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:

FUN- that`s the most important thing!

I know that 'blah-zay' feeling of not wanting to create. Sooner or later, an idea will break through that you'll just HAVE to get on paper (or whatever medium you choose)
Jah blessin's, keep at it.

Hey...its good to know your still around. I totally understand the being busy with work and life. 
It can sap your creativity really bad. 
I've had to push through it myself. I have had some recent photoshoots, which I still need to upload to my website and DA.
And recently I'm getting into street photography. Getting out into Los Angeles more and more. And I just got a new smartphone, Nokia Lumia Icon with a 20 mpx camera.
Been playing with its manual setting and it rocks.

I hope you can get back into your photography. We need to continue our passion of taking pictures. Some days I get the itch to go shooting. So I try.

When you get a chance, please go and look at my website.

Hope to see more of you soon.

Hi, nice to hear from you. Understandable that having a job is of more importance than pursuing a hobby.
Unfortunately we're all way to busy doing stuff we really love.
Anyway I'm sure there will be a time and place for creativity...

Since you like vampire themes, have you seen her pictures:

All the best to you!

Hi there.
Love your work! Still enjoy all that you've posted and I haven't even seen them all yet.
A little sad to hear you're not creating too many more at the moment.
Great to hear you're still around!

I am sorry that things aren't going your way right now...I believe that you have enough skills that you can use "whatever" you have around you to enjoy your craft/skills, express yourself, and your fan base all at the same time! Yes, I said YOUR FAN BASE!!!
Think outside of your comfort zone, focus on you and how to get your $$$
