After a many-year hiatus from Deviant Art, I have decided to update my galleries here and rejoin the community. I will be offering prints in the future. It's a lot of work to upload and sort 3 or 4 years of art-- but fun, too.

Well, I'm all back and set up in Olympia again for another year at Evergreen. More Rainier photos to upload definitely but I'm currently in the process of replugging into civilization, and I'm going to have to find a job. Might be a while before I upload more stuff, but it'll come soon enough and sooner or later I'll also work on uploading more traditional art.

Well, I'm back in town from Mt. Rainier where I've worked for the NWIA as a bookstore clerk at the Sunrise Visitor Center for the summer. I'm back for my 20th birthday on the 31st, and the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle. Just finished uploading some of the best shots from my time up at Rainier so far, certainly there should be more to come in the next month or so. I'll probably finally upload some of the traditional art (drawing and painting) I've been doing at Evergreen, especially since I'll be going back for more art there in September. Know that if you've given me a favorite I appreciate it greatly! I think I've decided no more 'thanks for
