I am comming back, I swear. NOT April fools joke.Hello all.
Sorry have not been around for such a long time. Things here have been less than optimal I am afraid.
I am very grateful for all the visitors and watches, I am very grateful for all the comments from friends. I am especially grateful to see art being made with the stock I placed.
I hope to be back in another month or so, making more art, and enjoying all of yours.
belated one yearWow. I have been a deviant for a year now...or so I am told. I have been busy, VERY busy. I am working as a full time visiting professor, working 20-30 hours at a hardware ( DIY ) store, continuing my freelance design activities, and trying to start up my own business selling my journals. That's 4 jobs.
I am sick - not enough rest, and tired; working way to hard. Artistically, my creative process has been limited recently to my theater designs. Last weekend I chaperoned a trip to New York City and got to do some photography. I hope to post some of them soon! Even as I type, we are getting ready for a run-through of a show whose set I designed - pictures of that to come soon as well I hope.
I am truly sorry to all of those friends I have here, or at least had, before my extended leaves. I hope that once Mid December rolls around I will have some quantity of time to spend on "non-business" art. I am sorry I have not commented on your works. Please rest assured that I have thou
current eventsWhat is going on with me? well... I just got rejected from a job I interviewed for in Pittsburg Kansas. ~shrug~ I wish them well. It would have been a very big promotion for me, but once again I get the "fucked over stick." It would have been weird going from University of Pittsburgh (PA) to Pittsburg State University (KS) anyway. I had such hopes; but as a colleague of mine used to say - "wish into one hand, shit in the other, see which fills up quicker for you."
I leave in a week for Juniata College to do a lighting design for their professional theatre company "The Gravity Project." I am very excited for this. When I return we go right into technical rehearsals for Urinetown:The Musical. As such, I am working against the clock at my home university to get the set done before I leave. With some luck there will be new, wonderful, professional imagery coming soon--or some good horror stories. Either way, should be a good time.
I am also eager to resume work on my tarot deck.
Winter IDA new, "real" journal entry will be forth coming in a day or two. In the meantime please help me out by voting for which ID you think I should use
or Number two
Disappointing end, but slow promising start.Sorry I have not been on recently. To catch up and be brief, I made out like a bandit for Christmas. I was given a new camera by my parents - which I REALLY wanted. It is a 15 mega pixel SLR, My first one. (as opposed to my 8 meg cannon power shot.) My friends all pooled together and gave me art supplies I desperately needed (supplies were running low.)
Unfortunately, I came down sick Christmas day. I had a sore throat for a day or 2 prior so was not surprised - but still sad. I was just too tired and miserable to work on any projects, especially since my "studio" is in the most under heated part of the basement. It got worse when, on the night of new year's day, I became VIOLENTLY ill and even spent 2 nights sleeping on the floor of the bathroom because I was too weak to stand, much less get up and go back and forth from the bed -ICK!
I have gotten better now, just in time for the new semester to start, thank goodness. But it means the 2 weeks I had planned on having to wor
...yeah...so?well. I have completed my "real life" duties for the semester and am watching the approaching the holidays with my usual sense of dread and malicious intent. While everyone I know will be headed out with/ to their BF/ GF/ Partner to one or other parents' place and spending time nestled together with each other, I will be in my cold basement, alone with my art supplies--assuming I am sober and conscious. Have I mention how much I hate the f---ing holidays? Starting now through valentines day (feb 14) is one long "sucks to be single" fest for me. It is like having the flesh stripped from both arms, then having both arms stuck into a bag of salt. in case you are wondering I have ALWAYS been single for EVERY christmas, new years, AND valentines day that I have been alive. yeah, I know, "whaaaa- sucks to be you- get over it." In the words of...someone -"Cry me a river, build me a bridge, and get over it!"
On a different note. I am considering taking a break from DA when my subscription runs
Catching upwell. I am almost done. I have one more class to teach, a test to administer (and grade) then I am done until January - and looking forward to some well earned and deserved (if I do say so myself) time with my brushes, paints, and camera.
I have caught up with my messages - sorry to those i kept waiting. I now have 78 Deviations to sort through. I will try to comment on most of them, but it seems rather...improbable. So if you have submitted something in the past week or so and I have not replied, please do not think I have blown it off; I just have not had the time to give it that it deserves.
Thank you to those who checked out my website for my free lance theatrical design work www.johnteacher.com I appreciate the comments.
Well.. enough journaling I think, time for me to get back to the art!
Best wishes to you all.
AliveFirst I am excited to announce that my "professional" website is up and running. www.johnteacher.com Please feel free to visit and let me know what think either in e-mail or notes here.
The play I designed and my pottery show are both over, though I still have another day or 2 of long hard work.
I am also finally caught up with the notes, messages, and deviations I had waiting for me here. I was truly joyful to have them waiting and I am looking forward to more art from all of you.
As far as MY art goes. Tuesday is my first day off in over 2 months. I am planning on sleeping for about 37 hours - this from a guy who averages 4-5 hours a night of sleep. In fact I may move the bed to beside the refrigerator so if I DO wake up, hungry, I can grab a snack without getting out of bed before I fall asleep again! Lol. in any event. I have several projects waiting for me including the last 2 panels of my Enemy Within series, some stock textures and new (different) tunnels I photographed, some pa
ReturningTonight is opening night of "The Duchess of Malfi" and tomorrow is my potter show.
Life is calming down and I am trying to get my DAlife caught up as well. I have responded to most of the messages I had and am also working my way through the 30 deviations I had this week as well as posting some of my own.
Hope to see ya here soon.
Papyrus x Reader x SansPapyrus laughed eagerly and loudly as he and his brother Sans walked back to their stations.
“-And did you see how badly that human failed on my last puzzle?!It goes to show that I will be a great Royal Guard!NYEH HEH HEH!”Papyrus said, praising himself.Sans, who usually doesn’t leave his post (out of laziness) had to laugh also.”Is it really so hard to turn Xs into Os?” Sans chuckled.
As the Skelo-Bros neared Papyrus station, they noticed two little little legs squirming out as if they were stuck.Sans glanced over at the legs as if it was as usual as a hyper Lesser Dog, while Papyrus looked dumbstruck.”ANOTHER HUMAN?!”Papyrus yelled, more trying to get attention then being surprised.The small person automatically fell to the ground, fearfully clutching a flip-phone that had been given to her from her monster ‘guardian’.
Papyrus looked down upon the young girl as Sans merely stood back, completely cool.The girl, frozen with fear, lo
Doflamingo x Reader: Family Matters
There have been many things you have seen on Baby5’s face, but only rarely have you ever seen her looking glum. Most times you’ve seen her, she’s either exuberant, furious, or comically crying, depending on her “boyfriend” situation. Other than that, she was always relatively calm, with a slight smile.
“Little Miss, what has you feeling so down?” You walk up to her side, putting a hand on her shoulder.
“(name), I wasn’t expecting to see you.” She sighed, and then chuckled a little. “How many times have I told you to call me by my name? I don’t need to be called ‘Little Miss’.”
“I will continue calling you ‘Little Miss’ as long as I am a servant working here at the castle and you are considered Family by the Young M
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper
