Newest Deviations


I’ve been thinking about gradually moving my work off of DA and onto my various other websites. I’ve already shifted my Alex Ze Pirate work to and I’ve moved my deviations that are in storage over to my main site.

Now I’ve got one more feature to shift over and that’s journals. Ideally I would like to just start posting journals on my own website rather than on DA for a number of reasons. The link to the journals is located here (and can also be found on the top left of my main site.

This came at just the right time as my subscription with DA has finally ended and... honestly... I don’t really feel like signing up for premium membership again. I love DA and my success here has been enormously life impacting in many ways, but at the same time I kinda feel like I need to have my own site and my page and my own place, which is what my various websites mean to me.

Do not fret, I won’t be disappearing from DA at all, just that I’ll be focusing more of my energies on my own pages. Art will still be posted here, journals will still be posted here, and I am in no way “leaving” the artistic communities.

Just wanted to give y’all a head’s up.

Feigning illness for sympathy points?  That's pretty low, Andy.
No one is feigning anything, I mentioned I was sick but I didn't go into details specifically BECAUSE I don't want to look like I'm trying to get "sympathy points." That should've been pretty clear in my journal since I was asking what I should do about it.

And please stop block-evading.
