On this day, the 20th of May! New journal time, since the art theft doesn't seem to be stopping (see last journal). Thankyou so much to EVERYONE who left comments, and everyone who tried to get that individual banned. Fingers crossed it works someday soon.

I'd love to say "on another note" but it's not much more of a good topic. I'm seriously considering leaving Deviant Art. Deleting all my art, disabling all comments, making a "I NO LONGER LIVE HERE" journal and hiking out of here.

Why? Well I'm sure a certain person would love to take credit, sorry to disapoint them, but it's a whole slew of reasons many of which I've ranted about before. The art theft, the abuse, the commitment, the community. Theres honestly no reason for me to stay here. I don't draw anymore and when I do it's forced. I don't reply to notes, I don't read comments, I have no social presence and I have no-one keeping me here.

I'm thinking of perhaps making my own website so I can display the art *I* want, and not need to deal with all this. I'll put a link if I manage to get one up and running, I hope that you'll visit it!

To the people who have always tried their best to make me feel welcome and appreciated, THANKYOU. No one could ask for better fans, or for kinder human beings. You all kept me going as long as I have, and you'll ensure I'll never stop drawing. :heart: :heart: :heart:

I'm not gone yet, I'm sticking around for a little while as I make my final decision. This is just... getting ready for the farewell party lol.

Make sure you bookmark that page, and have fun!!!

PLEASE READ THIS: I do NOT do trades or requests. Do not email or note me asking me to draw stuff, it will be ignored. Yeah.

You really need to inform people to put screenshots of your dollmaker into their scraps where screenshots of dollmakers belong. ^^;

i've reported over 50 now that people have put in their main galleries, half the time not even linking back to you, and a few even claiming it was their own work. ox; those last few really bugged me when i saw them, as they were getting praise for your hard work. it's not fair to you.

good luck on whatever you choose to do. your artwork is nice, and noone deserves to have impersonators/thieves.

i've been a fan of your work for a long time, and i hope you continue, whether or not you decide to leave. i'd really look forward to seeing your own site if you ever create it.
thanks for being a great inspiration =) and good luck.

Cool, but, if I was going to draw and someone stole my stuff, claimed it as their own... I mean I'd be drawing for fun, and I would care, but I sure hope it's not your main reason for living.
