Feb.I find journal entries most interesting and valuable to read on this website when these two conditions are applied: 1. The artwork from the artist is good, or maybe just interesting 2. The subject of the journal entry is deviantART itself
Thus I recall outloud how this dubious website has been a constant companion over some time now, and has practically weaned me by supplying me with lots of pictures to look at as the years passed by. I'm almost lost in thought...
The new deviantART layout has informed me that I, Joe Garvin, am a "deviant" of seven years. This past weekend, a long time since joining this website, I set up my first photo display...at this cafe in Wheaton, IL, my hometown:
Jan.Winter break is over and I'm back at school again. My life is like one of those spinning paper wheels with illustration stills and slits in it, so that when you look at it it gives the illusion of motion, but if you ever try to hold it still something inside will break. Been having some fun with the old painting-with-light idea, also recently went to the Shedd Aquarium so might have some from that. Hope everybody here is well, until next time -
ZooYesterday Mike http://haileyissoftashell.deviantart.com/ and I went to the Brookfield Zoo, weathered the cold and managed to take pictures and enjoy the wonderful holy creatures of God's green earth. I uploaded some phot's here already...look at them
Largely OkayTook three finals for this fall semester: worst term in my collegiate career thus far...
The Mouth of the HudsonA single man stands like a bird-watcher,
and scuffles the pepper and salt snow
from a discarded, gray
Westinghouse Electric cable drum.
He cannot discover America by counting
the chains of condemned freight-trains
from thirty states. They jolt and jar
and junk in the siding below him.
He has trouble with his balance.
His eyes drop,
and he drifts with the wild ice
ticking seaward down the Hudson,
like the blank sides of a jig-saw puzzle.
The ice ticks seaward like a clock.
A negro toasts
wheat-seeds over the coke-fumes
of a punctured barrel.
sweeps in from New Jersey,
and smells of coffee.
Across the river,
ledges of suburban factories tan
in the sulphur-yellow sun
of the unforgivable landscape.
Warning - Pedophile on DAIMPORTANT - PLEASE READ
It seems a registered sex offender is back online. Glenn Glatz has been using the username SoThatsWhatsUp for a few months now, using a young girl's face as a coverup for a while. I didn't want to get involved again, but now that I know it's him I wanted to warn my watchers that he's back.
Please do not attack him, do not message him. You may report if you see fit, but that's all we can do for now. This is just a warning because I know I have young watchers and this man is rather sick, he'd sooner harass those against him into submission before admitting he's in the wrong.
It's come to my attention that Glenn is trying to threaten those who are spreading this with law suits. Let it be known, there's no way in hell he can sue you for warning your watchers about a registered sex offender. As you can search Glenn Glatz's name on google, and find him as a sexual predator wit

Messy, it's now clearly obvious to me that you've jinxed us.
Remember your 'excuse' for drawing more girls in swimsuits?
You mean everyone keeps asking about bikini cuz of me?
Not that I had anything against girls in swimsuits...
No doubt! Especially after you said S3rb4n 's Voltsurge looks really great in night lights
Well, I must admire, that we have improved our anatomy skill a bit. But we need to improve other skills too.
I want to draw something fancy, like cute dress or fantasy elven outfit.
Papyrus x Reader x SansPapyrus laughed eagerly and loudly as he and his brother Sans walked back to their stations.
“-And did you see how badly that human failed on my last puzzle?!It goes to show that I will be a great Royal Guard!NYEH HEH HEH!”Papyrus said, praising himself.Sans, who usually doesn’t leave his post (out of laziness) had to laugh also.”Is it really so hard to turn Xs into Os?” Sans chuckled.
As the Skelo-Bros neared Papyrus station, they noticed two little little legs squirming out as if they were stuck.Sans glanced over at the legs as if it was as usual as a hyper Lesser Dog, while Papyrus looked dumbstruck.”ANOTHER HUMAN?!”Papyrus yelled, more trying to get attention then being surprised.The small person automatically fell to the ground, fearfully clutching a flip-phone that had been given to her from her monster ‘guardian’.
Papyrus looked down upon the young girl as Sans merely stood back, completely cool.The girl, frozen with fear, lo
Doflamingo x Reader: Family Matters
There have been many things you have seen on Baby5’s face, but only rarely have you ever seen her looking glum. Most times you’ve seen her, she’s either exuberant, furious, or comically crying, depending on her “boyfriend” situation. Other than that, she was always relatively calm, with a slight smile.
“Little Miss, what has you feeling so down?” You walk up to her side, putting a hand on her shoulder.
“(name), I wasn’t expecting to see you.” She sighed, and then chuckled a little. “How many times have I told you to call me by my name? I don’t need to be called ‘Little Miss’.”
“I will continue calling you ‘Little Miss’ as long as I am a servant working here at the castle and you are considered Family by the Young M
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper
