I'm not dead ... :PSo I did go back to school. I am officially an unemployed dental assistant now. But now that I don't have homework, I can start fractaling again. I wanted to work in Ultra Fractal (on my laptop), but even though I still have my key from when I bought it, it isn't working. Does the key "age"? Its from 2007.Anyone have any ideas?Thanks,Kabu
Its been months!So the job I always wanted turned out to be a wash. They don't like employees who can free-think. So I decided to go back to school. I start on Monday ... eek!!!We adopted a kitten because the animal shelter needed room to house all the animals evacuated from the wildfires. His name is Tokugawa, and he is a hoot! http://fav.me/d5etpqoToku beats up the other cats, even though they outweigh him by at least 10 pounds. And he has Molly the Mastiff wrapped around his finger, and Molly outweighs him by 184 pounds! He also spent about 1 1/2 hours in the refrigerator. He was curious, I just about had a heart-attack! I have to keep cat toys under my pillow so when he tries to wake me at 4am, I start tossing them at him. Buys me an hour or so. Depends how well I stocked up ... Last week I bought my son his cap and gown for graduation ... creating sporadic crying episodes

Hey All!Its been a while, sorry for that. But I have been keeping busy. Not much new going on, but my daughter turned 9 last month and cannot wait to be a 4th grader! My son does not want to go back to school, he is happy at home and tagging along when I go hiking. I have been doing some cooking, got a cookbook that I love! And working ... posted a photo in my scrapbook.Anyway, I put up a few fractals and a pic my daughter took. It's in my scrapbook as well. It is time for me to sit back and relax from all the cooking and fractaling I have been doing today. I hope you all are well ...
Spring is here!Okay, winter is over and I am finally over my "winter makes me miserable" mood. So I have been doing a bit of shopping and soul-searching, this time of year sucks for me. Not just because of the weather but there are too many anniversaries of bad things that we went through. But there's some good stuff too! I found a great job that I am happy to go to ... And have been fractaling a bit and doing a little site-seeing with the kids ... BTW ... they are awesome! I see them growing a little each day and I see them growing into good people, know what I mean? I am so proud of them ... Anyway, I have uploaded a few pics if anyone is interested. I will be submitting a few fractals as its been AGES! I promise to get back into the swing of things as the weather warms, and will be doing my favorites features as soon as the thermometer hits 75 ... My poor fence went down this weekend in 87 mph gusts, bu

Having an Online Presence"All artists need to have an online presence," I said."Easy for you to say, Popular Artist™," they said."I had to work hard to get 'popular'," I said"But it's SOOO hhaaaaAAARD," they said"That's what I just said," I said. After making my status posts about making an online presence, I figured I'd make a sort of guide. I made a very generic list of things you should do as an artist who wants to get their name out there or "get popular". A lot of people were like, "but I've done all of that". But chances are, you haven't. There's a lot that goes into this and it takes a long ass time. Don't think it's just gonna happen in a month. So I made a guide based on my own experience and what worked for me (as an illustrator/artist. Some of these tips are more specific than others and some of these will not necessarily work for you. Everyone's different. Keep in mind this is mostly for illustrators/animators/story artists etc. This won't work fo
