My Bio
Hi, dA-ers, :handshake:

Well, I'm a fourth-generation Japanese American who's trying to get more in touch with my heritage. As you can tell, my main passion in relation to that is Gackt. Ever since I became a fan of his in 2007, I feel he's brought me a greater appreciation of that part of myself. He inspires me creatively and intrigues me. His music touches my heart, and he's become someone whom I love greatly. I'm entirely self-taught in Photoshop, and I honestly don't know if I would have started making art were it not for the deep emotions and amazing experiences he has brought to my life. However, I'm grateful, for it's given me a home here on dA and wonderful watchers/friends. :blowkiss:

I'm also a huge Arashi fan; they make me happy and I love listening to them and watching their concerts often. I'm a big admirer of each individual member and really enjoy their TV shows and movie projects as well. They also creatively inspire me in many ways, so much of my work is devoted to the group and to Jun, Satoshi, Sho, Nino and Masaki individually as well. :D :woohoo: :squee:

I don't know what else to really say about myself other than I hope my postings somewhat reveal me as an artist, and a little bit personally as well. I tend to be very private so express myself best through my art/writing. Please enjoy and thank you for looking!

I definitely don't mean to sound snotty, but, here are a few things about me and dA.
:bulletblue:-please no tagging me. I'm not going to respond or pass it on to other people on here.
:bulletgreen:-please don't ask for my personal email address, I don't like to give it out, except to friends I've known for awhile and trust.
:bulletorange:-Unfortunately I don't read, write or speak Japanese, so I can't converse with you as such and likewise, can't translate anything for you. I'm trying to learn, but I'm sorry.
:bulletpink:-At the moment, I don't do commissions or trades, unless it is for special friends. Also, I also don't take requests for/on my work. Sorry. With me, what you see is what you're gonna get. :D
:bulletpurple:-I honestly don't mind if you are going to download my wallpaper for use on your desktop or laptop. However, if you are going to use anything I make for something else, such as to put on a shirt, or stick in a YouTube video, I would like to be asked first. I work really hard on everything I make, and part of why I make it is because I love sharing with other fans. However, I don't want to watermark everything, or worse, stop posting altogether because someone is inconsiderate of my wishes and feelings. Just ask!
:bulletred:-I don't have a personal 'in' to Gackt, so I can't pass along anything to him, etc. However, I am always happy if I am able, to help fans with source material, or other information they may be looking for, as much as I can. If I can't, I do have friends I am happy to point to you that can possibly help, but please understand they don't have any personal secret connections to Gackt, either. I promise. I swear. I'm not holding out on anybody.

Despite all of that, I'm really truly appreciative of the ongoing support from people and everyone's friendship. I've mentioned this before, when I first started a page on here, it was primarily as a sort of online storage for my work. It's become a lot more than that, and I'm delighted fellow fans seem to enjoy my stuff. Thank you very much.

Hey! I'm back!

So after a very, very long time, I'm back! I have some new Arashi WP I will be posting in a bit. Besides a lot of upheaval in my personal life the last several years, I kind of soured on posting any art, mostly because I haven't had time to make any, and because of a horrible person on here some time ago who plagiarized one of my pieces, cropped my identifiers out, then had the nerve to draw her own crap on top of it and post it back on here as her own. When I called her out on it she was completely unrepentant and was very rude to several of my friends who also did the same. Needless to say, I ended up reporting her, but it made me not want to share anything anymore. Realizing we don't have much time until Arashi's hiatus (more on that later) and that my greatest joy is connecting and sharing with people who love the groups and people I love as much as I do, I recently connected with some new Arashi friends on Twitter and it made me want to start to share again. I'm currently

If the title doesn't clue you in, I'll warn you before you go any further: this entry is just that, ranting about stuff that's been bugging me lately regarding my art, and my fandoms. So please stop now if you don't want to hear it. Thanks. For those of you who support me, as always, I appreciate you and your listening to me. Thank you for that, too. Was just on Google Images looking for photos of Gackt to possibly put together a new blog for my group. As usually seems to be the case, a couple of my wallpapers of him came up---and did NOT lead back here to my dA account. Here on my main page and on every single piece of work I post, all I as

Random Stuff.

0 min read
Just a little random blog post, it's been a few weeks. Not much going on with me, other than the usual struggles, almost on a daily basis, it seems. I've just been trying to hang in there and get by, usually with the help of my best friends and some of my family and, of course, the fandoms I love and cherish. It's hard, though, when you're constantly made to feel like you're not good enough, or when you're constantly being penalized for who you are while all around you other people are allowed to be who they are, and not in a good way. Enough about that. These people's problem with me and my so-called 'attitude' is exactly that, their probl
