Etsy shop and future wood burnsTHANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS FAV'D AND COMMENTED! Getting a DD has really made my year, I am truly gratefulEtsy shop and future wood burns2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I can't go through and thank everyone individually but I appreciate all of the feedback.
I have so many plans! So many ideas to burn into wood for sale! However, my partner and I run our own business and that has to come before any of my hobbies. As a jeweller I make all sorts of things out of gold, silver, platinum etc etc - you can see everything we make and repair in our shop in Birmingham, on the website and sometimes on my professional blog.
As for the pyrography there are loads of things I'm going to attempt. Wooden bangles, nesting dolls, door signs for sleeping babies, trinket boxes and whatever else I can get my hands on. Everythin
Hey There!Just writing a new journal to say sorry for the absence. Made some major life changes and am just getting everything all sorted out, but should be able to be a little bit more active again! I have no internet at my own house (alas!!!), but I am on quite a bit at my parents house and at :icontakaracheetah:s house. I should be able to upload art at either of those places soon..... and will probably start working on a lot of real media stuff again.Hey There!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will also be working on art and pendants to upload to my etsy shop, so keep checking there if you are interested! http://www.etsy.com/shop/scallywagstudio

Limited Edition Handmade Artist BooksI've gotten a few inquiries about running some edition releases on my books. Assuming I find the most economical way of printing and producing them, I'd be more than happy to offer books for sale.Limited Edition Handmade Artist Books2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Keep in mind every part of these books are made meticulously by hand. I make my own bookcloth the old fashioned way with wheat paste and Japanese rice paper, I cut, score, and hand-sew my signatures, I build and mount the hardcovers. These are archival pieces that would come signed and numbered, with the highest quality digital prints of my illustrations possible.
Would this be something you guys would be interested in? How much would you expect to pay for something like this?
Lastly, which books would you most want to see offered for sale?

Saint Baldrick's Commissions: CLOSEDEDIT:: These are now closed! Thank you soooo much to all that donated! It means a lot!Saint Baldrick's Commissions: CLOSED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So my brother is trying to raise some money to donate to St Baldrick's to go towards fighting childhood cancer.... and I really really want to help him but have no money.
SO, I have decided to open up for Donation Commissions. 100% of the proceeds will go to St Baldrick's.
You can donate HOWEVER much you want to, and you will get a digital picture by me. Just how much detail or if there is color added depends on how much you donate. You will get -something- from me no matter what the amount donated is. Even if its just a dollar.
These are kinda easy going commissions, so there will be a lot of artistic freedom... but you can definitely tell me what you want and I will try to give it to you.
You can either send the money to my paypal: daanzi(at)live.com (unfortunately paypal will take a small percentage out but its definitely an easy way to go)
Or you can donate straight to his page: http://www.stbald

10. Give someone a llama badge
One of the newer and more intriguing features of DeviantART is its badge system, which allows users to give one another all types of badges, some free and some costing real money. The most popular badge is the Llama badge, which costs nothing and has different levels where if you get a certain amount of llamas, your badge changes. Giving a llama badge is great for many reasons. For one, users tend to get llamas back in return, so if you are looking to get more llamas yourself, one of the easiest ways is to give out a lot of them. Another reason is obvious: you are sharing the lla

The Slender Man
In this season of deceits deceptions & witcheries
I am wary of my following message not being received with the full gravity it deserves. It is not my intention to unduly alarm the deviantART community, but... $LaurenKitsune is at this time unaccounted for. All attempts on our part to contact her have failed. It is my hope that she has simply taken a much deserved unscheduled pre-Halloween “vacation” and will be back in online communication soon.
Before going dark, $LaurenKitsune was good enough to write and transmit a report on the Slender Man phenomenon sweeping the Internet. That report is published here fo
CripplePutting in the disclaimer that I'm usually not that person on the internet who throws their opinion out this directly. It's preachy and what the hell kind of authority do I have anyway? However:Cripple1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So the word "cripple."
I'm all for joking about most things. I hate the idea of censoring anyone, and I get that popular media has made this a fun and "edgy" thing to laugh off. But guys, using this as a noun or a general descriptor, even the sole property of a person? It's really not ok.
Jokes are funny until they become actually detrimental. Peoples with disabilities already struggle enough with being seen as real, whole individuals deserving the same level of basic human respect and dignity (even within the medical community.) Disability is not an identity, not the only characteristic of a person worth seeing, and it does not make someone any less human. So to joke like this, to laugh about "the cripple on Degrassi" or to refer to anyone with so much as a walker as a "cripple" is, in my book

But this doesn't mean that I'm not paying attention to other genres of art here on deviantART. That is why I like the idea of "Celebrating Diversity".
