Back in February I celebrated my 10th anniversary of joining dA and wanted to undertake a project to highlight some of my favourite memories from the years gone by. I came up with the idea for a memory book, with a range of 'Polaroids' capturing special moments, friendships and events. As the project is taking far longer than expected I decided to release the images one by one, and assemble them into the scrapbook when the project is ready.

Read below to find out more about the memory, and check out my gallery for more in the series.


Having started the 'So i herd u liek emotes??' news article series, I soon created another series featuring interviews with Emoticonists. Being a massive fan of blunaowl's work, I built up the courage to ask Sarah (then called brokenboulevard) if she would take part.

She agreed and invited me along to her chat, where I bumped into zikes and nillemotes (aka zachriel). After getting over the initial fangirl stage of meeting 3 emoticonist I really admired, we soon became friends. All three of them supported me in one way or another over the years, and whilst we don't often get the chance to chat, we still keep in touch (and even managed to meet up in person earlier this year).

This memory is based on the :8B: emoticon created by Sarah which spawned from a conversation we had one evening. :whisper: Yes, I know that emote was made in 2009, but shhhh...

Despite following your gallery early this year, even today I still admire your previous work throughout your years in the Emoticon Community. X)
