I've been gone. But I got out for good behavior.
I need a premium membership. I know 'cause my data bar says "Needs premium membership." I suppose it has given up on me ever paying for the privilege that dA generously sponsors with its free entitlements, and it is now publically begging the dA community at large. For what I cannot privately afford. There are other things I truly need, but as far as dA is concerned, these are ancillary concerns that distract me from my commitments here. It is sad. With a threadbare wool overcoat, a funny hat with ear covers, and a tin cup, the image would be complete. I am a dA derelict.

If by a miraculous intervention, some generous philanthropist drops a membership into my cup, I promise not to spent it (not all of it at least) posting poorly drawn, half naked pictures of women, or erotic anthro slashfic illustrations involving Draco and Ron as hermaphrodite chipmunks.

Much to my mothers chagrin, I was born with a pencil in my hand. She was later heard to declare, " I'll count my blessings. An artist is better than a shipwright any day of the week."

I grew up alone, in my close-knit family of five. Our house was filled with whispering muses gifted upon ambivalent children. With one brother as a musician, and another as a writer, we were not oblivious to the language of creativity, it just didn't make much sense. I constantly flicked at the buzzing gibberish of inspiration until one day the whispering voice in my ear spoke clearly to me. In that moment I saw my future, and the vision of my greatness was wrapped in resplendent glory.

My mother quickly drove me to a doctor where I was heavily medicated.

I now see through a glass darkly. In my moments of clarity I write the muse's words into a book; A muse by the way, who is now old and tired and sits on my shoulder grousing about the heat while chain smoking cheap indian cigarettes.

The entries read something like this: Dramfiddle tom nobe saucertip. Beet nasir rom cuddle, nip scratcher mine sarahtov!

As brilliant as that is, luckily there are pictures, you can see them here. Good luck with making any sense out of it all.

Favourite style of art: I love great line work
Operating System: MAC
Personal Quote: I draw. I draw a lot. I try to make money drawing. Sometimes I draw socks. However, I am not a sock drawer.
