Interests
This one looks interesting, so here we go ...

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

Since 19 April 2008, 7 years, 3 months, 19 days, several hours, some minutes, a few seconds, loads of micro-seconds, tons of nano-seconds, scads of ... ok, down boy down, they get the idea!

2. What does your username mean?

Something slightly rude in a foreign tongue. ;-)

3. Describe yourself in three words.

Probably Quite Insane

4. Are you left or right handed?

Yes, but my right is the more experienced side.

3. What was your first deviation?

This little gem that took on a life of it's own, 297 pages 130,000+ words. 2 Sides to A Story - RJ 1-9INTRODUCTION - THE INCIDENT
Hello Torvac,
How is my favorite Panda? I must apologize; it’s been way too long since last I wrote to you. I can hear you now, wondering just what this is all about. Your worst pupil, writing for advice? Actually, I am.
I did something incredibly stupid yesterday; I walked into Freja’s room without knocking first. I know; I know, at half a ton I’m not silent when I walk, especially on stone tiles, my claws make a terrible racket. How could she not have heard me? That was stupid of me to say, of course she heard me, she didn’t expect me to just walk in. She was half-dressed, which didn’t bother me; I’ve seen mammals in their fur before. I saw that hideous scar on her arm left from when the Hyena slavers branded her as a pup, but there was something more written underneath it. Something I couldn‘t quite make out. The scar was plainly visible, the area had been shaved clean of fur, and this still baffles me. Why was she doing


4. What is your favorite type of art to create?

Three dimensional, I like building things.

5. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

Sculpting in marble. I was somewhere in the neighborhood of 22 when I saw Michaelangelo's "Pieta". It had a major influence on me, nothing religious, just the awe at the borderline unbelievable detail he put into the stone. 

6. What was your first favorite?

Can't really remember, but after losing a bunch when artists deleted them or deactivated their accounts I started saving them to an external hard drive. I presently have somewhere in the neighborhood of 100,000+ collected on anything and everything that strikes my fancy.

7. What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?

Yes.

8. Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?

Depends on the genre, style, type, category, pedigree, mood I'm in. ;-)

That said, some of the folks that have gone on to be very good friends and artists I admire.

:iconspoopty23:  My ethereal daughter and a great artist.  She's done several fantastic commissions for me and is in the market to do more, stop by and say hi.
:iconforgetsanity:  Great artist, has been doing commission pieces for me and puts up with my nuttiness. ;-)
:iconkbbarco-91:  And yet another great artist who's done several commission pieces for me.  She's looking for commissions too.
:iconruulette:  Gone way too long from here, where are ya kiddo?
:iconwafflestoo:  Awesome storyteller, great artist, fellow old sweat and is really great for putting up with me. ;-)
:iconsturmensky:  An avid storyteller who's stood the test of getting into philosophical discussion with me. :XD: 
:icontalon-serena:  Another awesome storyteller, awesome artist and Free Spirit!
:iconhattonslayden:  Awesome storyteller and artist, has done breathtaking commissions of my characters, reads my silliness and gives me pointers.  Thanks good sir!

There's literally several hundred more folks, my apologizes for not listing you all. 

9. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

I've met a handful of dA'ers in person and had a wonderful time visiting. I also enjoy the company of those I've yet to meet face to face.

10. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

The friendships and comradery I've found over the years.

11. What are your preferred tools to create art?

A typewriter or a good word processor.

12. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

Wherever I happen to be at the moment. I carry a small notebook and pencil for those "flashes of brilliance" that aren't going to be reachable memory in the next 60 seconds to write them down. Of course, sitting in a hot tub by candle light with Bach thundering on the stereo is a good spot too. :XD:

13. What is your favorite DeviantArt memory?

The friendships, laughs, occasional tears and folks I've met here.

Hey there old friend. It's been a while. I know I haven't done anything with this new account, but frankly for me DA just isn't a good place to be anymore. I'm sure you've seen or at least heard of all the stupid things the admins have pulled over the past 3 years, so I'm mostly on Tumblr now (which also has its share of issues but I have more of a reason to stay there). I hope you are well, regardless!

Things have been going well - seem to fluctuate between "normal" and "towers, towers of paperwork!" pretty randomly though. Incidentally, you can count me in on the whole missing-our-unscheduled-randomness!

How about yourself? I trust the lunacy keeps coming strong?

:hugs: Thank you for joining Authors-Club!   We are so glad to have you join our group and adding our work to our collection! 

On behalf of the group, here's just a little bit of information as to what we're about! :


-- We support the literature community of Deviant Art by creating a safe, creative atmosphere for artists to come together and make connections with one another.

-- Are you a little lost as to how to get involved in the writing side of DA? Take a look at this helpful guide, How to get started with the Lit Community.  It's got some wonderful advice and has helped many a deviant get their feet wet, so to speak, in the lit world!

-- If you'd like to submit to the Critique Folder, please be sure to check out  this journal to see our guidelines!

-- Before you start submitting, please familiarize yourself with our Submission Rules! This is just to make sure everyone's on the same page as far as contributing work goes, and helps keep the group running smoothly!

Again, thank you so much for joining our club! If you need anything at all, do not be afraid to ask! Wither it be about our club, or even about the going on's in Deviant Art!  

I hope that you enjoy this group and if at any time you have questions, concerns, or ideas please contact me jackofalltrades0097 , or any of the other admin!  We're here to help!
