Upcoming Site Changes and Your Involvement

About a year and a half ago, we posted a journal discussing how DeviantArt’s acquisition would grant us the resources to make many positive changes for the site.  Thus far, a lot of such improvements haven’t been entirely obvious — like the many new hires across all departments (we've more than doubled our staff!) or upgrades to the tools we use behind-the-scenes.  All of this was done in order to bring you big-ticket changes, including a much-improved and redesigned site.
We've approached the redesign with a lot of consideration, which is why it’s been in development for so long.  Not only do there continue to be lengthy internal conversations discussing every piece and every feature in explicit detail, but we

THE DEED IS DONE! A huge thank you to everyone!
After 3 years, we were finally able to conclusively end the project today. A huge thank you and shout out to all the artists, and everyone who supported us along the way.
We technically still have ~10 copies of the book left, but sales have slowed to the point where it wouldn't make sense to drag this on for any longer (at the risk of inflation). The store will still be open until these copies are gone, and we'll be selling them at the base price we purchased them as.
As always, we value transparency. Below are the net sales according to Storenvy, how we did the calculations for the final amount, and the donation receipt to Make a Wish Foundation.
*Note: We had to subtract the shipping fees from the net total.
Once again, a huge thank you to everyone involved! As individuals who grew up in an environment that made achieving our dreams possible, we feel the obligation to give back to the community that gave us this

Voyage to the Unknown: Paintings

Eons ago I started a new feature in which I browsed through a category or sub-category I don't necessarily browse frequently, or the ones I browse the least, and collected some of the art I found that stood out! The point of this was to challenge myself, exit my comfort zone and discover new art in the process!  I'll be tagging people in each issue to follow suit and do their own, however, don't feel obligated to respond to the tag. I just want everyone to know I'd love to see them do their own spin of this feature :) (Smile)
Please visit the Master Journal for more information about this project, and to leave a link to yours if you end up doing one of your own! Voyage to the unknown: Master Journal and use the tag #TheVoyage i

Summing Up Mermay and some News
Thanks so much to those who supported me! Heart Heart Heart Heart You're the best!  
This year Mermay wasn't that active for me, but I managed to finish only 2 works. That's why I decided to present myself and you a journal entry with wonderful mermaids from different artists. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did!
And I wanted to thank again all people who made their contribution for this article. Hug Heart  
Psss... these are my works. 

And I recorded a video for the second one. You can watch it here. 
Oh, almost forgot! I drew my friend :iconle

I will draw your portrait
It felt like only a few days ago that I hit 200 watchers and already you guys are over 300. It makes me both proud and humbled to have so many amazing people stop by my page and enjoy it. I wanted to make another feature of your art but this time I'd like to give you something more interesting. 
I will draw you portraits! :excited: I always visit my watchers' profiles and I know that you are damn good looking! :kiss: It would be so cool to practice my portrait skills with your gorgeous faces! 
To participate:
1. You must be an active watcher of mine.
2. Send me a photo of yourself (or if you'd like, of someone else that brings beauty and joy to your life) in a note or in the comments of this journal.
If you want to be anonymous (as much as sharing a photo allows) send me the photo as a St.ash link via note and let me know you don't want me to link your dA profile.
What I will do
1). I will pick one or two photos that I find the

Clashing combo.
I have a bad combination. I have a mind that will absolutely look for things to beat myself up with, and I have a long list of things I could feel guilty about. 
When people in the UK hear that I'm going home to Mauritius to visit my family they presume I'm going to spend a gorgeous horizontal beach holiday at one of the world's most renowned honeymoon destinations. The reality is that this is the (on average) 3 week spell I get per year to come and see all my loving relatives, try and support all the struggling ones however I can, grieve the ones I have lost, try and make the most of my parents and not be overwhelmed by how much older and sicker they are, try not to see how much they could do with me being here for them... We can't go out a lot because of my mother's health anyway. This year we can't do much because of my health too. I got home and it took ten days before I could really even get out of the house for an hour or so without being unconscious/asleep for the rest of t
