What year is it???Hey everybody, just a quick little update for you all on my whereabouts (again for anybody who cares, because I know you all do )More Like This
Hopefully you all had an amazing holiday season and i am more than happy to read what you all did (provided it not be a 15pg essay on what you did, because yeah...um i may not get to that...or will I? hmm...)
Anyways here's wats up yo!
1. Sorry I havent posted stuff, it was a long winter break and I had a lot planned, but family stuff got in the way. I also did a really weird social experiment that resulted in me meeting some really amazingly bombastic friends that are so wonderful and made this winter break one of the best EVAH! So shout out to them! I miss them a lot and I cant wait to see them once more! It was a true blessing!
2. Ok this is a weird one, but its something that's been bugging me for a while, so here goes. I am gay, but I will NOT be part of a community that makes one categorize themselves to be able to fit in into said community (i

So many people say to me, "Why do you cry over a dead person that you never met?" and my response everytime is, "He means the world to me and he has helped me through more things than what half of my friends have. I know that I can trust him and he won't disown me." If I could tell you how much you mean to me then I would.
I love and miss you Jimmy and you will be foREVer in my heart. R.I.P James Owen Sullivan
Free/Full Paint Tool SAII have just downloaded this http://www.4shared.com/zip/vRScpB3B/Sai_110.html and I BELIEVE it's full; I don't really know how to check if it isn't. Anyway as of right now it is fabulous and works great and it is completely updated version. You have to make an account at 4shared for it to work- but it's totally easy. There is no email verification or anything so I just used a really old email that I don't check or need anymore... Anyway to download just click on the little blue button and you'll be redirected and you should be able to figure it out from there. I've been looking for a long time for freaking SAI so you guys don't know how happy I am ^ ^More Like This
Oh and after you download DON'T remove the SAI application from the file onto your desktop. For some reason it stops working if you do that- so just create a new shortcut and put that on your desktop. Hope this helped somebody!

Dear Future Self,More Like This
Dear Future Me,
I bet you weren't expecting a letter from your past self, were you?
Well, you probably were, considering we're the same person and
you'd have to know I was writing you a letter since you wrote it in the
past so I guess you know already what's in this letter, right? Do I even
need to write it? If I don't write it… will that set off a chain of events
that lead to the you who won't read this being someone completely different!?
I've watched 'Back to the Future' far too many times.
Well, I'm going to write it. I guess I can't offer you infinite insight
about your future since I'm writing forward as opposed to back, and I
don't know what the future is going to be like, but I want to reiterate
a couple of things for you that might be weathered by time.
Alrighty, for starters:
a) Zombies will always be awesome. Forever and always. Don't lose your love for the genre, buddy.
b) There's always time. When it comes to projects, the less of it you have, t

Previously featured artist *laura-makabresku got many new watchers and page visits.
Since she has no premium membership, I decided to buy her a 3 month premium membership as a tiny gift
She totally deserves it.
This week I'm featuring someone most of us know for his beautiful nature images, enchanted forests and magical flower fields on devianART frontpage (and yes, he deserves it).
