1.How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Ten years! I am so so old. My wrinkles have wrinkles of their own. Pretty soon they too shall sire wrinkles and so the circle of life continues. I used to operate on a different account 'SomeFreakyGuy'. Had to shut it down though as some pesky folks stole some of my work. Grr. 

2.
What does your username mean?
It is my name. People use it to attribute slanderous rumours about mutations and ridiculous reports about an underground lab of trained clone assassins. Don't believe them. Or else. 

3.Describe yourself in three words.
Mutant Ninja Turtle.

4.Are you left or right handed?
Right.

5.What was your first deviation?
I cannae remember. It was long ago. I am fairly sure it was barely better than a stick figure. It probably would have been something to with Johnny the Homicidal Maniac or Squee as fairly obsessed with that comic at the time. 

6.What is your favourite type of art to create?
Pen and paper traditional style. 

7. 
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digital painting. Would love to give it a go, but wouldn't want to pay for a decent piece of kit only to find it isn;t as fun as I imagine it to be. 

8. What was your first favourite?
Follow me by Nephyla beauty is dying because... by jesusbuttcrack Black speech by BonesKarn8 
Okay so there is more than one there - but it took me on a trip down memory lane. Believe it. 

9.What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Anything and everything so long as it packs an emotional punch - or if there is a particularly awesome technique that I may 'borrow' in the future.

10.Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
:iconoffermoord: features heavily in my favourites- so many times I stumble upon a work thinking it is someone new and... nope there he is again!! Constantly varied, community minded and EVERYWHERE in the groups I haunt frequently here. 

There are so many people in frequent contact on this site though and it really would be mean to leave people out - asking to pick a favourite is a bit mean really isn't it? For shame! 

11.If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I have no idea if this is a cheat answer because I am fairly sure :iconclivebarker: is not actually behind the wheel of the deviantArt account that takes his name. But I really would like to meet the great 'imaginer' Clive Barker. Love listening to interviews with the guy who always appears courteous, engaging and full of interesting stories.

12.How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
They all have, with various elements and reasons over the last ten years. Every friend made, every favourite, lovely comment, llama and every beautiful piece of artwork that makes me boil with creative and productive jealousy helps contribute to make this my favourite site on the internet. I genuinely look forward to checking my inbox every day. You all make me want to get better at scribbling and making things. 

13.What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pen and paper, for writing, for drawing. Simple but so many possibilities. Love that no matter how long one can practice, there is always new ways to improve and new styles to adopt. 

14.What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Just make stuff where every you are. Always bring a pen, a notepad, a scrap of paper or even a napkin because you never know when an idea is going to hit you. 

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Getting Boxer by michaelkutsche recommended as a Daily Deviation back when my username was still SomeFreakyGuy. Have been following :iconmichaelkutsche: for many years and always enjoyed watching his career develop.

Greetings and salutations you beautiful paint slinging, ink swigging, pencil punishing, phantom photographing denizens of the digitial dynamic deviantArt-sphere.

 

How have you been? I feel like we haven’t spoken in a while. Things have been busy over here with deadlines and various ‘IRL’ events disrupting the general flow of creativity. What have you been up to? What are you proud of? Feel free to let us know in the comments below.

 

For those new to my little corner of dA; I try to sporadically feature a few deviations that have caught my eye to try and spread some love and inspiration. I’m gonna keep it to three deviations per journal and they will be picked more or less at random. Hopefully this will let y’all have a little moment in the limelight and not get lost in a cacophony of screaming colours.

 

Let us get stuck in shall we?

 

Gluttony by amircatic

 

First up we take a peek at this grumpy looking fella taking a chunk out of his tongue. Why would you do that? I don’t know, but as the title is Gluttony we can have a sure bet that this dude is eating his way into self-destruction.

 

I had a Dream about you by djyerba

 

‘I Had a Dream About You’ is a welcome dance through neon landscapes with some crazy psychedelic critters leaping about for good measure. The song is based on the very fine track ‘Digital Love’ by Daft Punk which certainly helps it earn some kudos from yours truly.

 

Electric Head by f1x-2

 

Finally here is a sci-frightening look into the future.  As technology seeps its way into every damp crevice of our life how long is it until we are completely cut off from the world that surrounds us. Does this liberating connectivity ultimately blind us to the suffering of our brethren? What do you reckon on it?

 

 

Okay some personal stuff now. Recently my little sis returned to deviantArt to share some of her photograpy so I would very much like to extend a ‘welcome back!’ here is a recent snap of her pet dragon Smaugling:

 

Beardie 1 by M-V-Ladd

 

Yeah he looks pretty awesome. 

Laters potatoes!

Holy Shit, your artwork is amazing! Intricate, intense, expressive, and very much rooted in your own unique and unconventional style/aesthetic. You've earned yourself another fan.
Keep up the great work, Kyle! ^_^
