I'm a computer nerd working as a graphic designer/art director and web designer. I "speak" fluent "anything-Adobe", but Photoshop is my favourite weapon of choice. It's my sword. Illustrator and Dreamweaver are my daggers. InDesign, Acrobat, Flash, Premier Pro, After Effects and the rest are my bat-a-rangs.
I also dabble in web mastering, marketing, copywriting, photo editing, photography, web programming and databases. (I'm a cyber witch, ok? I can do anything, just pay me enough and I'll figure out how to turn an idea into reality.) *wink, wink*
/shameless self-promotion

At the moment I'm recovering from a severe illness that nearly claimed my life in July 2018. I PTSD during the day and pretend to be a Sims 3 addict during the night. (I used to play that game a lot for a while, but right now I'm writing a book instead.)
I have a LOT of hobbies. I read a lot. Books, articles, papers, essays, poems, you name it... I read, drink Coca Cola, tea or water and I know stuff. Yeah, that's me, alright. :XD:
I also listen to all sorts of beautiful music. Classical music has always been a favourite and I listen a lot to movie scores, but I like alternative music too. Taking photos of my cats, chilling outdoors and walking through the forest are some of my favourite things to do. I'm also a huge movie buff and I love comics. (And art. And science.)
Uhm... What else? Well, if you were to label me as a happy-go-lucky goth, silly bookworm, posh night owl then I’d be totally fine with that. #LoL ;P

Hey, everyone! Thank you so, so much for all the birthday greetings! They really warm my heart right now. Thank you ever so much! :hug:

I'm going to be absent for a while longer, but I check in from time to time just to see what happens on dA. Even got my Core back and working again. :meow:
I've not taken many cat photos this year though. It kind of makes me a bit sad on top of everything else that has happened in 2018, but I nearly died so... Yeah. Life. It gets in the way sometimes, doesn't it? I'm still just processing that I got through it all. (For some reason that is a bit hard.) ^^;


If someone's interested in a Catmaffia calendar for Christmas I've just updated the front pages for 2019.

See you around, guys! Take care! :D
So, guys... I'm really tired and shaky and I have a hard time focusing on doing anything that really matters so I'm sorry if I don't reply like I used to do back in the days. You're all still precious to me, remember that! :love: 
Hey, guys! Remember me? (I'm always sure no one does.) :XD:
I've been very, very ill for a while. A lot more so than any doctor could believe, actually. It was even worse than I dared to think myself and I kind of always knew it was bad -  just not THAT bad... But, oh well, I'll live! And I'm doing pretty good now compared to before. I'm tired and exhausted and skinny and weak, but honestly most of all happy and relieved that I'm going to be 100% okay again. It will take time, but I will get there. Just wanted to share those happy news with you all. dA has meant so much to me and so many of you here have helped me feel better while I was fighting just to stay alive. Thank you for that! Hugs to you all from me and the cats (they're doing just fine)! Hug 
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend, people! :Only at Easter:
Happy Easter! (Now give us that treat!) by RavenMontoya
Long time no see, deviants! :wave: 
Just wanted to swing by and say that I'm not dead or imminently dying. What have you all been up to? Have I missed something exciting? :wink

While I have your attention:
Meorow has painted a lovely portrait of Tintin! Check it out! :heart:
