I want ANYTHING by damien-c... ANYTHING

6 Long Years...

Tue Oct 29, 2013, 6:23 PM

Can you believe I've been here for 6 YEARS?!?  I think I first accessed DeviantArt on a Dial-Up connection.

After finally getting myself to examine my mass collection of neglected internet bookmarks, I saw the lost and forlorn DeviantArt tab... I had forgotten completely that this site even existed anymore, given that the last time I was on here (roughly 2-3 years ago) it had fallen into one of those "ruts".  You know, the one where nobody posts anything you give a damn about, the big-name artists take a hiatus, and for awhile the "most recent" feed begins to look like a facebook equivalent...
DeviantArt is kinda like that one ex-girlfriend; no matter how many times you both quit talking, get heated, or completely abstain from speaking to each other, the universe somehow always brings you back together under unforeseen circumstances which admittedly, amicable & fond memories.  When I saw my profile today, which had been left untouched for years, I was utterly disgusted at what my previous level of acceptable quality was.  I immediately stopped all scheduled tasks for the rest of the evening, and cleaned out everything that was "old" and pointless at this point in time (eg. a Windows VISTA transformation pack... who the fuck wants that now.) and even changed my username from that prepubescent abomination I convinced myself to stick with for continuity sake.  Now I'm back, with an exciting new job in beautiful (depending who you ask) Los Angeles County as an EMT.  A far cry from my days as a lowly graphic designer and webmaster (what a joke title).  I hopefully now have enough stability in life, as well as expendable time to invest in returning to DeviantArt and crank-starting the vintage artistic engine that was, at one point, my mind.  
Expect to begin seeing a trickle of creativity out of this page, once again.  A big thanks to loyal followers and those who, for reasons i'll never understand, decided to follow me in my hay day of mediocrity.  You won't be disappointed. Again.  
I will be blown-away if anyone actually reads this journal... like actually stunned.

Thank You.
