Mr. Mimsy is pleased to meet you!
If you'd like to see more of him, this is the place to go.
I'm just another someone trying to become a professional illustrator. I'm also prone to daydreaming and cuteness overloads.
stories, penguins, DIY crafts, maps, walking, coffee, black ink trails on white paper, cute fluffy animals, reading, color of late afternoon sunlight, imagining things, people.
health issues, malice and discrimination, close-up images of insects, doing housework, being rushed.
What can you expect to see in my gallery?
Well, I mostly draw cute animals and imaginary creatures or illustrate stories, but from time to time you can expect more serious and thoughtful subjects, as well as a few of my own stories, poems and comics.
If you'd like to ask anything about anything, or just say hi, please feel free to send me a note!
I can’t believe I actually managed to skip a month with the watcher feature. I’m so so sorry, but I’m having less and less free time to spend on deviantART. Which is good (because I have lots of stuff going on for me), but also bad because I’d really like to hang out here more often.
Anyway, the feature is up again, and you can apply! To do so, just leave a comment on this journal, saying that you’re applying. The deadline is February 27th (next Friday), when I’ll announce the winner. The winner is chosen randomly, using list randomizer at random.org.
The rules are very simple:
you have to be my watcher
if you have already won a monthly feature, you cannot apply again
if you win, you have to be okay with your art being featured. Please don’t change your mind in the last moment.
Features so far:
Monthly Watcher Feature - LobensteelAnd the first monthly feature goes to Lobensteel!
Lobensteel is our new deviantART collegue; he's only been here for a month and he already has many interesting works to show! He draws very imaginative traditional art, as you will see.
I have asked him some questions and here's what he said about his work and himself:
You're fairly new to DeviantART; how did you decide to join and how do you like it so far?
"Long story...I used to draw all the time as kid and then stopped. Recently my girlfriend bought some used alcohol markers for me a few months ago because she new I used to draw. Then I started drawing again and wanted to improve and get some feedback so I joined. Everyone has been really nice so far and there's so much amazing art. I didn't know that there were so many amazing artists out there. I really love it and wish school and work weren't so busy so I could draw some more."
What's the best part about draw
Monthly Watcher Feature - MoonyMinaI’m so sorry for taking so long to post this feature! I had lots of other things to do, and I’m the worst with managing my time. I’ll work on that, I promise.
Today I’m presenting you MoonyMina, the amazingly versatile fellow deviant. Seriously, go take a look at her gallery; you’ll find all kinds of art - there are drawings, photos, knitting, paper and cardboard items, painted T-shirts, Playmobil, upcycling, stitching and sewing... It’s a wonderland! It has been difficult to select only a few from vast array of her works, but we somehow managed it together.
So, here’s a little bit about all the mediums she uses, in her own words:
“I've knitted and drawn for as long as I can remember... As a kid, I lived with my Granny a lot. She taught me how to knit and she had coloring
Monthly Watcher Feature - SiljaazI’m so late with the feature this month (bad Penguinity, bad! )... I apologize for the unfortunate delay, and I present you Siljaaz!
She is a very talented young artist, and also my friend, so I’m extremely pleased I can present her work here.
Siljaaz draws and paints in traditional media only; her usual themes are animals and imaginary creatures. She makes lots of ACEOs, and I absolutely have to show you these little gems.
When asked where does she get all these ideas from, she humbly responds: “Umm... I dunno. I get them from my head? XD And well, music inspires me a lot (I just can't draw without it), and also other people's artwork and nature.”
That's it, good luck and lots of hugs to everyone!
Aaaaand random.org has spoken, we have a winner!
It's Paintwick! Congratulations! Many thanks to all who participated.
The feature will be up soon, stay tuned!
