Yo. Is there anybody out there? This is ground control to Major Tom.
He died, that was sad. So did Snape. In real life, I mean. In both cases.

So yeah, I did my vanishing trick again. And I'm sure it won't be the last time. Things that happened:

-(May 2015)Finally got my Associate's Degree, with enough credits to have earned a Bachelor's and then some.
-(August 2015)The restaurant I was working at closed down and I lost my job as a result. Oh well.
-(October 2015)Puzzle and Dragons.
-(November 2015)Fallout.
-(December 2015)Fallout!
-(January 2016)Ran out of savings and became broke once more.
-(Various 2015-2016)Many wondrous adventures and photoquests, wrote some music, did some stuff.
-(Five minutes ago)Was listening to Joe Hisaishi (the composer for most of Miyazaki's movies) radio on Pandora, and a song by my old piano teacher (Mark Sloniker) came on. The world is amazing sometimes.

Things that are happening:
-My cousin is designing/coding a video game for mobile devices. It will be similar to Fire Emblem, with randomly-generated maps. I am doing all of the art (32-bit pixel graphics) and sound design. It is so much fun. Especially creating these little bits of art and then seeing a computer magic them into a full landscape. As a result, I am producing art at a faster rate than ever before, but I can't share most of it yet :/

Hope y'all are well. I'll be around for a little while at least. Might upload some photos, maybe a sneaky little bit of pixel art. We'll see ;p


^That doesn't exist apparently, so... :shifty:

My camera and I, we share an eye!

I am a student, majoring in music and astronomy. I really love to do photography and draw, especially with charcoals. I dabble in every form of art, though, from sculpting to painting to poetry (and so many others). I am currently going to school in Chicago. I also really enjoy languages: I'm fluent in Spanish, proficient in Japanese and Arabic, and am studying Vietnamese and Chinese on the side.

Current Residence: Lake Zurich, IL (but I'm from Fort Collins, CO - it's cool)
Favourite genre of music: Whatever genre Kajiura Yuki could fall under, but I like them all
Favourite photographer: Ansel Adams
Favourite style of art: I like it all. Personally, I like drawing people's faces and photographing things
Operating System: Win7+Firefox
MP3 player of choice: MP3s destroy sound waves!
Shell of choice: Conch...?
Wallpaper of choice: Nebulae!
Skin of choice: Smooth...???
Favourite cartoon character: Phillipe
Personal Quote: I did not lose my mind; I merely became lost within it.

Hello! Deviant art has changed a lot recently, as you mentioned in your last note, so much in fact that I was kicked out of my other account and am starting a new one! I am reaching out to some of my previous "watchers" including you. Please check out and "watch" my new account (the one I'm posting from) and enjoy your Christmas and all of the turkey and cookies that accompany the season :)

Well thank you very much, and I'm glad you came back :) I am kindof a ghost on this site (as I am in real life, actually), just fading in and out at irregular intervals (thus the late replies)... But I am still happy to hear from you again, and look forward to some swell art happenings :nod: I hope you had a swell Christmas (mine mostly involved tacos and hiding in the mountains, but it was still grand) and I hope that this new year treats you kindly :)

Haha no worries xD
My Christmas was spent coming out of hiding, it was the warmest day of the week :) It has so far, best of luck to you as well. Cant wait to see more of your photos this year :)
