Slowly Coming Back from 4-year Absence

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 7, 2018, 4:29 PM



As the title states, I have been away from :deviantart: for far too long.
Throughout the last several weeks I have been analyzing the
events that were going in my life. It just hasn't been a thrill ride
and nothing really major has been going on.

I have been working at a different full time job, working long nights
for the last four years. The workplace hasn't really changed except
for the drama. It keeps sneaking up on me in new ways and
about a month ago was just the last straw.

But that is not even the icing on the :cake:!

Towards the end of January has become one the most
significant turning points of my life
For the last month, I have been on a mini sabbatical from
my full-time job.

On January 17th, my mother had a brain aneurysm.
She was released from the hospital after having surgery
on the 1st of February.


She survived it for the most part. However she was on strict bed rest
for about week after her surgery. So I took off from my job
to be around so she wouldn't fall or something worse.

I am so thankful that she is able to wake up
every single day.

So while she's been taking it easy and trying to get more active
I have been getting back to what I have lost over the years - 

MY LOVE FOR DRAWING AND CREATING ART


As I am writing this journal entry, I am slowly getting back into that
rhythm when I started my :deviantart: page almost 9 years ago.
I didn't realize how much I've missed coming to my page. Just browsing
through all the works of art in my groups, the notes, & alerts I get from
people looking at my page.

New people and long time friends browsing through my artwork,
liking and adding them to their favorites. 
I missed you all.

I know I will be starting from scratch trying to build up
my presence on my page. I do not mind it though.
I'm looking forward it.

If anyone reads my entry all the way through, thank you.

AA History - My 28-day art challenge

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 6, 2013, 7:12 PM



A few days ago, I started a drawing challenge on Instagram, celebrating Black History month.
Each day I'll posting a new drawing of a well-known person. And I will post all the names towards the end.

So, it's Day 6 and I have six drawings posted so far.

Happy New Year, 2013!

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 1, 2013, 9:02 PM


This year I am coming back with a vengeance. First of all, I would like to deeply apologize for
my severe lack of activity here on dA. It's 2013, a brand new year. And I am going to make
sure I will log on as much as as I can. That is my resolution.

I have a lot downtime right now so be prepared for new artwork, photography, as well as
other surprises that I will be posting.

Thank you everyone. :) :hug:

How has everyone's new year so far? I hope it went well for most of you and fun was to be had. :headbang:
For me, New Year's was pretty much the same as last year me. Just a relaxed moment at home.
2011 went by very quick and everything is kind of a blur - all I can recall is working like a dog during the summer. :(
I had a nice Thanksgiving and a wonderful Christmas and I got to share it with someone special.
At least the year end on a sweet note - - so let's start 2012 with a bang.

Coming to An End

Fri Nov 25, 2011, 7:39 PM
Profile | Gallery | FNPhotography


About a year ago, I have created a group to showcase a certain side of photography.
:icongadget-photos: is a photo group where you can show your artistic photo skills.
Showing personal electronic "gadgets" such as photos with computers, iPods, cell phones, old radios, cameras - most important things you just cannot live without.
Of course, that is not limited to just those domestic objects - architectural clocks, musical instruments can be accepted as photos.

However the group didn't seem to pick up like I wanted.  So, it is my decision that the group will close at the end of this year.

I really want to thank the members who joined and supported the group throughout the process:

Also, I really want to give a special thanks to :iconzipercoode: for the concept of the group.

Again, thank you all so very much. It was a real experience.

Long Awaited News


Some time in May, I made an announcement that I was going to host another contest.  The news is still true with some changes.  Life has been kicking me in the butt lately and I haven't been able to move forward for a contest during the summer.  So to make it up to all you - watchers, fans, and friends - announcing the 2nd annual deviant contest - End of Summer Jamboree.  The theme - what did you do during the summer? - did you go to concert, go swimming at the beach, have a cookout, play an instrument, paint, draw, just enjoying life. Whatever it is, I want to see all creativity.  The Jamboree will start on August 1st and it will end until the beginning of September.  All the winners will be featured in a news and journal feature and also a permanent place on my profile page to showcase their works of art.  Photography, traditional/digital art, & visual literary works are  accepted.  I will post more details in my next journal.

:woohoo:


Y E S...Ladies and gentlemen here I am coming back with a vengeance. I realized that it has been months since my last journal. So I've decided to come back with a bang to post features, show some new work that I'm going to share....

Hmmm...there's also something else that I'm missing but I can't quite put my finger on it! :)

OHHHHHHHHHHH, YEAAAAAA!  I am going to host another contest and it's going to be a SUMMER Theme since it's quite literally around the corner. I will explain more in depth with my next journal. The medium format is Photography, Digital Paintings and Manipulations. Those will be the main catergories. If anyone wants to enter literature it has to be under Visual Poetry. Like I said there will be more to come soon. :thumbsup: :clap:

has received very positive feedback and I am
happy and proud of my art and I would like to say
thanks to everyone who has faved, commented and
invited me to various groups to share my work.

I have joined this group
:iconvisually-composed:

This group has been arounded for about a year that's for anyone who creates art by twisting smaller elements together and bring life that represents a scene that YOU can see in your head, but are unable to capture it with a camera.

That is what this group is for.
To share images of interest and beauty with each other in this great DeviantART.

:thumb180798858: :thumb180964734: Halloween Story by JoeDiamondD How to Make a MonsterHow to make a monster, you ask?
Well, it's really quite simple.
To start with you need a typical embryo,
Preserved in a jar of mushroom fluids.
In this order, add five drops of lemon juice,
Half a cup of spite,
A tablespoon of jealousy,
Three quarters of dark night.
Remove half the reason,
Siphon all that's light,
Take away the easy road,
And the sense of what is right.
Pour fire down his throat,
To give him extra fight,
And add a nasty aftertaste,
To keep him from clear sight.
Starve him of affection,
Add a thirst for power,
A good helping of bad temper,
So his enemies will cower,
A dollop of mean spirits,
A sprinkle of unfair,
A pinch of no-one cares,
And you have your monster there!
