Where did all your art go?

Well, my best friend sent me this on tumblr: atthequillsmercy.tumblr.com/po…

And I LEGIT SAT HERE AND CLEANED OUT MY ACCOUNT.

Will I miss the comments? Yes. Was it a pain in the ass to do this? Yes. Was this really the only reason? Not entirely since in one upgrade, a BUNCH of my scans vanished and that kept me from uploading again. That link about Deviant owning my art was the last straw and I just cleaned house. I don't even draw well enough to have my stuff gacked but I'm not taking the chance.

My account is basically open just to follow artists I'm a fan of and that's it.

I am pretty gosh darn active over at my blog; www.literaryloon.com and I am considering having an art page - WITH WATERMARKS (as if anyone would steal my crappy sketches but you never know) - over there on my blog and since I am scheming to do my own book covers (see my written works here: atthequillsmercy.com/novels.ht… and here: atthequillsmercy.com/short-sto…) there is more art from me coming down the pipe.

Don't get me wrong, it hurt to do this. I started this account in college and here I am 36 years old and I'm shutting it down in a way. It's like salting the earth. It's heartbreaking. But there's a lot of things from my youth I have left behind and have also left me behind. This site is just another on the list.

I probably don't have any watchers left now since I've been away from this site but I am getting back into drawing! No, really. I got some fantastic pencils for my birthday and I can't wait to use them. :) I am saving up for a new computer and scanner and I'm only $100 shy of what I need. Soon, there will be more art posted here.

Do I remember?

1 min read
It's been WAY too long since I've put pencil to sketch paper. I've been just trying to get through every day. I just had someone who I considered a best friend fail the every lovin' shit outta me so after recovering from that, I'm lucky I can write. This friend was also my primary child care so you can imagine how little free time I have lately.

But all is not lost. Soon, I will have a car and be able to drive it which will fee up a TON of time. Public transportation is great but waiting around for trains and busses eats up more time than you can imagine. >_< Once things settle down and I'm selling more books, I hope to have more time to devote to developing my sketching skills.

Till later, all!

Since I've been pretty good about keeping my writing blog updated (here:atthequillsmercy.wordpress.com…) I'm posting the art I've been fussing with here, as well. ^_^

Little by little, I'm filling my notebooks, journals, and sketchbooks. Anything to keep my mind off my life. >_<
