Welcome to my world of the creative. My drive in theater. My wax museum. My night gallery.
Feel free to stay awhile and thank you for stopping by!
First off, Happy 14th Birthday dA! This journal entry is to help celebrate all that is dA and all that it has afforded so many creative individuals around the world. So, to begin... My journey with dA began in 2006. I had given up on my art for several years prior. I couldn't find any inspiration or camaraderie shortly after graduating from The Art Institute of Seattle
back in 1996. I wanted to belong to something again. To network. I'd wanted to share and create as I did in school. To feel that creative spirit that flows when artists surround each other with ideas and positive energy. It's amazing and I missed it. Then, quite by accident, while slacking at work, I stumbled across dA and immediately joined and started submitting. Even back then, there was so much to see! Art, Lit, Photography, Design! It was all there! I gathered all that I could from my sketchbook and random paintings and put them in my newly founded online gallery and I was happy as a clam! Not only was I able to get comments, critique and advice, I was able to give the same as I'd done back in school. It was an awesome feeling and still is. Through all life trials and tribulations I'm still here, hundreds of friends and quite a few pieces of art later and it's still the best site online for sharing and networking. As time has gone by, all of those original deviations have left my gallery as I've learned my craft. Quite a few experimentations that I'd worked on and submitted have also left my gallery as I've learned from some of the best that dA has to offer. dA allowed me to finally "find my style" through watching the process and creative endeavors of others and for that, I'm very thankful. Below you will see some pieces from my favorites that have enthralled me with their skill and ideas and have really spurred me on to be the artist that I am today. So....with that said, thank you and Happy Birthday dA!
This was such a wonderful take on Patrick from SpongeBob Squarepants, I just had to fave it. The pencil work is wonderful.
This work from my friend O. Davis is the epitome of skill with colored pencils and cheesecake tease. Two of my favorites.
He's such an inspiration to me.
This piece fed my need for gloom the day I saw it. The mood and atmosphere are perfect. I can feel the darkness and the cold. Love it.
The ominous feel to this with the city atop the behemoth, mech dinosaur.... truly amazing.
...and this piece I just found today. How positively original is this!?! It's so creative and has lit up my entire day. I live for dA finds like this.
