Ah, I got an e-mail today reminding me that it's my 9 year anniversary here on dA!
It's strange to think that I've been on here that long. And this'll probably sound a bit... y'know... but I really have sort of grown up with dA, and it's quite staggering what an impact it's had on my artwork and my life. A lot of you guys have been with me from day one, and that means more than you'll ever know (although I do try to tell you often!), and some of you have only just arrived here and it's really great to meet you all. It's always been the community spirit that's made me really love dA and even after all these years that hasn't changed. Even when I didn't use the site for awhile I still found my way back and started chatting away to people as though it had only been two hours rather than two years...! It's just that kind of place.
So, again, on this anniversary I'd like to say a huge thanks to all of you guys who've shared this journey with me. Here's to another 9 years!
Love you x
