Journal

Thank you

I just wanted to write a public Thank you to everyone who watches, comments on, favorites or purchases my work. I’ve been here for just over 2 years and I calculated that I’m watched by 1,125 people! Wow!

So thank you so much everyone for your continued support, it means a lot to me.
And I have a lot of upcoming photo projects in store for the new year that shouldn’t disappoint. :) I’m very excited to share them with everyone here on the Bubble.

Thank you all. ♥

Arachnophobia

So… does anybody else suffer from the dreadful fear of spiders?…

Here in Washington it’s spider season and I’ve already found 2 of them in the last 2 days. Just caught one that was moving really fast on my bedroom wall and flushed it down the toilet….

Just at the sight of them I freeze up, get goosebumps, start itching, twitching and start to semi hyperventilate. So it’s worse when I have to get rid of them myself…
I try and be fair and capture them with a glass and paper to put them outside…
but sometimes, I’m so horribly offended by their presence that if somebody is around I’ll ask them to take care of them for me (which usually means death for the spider).
This fat one on my bedroom wall just… really offended me. It seemed very jumpy and angry. I’m still horribly freaked out….. (partia

Confessions

I’ve left deviant art (temporarily I think) for so many different reasons…. and that’s why I keep posting more journals here. I don’t know where else I’m supposed to connect to in the online art world….. so this is about all I have right now. I write here when life and art collide for better or worse (or if I just need to get something out of my system)… tonight I don’t feel well at all. There’s acid in my stomach and a bad feeling in the back of my mind. There’s too much in my head to write about all of it…. so this journal isn’t as complete as it could/should be. But you people here read what I have to say and often have very thoughtful, caring, honest, creative and humble feedback.…

I’m so frustrated.
I didn’t write about what’s been happening lately here… because I just didn’t want to

I thought this was so inspiring....

Man invents machine to convert plastic into oil

I’m sharing this link on all my websites…. because people need to see it, share it and pass it on.

I wish governments and corporations weren’t so greedy. I know they wont change their ways, they wont listen, because they don’t care. All they care about is money.
If we all listened, perhaps adapted this idea… we could probably save the world or at least stop it from where it’s heading. Not to mention, solve so many social, political and economical problems.

I'm just curious...

How hot is it in Australia right now??

Or are your seasons opposite ours? I can’t remember actually….

I’m having a heat wave where I live and it’s 90 degrees (Fahrenheit)…
I’m dying! Lol. But I know it gets a lot hotter down under…

This is my future and it's ending one minute at a time.

I feel sick…
this oil spill is making me sick.
My government is making me sick……

We’re probably going to go to war with Iran soon.
No closure on Iraq. Because the Obama administration is the same as the Bush administration. Do you want the puppet on the left or the puppet on the right?

I have a hell of a lot more to say about it.
I’ve researched it.

They’ve dumped millions of gallons of the chemical Corexit into our water and air.
Some of it’s ingredients are: arsenic, mercury, cadmium, chromium, and cyanide.
Crops are dying, people are being hospitalized and hundreds of species are dying.
BP and the government don’t care. It’s all about money and power and greed and corruption.

There are about 7 billion people on the planet.

And nobody can seem to figure out how to stop any of this.

And this i

Random Art Feature

I did a couple Art Feature Journals a long while back and realized I hadn’t done any in a while. Here are Some random picks from my favorites. Enjoy.

And Again...

with the discriminatory RedBubble groups….

What the hell is wrong with being different, unique, creative, thinking outside the box, having alternative ideas, being unconventional….. wacky, wild, eccentric….

well that’s me. I guess I have a lot of RB groups I need to leave.
Because they wont have me.

Luckily there’s enough people here who understand where I’m coming from, that they welcome me to their groups.

Aren’t politics in Art just ridiculous.

A little frustrated

I’m starting to get a little bit frustrated with RedBubble. It doesn’t seem to be serving me much of a purpose in regards to exposure/sales…..

I hardly make sales and my work does indeed get views, but the problem is it doesn’t often get comments/feedback/favorites. It seems like I get featured a lot in groups, which is great… but I’d rather be making more sales or something.

I’m just frustrated. It bothers me when people look but leave.

I wonder if I need to upload more work… or if my work is (as I’ve suspected in the past) not the right kind for the general RedBubble audience.

new homepage....

I thought that RB wasn’t going to present the new homepage anymore? Since it kinda never happened. They tested it and then it went back to the old one and I never heard anything again about it. Does anyone know what’s up with that?

Out of Town

Hey everyone,

I will be out of town February 1st-10th and will not have internet access.
Just wanted to let you all know in case anyone tries to message me.

I’m going to California for Vacation. :)

Please Vote for Me in a Self Portrait Contest!

Hey everyone,

I’ve entered a Self Portrait Contest (rather late in the game).
There’s a grand prize award and there’s a peoples choice award. I don’t expect to necessarily win either.

But if you have a second, could you Click this link and vote for my portfolio

You’re voting for the Peoples choice award. The grand prize winner gets chosen by a panel of Judges.

Also… I don’t know why, but when I submitted my portfolio to this competition, I noticed my thumbnail images look real blurry and I’ve emailed the website to ask them about it. If it looks blurry to anyone, will you let me know?
I’m trying to see if it’s just a glitch in the website or what.

Thank You!!!

Thanks everyone, I know about the art theft

Thanks to the multiple people who’ve been concerned enough to tell me about the art theft of my work. I’m totally aware of it and was made aware of it a day or two ago.
My work is actually stolen a lot and usually posted on blogging websites or journal communities. Since it happens so often, I stopped trying to do anything about it a while ago because it’s really just a hassle. The only circumstance where I will take it very seriously, is if the person is distributing or trying to sell my work. Then that’s definitely not okay. But if people are just posting my work because they like it and want to share it, well that used to piss me off… but now I just shrug it off. A lot of these blogging websites are in languages I can’t read and I’ve no way of knowing how to contact the website. So I j…
