Wow where does the time go? ...eh? ...not feeling me on that? Okay cool it was worth a shot I guess. To quickly update on me, I would mention that my folks are doing well, my dad's doing okay since his stroke almost two years ago, and I've got a comic project I'm working on, that will be finished sometime next year. It obviously hasn't been a great year for me keeping up on DA (more on that after he ask), even with all their friendly changes to it, but one of a few things I feel I've been very consistent on is updating my weekly polls.

Which brings me to my ask. As you can tell my Premium Membership runs out sometime around Feb-March. Pretty sure that means no more polls from me as a result. I know many of you guys enjoy them, and with DA's holiday offer if any of you guys are re-upping your Premium status' I'd deeply hope you'd consider me as your freebie or at least reblog this. Any amount of time is welcome, and if you guys have a poll idea you'd like to see asked just comment somewhere and I'll put it up. Just a reminder you have from now to I think Jan. 1st to get in on DA's offer.

DA's changed a lot since I've been here, I think some of the new changes are great for any artist savvy enough to use them. Sadly though, I've been thinking that once my Premium membership goes up it might be time to move away from this site. I've found that while DA is great for photographers models poets and certainly very skilled digital/traditional painters, comic artists have a tougher time getting noticed. Not to be all egotistical like ('I'm so fly' why doesn't anyone care about my work) I'm just starting to think that maybe other sites like Facebook or Twitter are better for the medium. Certainly with DA there's always a pressure to produce just to maintain what interest people have in you and your artwork. When you fail to produce regularly the pressure mounts even more because you know people are going to move on or walk away. With other mediums you can just reblog or comment on a social issue as a way of maintaining touch. I recognize that dA's done a great job with the new watch feed, and reblog option but the community here seems more specialized than other social networks...

...that and a lot of the people i normally talk with or used to converse with either are on here sparsely or have just flat out left. Not that I'm blaming them, life happens, trust me I get that more than anyone, but it's less of a reason to make an effort to invest time here. I know it's probably bad to talk about how rough my time has been on dA while asking for a Premium membership but I'm sure that what I've gone through is something that isn't terribly unfamiliar to you if you've been on dA for a good period of time. You've probably thought about ditching dA yourselves whether its a result of a lack of interest in your work or you socially but like me have still made a degree of effort to stay. Perhaps I'm just going through a down period, but as I think about the kind of artwork I want to create and how I want to get it out there dA doesn't seem like the right place anymore to do that. Not saying that I haven't had a great time, or met some great folks, I certainly have on both counts but maybe my season here has reached its course.

I'm around-ish. Like if someone drops me a line like you I'll usually see it within 24 hrs. I've probably been less active in terms of deviations and stuff than you, I'm working on one comic right now that's really sucking up my time (along with trying to get in shape which it mad frustrating). Tumblr seems really good for cartooning so I'm thinking once I finish with this comic of maybe developing a presence there.

Recreational reading is honestly something I've let slip by the wayside with the exception of comics and the occasional political or economics article (or something about Hulk Hogan). When I do take time to it's usually a short story or narrative prose, I think with poetry I'm probably not engaging with the material as well as I used to. It feels like I've had more of an imagination for it in the past, and maybe that's dimmed a little bit. Though I've had a knack for adapting some poems into short comics, it's a lot easier than narrative prose I find.

I notice that you're getting your MBA, hope that goes well for you. I think it was a good decision of you to leave teaching, I've known a lot of people that are teachers and it's a real stressful job. I'll make sure to check out your website soon, if you're thinking of leaving dA I'll make a point to follow you there.

Ah, makes sense. And yeah, getting in shape is so hard at first. Starting it is always the worst part for me. Tumblr is pretty good, I tend to avoid it lately because of the rampant SJW stuff, but do let me know if you make a blog there. You are extremely talented, and I enjoy seeing how much detail and precision goes into your work. 

I feel the same way, honestly--the words came easier before, and they made more sense. It's a rare day when I do write something. That's interesting, turning poetry into comics--I'll have to check that out. I don't think I've really seen that done before. And there is always time to read up on Hulk Hogan. Worth.

I actually have to go back and get a separate degree to get my masters, as I've decided on getting a degree in midwifery. I actually just accepted a job at a preschool here in Atlanta so I can pay bills while saving up cash for school. It's a lot better than my old job, and I'm already exhausted (can anybody say evening screwdrivers?). And I'm in between dA and my blog. I post new stuff there, but I check out other people's stuff here.
