Hey there my friends..... I just wanted to reach out and say hello. It seems that so very many of the people I've met on dA this last 10+ years since I joined the community, have gone by the way side. Too many talented artists that are sadly no longer here and some that I'm sure have passed away unfortunately. It's a bit sad sometimes, to think of all the really good times I've had on this site, it's all gone by way too quickly. Anyway.....I just wanted to say that I'm still here! ...after all this time and that i value each and every person I've met on dA. Many of you have gotten me through some very tough times, whether you knew it or not. I will continue to post some older pieces but the new work will have to wait as I just don't have it in me to bring the ideas that I have to fruition. Feel free to say hello if you want to. I may not get back to you right away but I appreciate it nonetheless.

Take care and be good to each other...

Sincerely,
Tony
Myself and my family have been living down in the homeless Rabbit hole for a very long time. My wife's health is questionable, my daughter's general mood, dreary and tired. We're all tired. After dealing with no home, poor health and financial issues for over 2 years now.....we're all exhausted. I can see some light at the end of this nightmarish tunnel. A possible home, transportation and maybe a new job that would let me take care of my family. I pray, pray, pray to God to let this happen and for all this to end. Some good thoughts are all I ask. We just need to make it a few more weeks and hopefully we can wake up from this bad dream. 
 
Thank you,
God bless...
Despite personal tragedies these last two years, I do plan to get back to my previous working intensity. So much to do and putting off the creative process I think is actually killing me. Forcing the process is the way of things for an artist sometimes. Creative seclusion can go on only so long and two years is long enough. On to the next scene in my creative life.....it just may be the best series of work you may ever see from me before I die.

Thanks for watching and reading...

Sincerely,
Tony

London isn't the only place werewolves call home.


...is now available on Amazon for only $2.99! The beginning of my first novel! Go check it out! Sample the first few pages! 
Buy it and review!!!  Cold Awakening Part 2: Butterflies and Werewolves, is due out soon!

www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZZ3Z9V2/r… <-- Amazon link!

   Cold Awakening Part 1, takes us to the frozen Seattle Winter of 1996. Most of the places, the people and things that happen in this story are based on my own real life experiences and those lives that crossed my path. Little did I know that my years spent in downtown Seattle in the early to mid 1990's would culminate into this tale that literally just starting pouring out of me back in 2010. My decision to split this into parts 1 and 2, at least for the first stretch of this telling, is based on how episodes of stories in decades past were published in magazines or newspapers once or twice a month, until the public were able to get to the juicy ending they'd been waiting for. It is written into separate parts similar to diary / screenplay format as I hope to pursue this being brought to any size screen I can. Part 2 is nearing completion and it will be available soon. I hope you all enjoy this introduction to the world of Billy and Trixie, that until now, has only existed in the dark recesses of my wandering mind. Enjoy.
Just a little update. Several of you have asked how I and my family were doing considering what has become of us this year. Still surviving, though I am separated from them by over 3,000 miles and have no idea as to when I'll see them again, We're taking things one day at a time. 

As far as new art. This has also been asked of me. It's been almost a year since my last piece, "To Miss a Vampire". I honestly haven't had it in me to create new art or continue with my novel in progress, "Cold Awakening". Stress and worry have robbed me blind, leaving my creativity homeless as well. Little spurts of inspiration here and there, but nothing overpowering me to start a new piece, but I'm going to try again, if for nothing else than to relieve the strain of daily life. I hope to have something up soon.

Thank you all again for your kind words and generosity, it's sincerely appreciated.

God bless,
Tony

Art is good medicine...

Fri Mar 27, 2015, 6:47 AM
As it stands now, this may be the longest I've gone without creating, finishing and submitting a piece of art. Not since July 18, 2014. Roughly 9 months give or take, I'm too tired to figure out the exact days or really care about it. You get the gist. I don't think this is a good thing at all. Despite personal hell with family health, hospitals, multiple Dr. apps., I need to keep going. I've so many pieces started but just haven't been able to concentrate......but that needs to end. So, with that said...I'm getting back on track, not fast and furious, but starting slowly on another piece. Thanks for the support for all these months, it's really appreciated.

Please see and feel free to share my GoFundMe link below.

Thank you

Update 0315

Mon Mar 23, 2015, 6:35 AM
As of the moment, all projects are on hold indefinitely. Various things have led to my family and I living a nightmare right now with no end in sight. My apologies for those that have inquired about work. I don't have it in me. More later.

Thank you,
Tony

My family is in desperate need...

Mon Jan 5, 2015, 6:44 AM
My family and I are in need of any help due to my wife's health issues. In June she had to be rushed to the hospital for an emergency blood transfusion, without which she would've died. Since then she has been unable to work. We face loss of power, eviction and are currently not able to afford much in the way of groceries. Even $1 will help. Please share our GoFundMe link if you're not able to donate. Thank you so much for reading this.

Welcome to my humble artist's corner online. Currently I'm re-inventing the wheel concerning the retail aspect and marketing of my art. More info to follow soon. Thank you!
You may have noticed that my page is a bit dismantled, there is no recent art nor journal entries. I've just come to a point where I don't have the energy to keep up right now. As stated.....break time.
I'm taking a break. Thanks for stopping by.

I just wanted to thank everyone who's faved and commented on my work this last couple weeks. I've been dealing with a family crisis and haven't really had the time to thank everyone personally. Please understand that I'm not ignoring anyone, I'm just overwhelmed at the moment. So, thank you for your understanding and thank you so much for your continued kindness and support and hellos. ;) It's sincerely appreciated!

My deviantArt Story!

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! :D :cake: :clap: :hug:
Patrick Star Pencil Drawing by AtomiccircuS
This was such a wonderful take on Patrick from SpongeBob Squarepants, I just had to fave it. The pencil work is wonderful. :)
General Hospi-Tale by odavis
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.
Paper Boat by Megan-Arts
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.
City by AlexandrOpara
The ominous feel to this with the city atop the behemoth, mech dinosaur.... truly amazing. 
Tiger hand painting by larahawker
...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. ;)

A moment of clarity comes when you get a little older in life. While at 48 I don't really feel that old, life has had it's physical and emotional challenges in recent years. I've also seen a great deal more illness and death among family and friends than I care to dwell on in this last decade. For whatever undisclosed reasons prompted me to write this journal entry, I just wanted to relay some thoughts. Be kind to each other. Don't stress on the small things. Try not to stay angry for any reason and take advantage of the time you've been given on this Earth. Things will change, people will fall away from you and vulnerability will set in. Slowly....but it will. If you love someone...tell them. If you want to learn something...go do it. Take the chances you've been afraid to take, because one day...decades down the road, it will be too late to do those things.

I know all too well.

~ Tony

I've noticed many profiles over the years of long time deviants that have hundreds of thousands to millions of page views along with thousands of watchers, yet it seems that they watch very few other artists in contrast to the vast numbers that watch them. Plus, giving very few comments compared to the number they receive.

Is it just me, or does that seem narcissistic, lazy and uninterested? That they could care less about encouraging and enjoying others and their art? An example of which I speak is a profile that I came across that had at least 15,000 watchers and they only watch 40 or 50 people. That's not right. In my humble opinion.

End rant. :(
