Hi Gem! As you apparently like things such as shoutboxes and fairies with piercings, I hereby shout that my latest beer fairy has a navel ring. You'll need to Download to see it, as her bellybutton is really only a very small part of the entire image.

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 21, 2015, 12:50 PM
journal header testing by rockgem

EDIT: about to head out the door wheeeeeeee!
the sundew has pink flowers :la: hopefully the flytrap wil have flowered when i get back :P 
see you all soon Germany here I come!!!

Woah!

:faint:

Last time I even looked at the calendar it was June - its like I have blinked and its nearly August!
When did this all happen??? :O where has the time gone????
and Oh my I will have been a member of Deviantart 10 years on  the 31st July

I jet off to Germany on Thursday (more about that in a while) I thought I would offer an update of sorts. Before I get eaten by my luggage (this packing thing is brutal!) 

in my lack of being social here i have managed to randomly  win a pub quiz with the theme animations and cartoons ( thank goodness for my love of retro cartoons and obsession for watching Disney and Pixar animations!)  :la:
been  working lots and lots - enough that last night i dreamed that i was looking through the suppliers catologue for watch parts and spares last night .. ahem....
also have acquired a quartet of potted plants that just happen to be carnivorous, :giggle:  i have a flytrap, a sundew and 2 pitcher plants, the sundew and flytrap are going to be flowering soon - so pictures will happen - probably a few macro shots of the leaves etc as well for good measure :P 

so about that Work..

I am still working extra hours  with my job. I passed the courses at head office so I have gained  more levels in watch maintenance and repair (level three parts 1 and 2 and level 4) its taken the pressure off a lot as before only my manager had these skills, now with myself and my other main workmate trained up it takes some of the pressure off -  My manager is going to be off  for quite some time yet, it might be the case that he chooses to take retirement and not return  but nothing is certain at present - he is a very private gent and we only have minimal information about his condition - all we know is since he has been taken poorly he has been in hospital and there is a specialist going to see him.
He’s a bit like a granddad-figure to me and a teacher - he taught me a whole new fascinating skill set that has helped me grow into a job that I love, and gave me a chance at that job when no one else had done so,  so please spare a thought and a prayer for him

Play…

Germany  - more precisely Cologne for a music festival  - Amphi 2015 :la:  me and the boyfriend-shaped-creature will be flying out on Thursday  to Dusseldorf and getting the train to Cologne - and in turn meeting up with several of our friends including my brain twin lexiebum - we are planning to take over the world using sporks! :la:
lexiebum i have to introduce you to Izzy!  she might be our brain -triplet :la:
I might have limited internet access from Thursday until Tuesday when I arrive back  home so I may well pop up on here or more like i will pop up on face book but I make no promises as i might just be an anti-social Gem enjoy the music and generally rock out :P

Any German Deviants who might be in Cologne or even at Amphi festival itself -
Warning! : rockgem  in close proximity, prone to random outbursts of art and fractal obsession, most noticeable attached to a camera and/or sketchpad approach with caution and ply with mead (preferably the cherry kind! :lmao: )
basically just look for the slightly crazy British lady juggling camera, sketchpad and mead while waving a spork and wearing a military style hat... :lmao:

Planning on going to see ‘ Aesthetic Perfection’ in August if I can wrangle a day or two off work (as its near the 4 year anniversary of me and the boyfriend-shaped-creature being an item argh i have to find him a nice gift *flail* ) and then the end of August its some little festival thing up north  and I shall be getting my glowsticks out! :la:

right back to the packing!

Other than that hope all my friends here are safe and well see you  when i get back! :blowkiss: 

:bulletwhite: Birthdays! :bulletwhite:

DD stamp II by dexter13-sk DD Stamp by tRiBaLmArKiNgS I Suggest DD's Stamp by IdaLarsenArt

I'm a Wolverhampton university graduate - semi-professional artist/freelance artist
I dabble in a little of everything including crafts although i tend towards Digital art especially fractal manipulation work.

I create and provide stock and resources for use on deviantART and occasionally try my hand at literature.

I've had work published in magazines & submitted to charity exhibitions. I held my first solo exhibition in May 2012 and took part in a collaborative exhibition in December 2012

I've been commissioned by 'too fast apparel' clothing
and taken part in local community events promoting market traders and local artists with displays of artwork in empty retail units and of late I've become a regular at several local craft fairs and markets helping to raise money for charity

In the future I'm looking to become more self-employed

--------------------------------------------------------------

:spotlight-right: Commission Work :spotlight-left:

I'm open for commissions!

:bulletblack: The price of a piece of work will depend a lot on what exactly you would want me to create and how long it will take me to complete - I’m open to negotiations - especially when it comes to traditional works that would require mailing. please factor in postage costs if that is the case!

:bulletblack: Please be fair and consider the time that some of my artworks take.

:bulletblack: commission work will be uploaded to dA but not submitted to be available for download or selling as a print -if it is a digital commission i will email your piece to you full-sized without watermarks etc.

:bulletblack: anything else just ask or drop me a note

Hey, this is pretty clever, i only once got around to serious incorporating fractals into Photoshop.. The masking has a very nice illustrator vibe to it.  Glad to see someone doing this on the genre. Your a rare breed.

thankyou for the compliment :aww: 
i always used to work with collage when i did a lot of traditional work and its been a natural progression to work with the same sort ideas using digital ideas instead - i started fractal manipulations back in 2008 and there was a huge discuss weather or not it belonged in fractal or digital art and then the sub-categories  in the fractal block were instated :la: - it started mainly the fractals but then i began to throw non-fractal elements in the mix - textures from my own photos etc. and i find i am still developing and evolving my work  ( when i find the time!) thankyou for stopping by
