I occasionally drop by to upload stuff but I haven't actually interacted on DeviantART in years. It kind of feels overwhelming, I guess, to try to socialize on here after so much time. But I sincerely thank everyone interested in my art, new and old.
I created my account here 10 years ago when I was 15. Yeah. I'm fucking ancient now, I guess!
A lot has changed since then. I started and graduated high school. I completely changed my style 2-3 times. I graduated college with a BFA in Illustration. I started traveling to conventions. Now I am beginning an apprenticeship as a tattoo artist.
Even if I am never as active as I was before, I'll always have an appreciation for this website. 10 years ago I was a very lost, very sad kid trying to share my art and connect with people. Now I am less lost and less sad, but I will never forget the connections I made here.
Yeah, I'm a 25 year old sappy old goth.
