It's been a while, hasn't it? I've been concentrating a lot more on my coursework, specifically finishing my thesis, so I haven't been making artwork. this account is mostly dead. The reason I've come back, for a little while, is to collect some research for my thesis.
I'm studying the effect that the internet has had on artists over the past few years. I'm sending out interviews to any visual artist that I find, regardless of whether they're a beginner or a pro, all input is necessary to my research. If you want to be interviewed and I haven't already contacted you, just send me a note! I'm gathering as many as I can.
The interview itself is pretty extensive, since I have to ask questions that explore both professional and beginner art journeys. You can skip questions, and I am operating using only alias', in order to protect privacy. If you want to keep the interview and share it even after I close submissions, go for it! It's all yours.
Chances are, if you're reading this, you're making sure I'm not some crazy spammer. I promise I'm not, I'm just a girl trying to graduate with highest honors in May. I'm also collecting interviews from sites like Tumblr, SmackJeeves, and ConceptArt, so apologies to any artists I didn't recognize and contacted twice. After sending hundreds of letters it gets a bit muddled.
After this, I'm going to tie up some loose ends and leave dA for good. I'll also be selling off all of my old merchandise at liquidation prices, since I have no desire to continue lugging this stuff around. (But all of that will come later). If you know me well enough on here, you probably know how to contact me off site. I am moving to a new chapter in my life, and I don't really need this account anymore. I can't say I'll be completely away from dA forever, I can't predict the future, but I wouldn't hold my breath. If you really will miss me and want to know how to find me off-dA, drop me a note and I'll tell you how to find me.
Thanks for all the fun,
P.S.- I'm driving back up to school tomorrow (9hours), so I will send out the emails in bulk then. Thanks for your help everyone!
