It's sad but true my last post here was the last time I had been able to visit dA logged in due to some major life changes I had some difficulty recovering my account.
That was WELL over a year ago but I'm glad to be back. I'm glad to have the chance to be here again for and with you all, yays. 16 years now......headed to 17 I've been here a lil while...
I do have some news though....
I'm definitely stripping down my account. These months I've been away have still been plenty of people contacting me that my work is being used without my permission for various things, and this site is the only one I have currently.
I have not been the colorist work monkey that I was in the past. Instead I am working on getting a lot of my own stuff together. Like extravagant mystery boxes and self published books, hand made jewelry, hand drawn pictures, and home made soaps and soaks.
Comics was a dead ended road for me, they way I traveled it. Time to walk a different way.
I dont use a personal website right now, just facebook. Lots of Live videos and easy fun so find me there https://www.facebook.com/NeiRuffinoArtist

Hey I’m sorry to read this, I’m a huge fan of your work with My 8 Fairytale Fantasies prints are currently the only artworks I have on display in my room! Your work is a huge inspiration to me. I enjoyed meeting you briefly at London Comic-Con. All the best for the future! 😊
that was part of the problem, seeing my work pieced apart by these up and comers that seemed to water me down and thats not great. If that happens it better be on some awesome brand that I own not some DC or Zenescope look.
I'm not sure how comics were a dead end road for you. You've had a tremendous output over the years. A lot of your work is girly and feminine so it doesn't always jive with me as a man. (I like monsters/creatures) But You've been constant.
yeah but its busting your bottom and in my case injuring yourself for some really ungrateful people. comics is only one small part of what i like to do., and it was consuming 90% of my awake time.
