If you'd like to know where I've been there are two versions of this story. You can decide which one is true.
I pricked my finger on an enchanted spindle and fell into a deep sleep. 12 months later I woke up to find my dA membership had expired some time ago and I had no points with which to renew it. Feeling defeated by the 10,000 messages in my inbox I ran off into the forest, fell down a rabbit hole and have been trying to climb up out of it ever since.
the second story:
I've been working, painting, drawing, taking photos, growing my hair, having my heart broken, working too much, getting sick and well again, raising a puppy, moving house (twice), melting in the summer heat and forgetting all my passwords. All this meant dA and GoblinStock had to sit on a dusty shelf somewhere in the back of my brain cupboard for a while. Until now.
By the way, I LOVE the mentions system so please feel free just to mention me if you want me to see that you've used my stock. I am quite happy for this to be the only notification you send me!
Not much has changed as far as my ideals go. Use what you want however you want to use it. I love to see new talent emerging in the photomanip category.
