A heartfelt hello to everybody here! It's seems such a long time ago that I was really active at this place!!! And I also miss it so much to be around, to view my friends' new art, have conversations, creeate and post my own new art! How on earth could that happen? My last journal was posted last year in June, my last persosnal piece of art was posted in April - and it wasn't even comepletely new, I haven't touched my camera for many months - I didn't take any macro or rose shots this year! It's ages ago that I really checked my inbox for new art on DA, read and commented on any journals or deviations, I am not lurking and hanging around
I won't make a lot of words for what follows. I just share a collection of awesome artworks from various categories with you. Everything in this list is adorable seen from a professional point of view. So don't miss it.
I hope you enjoy!
Many Thanks go to these Deviants

Hi my friends,
I haven't posted a journal for some time. Today I do it because of Lakandiwa (https://www.deviantart.com/lakandiwa) - John Paul 'Lakan' Olivares from the Philippines. He is traditional artist doing amazing spiritual art. He is mostly using metallic gel pens on illustration board. I am so deeply touched that I am doing this art feature for him today.
Enjoy the magic!

today I do a little feature for an artist from Hong Kong. LAIliklik (https://www.deviantart.com/lailiklik) ~LAIliklik (https://www.deviantart.com/lailiklik)
He/she is a tradtional painter with an original drawing style but very little recognition on her art so I am featuring some of her drawings here in my journal. Please flock to her page and give him/her some love! Here we go:
Update April 26 - 50,000th COMMENT GIVEN
Yeah, it finally happened, I reached 50,000 comments!!! :dance: I gave it to Sopheirion (https://www.deviantart.com/sopheirion) who received 100 points just because of it. But he/she wasn't the one who guessed the date right. There are two people who did. So the winners of the 500 points prize are:

Update April 17
When will I make my 50,000th comment? I a
I am not writing a lot of journals anymore because of the lack of time though I am still regularly around. Today I want to remember two of my good DA friends who died recently: AnnaKirsten (https://www.deviantart.com/annakirsten) († Jan 2016) and Nameda (https://www.deviantart.com/nameda). († Apr 2015?) I am still in shock and disbelief about their passing.
Anna was a close friend of mine for the long time. We knew each other since 2006 and we personally met on Christmas 2007 in her home in England. We shared the love for fractal art, photography and cats. She was a very talented, loving and funny lady. She also was the founder of t he successful group Creative-Obsessions (https://www.deviantart.com/creative-obsessions). Fo

Congratulations to me - now it's 10 years ago that I joined DeviantArt. That is a long time. I was a newbie when I started here and I have learned so much since then!!! I wouldn't be were I am if it hadn't been for DA and all the friends and fellow artists over all the years. A lot of things happened, many things have changed.
