Hi everyone. 

I know I have been MIA for a very long time... and I would like to explain briefly the reason for said absence:

As some of you may already know (at least those of you who have been following me for the better part of 7 or more years) I lost my mother to Lung Cancer back in early November of 2006. It was devastating and it took both my family and I a very long time to recover from the loss. It was... difficult. But with the support of my family (my dad especially) I was able to move forward with life and eventually get back to doing the things that gave me joy. I took on a handful of commissions and completed a couple of them. But unfortunately I was not able to complete all of them before my family and I again received another crushing bit of news; in late 2010 my dad was diagnosed with stage 3 Colon Cancer. I couldn't believe it. It had only been 4 years since my mother's passing... It was too much, too soon. We fought it for the better part of 2 years and at one point I honestly thought we were going to beat it back. But the effects of chemotherapy and other factors took a serious toll on my dad's body and eventually we came to a point where there was nothing more the doctors could do to help us. He passed away last April of 2012. Needless to say... it was an impossible loss. I honestly do not think I could have survived it if it weren't for the constant support and love of my family and friends. 

I have been taking life one day at a time since then and do my best not to take on more that what is necessary. Working, keeping house, paying bills... you know, the inescapable show that must go on... and on.

So again, I am slowly making my way back to some semblance of normalcy in my life. And though some would consider a couple of past due commission to be an irrelevant thing in retrospect to all that has happened in the past 3 years... I can't help but feel the need to pay back what is owed of me. I may not have been in the forefront of my mind, but it has always been ON my mind. A since of unfinished business. A debt never repaid. So I'm taking this time right now (while things are somewhat calm) to reach out to those of you who are still expecting commissions from me. If you are still interested in receiving artwork from me, I ask that you please resend all descriptions and reference pictures of the characters you requested to be drawn so that I may complete your commissions and get them out to you ASAP. I have since replaced my old computer after receiving the "blue screen of death" so I will be needing to redo them from scratch. If you are no longer interested, then I will be more than happy to reimburse you for the total amount originally paid for said commission. Either way would be fine; I just want to make things right with you guys. I may be unbelievably late (and that is an understatement)... But I would never ever want any of you to think that I simply took your money and skipped out on you! So please hit me up via my NOTES and I will get back you to straight away.    

Again, I hope you guys can understand and forgive me for my complete and total absence these past few years. Life is an incredibly unpredictable thing... and  though I cannot guarantee that there will be no further delays or upsets in the future, I can at least say that for the moment things are stable and I will do my best to square things away here first before I perform any further disappearing acts.

Thanks so much for your patience in this matter... 

Oh yes! And many thanks to those of you who sent me warm wishes and kind words via 'notes' and emails and letters... It really meant a lot to me and I hope to hear from you all again very soon.

xoxo

Felt like updating this journal, but my brain is drawing a bit of a blank as to what kind of stuff I could update it with. 2am isn't exactly a textually creative time for my noodle. So I guess I'll just list a short playlist of the last 11 songs that have been playing in the background, keeping me conscious while I sit at my desk posting and replying to comments. :D

And yes, I know; this journal will rock so hard... *ohh AM sarcasm*


1. Party man - Prince
2. Benny and the jets - Elton John
3. Red red wine - UB40
4. Paparazzi - Lady GaGa
5. International players anthem - UGK ft. Outkast
6. Single Ladies - Beyonce
7. Go ask alice - Jefferson Airplane
8. Furious Angels - Rob Dougan
9. Painted black - Rolling Stones
10. Analyze - Thom Yorke (from 'The Prestige' soundtrack)
11. Apologize - Timbaland ft. One Republic


Yay! That was fun wasn't it kiddes. And if it wasn't.... who cares! It's late and no one reads doofy journals like these, not really. It's mosr like skimming really... So if anyone wants to skim,be my gust. I'm turning in for the night. Laters ^^


Oh and P.S.  I am currently OPEN for commissions. Note me if interested.

Big thanks and hugs to :iconpixel-spotlight: for featuring my 'Stripy Kisses' pic and for recommending it to :iconkatmomma: for a DD. :cuddle:'s to them both. I lost the first DD I received for my ' Pains of PupSitting - BandW' a ways back when my account was hacked and my artwork was deleted. So it means a lot that I was able to get another for one of my more recent drawings. :thanks:

And thanks to everyone who commented and fav'ed! It would take me forever to thank each of you individually. So I'm going to do it the lazy-ass way and post my gratitude here instead. :aww: :heart:

Now onto the other half of this journal post:

After looking over all of the comments posted on my 'Stripy Kisses' deviation I noticed there were a couple of people who weren't too thrilled over my drawing. I'm not going to name names or go into details about it,because I feel that would be a waste of time and text space and it would only add more attention to things that I personally feel aren't worth dwelling on. I simply wish to clear up a few things here so I won't have to post a response elsewhere.

So yeah, just a few facts on how I view negative commentary directed at my artwork:


1.) Helpful/constructive criticism is and has always been welcomed and appreciated by me.

2.) Pointless and or extremely negative comments have and will continue to be ignored.

3.) I draw anthros because I enjoy drawing them. It does not mean that I am sexually attracted to the characters/animals that I draw. It in no way reflects my sexual preference whatsoever. If by chance some individual happens upon my gallery and wonders if I am one of 'those people' who want to and I quote "f*** animals", then my answer to you is NO. I do not. I'm not sure how anyone could confuse my work as being fetish-inspired, but I would like to think that it would take great deal more than a meager drawing of a male tiger with two digits in the waistband of a female tigress's shorts in order for someone to arrive at that conclusion. But for those of you who may have trouble figuring that out for yourselves... then I will spell it out for you.

I DRAW ANIMALS. I DO NOT WANT TO SCREW THEM.

4.) I understand that not everyone shares the same tastes for art or anything else for that matter. We are separate individuals with different likes and dislikes, and I am 100% cool with that. To each his own. But for those who find my particular genre of art distasteful or weird; then I ask that those people simply scroll up to the top-left corner of their browsers and click the 'Back' button, because this is not the gallery for them. Nothing here was draw for their approval; it was for mine, and others who share my liking for anthropomorphic artwork.

I am proud of the work I have done over the years. I do not care if some people dislike it. I did not draw it for them. I drew it for me. If you don't like what I make then hey, don't look at it. Period.

But for those who hate anthro art in general, but still managed to find something in my 'Stripy Kisses' pic worth taking the time to comment on then I say thanks for that. I'll take the good and leave whatever negativity that may surround it to the wayside.

If a person wishes to be an asshole, then that is fine by me sweetie. Just do it on your own page, okay. That way you can be free to hone your proficiency in asshole-ology without any of us pesky upbeat folks hanging around cramping your style. Its just good business man. It's groovy baby. Groovy. *snaps*

......


Okay! So I think that just about covers what I wanted to say here...

Oh wait! There's one more thing I wanted to say:

Contrary to what some may think - I personally do not feel that my 'Stripy Kisses' drawing was in any way overly sexual or extremely graphic in nature. I merely wanted to portray a sense of intimacy and warmth and love between the two characters. I didn't draw a freaky bedroom scene or outdoor area with filing pedestrians in the background, there are no condoms spilling forth from any pockets to be seen, no hardened nibblets peaking or bulging packages poking. I drew a kiss and two nestled digits. Whats the big deal in that? Is it really so shocking to see a male tigers fingers resting on hips, just barely inside the tops of his mate's (and I mean mate in the figurative sense) shorts? I mean, have we not at some point or another caressed a lover in this fashion?

And I drew them kissing because I wanted for once, to finally draw a realistic kiss between two anthros. I was tired of seeing the sucky-face kiss. I wanted to do something different, so I did. I'm not sure if it's the realism that grosses people out or what. But all I wanted was to draw something simple and romantic that looked nice... and maybe took a few folks back to a moment they may have spent with the one they loved. That's all wanted people to take from that piece. If it bothered anyone, well that wasn't my intention. We see things the way we want to see them. If anyone saw something bad in that... maybe that's what they wanted to see. I cannot change that, nor will I try to. It is what it is.

Again thank you all so very much for the positive feedback, kind words and helpful tips. It's been a while since I last posted anything new here. But hopefully I will be able to upload some new drawings sometime this month and in the following months to come.

Until then, you guys stay sweet. :hug:'s & :kiss:'s to you all!

Oh yes it is winter and i am shivering my tail off in this freakin' freezer box city! I mean come on, it's not even raining... I could tolerate this kind of weather if it was at least doing what it's supposed to be doing, but all I'm getting is chillies. Ack X0

Well that's all i can say for now; the real journal update comes later on... this is just a filler until then. :aww:

Oh.... and yay for the new year. ^^ Here's to hoping it's better than the last. *holds up cup of oolong tea* Cheers everyone!

My wolf feather painting, 'The Journey'</u> and my tiger painting, 'Lady's Fireflies' are up for bid on eBay. :)

I listed them a while ago, but I believe they will still be up for a couple more days yet. ^^ So if anyone is interested, just down this journal post to the area titled 'My eBay Auctions' visit the links there and bid bid BID! Um.....if you want. :aww:


On another note:

I've been working on trying to build a new website for myself on a new host site outside of critter.net. I lost my space there a ways back, which sucks oodles since it was a really nice spot and the monthly bill with dirt cheap. But right now I think the best place for the time being is a simple little free web host site that I can manage and update on a whenever kind of basis.

I'd found a few good hosts during my searches, but the one I settled on was a site called Weebly.com

It's a neat little place and thanks to the helpful software they offer to users, I've already gotten the layout down and few pages up (like commissions, a blog and a couple galleries) so hopefully I will have the full site up and running in... oh, another month or so? Who knows, maybe even sooner. :)

Will post a link when it's done. Til then...

I've been listening to a lot of old school jazz and funky swing music lately... mostly Nina Simone music, to be more specific. I LOVE that woman's voice! I have collected over 40 songs by her in this week past week alone and I still can't get enough of her. :aww: I wish I had gotten the opportunity to meet her in person before she passed... that would have been an amazing experience. Really. But since cannot, I'll just have to satiate myself with a growing iTunes collection of sweet Nina-licious tracks. ^^

And it was pretty darn good. ^^ Heath Ledger played a very convincing role as the Joker... the guy definitely seemed certifiable to me! lol But he was also very smart and calculating. If I had to use two words to describe the Joker in that movie, it would have to be "organized chaos". *nods* yep, that's it. I won't say anymore, because I'm sure some people here haven't gotten around to see The Dark Knight in theaters yet and I wouldn't want to ruin it for any of you! :)

So yeah, I thought it was good. Long, but good. Of course I wasn't too thrilled about the whole having to wait in line for an hour to see the thing... nor was I jumping for joy when some dope at the theater sounded a false fire alarm just before the movie started (which caused a lot of people to loose their good seats mind you), but as a way of compensating us for our troubles we were all given a free pass to come back and see another movie of our choosing on them. So that kind of made up for it. :boogie: Everyone in the theater applauded, patted out ticket stubs and settled in for our 2hr 45min flick.

And to think I was gonna wait until next weekend to see the movie. Glad I didn't. I really needed a break from work and now I have a 2 for 1v special. :) Coolios!

It is hot... very hot, and my tank-top is growing more translucent by the minute! Xo *fans herself with stack of printer pages* I'm gonna go grab a couple bottles of cold water from the fridge... one I'll use for drinking and the other... to press against the back of my heated neck! lol

I wonder who else is feeling the humidity right now. O.O

Just as the title states - I am re-uploading all 20 deviations that were deleted from my gallery last month when my account was hacked. Oi, not exactly something that I was looking forward to doing... but since DA was unable to restore them for me, the task is left up to me complete. *shrugs* It's not so bad really. I'd made a list of all my most recent submissions, so it's been fairly easy putting things back in place. :) I only wish I had saved the descriptions for those deviations as well! The majority of the deleted pics were drawn way back in 2006 and 2007, so it would be darn near impossible to remember and re-type those same descriptions. O.O So if some of my re-uploads are lacking  adequate narrative, please excuse it! I was never really good at those things anyways... :XD:

Yep, DA helped me reset my password and now that I have my REAL account back I couldn't be happier. :aww:

BIG thanks to all of you who sent notes and comments to DA's help desk on my behalf... and for all of your kind words of support during -- what I felt -- was one of the LONGEST 7 days of my life! lol

It sucked not being able to log into my own account for once... and having to sit around day after day and watch as some idiot repeatedly invaded my personal space, deleting my deviations and doing god knows what else...*sighs*  Yeah, it just outright sucked. :dohtwo: But it wasn't so much the erasing of the artwork from my gallery that bothered me... hell, every drawing I ever uploaded onto DA is saved on my computer and backed up on disk. No, what really bothered me was the fact that I was losing all the comments and favorites I had gotten on those deviations. I valued every one of those comments and to see them get erased like that hurt me a lot more than I thought it would.

*shrugs* But hey, at least I'm back where I belong. ^^ I don't really know what the process is for un-deleleting artwork here on DA, but I'm going to see if I can get them to restore those 15 deleted deviations. I was told that it can be done, so hopefully everything will be back in place within the next couple of weeks. :)

*crosses fingers*

In the meantime I'm going to see if I can talk to Yahoo! and see if they can restore the stolen email accounts back to me. I know they that they are free accounts and that they are easily replaceable. But I don't want that hacker to have ANYTHING that belongs to me... not even a free email addy.

OK! Gotta go post this journal entry on my :a href="moonkitten85.deviantart.com">MoonKitten85 account now so everyone there will know that it's cool to post here again. ^^

Chuffs for now!

Where does it go on the weekends?! I swear, it goes by so fast sometimes... I blink twice and it's Monday all over again. >.< lol

*shrugs* Well, at least it was nice and sunny out today. I am soooo glad it's spring. FINALLY. I don't do wintertime man.... winter sucks. And it sends my heels and sandals into serious depression. :tears:

Chuffs for now!

K, so earlier today on the drive back home from the grocery store my dad tells me that president "what's his face" (I know his name, it just pisses me off when I say it so I don't >.<) is supposedly going to start issuing out $600 checks to the american citizens this upcoming may to help stimulate the economy.

Naturally, my first reaction to this shocking - yet pleasant news was "He's gonna do what?! O.O".

Needless to say it put a nice little cool-aid smile on my face. :D But I find this sudden act of generosity on the pres's behalf a tad bit suspiiiciooous! lol I'm guessing there's some sort of catch to this thing. But I'm not sure what that catch may be atm? I'm hoping this is genuine... cause god knows we could all use a little extra cash in our pockets/wallets/ purses.... shoes. :XD: But I can't help my skepticism.

I guess I'll believe it when that $600 check is sitting pretty *pats left hand* right here. *nods* and the first thing I'm gonna do after I deposit that sucker is run my little striped booty over to the nearest Blick art supply store where all items are 50-70% off and prisma pencils fall into my basket like sweet candy-coated raindrops from the skies.... at an amazingly low discount price. =^.^= lol


Chuffs for now!

Ok, I know this is like three months late, but I still wanted to give a quick thanks to both :iconcooley: for featuring my "Pains of Pup-Sitting" pic as a Daily Deviation and to :icontemiree: for recommending it. :D

Oh! and while I'm in the "thanking" mood, I would also like to thank all the peoples who fav'ed and commented, not only on my DD pic (though, I still can't believe how many of you fav'ed that one thing!!! O.O), but also on all of my other deviations as well. ^^ You guys have been so kind to me over the years and I want you all to know that even though I don't reply all of the time, I really do appreciate every single comment, fav and crit (even the harsh ones >.>....sometimes lol) that I have received during my stay here at DA.

It's feels so good knowing there are people out there who enjoy looking at my artwork and are inspired, in some way, by what they see here in my gallery to want to go off and draw/paint/create something of their own. ^^ *sighs*  I get the warm&fuzzies just thinking about it, you know. :aww:

Eek! I still can't believe I got that DD you guys. Lol I mean, I may not spend a lot of time on DA nowadays... and may not be prone random burst of giddiness and poorly choreographed dance numbers. But you can better your sweet sweet cinnabuns that when I found out that someone had given me a DD, I squealed louder than a 4yr old high on pixie-sticks and bubble gum ice-cream at a "Dora the Explorer" concert! >.<

Yep. That's right folks, I did the cabbage-patch... in class. In public. I had no shame that day.... >.> lol


Chuffs for now! =^_^=

Omg it is so late right now...or is it early? *thinks for a second, shrugs* beats the hell out of me. lol I know I need to take my tired self to bed... But my music from my iTunes in flooding through my comp speakers, I have a whole half-cup of oolong tea left and I am in the drawing-ZONE damnit! >.< I-I don't want to lose this feeling, you know? T_T

*sighs* screw it! I need sleep man... If I don't get at least 6hrs of rest I'll wake up groggy, someone's gonna come knocking on my door and I'll probably end up snapping their head off or something equally violent. O.O So yeah...*raises finger in air* to bed I go!....yep. *crawls off to bed*

Chuffs for now.

Yeah, my little sister just joined DeviantART, so I thought I'd post a quick journal entry and give her an offical welcome to the potential madness that is DA. :D

:iconshadowthief91: <---- Stop by and say hi! She doesn't have anything up right now, but she's workin' on some pics as we speak, so hopefully she'll have something up soon. Her little comic strips are hilarious and she is quite a character herself! :grin:'s

*Points a finger* If you're reading this Brat: FIX YOUR SCANNER, DAMN IT!!!!!!!! ...Okay. Love ya! lol ^.^

Chuffs for now.

I'm sorta kinda thinking about taking up digital commissions again. It's been a while since I've actually done them and if enough of you guys are interested and post a reply to this journal entry then I'll go on ahead a open back up for them. Tell me what you want and I'll note you some prices. ^_^ Sorry folks, I will not be doing any traditional art or feather paintings right now; those thingers take a bit more time than I actually have nowdays, so... yeah. Digi's only people. :)

OK's. Peace out. *curls under her heating blanket and falls asleep*

Chuffs for now.
