I love seeing the world in all of its glorious and wretched beauty. I love sharing that view with others. That is what got me interested in photography. With a single photo, the beauty of Gaia can radiate. With a single photo, the good and evil of men can be seen apart from one another and a part of one another.

I also dabble in drawing, painting, ceramics, woodcrafting, leather working, etc. etc.. If it keeps my hands busy and my mind sharp, I enjoy it. I'm self taught in my arts, having no formal training or education. My mind and body demand that I keep busy, therefor I am always learning new things and experimenting with new ideas and art forms.


On this page, you may also find some work that my friends have done for Algeri Arts!

Make sure to check us out on facebook at www.facebook.com/AlgeriArts

Ello! It has definitely been a while since I've done one of these. So... here we go!

I have a bunch of artists on deviantART whose work has absolutely amazed me! That being said, we shall start with artist features!


Artist Features

The Kayasen

The first artist being featured in this journal is TheKayesen! This artist's use of paper and pencil, ink and imagination creates works of art so mind-bending and detailed that it's hard to put any words to! With "work in progress" updates, their work is fun to watch develop and come to life.


Crow-Man's-Land. (finished) by thekayesen     #IfYouDontReadItAtleastFeedIt by thekayesen     Guru bhrama. Edit.  by thekayesen     what do you see? by thekayesen     Multi-personality-disorder by thekayesen


Natalia Drepina

The next artist feature is Natalia Drepina! This artist makes right proper use of the human form to create powerful, thought provoking images. With a sort of melancholy style to her work and a softer style of lighting, her gallery is one more than worth perusing! 


In the autumn hands by NataliaDrepina     Snake's Bride by NataliaDrepina     Slough of Despond by NataliaDrepina     

Mature Content

Lips by NataliaDrepina
     Death by NataliaDrepina


Welanga

The featured artist is Welanga! This artist produces some beautifully detailed drawings! Using mainly graphite and charcoal, she produces amazingly realistic shading in her work! I absolutely love her Skyrim fan art pieces!


Spriggan by Welanga     Warrior by Welanga     Hunter's prerogative by Welanga     Broken memories by Welanga     Sunrise by Welanga


OfftoErebor

The next amazing artist in this feature is Erika (OfftoErebor)! This artist has a fine eye for the smaller members of the natural world! Don't let the nature pieces throw you off, though. She has an amazing talent all the way around when it comes to photography. Be sure to check out her gallery to see some incredible stuff!


And Off I Go by AnxiousPhotographer     Colorado Sky by AnxiousPhotographer     Dance With Me by AnxiousPhotographer     Lookin at Me? by AnxiousPhotographer     The Big Bang by AnxiousPhotographer


Shannon Smith

The next incredible artist in this feature is Shannon Smith (firefox2171)! This is an incredibly well rounded artist. She produces various types of photography, digital art, and drawings that absolutely reel you into them. I must say, I am a HUGE fan of her portrait work!


Remember the fifth of november by Mythic-Fox     Revertebration by Mythic-Fox     Sound of silence by Mythic-Fox     Overburdened (scan) by Mythic-Fox     Oh deer, what have we here? by Mythic-Fox


Special Thank you!

I just had to drop another special thank you on Zoey for providing so much honest and helpful feedback over the past few months! I've been doing a lot of work that I'm very unsure of lately, and and with her consistently positive and helpful feedback I've felt decent enough to keep on keeping on. Make sure you check out her page!


 The Girls 3 by JuvenileMoppet     verdreht 9 by JuvenileMoppet     Skitter 2 by JuvenileMoppet



Please make sure you drop by these artists pages and give them a llama, comment, favorite, buy prints, and show some love!



Special Mentions

Just wanted to mention that ya'll should go check out this page: www.keithalanhamilton.com/


Keith is an awesome guy with an incredible vision. Any work that can be done to help support that vision will be helping the art community as a whole. And while your at his site, check out the amazing artists featured in The Hamilton Galleries. And don't forget to check out his book 

Nature~IQ: "Let's Survive, Not Die!"


And when you get a chance, check out his publishers: www.innerchildpress.com    

They've helped many great writers gain some much needed exposure and produced numerous incredible books, with much of it being poetry.



Quick sidenote

So... things have been a bit rough lately. The place I was working closed down just over a month ago, and I haven't been able to turn up work since. This has obviously led to a lot of issues with our bills (mainly rent). I'm not going to ask for handouts or donations (actually I will but I'll get to that in a minute). I'm asking for print sales. Check out my print shop, and if you see anything you like and you have the extra money, please order it. In fact, do this for any artist. Many artists are barely managing to get buy and any little bit will help, especially if it comes with recognition of their work.


And one last quick little thing. Please do add to my donation pool! All of the money/points that goes into that donation pool goes towards supporting many other great artists in the community.



Thank you for checking out this journal!
