Limited Edition Pon&Zi PrintHey everyone,
First off, I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who made it out to my Artist Alley table at WonderCon in Southern California this past weekend. This was the first convention I'd been to in a long time where I was at my booth all by myself, so having people stop even just to say hello made the weekend amazing. I've only got two more conventions scheduled for this year, so if you're in the area, come say hello? I'll be in the Artist Alley at:
FanimeCon in San Jose, CA : May 25-28, 2012
Anime Expo in Los Angeles, CA : June 29-July 2, 2012
Also, I've said a few times that I've been working on a super exciting secret project, but it's finally almost ready to present to you guys. It's going to be something especially time sensitive, so check back here within the next two weeks to see what I've got planned. <3
Lastly, I updated the shop at ponandzi.com with a new limited edition print a few weeks ago, and more than half are already gone! I realized that I'd only updated
I'M BACK!I am finally done with my last final of my last semester of my college life!!!I'M BACK!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been pretty much avoiding dA for the past few months (except occasionally posting a few things) because I didn't want to get distracted from school work by all the awesome things on here but now I can get back to making my webcomics without schoolwork in the way Thank you all for the support during my college years I've been on dA since I was 12 years old and I can hardly believe I'm 21 now. It's been such a pleasure growing with this wonderful community and I look forward to many more years to come!
2012, my body is ready!
Pon&Zi Artbook and PLUSHIES!Pon&Zi Artbook and PLUSHIES!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
[Click the image to be taken to the Kickstarter page!]
To quickly recap, I recently launched a Kickstarter project to fund the printing of the first Pon&Zi art book. We have reached and exceeded the original funding goal of $10,000, and I am now certain to be able to get the book printed! If you haven't been to my Kickstarter page to see what's been happening, please take a look by clicking the graphic above. To thank people for preordering the art book, I've created a list of rewards that are exclusively available through my project, so now may be the only chance to get original Pon&Zi watercolor illustrations, hand-painted resin figures, special edition prints and to get your art book signed. <3
Now that I've got more than enough to get the book printed and especially since there are still three weeks before my project deadline, people have begun to ask what I'll do with the extra money. So I've created a stre
Journals: The Tweaks We ALL WantWell, that didn't entirely go as planned.Journals: The Tweaks We ALL Want3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
There are a few issues with the Journal implementation, but there aren't any issues we can't easily fix. And we got so much great feedback, that we now clearly understand some things we didn't before. The best part is, we're going to get the best of both worlds for Journals. All of the benefits of the deviation system for Journals, with all of the resolutions that were vocalized as concerns.
Monday of next week, we're going to release the following changes so that everyone can SMILE!
When you go to publish a Journal, you'll be able to Submit your Journal to your Profile just as you did before the changes. The Journal will go out to your +Watch list, display on your Journal tab and on your Profile Page (if applicable.) There wouldn't be a +Favorite button unless you Submit to The deviantART Journal.
That's right! You'll also be able to publish to
Pure JoyThis year (2011) for the Holidays I followed Bentley on a great adventure. He'd seen me stressing out all year and he finally put his paw down. I canceled the plans I had originally made. And he made me follow my heart. Even though I had my doubts.. It turns out, Bentley is wise.Pure Joy3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Off we were to Mammoth Mountain, on some last minute plans. The type where you know things are being rushed and so they won't go well. But Bentley had faith. So first he enlisted my Mom, jeanpat because he prefers when she feeds him. She gives him too much in his bowl!
And Viktoria o-KOUKLA-o plays with him in the mornings if I'm still asleep, so she's pretty key to having fun.
And chris keeps the evening games of Settlers of Catan going until the wee hours, so no one interrupts him (Bentley) when he's sleeping!
All I WantAll I want is you.All I Want3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
If I can't have this one,
All hope will be gone.
The light will drain from
The life draining
From my broken heart
You will leave behind,
And I will melt away.
My body will be cursed.
Forced to roam the earth still,
Even though I have
Nothing to live for.
You give me purpose.
You give me meaning,
And you're slowly turning
My tainted wings
Back to a pure white,
Just like yours.
I'll always try and give you
What I can.
I'll always try and make you happy.
And if that means not
Crying if you leave me,
Then so be it.
I'd do anything just to see you smile.
All I want is you.
Please don't crush everything in your path that I lay out.
Because some of those things,
I can't get back.
You are one of a kind.
All I want is to call you mine
Close to Announcing Great ResolutionObviously we don't intend to leave you hanging!Close to Announcing Great Resolution3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Due to halloween some pretty key folks are trick or treating with their kids and stuff this evening so I couldn't publish a really terrific resolution to the Journal issues we've been having until tomorrow. Family comes first folks!
I can say the following with confidence: Everything everyone wants, with the added benefits that come with the deviations platform will be released very soon.
In the meantime, enjoy the really crazy journals showing up in the footer.
Oh, btw, because of the new Journal portal we learned we were having a bit of a spam issue, with a few bots posting to the network mostly to spike their google pagerank. Which is silly because we've set the pages to be ignored by the google spiders... so what these spammers are doing is all for nothing. But we'll root them out within a couple of days as well and ultimately really clean deviantART up.
For the record.... the community is using Journals at a much higher r

I think it's some of the same stuff that attracts you to people or not.
Here's a snapshot of some of the art I like.... is this a frequency that appeals to you? Did you view these and feel a trance coming on?
Or did you just glance over it...
