal here. Deviantart became somewhat "quiet" lately and I made it even quieter by not visiting here like old times.
Anyway, here I am now! Writing a journal and even posted a bunch of new deviations
I am mostly using facebook to share my paintings these days. Some of you know my art page, but for those of you who don't, here's the link: www.facebook.com/ArtofOkan
Again, some of you might now, there's an uprising going on in my country, Turkey. I've been painting about this demonstrations kind of supporting the uprising through my paintings. I've posted two of them here: fav.me/d6axreq
I wrote some information about this uprising in the explanation part of these paintings, you can read them there. For more info visit this wikipedia article: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_pro…
The above mentioned paintings of mine are also selected for an exhibition in Kadıköy, İstanbul. It's called "Aesthetics of Resistance", a voluntary exhibition organised to support the resistance. This is my first time being in an exhibition and it's even better since it's for a good cause
It's great to finally have it. It makes you look more professional
and gives people a more organised way of seeing my works. I want to thank my friend İdris for preparing it for me.
Still more news, I started working on a comic book project as an illustrator. The project is called #direçizgiroman, which is a project like "occupy comics" project: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occupy_C…
Again it's mostly based on the uprising.
So, that's all! I hope you are all happy and healthy
