I'm not dead....
So, in spite of popular opinion, I am not actually dead. I understand that I haven't really posted here since 2007, and that you DO NOT do that online these days, and I would like to sincerely apologize to those of you who legitimately worried about me. To try to explain something complicated simply: we'll just go with the simple fact that during my senior year at RISD, I underwent a rather large "course correction," during which I changed my major focus from concept or fantasy illustration to academic and informative illustration (with a focus on natural history) and museum art fabrication. This was precipitated by the rather nasty experie

Wow, Thank You!
I'm so flattered! I didn't actually know that I had a daily dev until I read a friends note on my lj. :) So thanks, Shoomlah. I'm always surprised at the pieces that people favor. If I had chosen one to be a DD, it probably wouldn't have been the Tiger Family, but I appreciate it all the same. Thanks to everyone for all the nice comments! It made my day. Oh, and my hits went over 30k. WOW. O_O Thanks everybody. Much Love, Damalia

PRINTS are now available!!
I set up a print account, due to many requests and also because Balaa got me hooked on having a subscription, and it just expired. SO you can now order high resolution reproductions (and various other goodies) of Elvira's Puppy, In the Canopy, When You're Strange, Mean Girls, PREZ, and Kemsa. This is a bit of an experiment for me, so please place your orders! :) I'd also be interested to hear if anyone wants one of the other pieces offered as a print. I just took a selection of the most popular ones, but if there are any other requested prints, just let me know. Best, Dalla

Ready, set....Update!
Obviously this is the start of another one of my bi-annual updates. Because I'm a big lazy fart I put off updating until I have like 30 pieces to put up, so look for a few more over the next couple days. There's three years worth of murals to post yet and I think I'll put up some selections from my sketchbook as well. Once I'm back up to date with the art, I'll post a new commissions list and some information about my life for the next few months. Or, alternately you can read about all that crap on my livejournal (http://damalia.livejournal.com). I'm also keeping a sort of winter blog documenting my time here in Minnesota for the next couple

Fall Update...
Well now....I've been out for a bit (obviously) getting into the swing of classes again. Things seem well enough, though there's always that one class that causes undue amounts of stress and frustation for me....I can never just have a calm, routine semester. I'm constantly waging my own personal little war against one of my classes. I'm sure I do it to myself. Anyhoo, I'm checking in now to say that commissions are officially closed until next summer. So if you were hoping for something to get done before may; sorry, I'm not your girl. It remains to be seen however if I will be getting to some commissions during the month of January. Maybe,
