*blows off dust from account*

Hello.  I'm Dan.  I draw things.  Sometimes for money.  Some of you may remember I used to post here somewhat frequently.  And then everything changed when Facebook , tumblr, twitter, instagram and so on become the place you could just drop a pic and go.  And for awhile, it was awesome.  Instagram, alone, put me in touch with a LOT of people, both new and people I've admired for the longest time.

There's a "but" coming.....Tumblr got scared and banned all nudity....Facebook/Instagram screwed with their posting algorithms to point people to the high-traffic earners and away from the every-day artist or those who may not have a huge following.  Even people with substantial followings have noticed their traffic severely cut.  So perhaps, the social media honeymoon is over.

So maybe this will be a Deviant Art renaissance?  I haven't logged in here for the longest time but there's all the art people who have posted and I didn't have to surf and scroll to find it.  It could be time to look at this place again with fresh eyes.

I'm still elsewhere in other communities too:

CLICK for Instagram  : lots and lots of sketches and work in progress shots

Was just passing through checking out some old friends' pages.  Miss the old group chats and hanging out at Otakon.  Wishing you the best, wherever you are.

Rest in peace Dan, I've the enjoyed immensely the work you've created here and beyond, and I shall lament the loss of such an  inspired creator, you deserved better, you deserved more time, but you're art will live on to inspire others and I hope that legacy would have pleased you!

I met you on here, I figured I should leave you a message here too. I'll miss you, Dan. You have inspired me countless times, actively and passively, and you'll be in my heart always. You are an awesome human being and I hope you are kicking ass no matter where you are.

You were a bright, shining beacon to us all, and while you may have passed on, your legacy will be to inspire other artists to keep reaching and doing their best.  Rest well, good sir.

For those who are not aware, Dan Howard has passed away due to complications from pneumonia.… for some of the details.  You can get more from his Facebook page, which is linked to above in the journal.
