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

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: www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/s… 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: www.etsy.com/shop/MJWilliam

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

Forgive me DA, for I have sinned...

Fri Sep 22, 2017, 9:16 PM
...by not updating my journal for almost a year. Mea culpa.

I have not been coming to DA as much, to be honest, because it's changing in ways I don't like. Too many things to get into in detail. That said, I haven't forgotten my watchers, and whether you've been watching for a while or for a few days or just started, I love you all and appreciate every single comment, fave, and feature.

This year has been about a change of direction for me. On personal front there have been some changes with my neighborhood that affected my standard of life and creativity in a negative way, and it's likely I'll be moving, maybe even to a completely different state, in the next two years or so. Because of space and time constraints I've been doing a lot fewer conventions, and gotten into social media a lot more trying to build up my online presence. I've been an active participant in two art collectives, which has kept me pretty busy, and had a piece in an art show with La Bodega gallery in San Diego last month. I'm hoping to do more of these shows in the future. I've also been trying to get back to doing oils and experimenting with acrylics.

Thank you again to everyone for supporting me. It means the world to me. Please enjoy the features below by some amazing artists.

Whether you watch me or are just passing by, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and I want to wish you a very Happy New Year 2017!

This has been a very productive year for me. I joined two art collectives, became a regular participant at Sketchfest, and completed the entire Inktober challenge (which was not easy but fun nevertheless). I've also done quite a bit of traveling, which isn't typical of me. Below are some of my pieces from this year:

Farewell, 2016! by MJWilliam

Thank you for all your support throughout the year. It humbles and inspires me to know that my work is interesting enough for 3,246 people to have followed me. I might not be on here that often these days, but I appreciate every single watch, fave, and comment. If you want to follow me on my other social media, the links are below.

Happy New Year, and may it bring you all love, peace, and limitless creativity.

Oh... Hai!...

Wed Aug 17, 2016, 10:11 PM
Forgive me, DeviantArt, for I have sinned. It's been nearly six months since my last journal entry. :pray:

What's new, let's see... First, I have some awesome news: some of my graphite work will be featured in "Black-And-White: Volume Three" by Out Of Step Books. :dance: They're a wonderful company that makes gorgeous and informative art books.



You can preorder your copy here: www.oosbooks.com/Black_White_V…

By popular demand I'm also working on my first coloring book, which I'm hoping to release some time next year:



You can also find my work at the Femme Thou Art Collective, which is a great group of traditional female artists that holds bimonthly themed auctions: www.facebook.com/groups/621394…

I'm also now officially involved with the Enchanted Visions project: www.enchanted-visions.net/ , and have been a steady participant in Sketch Fest: www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/s… And of course, I'm still involved with art shows at conventions all over the country, where you can purchase my prints. Check my site for schedule info.

So yeah, I've been a busy bee. My DA inbox is overflowing, and I do apologize if I haven't replied to all your comments and notes. I appreciate every single one, and will make a point to get back to you.

Sadly, my novel got put on the backburner since someone told me to stay the hell away from the company I was going to use to publish it. So, now I'm pursuing other avenues. Stay tuned.

Thank you all for your continuing support!

Hello minions,

:iconflyingheartsplz:
:wave:

People have been asking me forever to post some videos of my work. So, I finally got around to it and joined the civilized modern society by starting a YouTube channel:

---------> www.youtube.com/channel/UCZbV7…

Not much on there right now, but I've got plans to add a lot more vids.

Visit, like, comment, subscribe! :iconpresentsplz:
