This is kind of a cute idea, and I apparently joined DeviantArt in 2004, so it's the ten year anniversary for me!

I remember that I joined right at the beginning of college, and the first few devinations were things from one of my old sketchbooks. Though I've always drawn as a hobby, it wasn't until I had my own laptop and scanner that I was able to share things with others. For a time, everything was a scan of traditional art, since I didn't have any serious graphics programs or a tablet.

That all changed in summer of 2006, when I bought myself a graphire 4 tablet and a copy of MangaStudio 3. I finally had a way to make the kind of art I'd always wanted to. Things started off rough and unskilled, and over the last several years they've grown...less terrible, haha.

While I still have quite a ways to go and many, many things to learn, it's been fun keeping a record of my progress here on DA. Because I'm pushing 30 and a sentimental person as it is, I'll continue to use DA in the future as a convenient way to see my growth as an artist over time. It's fun to go back and read the descriptions I put for certain pieces, to remember creating them, to see old comments from friends. It's like a digital time capsule that keeps expanding as I move forward in life.

Sometimes I like to look over previous ideas I've had for stories or comics, and see if I can't update or rework them into something now.

Though I'm not active on DA like some people are, there are some very wonderful folks that I've watched (and/or have watched me) that have been such an inspiration and encouragement. Thanks to all of you!

Normally I'm much more long-winded about things like this, but I'm trying to get ready for a festival tonight in my town and a vacation to Hawaii tomorrow. If you're reading this, I hope you have a wonderful day, every day, for the rest of your life!~

Yeah, I'll probably keep going with them. I have other webcomic story lines going now too so I'll probably throw a pokmon one in here or there.
