So, those watching me will have had the notice that I've changed my name (I hope, apparently there's still some bugs to work out there). It feels both weird and exciting at the same time; I've been WhiteDragon2393 for nearly 8 years and that's a lot of history. But I've been reluctant to do any art with this name for a while now, because I realised in the past couple of years that it's not what I wanted to be known as when making a name for myself as an artist, and certainly not one I want to sell under. So when the feature came up for community input, I jumped right in to take part in the discussion. But I wasn't expecting it to happen until the end of the year at the earliest, if at all (you'd start to get cynical too after seeing the same copy-pasted non-answer from the staff week after week).
So I was really, really surprised when the announcement popped up in my inbox just before I went to bed last night. And it honestly could not have come at a better time, because I've found an outlet for selling my work in my local town centre and my permanent print account* is feeling sad and neglected because of my reluctance to use it with my old username.
As for my new name? It's actually a name I came up with for a dragon because I feel like they should have names and I ended up liking it so much that I decided it would be my new alias. I still answer to and sign off as Blue though, because quite a few people know me as that and I'm very attached to it (mind you, I have no problem with being called Cal, partly because it's less likely to be followed up with a certain joke).
I feel so psyched right now. The question is, what do I draw first?
See you around
*Speaking of prints, I have one question - why is it that you can view the print store in your own currency, but the actual earnings page and price mark-up is all in dollars? My currency converter is going to be in for one hell of a workout.

I've not posted in HOW long?
As if I needed any more proof that I have zero grasp of the passage of time, I apparently haven't written a journal here in nearly 2 years. *facepalms* In that time, I've graduated from Uni, had a job for six months and am now finding it next to impossible to get another (too old and/or over-qualified, apparently). As I'm two years older and (hopefully) wiser, I figured it was now past the time to clean up the clutter I usually have in my journals and be a bit more to the point. I ought to tidy up my gallery too, now that I think about it. There should also be another Doctor Who Lemming done by the end of November/beginning of December. One
10,000 views - that one kinda snuck up on me.
:bulletred::bulletpurple::bulletblue::bulletred::bulletpurple::bulletblue: Woah, I hit 10,000 and didn't notice. I blame being scatter-brained. I've also just realised I have two requests I never did. o.o;; Whoops?

Been a while since I've done a meme
:bulletred::bulletpurple::bulletblue::bulletred::bulletpurple::bulletblue: Letter Meme Warning: stupidly long journal coming up. Tagged by AngelBless (https://www.deviantart.com/angelbless), and it's marginally more sane. Dear RockyFS: I don't really know how to tell you this, but the mafia wants you. I think I realized it that night in women's clothing and I saw you ignore my best friend. I'm sure you're frostbitten enough to understand that Extreme Home Makeover sucks. I'm returning your memories from the military service to you, but I'll keep your left ear as a memory. You should also know that I get sick when I think of Oprah Winfrey imitations.

Reports of this journal's death have been
:bulletred::bulletpurple::bulletblue::bulletred::bulletpurple::bulletblue: Three reasons why I'm posting a journal: 1) To prove that it's not dead despite the fact it hasn't been touched since November, 2) I have some code to add to show the dA accounts for ImagineFX forum members and 3) I've just given my art blog some purpose by posting my impressions on fanfiction, or to be specific a certain type. Being a bookworm I may as well keep up to speed with all things literature no matter what - or what's passing for it in some cases. And if there's something like a talking cat in it then I'm sold, because there aren't enough of them if you ask
