Some of you have been wondering what has happened to me. Well I'm still around and visiting once in a while. My health has been on an even keel but not at the level I like. The creative spirit is still there but the physical body is so weak. And having to deal with so much going on in my life has taken a lot of free time away from me. I still get requests to do art but I really don't want to do them. I feel like I want to explore more of the art and ideas I want to do. I am moving away from doing analog (pencil and ink on paper) and more toward digital art since some new software programs have appeared making some artistic possibilities exciting. My home situation has changed a lot in the past year. The old house our family occupied for many years has finally reached it's end. The ceiling has collapsed in places as well as the floor. Also the electrical wiring has gone out in some parts of the house along with the plumbing. So we had to buy a large house trailer to place on

I still think of him every year. Especially on the day of his birth. The world lost a very talented person when he passed.

The Big 66

1 min read
I don't visit as often since my life is busy with many things such as maintaining my health. But I will come by as often as I can. Well it's my 66th birthday and I would like to thank all those who have left birthday wishes here. What can I say, being alive 66 years is not much different than 60 or 50 years. But still one slowly grows as a person and can look back on the past with some regrets. But I come to the point where it is history long gone and I can only hope look forward to better things. So to all those who follow me here I hope your future is bright and joyful.

I wish to warn you that a user named roselover200310 is spamming the comments sections of your art and completely missing the point of the jokes you made. You may wish to block him.

Hey, just a reminder, am gonna unwatch your profile because there are bullies who keep going into my stuff and wouldn't leave it alone. So don't feel like that not only am unwatchable you doesn't mean I don't wanna be your friend anymore, am only unwatching because a certain bully who is a another bully fan by the name dreamerstuidos and the bully named fractal-silk is spreading a demonatizing rants about my issue, which is why I want to un watch you because I don't expect that bully fractal-silk coming to u you. I've lost too many friends so this is why am gonna unwatch because am sick and tired of fractal-silk going everywhere on my page. Also another reason why because am deactivating my deviantart account soon because of bullies looking into my stuff. So I hope u have discord or Instagram.

Sorry to hear about your troubles with bullies. I'm not on discord or Instagram but I do have a Twitter which is not very active since I recently joined.

Do u have any other contactable social medias or an email to keep in touch on?

I'm not big on social media. I do have an email:

By the way, When are you going back to do some more art?

Because some of us haven't seen you do some artwork, Since you left DeviantArt in a while.

Just posted a new journal.
