Thank you so much everyone who took the time to wish me a Happy Birthday! It means a lot! 

Not a lot of news to report on, I admit I haven't been coming to DA as much as I should, but I do appreciate all the likes, comments and watches. You guys rock!

This weekend I'll be participating in 100th Sketchfest:… I haven't been a member since the beginning, but it's been a few years that I've been a part of it, and it's such a great creative outlet. This event is your chance to win some great prizes from a number of artists. You don't have to be an artist to participate - you can give prompts or comment. I'll be offering a print of my colored pencil piece "Esoteric" with a matching magnet.

For coloring enthusiasts, I'm now offering coloring pages at my Etsy store:

I do update my other social media more frequently than DA, so feel free to follow me on:

Hi there, and welcome to my gallery! I'm a self-taught artist/illustrator. I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, and have been doing art professionally for about 15 years. My work is mostly traditional portraiture with fantasy elements. I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, our two young sons, a trusty feline sidekick, and more books and movies than we have room for. I love to write, take photos, cook, ride horses, and play a delicious profusion of violent videogames. If you want to know more, please visit my site at

Thanks for looking, and alons-y!

etldy2002 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2004
I really like all of your deviations, so I think I'm gonna :+devwatch: you. Just out of curiosity, why the major gap inbetween your first few deviations and all the ones you made today?
MJWilliam Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2004  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks! To answer you question, the truth is that I have no excuses. I plain forgot about it. :O
