This year has been an exciting year for me in the blogosphere. Between refocusing and experimenting, my blog is continuing to grow in new directions and offering me new opportunities on the way. As 2012 comes to a close, I’ve decided to highlight 12 of my favorite things that happened this year. Some are big, some are small, but all of them mean so much to me in my endeavors as a blogger and illustrator.
