I'm a media geek by inclination and profession, and a "second time around, going back to school at THIS AGE" college student. I like to point my camera at things every once in a while, play World of Warcraft and do my homework....and play with Photoshop and Illustrator as I work through my classes. I'm a Graphic Design major, this time around the merry-go-round. I'm also one of the staff members for the fabulous fan art group,
I was recently able to add "accredited artist" to my list of personal adjectives and labels, when I did a book cover design for Troy Rau's book, Cane....This degree, plus a modicum of geekiness, spiced with a healthy dose of eccentricity will add up to "well-rounded professional graphic artist" someday... in the interim, I am accepting freelance commissions for cover art, logo designs, and online tile & GIF promo designs, through www.pixiesandpixels.com.
If you'd like to know more, message me here on dA, and we'll work something up for you.
To the folks who have faved any of my art - given me llamas - and/or left nice comments on my art, THANKS! I admit, though, that I don't reply back to most of these actions...not because I don't care or appreciate it - BECAUSE I DO - but as a full time student, who works part time & accepts graphic design commissions as her second part time job & who likes to get a few hours sleep every few days or so, I spend my time on dA posting art - working within MPrUs, looking at other peoples' amazing art, faving said amazing art, and commenting on said amazing art, I don't often have time to post replies. So know that I thank you & appreciate it, greatly. And if, by chance, I get another DD, someday, and you're behind the nomination, I really, really, really appreciate it! LOL
Oh, and now...a wee bit of "fine print":STOCK USE RULES:
For the odd bit of stock I post to my gallery now and again, you may use it, for personal projects, without asking me about it. HOWEVER....you must
1) Fave the piece
2) provide a link back to my profile
, here on dA, and give me full credit for the stock image as FairyFindings and/or Justine Greene. If you post the piece off site (see below), you must in some way incorporate credit for my stock, by either listing the web link back to my profile on dA and/or my websites www.geekgyrlfriday.com/
after contacting me (see below).
It must be art - you may not load it as your own with just a color change, or the application of a filter or three in PS with no manipulations or obvious artistic individuality - use it as an element to create your own masterpiece. If I don't feel you've significantly altered my image(s), I reserve the right to inform you & ask you to make corrections and/or take the piece down from dA and anywhere else you may have used/posted it.
You may also use my stock in artwork for your prints here on dA without asking permission, first.To use any of my stock off dA
- for any reason, be it personal or commercial - you MUST
note me here on dA, first, to ask for permission and set up the manner of use.
Just like everything else in this world (except Death & taxes), my stock rules are subject to change without warning....although, now, I guess you have been warned about the potential for a lack of warning, so that's something, right?
And this isn't required, but it's highly appreciated....Feel free to help feed this starving art student, by donating a little something to my PayPal account if/when you use my stock images, or make other arrangements with me to use on of my pieces not specifically listed as "stock".Do a good deed, today, DONATE!
