Hello. How are you?

Thu May 19, 2016, 7:53 PM
It's so typical of me to talk about myself, I'm sorry. :B

Does anyone on dA read journals anymore?  I try to go through them, but it's impossible for me to keep up! :ashamed:

I am still arting, now and then.  Drawings, mostly.  Some photography, but not much.  I miss it!  I miss my dA friends as well!  I have been spending a lot of time on redbubble.  I have been making a number of sales there, but the community just isn't the same.  If you are interested in a chance at some free art you can take a look over here:…

How have you guys been?  Any adventures or stories to share?  I'd love to see some thumbs of anything you are currently proud of, happy with, or even just glad you finished.  I'll make a journal feature with them.  You can share something you've recently :+fav:'d as well.

Sat Aug 8, 2015, 6:29 PM

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

8 years in September!

2. What does your username mean?

It's pretty straightforward now. :lol: It was originally omnibob8 which was a high school joke among friends. (And Bob's your uncle!)

Human. Hopeful. Determined.

4. Are you left or right handed?

A sinister lefty.

5. What was your first deviation?

The Castle by jdrainville

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

It depends on the day. I'd say mixed media suits me best. Pen and ink with watercolor and colored pencil then cleaned up and edited in photoshop. :D

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

Metalworking! Printmaking! Vector art!

8. What was your first favourite?

Maison - Vue sur St-Laurent by ioa

So beautiful!

Probably photography, followed by illustration.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

I couldn't pick just one... There are so many amazing artists here.

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

I've been lucky to meet quite a few people in person over the years. Those I would love to see in person would include: LadyLincoln CozyComfyCouch Evil-e33 Tammara petrova osagelady and many more whose names I can't remember how to spell at the moment. :giggle: :hug: 

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

I have been supported through thick and thin. My heroes know who they are. :hug:

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

Everything. Anything. I love it all.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

At home in the middle of the night when it feels like the whole world is sleeping.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

I have so many! Loads of hours messaging friends and viewing art and being pushed to try new things.
The funniest might be the devMeet where I talked with damphyr and spyed after being in a minor car accident with an actor... Good old LA. :lol:

Tumblr + Art Challenge

Sat Jun 15, 2013, 3:04 PM

I have a tumblr now: Synchronicity Creations

I decided to challenge myself by drawing one picture a day for thirty days.  Between working full time and being a mommy there are precious few hours in the day.  Adding daily art to the mix was chaotic, exhausting, and fun!

While not for the faint of heart, I'd recommend it to anyone in need of an art pick-me-up.

You can see all of the drawings on my tumblr...  The good, the bad, and the WTF?!

Geriatric Status

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 3, 2011, 1:28 AM
I woke up yesterday morning and hopped onto dA.  I noticed that they'd announced the new seniors.  And I noticed that my inbox seemed more crowded than usual.  Clicked on the news article:

And as I scrolled through the names, I got a bit confused.  Then started giggling madly. :giggle:

I'll confess I even got a little bit, well... :happycry:

Thank you to everyone who made it possible.  Thank you for making this place a home away from home.  I never thought to see a ` by my name.  I'm honored and all verklempt. :heart: :tighthug: :la:

I am still, yes STILL, in shock.  It hasn't worn off yet.  

Thank you for all of the wonderful comments!  I'll get to them all eventually. :heart:

I wonder if dA seniorship is good for discounts at restaurants. :eyes:
