September 6, 2014. Just stopping by.

A big thank you to the ones still commenting and fav'ing my work here. I really do appreciate it, it made me smile going through all my comments just now.. and laugh at how quickly I still get angry and jump right into argue-mode over a stupid comment! I reeled it in though, no use starting something that I probably won't check again for another year lol... (I'd make that cute little sweat-drop emoticon here if I remembered how to do those!)

Another thank you to the birthday wishes, that was very nice of you to think of me even when I'm not here =)

I'm not dead. I feel like it though. I work a thankless 9-5, no time for photos these days, sadly. I have time for selfies on tumblr lol but that's as far as it goes, lately. Not drawing much either. I'm just too damn tired. Real life caught up with me, unfortunately. Hopefully, one day it'll all change...!

Anyway, I'll leave this here from the previous journal, I liked it:

I started this page to share my work; my weird, quirky obsession with vampires and supernatural things, my drawings, my love of make-up and fashion... Really, just to have fun with art and feel like I wasn't completely wasting my time with all of it. I'm so glad that a lot of you have enjoyed it and continue to appreciate it. I love you guys.

I still do work retouching photos every now and then. You can contact me at with the subject line Retouch.
You can find my (old) work on modelmayhem ( ), here, and on my makeshift website 

:heart: :rose:

Every thought of the idea of maybe making your own photograph comic? I think you'd make an excellent character. I got an idea if you want to hear it.

Happy Birthday!

You were one of the people that I fell in love with on DA.  One of the advantages of being my age is that I can appreciate the beauty of young ladies without the emotional mood swings that afflict men when we are young.  You are truly gorgeous.  Your skin, your curves, your eyes, and your imagination in your photos attracted me from the first time I saw you. 

(Okay, the fact that you remind me of my wife when she was your age doesn't hurt, either, LOL.)


Here is a birthday haiku for you (in addition to the llama)

creamy, warm, and sweet
you are like my favorite cup
of cafe au lait

:hug: and a fatherly :kiss: on the forehead

Happy Birthday.
