So I guess the first notice to new watchers is that I am a fan of terrible puns and jokes that are at least five years past being funny.
The last journal I penned on this site was also to deliver a broad thanks to a boatload of new watchers after a DD. While I do not consider Deviantart my main platform for sharing my work, I did grow up on this site (simultaneously publishing a lot of bad art and ignorant comments), and I never thought I'd get a Daily Deviation. Much less four. Holeh fishpaste. Thank you. Because there were 58+ of you, I had to once again abandon my classy habit of thanking new watchers personally, but you are appreciated.
As I've said, Deviantart is not my main hub. Don't misunderstand me: I check my messages and look at art here every day, but deviantart is not the only place where I draw and write. Therefore, this seemed a good time to shamelessly advertise my other online portals. Because so many of you recently decided you wanted to see more of my work, and there's a chance that some of you are interested enough to give the following links a looksie.
The glorious main website
Raconteur Raven: Essentially a sketch blog. Weekly sketches and scans of my graphite originals end up posted here. Weekly updates, and I do not re-blog much.
Facebook Page: Finished pieces and "big" updates. Essentially exactly what you'd get watching me here, but on facebook.
Twitter: I confess to possibly being the worst tweeter in the world so far as regularity is concerned, but I catch up with artist friends here all the time, so come say hello.
In general, I post a big new piece once a month. The combination of working on a bigger-than-average piece (which I will post by mid-August or die trying), and having taken a seasonal job as a drawing instructor did set me back the last couple of months, but I can promise fairly consistent monthly updates. "Little" updates (e.g. sketches, doodles, line drawings) are posted to the blog only.
I primarily use Deviantart to talk. So always, always let me know what you think if you've the time to say something.
