Fall semester of 2017 is in full swing and there is a lot of news to report.
First, I am pleased to announce the 6th anniversary of the Wolfsjourney DeviantArt blog. It's been an incredible journey to reach this milestone. It has been a journey filled with ups and downs, hills and valleys. All the same, I appreciate everything that has happened: with the site, the people that helped me when I first started, the beautiful artworks that are on here, and most importantly, you, the viewers. I am grateful to all of you who look through my page, and my art, every day. Although the name and artworks on here are much different than 2011, the main vision is clearer, bolder, stronger, and more forward-looking. Through good times and bad, DeviantArt has been supportive of my creative endeavors and it is perhaps my greatest inspiration to pick up art as a professional.
I made a lot of personal sacrifices to maintain this site, especially during the difficult times, in spite of mental and physical illnesses, and blood, sweat, tears; all done in the pursuit of failure and success to keep this dream alive. It took a lot to stay strong through migraines, depression, self-doubt, and social anxiety. I have walked to the edge, and come back from it a stronger person. I am someone else. I am something else.
As I look upon everything that has taken place since I moved to Saint Cloud some six-plus years ago, I am amazed at the progress that has been made. Things that maybe a couple years ago I never expected to be able to do, or equipment I dreamed of having are all a part of my life now. I am extremely grateful and blessed to be able to do this, and I will never forget about the people who helped me.
As of this May, I became engaged to the love of my life, and I will be proud to be wed to her next May. She completes me, helps me focus and keeps me grounded. Her patience and strength have helped me overcome many obstacles in the past two years. Every day she helps me to grow.
As of August 31, I joined the SCSU Student Graphic Design Association and assumed the role of Lead Designer. I will be helping to rebuild their organization, and gain valuable career experience that will drive me as I grow into my professional career path. It's a challenge I've quietly prepared for.
As of this semester, I will have three semesters remaining, on a timeline for graduation in Spring 2019. I expect to post screenshots of my work and finished, polished works during semester breaks.
No matter how bad things have gotten, there has always been something that has put me back on the right path. Some things are made to happen for a reason. Art has given me that purpose, that gift, that reason.
Thanks for all your support and I look forward to sharing more with you soon.

Donald Trump sucks. I hope to never be anything like that man in my lifetime. Build a wall (in front of Trump Tower). Werewolves are my favorite mythological creature. That's why I draw them more than any other kind. Ice cream is wonderful. Ice cream is BAE. (Before All Else) I like pookas (rabbits), foxes, puppers, and doggos.
Works in Progress
I am heavily considering participation in Inktober 2017. The last two Inktober events have yielded new and much better artworks, and this channel will be explored again this year. All work in progress projects in queue are on hold until winter break (see sheet). I will be using a new journal format from now on that will look similar to this.
I also donated to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. I hope that many others will do the same, as these people are being evacuated from perhaps the most dangerous storms in modern history. I have friends on the Eastern seaboard and I pray for their safety.
Advice and Recommendations
Never give up. Life always finds a way.
I personally recommend the Rocketbook Everlast notebook. See here:
I also personally recommend Pilot Frixion pens. See here:
RIP Chester. You fought your demons for so long, and helped people overcome theirs. Your music, your life, your family, and your legacy will carry on. Linkin Park got me through some tough times when I was a teenager, and to hear of the news that he passed was very sad.
RIP Chris. You paved so many pathways in music, and you will be deeply missed. Your music, your life, your family, and your legacy will carry on. This is the song that helped me start over after everything went so terribly wrong.
To those we have lost in our lives, may your spirits stay strong through us. May we carry on their love and legacy. Love trumps hate. #resist
I'm a third year graphic design major at SCSU. I work a super 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 as an artist and a human being.
