Statistics 200 Deviations 2,301 Comments 16,127 Pageviews


Hey guys! Time for my bi-yearly journal entry. I recently uploaded a series of paintings, which I have compiled into one deviation called 'Tiega you're a Star'. Check it out! Give me feedback! Lets nerd out about turtles! But besides shamelessly promoting myself on my own page about my own paintings that are months late, I have a bit of a problem.

Recently I moved to Arizona, to a town called Tempe, right outside of Phoenix. I have a lot of time to sit and reflect on what I can, and should be doing with my life. A big part of my moving down here was to focus on my art and get better with my craft. But I am in a huge slump. I don't know what to paint, when to paint, or even if I have the will to paint anymore. Arizona is very lonely, since I've moved away from all my friends, family, and everything I've ever known, to a town I'd never heard of, to a state I'd never even visited. I feel stuck! I need help! And by help I mean a kick in the butt, or several kicks in the butt, to help me snap out of my slump. It feels silly to ask for help but there it is. 

If you have any ideas of stock pictures or deviations you think look cool, or if you'd like me to continue a series or start a new one, whatever it is, please let me know. I'd love to see some interest, I know it'll help me feel like 'I can do it' enough to actually do it. 

Be humble for you are made of earth.
Be noble for you are made of stars.
Mantain focus
And don't believe in the hocus pocus

I really liked it. I never saw the animated movie of Animal Farm, but I read the book when I was younger, and like most of his works it really stuck with me, in a disturbing-but-fascinating sort of way. Is your piece based off of anything you've seen? Or did you think it up yourself

Yeah! It made me go to the kitchen to get a lemonade with ice, it's pretty much summer heat here in CA. Good work

Thank you very much! :) (Smile) 
I am very glad to hear it! It's nice that you like this summer flyer! In the near future I plan to do some more summer flyers I am a dummy!

Gonna keep with the fruity theme? 

I think fruit says summer more than palm trees, suns, waves, or any other traditional icon.
