Dear Viewers,

I am proud to announce that this blog has now reached its four year anniversary as of September 9th! It's been a challenging and rewarding last four years, to be sure.

This all started in a dorm room four years ago. At the time all I had for drawing materials were a clipboard full of copy paper and a basic #2 pencil, so I bought the best sketchbook I could afford and got to work. Admittedly, the first works I produced were crap. It wasn't until I began to draw on my own that I noticed how much I needed to improve. I had drawn a fair amount for art classes and done some graphic design and photography work in high school so I had somewhat of a base to go from as I began. I was in a time of transition, being newly minted as a college student with high ambitions, and not exactly knowing where I wanted to go with it.

Through what was pretty much an accident I found deviantART and got to see some of the world's best contemporary art. I fell in love immediately, and four years later, here I am. While I may not have completed my journey of transitioning to be a professional, I am now fortunate enough to have my own studio in my apartment. I have the privilege now to go about doing the work that I saw myself being one day able to do back then. I have more resources and learning materials available to go about it then I ever had before.

I consider myself married to my work and see art as being my lifelong passion and am committed to make the best possible art that I can, understanding that my ability will take time to catch up with my ambition.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, I have redesigned and slimmed down my gallery and profile. I have changed things around so my favorite pieces are first and foremost to all viewers. This consolidation had been in planning for some time.

I would also like to reopen for request and commission work soon as well as beginning to post some new work that is a continuation of the mythical beast series. I'll post more information on this as it becomes available.

Once again thank you all for your generous support, pageviews, favorites, comments and criticisms. I deeply appreciate it.

Love,

Donnie

I'm a third year graphic design major on hiatus [returning fall 2016 to SCSU]. I work a part time job in retail and make nice arts on the side. I strive to always be learning my craft. I work with multiple mediums to create compelling works in various genres. I keep my art as free as possible because I like giving back to the deviantART community. My goal is to become an accomplished and successful artist. I try to make art that expresses how I feel about life and what I believe in. I am working hard to be the best I can be.
