Well, this is the first time in a long while that I have logged in to DA. I basically stopped coming here when my artistic brain was shutting down. There were other things that needed attention in life and I am happy to say that lately I feel a lot more creative. I may get painting again? I live in another country now (Japan) and spaces and supplies are not quite what I am used to so my style will likely evolve if I resume. I take photos but use Picasa and don't have the energy to upload separately to multiple accounts, so if I make or paint something I will ad it but dont expect too many photos. I just dont feel attached to DA after it was overrun by furry and fan-art for anime. Once in a while someone links an artist's page to outside site and I get the sense that still, under all the slurry of teenage creative outletting, there is good art being published here. I will check back in soon I think.
