6 years of (sometimes guilty) pleasure

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 15, 2014, 2:52 AM

Hello peeps,

I am now 6 years on dA and I still love it as much as the first day.

Now this is an historical falacy to start with because I actually joined dA 6 months earlier but I had the misfortune (why do these things always happen to me????) of assuming, unbeknowest to me, the name of a well-known pornstar.
I was getting all sorts of funny remarks till i googled the name and yep, pornstar, oh well...

But a few months later I got my courage back and came back as crayonmaniac, also an impulsive name choice but it sticks and has now become an artistic skin to me...
People got me gifts, bought my prints, gave me subs and I gave subs back and all of this is still so vivid in my mind.
I also met people for real, Flo, Brian, Vincent, Erik D, Yannick and loved every second of it

I want to thank you all for the love I and my art got/get here, I made so many paintings for so many of you with so much love, I grew here from a wannabe little scribbler to the professional i am today, i met people here from all over the globe, got my 3 DD's, became flavor of the month at some time and lost the popularity later but the good friends still stick around...
And I still want to learn, still want to improve, still look up to the great ones, the gods of the profession and feel like a little girl in awe of such splendid art

I met people here I had lost sight of for years, even old boyfriends from college, I flirted, I dreamed, I cried, but most of all I grew as an artist thanks to all of you.

And when I thought I had seen it all, had done the tour, that life held no more surprises in store for me after so many rushes of the heart, I met my one true love, my Micheal here on dA of all places...
He is drinking coffee on our terras while I sit a few steps away from him, writing this dA journal...

Thank you dA, thank you all my dear beloved crayonmaniac fans, to the next 6 years for sure

YOU'VE BEEN HUGGED!! *Hug*kaomoji set 1 3/19 
Spread the DA love around! (you can copy and paste this message on their userpage!)
1- You can hug the person who hugged you!
2- You -SHOULD- hug 10 other people, at least!
3- You should hug them in public! Paste it on their page!
4- Random hugs are perfectly okay! (and sweet)
5- You should most definitely get started hugging right away!
If You Get 7 Back You Are Loved!
