Hey everyone! First thing's first:

Thank you to everyone who has favorited my work, given me llamas, given me critiques, mentions, etc. etc. etc... And you're welcome to everyone I've done the same for! So sorry I didn't do this with each individual person, but I haven't been on here in quite some time and had WAAAYYYY too much ot catch up with to do so. On that note, I also had over 3000+ watch messages, so sorry to everyone I'm watching because I honestly didn't look at a single thing...

Now.... why have I been gone so long? Prepare yourself for the epic tale of a mundane life!

It all started with a couple of days of laziness.... Well... more exhaustion and actually trusting my instincts for once and taking it easy until pushing myself into a bad illness. Then came the art theft.... Some d-bag in Oklahoma stole a couple of my pieces off of deviantART to sell on his personal site as his own, sooo... a cease and desist letter, a very angry and busy week, and one apology letter along with the thief's compliance later... problem solved... sort of... I've since been taking any time I have available to place some sort of watermark or signature on my work.

Within the next week, almost everything on my dA page will be replaced with a signed or watermarked version, and almost all of my prints will be taken down. You WILL, however, be able to purchase the original, non-marked version of those images as premium content for a small amount... I figure at least this way if someone steals it after downloading, I'll have at least made something off of it. lmao

 So while all that was going on, this happened:

Nothing major, just a 2nd degree burn over about 20% of my hand. Keep in mind, I have a full time job as a cook, burns are a common happening, and the pain usually doesn't bother me... this one... yea, this one sucked. lol It actually made it a bit difficult to use my hand for a few days, which slowed down everything else I've been working on. Thanks to a mixture I learned years ago of yarrow and alcohol, it now looks like this:

Obviously not a great photo, but you get the point. Healed VERY quick, thankfully. 

Aside from that, extremely busy days at work and general drama within my personal life (as everyone has), on top of actually developing a social life again now that our old room mates are gone has kept me away from deviantART. 

As I said in the last journal, I have been staying behind the lens and Renny K and I have still been going on adventures, and I have lots to share with you guys!

I'm about to continue the watermarking/signing work so I can share the new stuff with you guys, and I would very much like someone to talk to :please: Please? :please:  lmao

Hey everyone! I just wanted to let ya'll know that I AM still alive. I've been caught up in all kinds of craziness lately and just haven't really had the time to update my stuff on the interwebs... speaking of which, this is my first time on deviantART since before they did the update.... And I both hate it and love it. Site navigation is a lot easier, especially for people just visiting your deviantART page that aren't, themselves, deviants. HOWEVER, the "Today" tab is a hot freakin' mess, the watch feed design is extremely inconvenient, and it really bugs me that a lot of the site icons and stuff look so similar to facebook... I guess we'll just have to see how this is for now....

Anyways, I'll tell you guys about the craziness later. I have been keeping myself behind the lens and have been on a few adventures during my hiatus, and have lots of cool stuff to share with you! I'll have updates within the week, and will be OFFICIALLY bringing back the weekly features as of Oct 24th. 

Thanks for reading and sticking around!

Hello friends!
I'm about to spend a damn decent portion of my night trying to find all of my image files posted on here, new and old, add some sort of watermark or signature to each of them, remove those files from dA, and replace them with watermarked ones.... If anyone would like to talk to help pass the time, I'm going to be on skype.

skype ID:AlgeriArts

And please, nobody sick sykpebots on me. I just had to block 4 last night... it gets very annoying.



Also, I did miss Feature Friday last week, but the features are FOR SURE coming back this week, starting Wednesday. I would also like to get a skype group together for artists to get to know each other, learn from each other, and receive real-time critique. If anyone would be interested PLEASE comment and let me know.

And one more thing: If you or anyone you know lives in Northeast Ohio would like to volunteer to model for me, please let me know! I'm currently looking for individuals, couples, and groups who have tattoos, piercings, scarification, or other body modifications generally rejected by "society" (not including plastic surgery) for Body Modders Nation. Examples of the work being done on this project can be found in my gallery.

If you're interested, PM me here or email algeriarts@yahoo.com

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!
