Ok...so I've been a Deviant for almost 5 years and never uploaded anything. I just surfed Deviantart "collecting" art that inspired me or moved me in some way. My favorites Gallery is pretty big right about now.
Now you may ask...why haven't I ever uploaded anything of my own? Well..the answer is so simple yet so complex that it has taken my years to build up the courage to follow my dreams. As artists, I'm sure you've struggled with doubts and fears and just plain ole hesistation about letting your most precious babies out into the world. Wondering if your art was any good, if your voice was clear, if your just a hack.
I have been an artists most of my life, but couldn't find my voice. That thing that told the world who I was...mostly because I barely knew who I was. Still don't sometimes. But I realized that I need to start defining myself and letting my voice, my vision out, however it manifest itself. Whether that be in writing or sketching or photography or anything. I need to let it breathe and evolve into what its been trying desparately to be all this time. Stifling it inside and hidden away never allows it to flourish and grow. I know this now...and I am committed to letting it spread its wings.
So...without farther ado. This is my art. This is me.
