Sorry!I've not been very active lately, I've had a huge art block and what art I do manage I feel too self-conscious about to actually post ;-;
I do post a bit more of it on tumblr, so if you'd like to know my tumblr send a note.
I'll try to post a bit more but I'm still not in a great place right now.

Some questions that are bothersome have been removed.
1. First thing's first. What's your name?
Zin! If you think you know another name you're probably wrong.
2. How about your age?
Started to get a lil uncomfy about this but if that concerns you, send a note
there isn't one that applies well enough
January the 19th
When last checked it was just over 1.6m
7. Zodiac sign?
Capricorn, not that that even means anything
Honestly there's too much and tiredness is overwhelming.
Personal qualitative section.
1. Eye colour?
Sorry lmaoI had a tantrum and deleted a bunch of art a little while ago. I've got the pieces saved to my computer, so I can probably put them back, but ... idk. I'm on here less and less anyway, you should probably follow my tumblr instead if you can. Sometimes I post art there.
1. Describe your desk in your bedroom. What's on it? What's under it?
I don't have a desk in my bedroom.
2. Describe what you're wearing right now. Do you like it? If not, what do you wish you were wearing?
I wearing a onesie that's either a polar bear or a sheep. Also I have a singlet underneath it and some fuzzy blue socks. It's warm, so it's good. I have no real reason to wish to wear anything else.
3. What's one fine arts skill you wish you could master?
I wish I could write goddamnit.
4. Describe the most delicious meal you can think of.
I'm not really a foodie, so probably schnitzel and mash.
5. Close your eyes and imagine yourself standing in the greatest place in the world. What are you surrounded by? Who's with you?
I honestly don't think I know where the greatest place in the world would be.
6. Describe your fantasy soulmate. Do you have a racial preference? How would you meet him/her?
"Racial preference" is bul
READING STREAM!STREAMING OVER, and I'm going to read some short stories. The books containing these are:
Poems to Read to Young AustraliansThe Complete Illustrated Stories of Hans Christian AndersonStories Not for the Nervous Part OneThe Children’s Golden Treasure BookThe Children’s Treasury of Literature in ColourThe Complete Illustrated Stories of the Brothers GrimmThe Dragon BookAlso I might read creepypastas and nosleep stories, so if you have any favourites among those then link them to me and I'll give it a shot!
Once a few people are in attendance we'll have a vote! I'll be streaming for several hours, maybe even all day if it goes well, so don't worry if you're late!
I hope to see you there!
Happy summer!Or winter, for those of you in the northern hemisphere.
This isn't really for you up there though.
It's set to be pretty hot down here this summer, so make sure to take care of yourselves. It's mostly common-sense stuff, and if you've been an Aussie citizen for long enough, you probably know all of these.
Do yourself a few favours:
If you don't have a pool yourself and are comfy swimming in private pools, find a friend with one. They can't all be snobbish assholes. Rinse out your bathers once you're out of themThere is no such thing as a summer body! Don't put your face too close to electric fansDrink water! Ice cubes and frozen grapes are good too, but aren't replacements.Try to avoid wearing too much black when you're outDon't lock kids or pets in cars! They could die!Remember that not everyone at barbecues will eat t
Tearing up a littleI am pretty much in tears.
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A MONTH I HAD BOTH THE INSPIRATION AND THE MOTIVATION FOR ART. I had them.
I started a 50x50 canvas up, intending to make another avatar for myself. I then got distracted with the blues and started making an ocean picture instead.
It was a breeze. The process came to me so quickly, the strokes so smoothly, the colours so easily. I had the proportions downpat, the physics intact, the lighting figured out.
I was 15-20 minutes into it and I thought I'd be done in just a few more, no need to save. I WAS WRONG.
Mum tried to turn on the exhaust fans for the kitchen, and instead cut off the power to the computer.
I LOST IT!
So yeah I'm not ashamed to say that I am on the verge of tears because I might not be able to recreate it ...
Well That failedMy last journal was about trying to write more. I wrote one piece, helped a friend edit their piece, and that's all I've done.
BEWARE OF THE VENT BELOW
I can't even draw. I've submitted 4 things in a fortnight and I usually try to submit something every three days, but I can't do that apparently.
I feel like I want to do things but I don't know what I want to do or how to get motivated to do it.
I've been talking to some people on a stream and I mentioned that I can't imagine looking back on that art and thinking it's crap. Apparently that was the wrong thing to say.
We then discussed how apparently I'm obsessing over the artist (I don't really obsess over things), and how I'll never get good if I don't keep practicing.
I know that there aren't art shortcuts. I know that I have to do it to get better at it, so it makes me feel worse that I don't have the motivation.
I feel like I won't achieve anything because I can't get motivated for even basic stuff. I'm surprised I've been m
NaNoWriMo inspiredOkay so despite it saying National, it is an international thing. A thing that I will not be participating in this month. I kind of want to, but maybe later.
However it has inspired me to do some writing.
I'm thinking maybe I try to do at least 5 written pieces a week all month? What do you guys reckon? Should I try for something harder, or not push myself that much?
Also for those who don't know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. Try these: http://nanowrimo.org/ and http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/UsefulNotes/NaNoWriMo

5000 hours completed!! And July Commissions!Celebrating the 5000 hours doing logos!
They say you need 10,000 hours to master something. Well, I'm half a master then. After 5 years, 8 months, 5 days, and more than 600 logos, I finally reached half way of my goal. I still have a long way to go but hopefully, before I'm 40, I will be a true master of what I love to do.
Important to Commissioners
Hi everyone! To all my commissioners, please tell me if you wish to be contacted here, your email or some other way you feel it's more comfortable. I'm still awaiting an answer for many design approaches and that is delaying the work schedule. If there are sudden changes like leaving on vacations or need to postpone the project please feel free to tell me.
Remember that if I don't get an answer after 7 days I send the last design approach I consider the project abandoned.
My commissions are always open, I just a

Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and
