1. Hi Nikki ! Thank you for taking the time to do this interview. Could you please introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi! I'm Νίκη, in my native language. (:
I was born in Athens, Greece, but lived my childhood years in different cities around the country..until my parents thought that maybe changing five schools in eight years was enough for me, and so they transplanted me back to Athens. Little did they know that the seeds of continuous moving were, by then, blossoming in this nomadic heart. After leaving my country years ago to study

New Sta.sh Writer Look
Sta.sh Writer has a brand new look! In the original design, the look that you were presented with did not match the published version of the Journal. The new look is more consistent and also includes the title field in the default skin allowing you to title your Journal as you write it. Previously, you had to title your Journal after you were done writing it.

Yes hello hi it is me againLong time no see guys~! I am so very sorry for being so dead on here, so much stuff happened while I was away, but the gist of it is that I want to come back on DeviantART and start posting art again.Yes hello hi it is me again1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The reminder of this post is purely my personal story, as I felt I owe you an explanation for my absence, at the very least. So feel free to indulge in the going-ons of my life since I went into hiding.
During the latter half of last year, I was starting to lose my vision for my art. Why was I making art, for whom, for what reason...all these questions started to interfere with my drawings, and for a while, making art indeed felt like a chore. An obligation. A job. And that wasn't a good feeling.
I was overwhelmed with pressure to produce more art, be it for myself, for my watchers here, for whatever. The point is, it was causing so much unnecessary stress that I didn't need nor deserve.
So I went on self-imposed exile since late July, trying to find and rediscover what art meant for me.

for the simple reason..that i needed a dose of the -not-taking-things-that-seriously- approach..
.his work is visually clever..
..i think i'm using too many adjectives..
..better show what he, himself..
..has famously said..
..i don't think he does..
..or did he?..in 1970 he famously burnt everything he ever made..
..from the mouth of the artist:
“For some reason, the idea of absence, of leaving things out, has been very important in my work.”
“I used to wake up sometimes in a sweat, and tell myself I was just making trinkets for rich people.”
“I really like being alone,”
..and..when asked if he has figured out what art is, his response:
“Not . . . a . . . clue.”

Introducing Commissions on deviantART
We've launched our new Commissions widget to everyone, enabling artists to generate real earnings through custom creations. Artists can list their commission availability through the widget on their profile, clients can then request commissions from them, and once the artist accepts, they receive payment which then shows up as profit on their My Earnings page.

And YOU CatCouch ...Questioning me! Saying I didn't have one. Well here it is, and it (literally) has your name on it. I even wrote your name in red to show I mean business.
For those who don't know. It's a missile...Sort of. Okay, it looks more like a rocket, but I assure you, it will do the same thing as a missile.
BY THE WAY!! It's CatCouch 's birthday coming up on the 11th of March so don't forget to wish him a happy birthday and give him cake (before I launch my missile of awesome power and destruction)!
Okay, back to the comic...
P.S. is there anyone here that listens to Night Vale? They are hilarious!

Artists on Writers - No. 2, Charles BukowskiArtists on Writers - No. 2, Charles Bukowski2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Issue No. 2|Archives
If the severely acne-scarred face and coarse exterior brought on by his alcoholic and depressed life was the book cover of his being, then Charles was the ultimate book that could not be judged by its cover.
The exquisite collection that was this everyman artist’s art consisted of thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels—mostly all wrenchingly autobiographical, mostly all about moments of epiphany and grace in an otherwise miserable and unhappy existence. The perfect explication of the common man's deepest truth; it's not easy to be here.
Unvarnished and brutal blunt force trauma underlined with hope, beauty, longing, and love.
Therein lies the power of his poet

I have some tips from personal experience, as well as online references and advice from fellow artists that will help with your sales.

Before we get into 'the meat' of things your very first step is Believe in yourself. Be confident about the accomplishments you've made. If your contemplating selling anything then you have to know you're good at what you do. Let that be your mantra as an artist.
