Hey folks! First, I'm sorry about the lack of activity and/or humerus shitposts over the past several months/year or two (or whatever you might be watching me for!). Secondly, I'm not leaving DeviantArt, but I am switching accounts. The reason being that I'd like to start trying to network as an artist a lot more, and to put it bluntly... this account frightens me (was that my imagination, or the collective justice-induced laughter of everyone I tried to "troll" over the years I just heard?). Anyway, in an attempt to clean this account up a bit, today I began the process of going back through eight years worth of DeviantArt forum posts, comments, and activity, and while hilarity ensued, I ultimately concluded that it was no longer possible to undo the toxicity of my late teens/early twenties that this account has endured. When I began this account I didn't think of this site as much of a networking tool, nor did I think so much of the... brilliant things I said would still be searchable so many years later (oh but I had some good times though).
So I'm starting "fresh" (it's actually a very old account I held onto, but back in the day it wasn't used much, so it's relatively untouched). I've archived my art, and I'm reuploading my favorite stuff to the new one. I'll be going through my watch list and re-adding artists and friends from this account to that one. If you stumble across my new account and want to re-favorite/watch stuff, by all means do so and I'll love you for it. I'm not going to link the account here though since I want to avoid these two accounts pointing to each other too much.
Note that this account probably won't totally die. I still might use it for forums from time to time. I may also post art to it at some point that I don't want to show up on my new/main account.
That's it for now, see you all around the site and interwebs.
