execution 4 love drawn dagger

To my dear audience, I know that this website has been not updated in a while and I sincerely apologize. I am here to announce that certain parts and graphics on this website may look "broken" or "out of place", but rest assured there are good reasons for that, as I am slowly but surely moving to re-design "Dream Infinity" as a whole from the ground up. Everything is being re-invented, new establishment of brand identity and design is being re-imagined. I have been working on a new version of this site for quite sometime, but there has been several set backs due to commercial projects taking up almost all of my working time. But please note that this website is far from dead and a lot of new changes are planned. Although I cannot promise any date in regards to when these changes will surface, you will start seeing additions of new content (primarily tutorial posts!) being added here slowly and I invite you to read them in advance before the new re-structuring takes place. In addition to content changes being made here, I invite you to always check up on my official Facebook page for up to date information on what I am up to, newest work, and the new design. I am excited to present the new changes to the world and I whole heartedly thank you for your patience.
