Perdóname, pero estoy perdido en sus ojos llenos de lágrimas, un mar de lamentos separándome de ti, pero atravesaré la alta mar por su abrazo de calma si me buscaría las mágicas palabras que dirían: “lo siento, mamá, por todos mis pecados, incluso la crimen de olvidando su amor”.

Your waves crash outside my window and all I can do is stare in awe at how vast your expanse can be. And in the deepest reaches of the sea, I sit here, staring out a window and I ask myself: "What if, instead of running along you I’m running instead toward you"? I’d develop a greater appreciation for the depths you’d reach the shore if only I could run across the vast expanse that is you.

My Bio

Home is where the heart is. Los Angeles is home, but the Philippines is always in the heart.

I'm DeviantArt's Community Campaign Manager, so my job is to be our community's best friend. I certainly look forward to trying! :)

I speak English, Tagalog/Filipino, Spanish, Polish, Mandarin Chinese, some French, some Hebrew and basic Japanese, so try me. I may speak your language, and I may be inspired to learn yours if I don't know it yet. :D

It's done! If you submitted a card to the Holiday Card Project, you should've received a Core Membership from us. Check out where your cards went this time around! :D

Thursday Prompt: Do Nothing
Good afternoon, Core Members, and we're back with a new Thursday Prompt! In last week's challenge, "Head Start", we asked you to share with us your goals for the coming year. It was amazing to see so many deviants aiming high for 2020, and we're glad we got to read your entries. We wish you all the best of luck in achieving your goals for the year! With that in mind, here are your winners! My main artistic goal for this year is getting back to art, because unfortunately last year I didn't have enough motivation to draw and paint.My goal is to create for the joy of creating.I'm going to design my own tarot cards. Pretty exciting! But also da

akiestar, hello! I would like to take part in the holiday card project this year.
Is it possible that I could take a photo of the card and upload that to DeviantArt?
If so, I’ve used a scanner before (with an immense amount of help, cuz I don’t know how scanners work) for drawings, but how does posting a photo work?
akiestarHobbyist Photographer
Sorry, DaSnackDatSmilesBack, but merely uploading your card to DeviantArt doesn't count. You need to send in a physical card. If you're having difficulty doing that, groups like Holiday-Card-Helpers can help! :)

Hello there! Sorry if maybe I shouldn't address the next matter to you, but you seem like one of the most reasonable persons out there that actually will listen.
People have had an issue for years with a certain user that trace people's (from almost 130 users) artworks from all kind of sites, including DeviantArt. This user has 6 DMCA's already but hasn't been banned yet. This user just sits there like "ah see, I'll be here forever and will trace forever, you can't stop me' even though this person themselves is a adult. Other DA staff did nothing about this. I will show you journals on this matter, since this person is tracing on this site for almost 11 years. I don't know if anyone else would really listen or understand this matter. I know that doing journals to 'call out' this person isn't the best way, but this is where it has been led to since no one took action against this person.
Please, please try and take action on this person, or bring this matter up to other staff members that you consider they will REALLY care.
Also please take the time to read some of the journals, as some of them show the response of other da staff regarding this situation. (eg : www.deviantart.com/fireflea-sa…)

I'm sorry if I addressed this to the wrong person or if I shouldn't address it at all, but it got so out of hand... I, myself, don't feel safe to post my art on this site anymore because no one would take action if someone steals and traces over my art... Many users don't feel safe here anymore because of how most of the staff respond about this matters..
