Love is a Promise, Love is a Souvenir...
once given never forgotten, never let it disappear ~John Lennon :heart:
I remember my first day in freshman English and our assignment was to define love.  I don't remember what I wrote, but my definition through the years since then has broadened to encompass much more than what an eighteen-year-old's conception could ever possibly be.  Our understanding of such an elusive thing grows and broadens with age and maturity... but only if we allow it and many don't.  One simple way is to simply hold back with our opinions and not feel compelled to place a damper on how someone else expresses themselves with their art, and more broadly, the very way they choose how to thrive.  How you define it might, and probably does, differ from mine, but true love to me is the unconditional act of allowing ourselves and others to thrive, a small yet difficult act, but with huge rewards.
Valentine's Day shouldn't be just a day for lovers; i

... And now it's December. Crazy!

Hi, deviantArt. Hi, friends. I recently moved cross-country, East to West coast, and am slowly adjusting and trying to finally get through this transitional stage where I figure out what's next. But I haven't forgotten about you.

Here's a bit of (hopefully) exciting news: there are five Dexter bats up for adoption in my Etsy shop. Please give them a good home if you can, while you can! I'm really not sure when I'll have more to offer, and for that I'm sorry.

More news: my cerberus design that won a round of Open Squish a while back is now available to buy on the Squishable website. It's super soft and huggable!

As always, thank you for the continued interest, support, and encouragement. It's very much appreciated. :)

By the way, he linked me to your site... are you taking ART 273/CS 565 this semester? I took that class last year... holycrapbestclassever!!! Here's my 2D animation from the class [link] :D
I also took ART 171 a few years ago, it looks like from your work that you guys are learning different things than we did though. But I like your work on that so far, I'm bookmarking your site!

Your "Mantis Style" Picture is very funny! I loved it! And I think it would be extremely well suited to our little lr5-related community, Rokugan.

Will you join us?
