I've not been very active in the last couple years on here due to declining spinal issues.  I'm having surgery on Monday, hopefully this will be the last one for a very long time!!!! 

So maybe after I have the surgery my pain will be down (hopefully gone) enough to churn some new work out!! I've sketched things here and there but nothing solid unfortunately. 

Ill update Monday night to let everyone know I'm ok!! 

Thanks to all of y'all who still visit my page and enjoy my artwork despite my inability to offer new works right now!!! 

I appreciate every one of y'all!!!

I am a fan artist of most subcultures, but I mainly draw from books and anime. This Deviant account is for my fanart and a lil' bit of my photography.

Hey!! I thought you would absolutely adore this theme:…
It is about a dryad living in a willow and a young man who's fallen in love with her but she refuses him.  
I thought it might be a great inspiration for your art. :)

P.S. You're awesome! Never stop drawing! *_*

I was taking a nostalgic trek through my old faves and realized how much I missed your art/interacting with you. Hope your surgery went well, and funny fail!story: I was totally in Mobile for an... extended period of time a little over a year ago and totally should have said hello.

Hope all is well and that you're back on the art track soon!

Ha! You turd!  You should've gotten in touch with me!  We could've hung out on the beach and drank some daiquiri's!!  And talked nerd stuff, of course.  :D  I miss you, and how involved I used to be on this site... and I hate that Real Life has been fighting me tooth and nail against my getting artwork finished.  Between family/kids, health issues, work, and the worst effing artist block I've ever had, I get like, 2 pieces finished a year.  It sucks. :/ 
   I hope all is well with your life.  It's great to hear from you! What fandoms are you immersed in now?  I'm completely and hopelessly obsessed with Doctor Who, and David Tennant in general.  I got to meet him back in March!  He said my name in his Scottish brogue and I thought I was gonna melt.  Or jump him.  But I had my kids with me and so I thought of the children.  Sadly. Lol.

 Stay in touch and if you ever head my way again, hollaaaaa at me!

Oh, ladyfriend, that would have been awesome. I'm seriously kicking myself for not getting a hold of you. If I'm ever around those parts again, I will wave flags and fire flares and send smoke signals.

Real life is the pits when it comes to wanting to nerd out, huh? But it sounds like you're living a pretty fulfilling life, though, so I guess it's not all bad.  c: I'm back over in Japan again for a couple of years, so my friends joke that I'm basically living out my own anime. Can't quite disagree with that; life is an adventure. Work sucks, though.

As far as fandoms go, I can only seem to find time to watch those short, one-season anime (although I'm a slut for some BBC Sherlock). Kill-la-Kill, Attack on Titan, a revival of interest in Samurai Champloo (OT3 at its finest), and then basically kicking it in all my old fandoms. I recently got into One Piece, though. Never held a flame for me, but my boyfriend made me watch it and now I think it's adorable. I got him hopelessly obsessed with Once Upon a Time, though, so all's fair in love and war. I still read Bleach, but only because Grimmjow is back. I pretty much hate everything else about it.

Uhm, speaking of Bleach, I sort of wrote a fanfic. That's based off that GrimmHime fanart you did ages ago. The chapters are even titled after NIN lyrics from "We're in this Together Now". You're even mentioned in the A/N because, well, inspiration and all that. *bites lip* eheheheheheheh...

Keep in touch!!!  xoxo

Do you have tumblr? So I can reblog your art. If not, would it be okay for me to post your art with the right credit on my Malec one?
kara-lija Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Share away! :) I do have a tumblr: but I'm not on it very much ^_^;

Would you consider making some art for MalecWeek. You can read about it here: magnusbane-aleclightwood.tumbl…

I'm organising it and last year was a lot of fun. Your art is very beautiful and I'm sure it would make a lot of shipper happy if you would participate. 
If you are not to busy of course and if you would like too, obviously. 

Nothing is mandaroty, but I just thought I'd ask :-)
