Hello to the people who happen to read this.
I am yet again very absent from Deviantart. This is mainly because this year I started my first year Illustration at the Art academy, Willem de Kooning Academy. This means my life is all about art! However, excluding Deviantart. I've been very busy drawing all the time and experimenting with different media. I even tried digital media, painted with ketchup, made cutouts etc. I had to finish 100 works, collect 100 works and write an analysis within 2 weeks. Now that the assignment is done, I have to keep going on en create my own...book. So sadly there is no time for Deviantart So that's an update on life and I hope everyone is well. Hopefully I'll be able to check in once in a while to see the new awesome art in my inbox, but for now I will be absent.

The Doctors In"He's probably dead," Roger exclaimed as the two kittens giggled mischievously behind him.
Krystal and Amanda had arrived at Coleman Park appropriately attired for the evening. Their previously decided-upon costumes seemed much sexier in person than when Roger was helping them choose outfits at Wal-Mart. Being the edgy person that he was, he had politely declined their offer of buying a disguise for him. He had never celebrated the holiday, and instead purchased a t-shirt that furthered his rebelliousness with bright yellow text that read, 'I don't do costumes.'
His head down and his hands in his pockets, he paced himself up the paved hill that lead to the local, haunted legend. Krystal swung her faux tail playfully and adjusted the large black ears that wouldn't stay in her curly hair despite the obscene amounts of hairspray she had employed. Amanda clicked her heels across the ground. She sprinted in front of Roger and slowed to a smooth strut seemingly fo

Dreams are a gatewayAs all around you, thunder crashes,
and jagged flashes expose the rain,
the walls begin to shake and moan and
the dream comes again to haunt your brain.
All alone in bed, your restless head,
tossing like a ship on violent seas,
sprays salty teardrops across the sheets,
the growing stains naught but wordless pleas.
Terror rises from night-blackened depths,
by nature's fury, drawn forth to feed,
come to wrap you in its spectral limbs,
so from sanity you can be freed.
Now forlorn within your troubled mind,
and marooned upon a mountain high,
you are confronted by a nightmare.
God it looms in size! Such depthless eyes!
Your eardrums shake from a ceaseless howl,
which blows apart the concealing clouds,
and your trembling limbs freeze, numb with awe,
for, too quickly now, its shape unshrouds.
Many jagged lines of iron mist
frame a frame cast from hell incarnate,
with spears of flesh and strobing colors,
its merest sight leaves you insensate.
Mismatched eyes see through your stammered l
