Lame Lavatory Lament[The following conversation took place from my Android phone at work]
me: I just got back from the turlet. I bring this up not only because I am proud of myself for using the big boy potty but because while I was dropping the kids off at the pool some guy pokes his head in and says "Kristen? Kristen? Kristen Miller?" Apparently expecting whomever was in the stall to respond. At this point I'm thinking several things: 1. I am definitely not Kristen Miller. 2. Last I checked Kristen was a girl's name. 3. I'm not drunk enough to have wandered into the ladies room, and 4. even if I were a boy named Kristen, a public restroom is the last place I would answer to it.
Nilli: there are boys named Kristen? ._.
you sure he didn't say Christian?
me: Apparently ._.
Nope, definitely Kristen
No ch sound for the st
Nilli: were they foreign?
Nilli: odd then :]
Chrome Cr-48 ComputerI came home from work to an unexpected package at my door, and its contents were the last thing I expected.
A Google Cr-48 Chrome Notebook.
Fabricated for My FatherI don't think I've talked about my dad much on here, but for a lot of reasons this seems like a very appropriate time.
It's easy to say I owe my dad a lot, that's likely true for most of us, but even with an annual holiday to remind us it's sometimes an easy thing to forget. For going on 26 years now he's just been "dad", that's how things are, no big deal, but recent events have brought to the fore how significant a role he's played in shaping the person I am today.
I can list dozens of qualities I owe to him, most paramount of which being patience, calm, and kindness. Every mannerism of which I am most proud today, I can attribute to my father. Every day he practices these qualities and more, apparently effortlessly, naturally, often thanklessly, with an infectious smile that seemingly never fades.
He never preached these traits, only tried to live them daily, serving as an example I'm sure he hoped I would follow. It took me a little while

I made the first contest journal with Eclipse, wanting to test it out. But all of the sudden I can't edit the entry anymore - so I am rewriting it in an old journal entry ,, hopefully it will work better now.
What you have to do is simple Draw one of my characters !
You can find them all here : but if you find another character that belongs to me in my gallery, you can draw them too.
✦ Upload your drawing here on deviantart (not somwhere else, other wise I can't add it to the collection of all entries) and mention me in the description or/and send me a link. I will add it to the collection and leave a comment, that way you can be sure you entered the contest.
✦ You can enter as many times as you like
✦ You can draw them in any way you want : digital or traditional, all is fi
Closed for now
requests are closed until I finish drawing the characters I picked,
I'm opening a tiny request journal in order to celebrate New Year!
I'll be most likely drawing a headshot linearts like this one! But it also can be a different type of drawing, such as an ink or pencil sketch, or an animated illustration as it will be a surprise.
I will be taking a look at this journal from time to time !
I won't be drawing all requests, just few of these, but I'll tell you if I'll accept your request and feature your comment then.
Don't ask me if I accepted your request, just check if your comment is featured. If it is, then you'll receive a drawing from me at some point.

OH ME GUSTASETTLE IN CHILDREN IT'S TIME TO FEATURE SOME KICKASS FANART
NO APOLOGIES BECAUSE I LOVE EVERY SINGLE PIECE AND I GOTTA SHOW EM TO YOU LIKE A FERRET WITH HER BABIES
(In all seriousness, I have a ton of fanart piled up in my inbox notifications, and the sheer volume gives me so much anxiety it's kinda overwhelming to attempt to comment on every piece (there's hundreds!) Please, PLEASE just know from the bottom of my heart, if you've ever drawn or written something for me (or even just shown support), I'm grateful beyond words. Thank you~)

Contest - Super Upgrade (open)Hi everyone!
I promised to make a contest in June - here we go!
Imagine... A young mage (or a witch, or a wizard, or... well... anyone) gets their first magic staff. As you can see, it's pretty plain and boring, but time passes and the staff (as well as its owner) changes... Perhaps its owner turned to dark magic and the staff now looks rather intimidating. Perhaps they are a druid and the staff is covered in flowers and leaves. Or perhaps now it contains one of elements. Or it's a weapon of Heavens. Or a deadly tool of a necromancer. It's up to you to decide!
So the task of this contest is to upgrade this staff.
paint the staff any colour you want
add details, ornaments, sparkles, etc. (as many as you want!)
submit only 1 entry (you can draw several variants but then you'll have to choose which one you'll submit as your entry)
(optionally) write a few
