I have not made a great deal of effort to maintain this deviantart site, but I would like to inform you all that I will be uploading my own personal website on sunday evening.  It will be bug free by monday afternoon.  It will contain some of the old favorites from my gallery here, but will contain mostly new work.  There will be no forum as of yet for contacting or critiquing if I even so choose to do so on that page.  If you wish to offer a critique or opinion please check my "contact" page and message me via the e-mail link provided you there.  

As I said, this website will be 100% effective Monday March 22nd, no later than 3PM.  the address is as follows:   aambergibbs@aisites.com


Please take a look around the site and feel free to e-mail me with your comments and suggestions.  The site is entirely designed, built, uploaded, and maintained by me so any ideas will be helpful.  

Looking forward to speaking to all of you soon.

Amber G.

I have been really busy lately, not much time to post new work, or really create any.  I moved to Charleston a while back and started school down here, so since then I have had zero time to do anything but projects.  I will be updating my work here as soon as the semester ends in december if not sooner. more or less just wanted to let anyone that cares know that I didn't die, I just moved.

Nothing to new with me still, my art has taken a new direction toward the slightly macabre and dark...and thats about it.   More deviations to come, just putting the finishing touches on some works that I really want to look perfect.

Just updating my journal. No new developments in my life really, but art wise I have been asked to do some work for a Record Label here in my City, Also was asked by our fire department to do a commemorative piece of all the things the department stands for and has done. I am very excited about this ^_^ Wish me luck and send me tips if you have any

That and I have been working with my Lawyer to get this idea copyrighted the right way, the first time. ^_^  Anyway, thats whats going on. so anyone that was actually anticipating new work from me...I send my apologies for keeping you waiting.  Hopefully I will be able to upload soon.

first and formost, HAPPY NEW YEAR to all who read my journals, as few as they are.  

Second, I am happy to say that I got my wish, and have been given a brand new camera for christmas. I got a Nikon D50 complete with micro and macro lenses, a printer, and a tripod. ^_^ it is a 6.1 megapixle camera and the memory card i got can hold up to 2 gigs.  ^_^  

Third, in response to this new camera I am takeing all of the crappy pictures out of my gallary, and am upgradeing them to better quality images thereof. SOOO if you see that my general images are down for the moment, please come back later and they should be back up. this renovation so to speak should last the next month or two but hopefully no longer.

Fourth, and final, though not least. I NOW HAVE A PRINT SHOP!!!! there are only a couple peices there now, new works or works that have already been re-done.  Please take a look and buy something if you love me ^_~  


Also, as a further note, ANAMAZEMENT 2007 is comeing up in a few months (to be exact, 4 months and eight days from this journals post date)  and I would like to remind anyone that is attending that I WILL have a booth in artists alley along with Austa, george, and hopefully our beloved TOXIC TOOTHPICK, and non deviantart member Charla(catch the hint), and we would all apriciate it greatly if you would come to check it out, and buy some of our work.   Hopefully by the time Anamazment comes around There will be a magazine worth picking up on my table ^_~ title is a secret, but come by my table, just look for the Lady in the corset hanging on the wall, and have a look around for my magazine and other artwork stuff ^_^

Come have a great time at anamazement with all of us other anime geeks!!!

i ahve posted 3 new peices i hope you will all enjoy, and also, on the subject of my "lady in the corset" the original photographers name was edward stykin, and the photo was taken in 1941 as the nazi's were marching in on paris, it was the last picture taken for paris vogue.  anyway, history lesson aside, i know who he is  now, so i need to contact vogue and get permission to print my recreation.  anyone know where i can get in touch?  anyway, enjoy my new work, and expect more by the end of the week ^_^
