After a really loooong break, I'm back!
Hey guys! YES! I'm alive! 
As some of you guys have seen, I've been around the community in the past weeks. I'm kinda back on DA, and I say kinda 'cause I had to take a year long break because I'm currently facing my last year as a graphic design student and it has been kicking my butt on astronomical levels. Good news is, I'm almost finished! The reason why I'm back its 'cause I'm taking a summer break and just taking one class, so I have way more free time to do art and such.
I've been reconnecting with a lot of old friends in here and have met some wonderful artists! It's so great to be back and see the community so welcoming. :heart: I haven't felt that in a long time, so thank you!
Art-wise, I have some news:
• I OPENED AN ETSY SHOP! Yup! So, I'm selling lots of really pretty merchandise like pins, shirts and of course, PRINTS! If you'd like to check it out here's the link:
• I'm also concentrating and developing my new art series,

Happy Birthday Big Muscles
Hello, Big-Muscle Folks!
Yup. We're 6 years old  now. In the scheme of things that's a milestone kinda like when we turned over 500,000 pageviews. I know. I  know. Pageviews - pffff - what's that all about? But seriously There have been groups around for 100's of years and barely scrape by with 10,000 pageviews. People are looking and watching and following which means for a lot of underappreciated, unknown artists their art is getting seen. I can't take any credit for that - I can take credit for confusing, befuddling, amusing, irritating, enlightening, igniting and a lot of other words that end with ing the folks who've managed to remain loyal to this group all these years. In dog years I think we're about 42 years old and for a lot of you that's really old while others like me that's young. ANYWAY, this month our journal will reflect on all things happy, joyous, and friendly.

"World Of Contrast" by Secretadmires:iconsecretadmires:

Wesley-Souza: "A reality of our world, great concept."

ErikShoemaker: "Unlike most people, who interpreted the theme as two ladies with differently colored hair and dresses, this artist took a more challenging concept and executed it very well. This is why this artwork deserves the first place. 

It is nice that the artist tried to go with a more realistic depiction which fits the setting and tone of the concept. In that regard the artwork could still be improved, most of all in terms of realistic lighting (the two sides of the street are lit from opposite sides). However, the colors, angle and perspective (which is one of the most challenging aspects in scenic manips) were matched very well overall."
Rowye: "Not exceptionally amazed by the execution but personally I think this is the artist wh

I've noticed a change in me since the days are now longer. My desire to work is stronger, my sleep deeper and in general I'm happier.  The birds are chirping louder , the animals are peeking their heads out to check the change. By my front door the crocuses are starting to pop, the world seems to have taken a bath and is waking up for us to enjoy.  I know that as the world rotates, some of the world will be getting winter, but maybe a ride in a convertible  is still possible.Did you know, sun brings about better feelings and happiness?  Wherever you are, may the sun shine on you always in your heart and life.
Please enjoy the videos. I watched the dolphins swim , last fall, it was an amazing site to see. I live on the edge of the east coast of the U.S.A.,- We have snow today and crocuses peeking through with hope.
