3 Years old- merely a toddler

It occured to me that BBAnime Art is exactly 3 years old this weekend so it's time to reflect on what the site's achieved and where it'll progess in years to come.
The reason for this blog entry is for me to take stock of it all.

With 1000 items on display at this time it seems a lot, although I look at the artwork piled around my feet, balanced on tabletops and filed in storage folders and I'm reminded how I've barely dented the collection.
It's overwhelming and also sad because I think of all the art that's just sitting there neglected, without being represented in the gallery.

Yeah, I keep telling myself that "I'll get round to scanning [such and such]" but it's not feasible to maintain a high level of enthusiasm to the scanning process and to dedicate the time to do so. I'm not depressed about that, I'm pleased that I have other interests and won't make excuses since I stick by my ethos of making sure that every item displyed here is done to a high standard. That's something I'll always do for my own piece of mind because one has to see art in its best state to really appreciate it.

As this site matures, the artwork that gets posted over the years will be worth the wait. In 2010 visitors may shriek "I remember that old series" when I finally get round to displaying Otogi Zoushi, Bible Black or any other contemporary series that I collected at the time of release *LOL*
In one respect I'm glad that the new anime won't have much production artwork so that's less to collect; gives me time to catch up!

This week has been a busy cel week. Received SMJ and Mandarake packages [inc BWA items] and have a Rinkya one on the way. Also scanned the last of my Mezzo Forte cels- a dozen new images, which'll be displayed this coming week.

*Hmmm* I wonder what the theme of the site will be in another 3 years? Perhaps I ought to get planning now! *heh*
