For those who didn't know I was gone, a couple of weeks ago, my account was hacked with disgusting images and anti-George Floyd memes. First off, I'm so very sorry that any of you all had to see these awful things in your feed! I didn't even see them before my account was perma-banned. Generous fans contacted me afterwards to let me know of the incident so I could contact support about the issue.


Thankfully, DeviantART has helped me to restore my account, though I have sadly lost all of my Watchers and my entire Watchlist, as well as all of my stash. It's a bit of a blow and a hard lesson to secure my accounts better (which I am now doing with hash generated passwords from Bit Warden).


Losing my account made me remember how much in that 20+ years since I first joined as a wee high school student all the good memories and life-long friends I made here, as well as how dA helped me grow as a young artist. I'm glad to be back so I can keep participating when I can, despite the fact life keeps me able to participate here as much I used to!


DA has generously offered a one year sub to help with the sting of this incident (thank you!). Now I just need to rebuild my list, so if you like my work here, don't forget to re-add me to your devwatches! I'll try to re-watch as many folks as I can remember, but even my Favourites were nuked, so it's all from memory right now (which simply won't cover how many folks I've gathered in 20 years).


So drop me a line via Notes or drop a comment on this journal if we've been mutuals on here. I want to make sure I rewatch everyone!


Glad to be back! I'm taking this as a chance to tidy my account and make the best of things.
