You didn't think you could get rid of me THAT easily didja?
:)

Yeah I am still alive and kicking. Nowhere near as active on dA as I was back in the day but I am starting to miss interacting with other artists...I haven't created anything new in so long....perhaps I can rekindle some of that creative fire by visiting more often ;).

I hope you are all doing well.
Lots going on here - but nothing major to speak of.
Hoping to get in some photoshoots before the summer ends so I can start refreshing my gallery.

In the meantime - I shall lurk. ;)

Daily Deviation!!!

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 29, 2011, 11:17 AM
WOW! So I come on very rarely these days and was super stoked to find out that my picture of Gosling Lake in Huntsville Ontario was given a Daily Deviation!

Gosling Lake by oibyrd

I see that many people were upset with the fact that my simple little picture was given such a huge spotlight. Some folks were "hoping" it was a stock picture. Others said it was mediocre.

The fact is I did not choose for this photo to be given a DD. I took this picture because the place itself was very special to my husband and I. I shared it in my gallery with the hopes that others would see it's beauty. Insulting it doesn't really offend me any because I am very happy with the way it turned out. I am by no means a professional photographer and I felt it was definitely one of my more impressive shots. If you disagree with it being a DD it would make more sense to let the gallery director know instead of slamming my skills or lack thereof.

THANK YOU to all who fav'd and left comments that weren't biligerant ;)

If you are still miffed - go check out my OTHER dd and perhaps it will unbunch your panties a bit. Maybe it will be a more deserving and impressive image for your artistically gifted eyes.

Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 24, 2011, 12:29 AM
Hello fellow deviants!
It has been far too long since my last update. Izzy started full time school and I have kept myself busy with her - trying to hunt for work now that she is older. It's been more difficult than I had originally anticipated.

I am still doing TFP shoots and have done various shoots for weddings and private events. I am not as active with my digital art but have definitely not forgotten it. Just put it on hold to concentrate on other things.

I tried to get my ODDs back on the map after the death of my dear friend David Felts (aka radiopooh) but the contest I held in his honor did not achieve the interest that I had hoped it would. The ODDs were one of my favorite projects artistically speaking and I met SO MANY talents on deviant art through that page. However - it is a very time consuming process and just isn't something I can put 110% into if the feedback isn't there. I apologize to anyone who was wondering where I vanished to - after the contest I felt the need for another break.

So I am still here (of course) and will post new works soon :)

If anyone in the Toronto area is interested in doing a shoot or needs any photo edits done please feel free to note me for details/price packages etc.

Love all of ya!
Sandi

PLEASE READ!! Contest Prize Update!

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 24, 2011, 8:50 AM
Hey again fellow deviants!
I have launched my first contest in over a year and I am very excited about it!

The idea of this contest is to pay tribute to my dear sweetpea radioPooh. This place will never feel the same for me without his presence...so I wanted to see folks utilize his wonderful stock resources that he offered up to this community. He had such a wide variety of subjects I am certain anyone of any genre can find inspiration in them.

The following images below are some of his STOCK photography. Please make sure the deviation you use for inspiration (or use directly in the form of a digital work) is STOCK and not photography - as he has BOTH in his gallery.


RULES:
- Use ANY Resource image from `radioPooh's gallery. Any medium can be used - so trad artists/artisan craft deviants can just point out the inspiration behind their works. You digital artists can just post which image(s) you used directly.

- Date for the end of this contest TBA.

That's IT :) Easy right? Now on to the prize list:

First Place:
1 Year Subscription + any dA print up to $10 from PurpelBlur
Journal features from oibyrd, OibyrdsDDs, petrova, PirateLotus-Stock and devilishlysweetplus
1800 Points from pinguino
-Necklace and earrings set by DAnnsCreations

Second Place:

6 month Subscription from `PurpelBlur
Journal features from oibyrd, OibyrdsDDs, petrova, PirateLotus-Stock and devilishlysweetplus
-Bracelet and earrings set by DAnnsCreations

Third Place:

3 month Subscription from `PurpelBlur
Journal features from oibyrd, OibyrdsDDs, petrova, PirateLotus-Stock and devilishlysweetplus

GOOD LUCK TO ALL!
Sandi <3

RadioPooh The Tributes

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 19, 2011, 7:23 PM
I am still mourning the loss of David aka :iconradiopooh: ....
I've heard all the comments people make to someone who is mourning the loss of a loved one.

"He's in a better place."
and "He's at peace".

"He isn't feeling pain anymore" or "He's watching over you now."

There is no malice in anyone saying these things. They are just standard stuff.
Mostly due to the fact that they are true...regardless of how much it sucks to hear them..
What do you say to someone who is hearbroken over the loss of a loved one?

I'm going to learn from David's example while in this world and say
....NOTHING.
Sometimes it's better just to listen.
Sometimes just being there and saying "I'm here" is enough.
:heart:


David's Obituary can be found at the link below...please visit the guestbook and send your condolences to his family:

If you want you can also leave a message for the love of his life on her dA page:

:worship: From the Lens of the Almighty Pooh :worship:

I always loved David's photography. I felt it was lost in the crowd around here and featured it as often as I could. Please take the time to browse through his works. He was super creative and fun with his subjects :):)

:thumb29860532::thumb13092807::thumb141315234::thumb145170854::thumb115568713::thumb16803476::thumb177814507::thumb12781537::thumb18104240::thumb175077586::thumb147436410::thumb162872997::thumb96141767::thumb153211067:

His stock photography was high quality - fun to work with - and ALWAYS interesting. A far cry from the standard stocky goodness - he tried to find things that were unusual to add to the mix of standards like butterflies and grassy fields ;) (mind you...he had some really pretty butterflies and grassy fields too! hehehe!)

RadioPooh The Artist

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 17, 2011, 9:32 AM
Not sure what I expected....but this is NOT it.
David loved this site more than anyone...
:thumb19728434::thumb157837385:
Now he's gone.
And everyone sent love to his friends and fam on my journal and that's it?
One tribute by the lovely BrigetteMora ....
Radio Pooh Colored by BrigetteMora
I thought something more profound would happen.
Even if the higher ups didn't care much for him....
a community note to pay tribute to the man who sang dA's praises?
I've seen more emotion for people who never even volunteered for the site.
Perhaps they are already working on something.
Or maybe not.
:thumb87508303::thumb6101064::thumb3675821:
Fuck it.
I'll do it myself.
:thumb16264296:
Below are my favorite works of my dear sweetpea radioPooh.
Anyone else on the website have any tributes or journals to share?
Throw me a link and I'll post 'em.

To the people who are pretending to care just to save face.
You fucking suck. No really. You do.


HIS LAST DEVIATION - and perhaps his most poignant one...
It's titled "Many Doors"
The description breaks my heart. It confirms that he knew what was happening to him and it breaks my heart.
:thumb185878176:
I opened one and found myself in a place called Serenity

The door snapped shut and I found myself between heaven and hell

On a mountain at the mouth of a cave

Warm air seemed to invite me in
And once entering I was met by maidens in gowns of all colors

Who led me to a warm bath full of milk and honey

Undressed I was helped into the bath

No words were spoken as I was given a cold drink of the milk of paradise

And soon a tray of cold fruit was balanced on the edge

With a young women who would pick up a cold piece of fruit

With a small stick and would giggle as I ate

……………….

I was given a robe made out of a fur I could not identify

And led to a room that had two chairs

I was invited to sit in one ( with warm slippers and a blanket wrapped and tucked around me )

………………

I waited and waited and ended by falling asleep

………………

Upon waking there was an old woman whose age was etched into her face as she stared at me and I at her

No words were spoken but could hear her

"You are dying she tells me"

"I know I reply"

She nods and gives me a once over

I do the same

" You can stay here "

"I know"

She tell's me – "you may not find this door again"

"I know, I think"

She nods

And suddenly I am back here in this life

Because I love you all and I love the sun and the moon and the stars dance for me when I pee of the poach.

RIP Radiopooh

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 15, 2011, 4:30 PM
Just got word that my closest friend on this site passed away this morning. I am beside myself.

David was one of the kindest people I've ever had the pleasure to know. He was encouraging to all on site and off. He was quirky and fun and talented. His journals read like a well thought out story book.

He loved this site with more passion than anyone I met here.
Rest in peace sweetpea. I love you.

Saying Farewell to the ODDs

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 19, 2010, 9:47 PM
As most of you already know I have decided to end my ODD account due to a five year old named Izzy who refuses to share me with you guys lol ;) Seriously speaking - things are so different than they were when I first joined dA. I was newly married. I was pregnant. I just recently celebrated my 5 year anniversary to Delon and proposed to him EXACTLY five years to the day (his birthday) when he proposed to me :)

That being said - we're planning a more traditional wedding - since I was VERY prego and ready to go home and nap during our FIRST wedding ;)


I will be checking in from time to time so this is not a farewell for good journal. This is a farewell to the ODDs and THANK YOU GUYS for making it one of the most successful undertakings I have been part of on this site.

Love to all of you - and HEY - I'm building my various portfolios and plan to pick up some prints - feel free to throw me some points if you have extra ;)

Four months later....

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 11, 2010, 8:18 PM
Four months after my last journal entry - probably the longest I've gone without checking in and saying hi to my fellow deviants.

Since then so many things have taken place I'm not even going to ATTEMPT to explain my absence. All you have to know is that I am still here and I still love creating my artwork and sharing it with you guys - and most importantly - I love promoting my fellow deviants so you can all meet different folks of different genres and perhaps even find yourself a likeminded artist to swap info/techniques with.

My life still revolves around my beautiful little girl (who is no longer little and has no problem announcing that at FULL blast!) She recently won an award in school - the teachers are doing a character building program this year and each teacher had to choose one child from their class that excelled in said character building program.

My daughter was the one chosen by her teacher.
So Sandi was brimming with pride - as was every other momma in the gym :) hehehe!

Apparently Delon and I are doing something right ;)

So I am back.
Will try and catch up with everyone in the next few days and hit up my OibyrdsDDs page since I never finished my poll features.

Missed you guys.
Happy to see that not a lot has changed - but I do wanna say BRAVO!!! to whomever it was that suggested grouping deviations for each individual artist in the watchlist. Makes browsing WAY easier!

:heart: Sandi :heart:

I am trying to generate some moolah to get Izzy seasonal clothing (her pants have magically all turned into floods lol) so if you are looking for something to pretty your wall with please grab a print from my shop :D

dA Lost An Artist....

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 17, 2009, 11:12 PM
I logged on to try and plough through the heaps of stuff in my inbox tonight and got a heart breaking note from one of my oldest friends on dA Imager1966.

Her husband B-Side109 has passed on.
He died peacefully in his sleep on November 8th after struggling with high blood pressure and heart problems.

Please pray/light candles/think positive thoughts for his wife and all who felt the pain of his passing. I feel so saddened that he is gone - he was always VERY supportive of my efforts with my OibyrdsDDs page and with my art in general. He even created work that was inspired by one of my older devs - one that I unfortunately can't seem to find and removed a lonnnng time ago.

Goodbye Ben.
You will be missed.

Wall of Shame + Best of's for 2009

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 5, 2009, 8:33 AM
Hey Gang
Miss me yet?
:D :D :D

I have been up and down with my health these days (as most of you on my facebook already know). I'm sorry for my sporadic visits - I'm trying to keep up but it's hard now that Izzy is in school. The days feel shorter for some reason...

Anyhoo - I found this asshat on eBay selling fridge magnets with images from various artists here on dA:

myworld.ebay.ca/greatmagnets

I scanned through everything and reported a handful of listings - you guys may want to check it out to make sure your OWN work is not being nabbed for profit.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I will be making up my best of lists for 2009 - I'm sure most of you remember how arduous a task it was last year with all my subcats lol...will try and downscale this year so you don't get sick of my constant updates ;)

The subcats that are included:
Best All Around Deviant for 2009
Top 10 Photographs Non-Adult
Top 10 Photographs - Adult Content
Top 10 Digital Artworks - Manips
Top 10 Digital Artworks - Fractals
Top 10 Digital Artworks - NOT Fractal or Manip
Top 10 Traditional Artworks
Top 10 Artisan Crafts
Top 10 Anime/Manga Artworks
Top 10 Cartoons and Comics
Top 10 Written Word
Top 10 Deviant Related
Top 10 Breast Cancer Awareness Artworks

It looks like a long list I know - but it was TWICE the size last year lol.

If you feel someone is deserving of a spotlight feel free to shoot me suggestions.
:heart:
Sandi

PS - LOOK!!! I've been cloned!

Gone Fishin'

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 13, 2009, 2:25 AM
Hey Gang
First off I apologize for not being around - I hit a bump in the road with my spastic emotions (due mostly to my Izzy starting school). I find it hard to focus on anything for longer than a few minutes - I am playing the part of hermit these days (so please don't think I'm ignoring any of you - my real life friends are frustrated with me too ;))

My health is up and down like a toilet seat - so it's making the depressive part of my issues worse.

Give me some time to shake it off - I love all of ya to pieces.
Sandi
