For watching, and all the great art that passes by my eyes. So many interesting people on DA. I have learned a lot about art from watching others.
I am grateful for the faves  and watchers and of course the comments. The sense of community is very strong here. 



Hyperspace studios  came about when Guy Aitcheson reinvented tattooing.   Guy gave me one of my first tattoos. it was a little seahorse.  Guy has guided me along the way giving great tips..  and he basically wrote books on color theory for tattoo artists.

Bernardumaine has told me that I should draw more from real things.
So I am going to practice drawing some "everyday" objects. I'm sure it will help me improve. it is almost like going back to school in a way.so I might have some rough sketches popping out here and there. my most recent one was a drawing of a squirrel that my cat killed :cry:

I used to be so good at just drawing what I saw in front of me.

I have known Beth for many years, she is a valiant supporter of human rights and the rights of Native Americans.

:thumb370280130:
Beth is a painter who has influenced me as well as in her actions. A painter who lives off the grid (meaning she lives in a yurt collecting rainwater, making wholesome food, grows her own veggies and steps up to any relevant cause worth discussing. This beautiful woman is an inspiration to all people on the planet.

Thank you for sharing our Heads and Bodies app with your group!
When I was a kid I played Exquisite Corpse with my Dad. Only we didn't call it "Exquisite Corpse" we called it "Heads and Bodies." Now I'm old and maybe wanted to relive my youth? Haha. My Dad and I teamed up to create a digital version of the game!
Deborah V. - as you pointed out, there's a real community here among the Surrealists on this site. With ECs, it's as much about community and collaboration as it is about art and creativity. I love that!
If anyone's interested, you can view some more twisted 2-person collaborations using the HB app on our FB page: www.facebook.com/HeadsAndBodie… <--check it out! :nod:

Thanks for all the faves dev watches and great comments.

With each new work someone shows me I get more of a feeling of community. The Surreal community is really the most important one to me. because it is about the unexpected, the fascinating, the dream and the dreamer. Do you ever wake up with such an amazing feeling that you have to think about your dream all morning and afternoon?

I try to keep that feeling with me.

Hello Surreal family!

the-surreal-arts desperately needs some new administrators, a new skin  and really new blood to help us keep running. HectorPineda has been running this group for several years now and  he needs to focus on his artwork. I will help but I cannot do it all either. We are looking for dedicated surreal artists who are willing to help moderate the group.

We will need someone to make a new skin
Someone who can code the donate box so we can have some donations to keep the group running.

the-surreal-arts has been the premiere surreal group in DA Lets not let it go. I will be donating all of my revenues from the prints I have sold here.  If you can contribute it would be a huge relief.

For the moment I am an administrator but I will need more people.


If anyone has any ideas bring them forward.

Thanks

Note me or send a message if you want to be a contributor to this  important and historic group

My depression has been a long one this time. I have not been able to function on many levels.  I hide in games when I should be drawing. I escape  escape escape.  Each time I play farmville or second life I regret each moment. It is a sort of auto-torture.  When I should be fulfilling my destiny as an artist, I am turning it into crap. but I am leaving those things behind. I just have a few obligations  and I am done.

Thanks for the friendships we all have cultured, the network of artists in DA is always so interesting.
I love recognizing people's style. :nod:

Thanks for encouraging me to paint digitally..i will , i promise that i will make a digital painting.
See what you do for me? you creative people....
It has been weeks since i was able to draw something. so i drew the surreal portrait of my old BF Richard Peterson.

anyway... i am grateful to be in this lattice of connected artists, bound together by similar interests.

thanks again...
