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.

It's Christmaaaaaaassssssssss! - and other things

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 18, 2014, 3:33 AM
journal header testing by rockgem

 Long Journal time - so many little updates and so much going on! wheeeee! :la:

:bulletwhite: the rubbish bit... :bulletwhite:

I'm putting this first to get it over and done with i hate being grumpy about things so lets get it done then on with better things!.
I've had a few notes recently asking if i can 'work for free' as in create commissioned works etc. for nothing, I have replied repeatedly about potentially coming to an arrangement if the work is a tweak of something i already have in my gallery but no. While i wish i could do this i am afraid i have to say that I cannot. I would love to be able to but i can't. like a lot of other artists my art is both a hobby and (in part) a career to me - while i am all for creating art as a favour to close friends, or as a gift, or as part of an art exchange - or even as a contest prize - please do not expect me to work for free. I every so often I have comissions available on here for 100:points: which considering my works can take between 2 and 8 hours to complete - is not much at all.
I do not take stock requests unless they are a commission , my stock if it already exists is free to use however people wish to use it (within reason) however please ask before using it off site or for any commercial gain.

right on to the fun things!!!

:bulletwhite: Its Almost Here! :bulletwhite:

The season of joy and goodwill is almost upon us! in the words of Slade - 'It's Christmaaaaaaaaaaasssssssssssssssss!'
the decorations are hung, the tree is up ( check out my tree!… ) the gifts are getting wrapped and the cards are being posted

I wish all of you here the best for the festive season no matter what you are Celebrating, here are a few  little bits of gift art from me to all of you just to say thankyou for your friendship and support over the past year and for the coming year of 2015!

:bulletwhite: Updates on life... :bulletwhite: 

Work keeps me running around like a maniac and most mornings staring longingly out of the train window on my way into the city at Key Hill Cemetery and wishing i could hop off for an hour or two ( or three or four or more) to take some pictures of this wonderful Victorian cemetery in the frost. 

art is happening behind the scenes all be it slowly, there will be new uploads soon and some stock as soon as i get some wriggle room and time away from the festive madness and giftwrapping and running round trying to keep the surprise gifts for people hidden from them until i can get them under wraps!

Hoping to end my hiatus/sporadic appearances  on here  in January and be back at least once or twice a week properly and get back to features over at DailyFractalFeatures i dislike it that i had to step down as a founder but i still want to get back into things and do my bit as a co-founder.

:bulletwhite:Seasonal Wish List Tag :bulletwhite:

I took this from  deadened-glow Journal 

1. Make up your mind

Make a post to your DA journal. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a ______ icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("all I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV."). The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons or art), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your DA or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

2. Tag along

Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use -- do it.

You need not spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf -- to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not -- it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Give, and you might receive. and you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

Here are mine:

1. I wish to have some more time to make new art and share it and generally get back on dA a little more
2. I wish that my friend Sam makes a speedy recovery from her recent surgery 
3. I wish that my aunt finds a new job Speedily and likewise her Son finds a better job than his current one
4. I  hope I've managed to get things right with all the gifts for my friends and family ( they are notoriously tricky to buy for!)
5. I'd like a little more time to catch up with friends 
6. I wish that my job continues to be as awesome and I pass levels 3 and 4  of watch maintenance and get well on the way to becoming more of a proper 'horologist' - (and maybe get back into college to study horology)
7. I wish to loose a little off my middle ( I want my 30 inch waist back!) but that's more a new year resolution 
8. art commissions (and the time to do them!) 
9. i wish i had a little more time to read the 150+ books mounting up on my shelf
10. & last but not least I wish that it works out and me and my mom can buy our house :la: 

:bulletwhite: Birthdays! :bulletwhite:

Monthly I create a piece of art and dedicate everyone here on dA who has a birthday that month - this list will reset in January 2015!

For the January Babies!  Collide...
For the February Babies! Sparkle-blossoms
For the March Babies!  This little piggy...

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

Thank you very much for the :+fav: of my watercolour "Flooded", I took the reference photo for it in the springtime on a walk with my daughter. It's now framed and hanging for sale on the wall of gallery located not too far from the spot it is painted from here in Winnipeg where I live. It was my first DD since coming back to deviantART and I am really pleased it was chosen for that. :-)
