> i can't believe i've been on dA for three years now. insanity!

>> i'm learning to use dreamweaver (an html/web-design program) in one of my classes, so i'll be able to get my long-promised website finally up-and-running soon! i cannot wait. the idea of being able to share my art that way is so exciting.

>>> maryland institute college of art (MICA) is keeping me so, so busy! i have almost no free time to do anything, save for weekend nights, but that's time for hanging out with buddies! i haven't made any new personal art in a long while and it's a little sad. i also don't have photography until next semester, so i'm actually getting kind of depressed from the lack of photos i've been able to take since august... seriously though. there's a huge void in my life. haha... january couldn't come soon enough...

>>>> i want to make a gift to thank everyone for the support, but i need to know: what do you guys want?! <3

>>>>> i'm not sure if i'm supposed to say, but... two of my photo-manipulations are being used on the front and back cover of a novel being published by harper collins! it's called 'dead rules' and is by an up-and-coming new writer named randy russell. this has been in the works for several months now and the book is just going into print. it will be released in summer 2011. i am very excited about it! here's the book's trailer, if anyone's interested: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLggve…

have a brilliant day/afternoon/evening/midnight, everyone!

"a sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing." - william dobell

FIRST:

iNeedChemicalX sent me a note and said she got a question on her formspring that said, "do you know miss-deathwish by any chance? if you do, could you ask her to make a formspring too? im kinda shy to ask her myself. you don't have to but it would be great if you did! thanks."

and so... i made one, despite how silly i think formsprings are, just 'cause you guys are so good to me that i'd love to make at least one of you happy! haha <3

here it is: www.formspring.me/missdeathwis…

keep your inquiries appropriate, please!


..
SECOND:

does anyone else think that:

1. intense crazy psycho love confessions for singers/celebs/famous people/etc. are totally CREEPY!? okay, i get it if you really like someone - i mean, i have my share of singers, actors, artists, and authors whom i adore - but regardless of how amazing you think they are, they are NOT your soulmate, nor should you love them with every last bit of your heart, because really. they don't love you with all of theirs. so stop thinking you're the only one for him/her and cease your dream wedding plans. it's hilariously disturbing to me when i see a photograph of, say, johnny depp, bombarded with crazy-ass stalkerish comments like "OMG SO HOT HE'S THE ONLY MAN FOR ME" or "I'LL RAPE HIM WHEN I MEET HIM"... that is not okay. haha.

2. websites need to stop refurbishing and redesigning themselves?! we don't need new versions every few months, seriously. it's too much, especially when the changes are so drastic that navigation ceases to make sense and functionality is questionable.

3. IT'S TOTALLY INSANE THAT ASH KETCHUM, THE (albeit fictional... and cartooned) OBJECT OF MY CHILDHOOD DESIRES/MAJOR TELEVISION CHARACTER CRUSH, IS VOICED BY A GIRL!!!!!?!1?!!?1/1!/ i know i shouldn't be surprised, considering so many boy cartoon characters have female voice actors, but... ash!?! his voice was sooooo cuuuuuteeee and dreamyyyyy! fffffffffff! /nostalgia


...
THIRD:

you guys are all totally awesome and i can NEVER thank you enough! baahh! <3

and you know what else? because i know that it's so easy to have very little self-confidence/esteem (it's something i suffer from horribly), i want everyone to fill this out and post it in the comments (if you so desire)! i know that i, for one, really need to start liking myself more, and the best way to do so is to take little steps. so i'll fill it out too.

ONE THING I LIKE ABOUT MY...
FACE:
BODY:
PERSONALITY:
CHARACTERISTICS:

here's mine:
ONE THING I LIKE ABOUT MY...
FACE: my eyelashes! i quite enjoy how naturally long and thick they are.
BODY: my hands/wrists; i think they have a nice (deceivingly) graceful look to them.
PERSONALITY: my ability to be a good listener and friend.
CHARACTERISTICS: my sense of humor. it's a weird one, but i like that i can amuse myself and i love making others laugh.

keep smiling, guys ^^ <3

her photo is called 'i am visible'. click the yellow button which says ‘GLASUJ’ (= vote) and put in you first name, your last name and your email (or you can just type in some random letters, it doesn’t really matter). the last step is to click the yellow button ‘ODDAJ’. thank you guys ^^

The Diamond On A Landmine. by Dastorm-Photography
midnight by csali coldgloomytuesday. by hip-possible

. . .

so! thank you all for the overwhelmingly helpful response on my latest poll ( miss-deathwish.deviantart.com/… ). i've decided i am going to build a website this summer and sell some of my art and possibly writing on it, good prices and shipping and such. i've discussed it a lot with my parents and they support me fully. i'm quite excited!

in other news:

1. i turned eighteen this past friday (the 14th)! not only did my friends and i inhale obscene amounts of helium from my balloons (bahaha, hilarity ensued), but eighteen also means... tattoo time! haha. i plan on getting a black script tattoo on my left collarbone that says 'keep the faith' in memory of my uncle tim who was murdered when i was younger. it was the phrase surrounding his death and the hard months that we lived in a hotel room during his trial. i think it's a good motto for everything, really, though - you've gotta keep the faith and stay strong that even in rough times, things will look up. why take anything as a negative experience? sure, bad things - terrible, sad, awful things - can happen in life, every day, and it is perfectly okay to mourn. but you can learn from everything. everything is an opportunity to gain knowledge and better yourself and your mind, and you've gotta keep that frame of mind and keep the faith.

2. my little sister sasha went back into the psychiatric ward (for her schizophrenia) because she is... not doing well at all. i am not asking for sympathy, but just... keep her in your thoughts, if you can (and prayers, i suppose, if you do that sort of thing). thank you <3

3. i had an amazing time ghosthunting in gettysburg with my friend zoë for the past two weeks; we had tons of fun and many insane adventures (some of which are explained here miss-deathwish.deviantart.com/… !). i can't wait to go through the photographs i took and see if any turned out! also, the 15th was my boyfriend and my one-year anniversary. we've been together an entire 365 (well, more now)! i love him beyond what words can express and am so SO fortunate and glad to have him in my life.

4. I LOVE YOU ALL, seriously. your comments and suggestions and feedback and encouragement mean so much to me. i wish i had the time to reply to each and every one of you individually (like i used to), but sadly, i really don't. however, i read everything you say and appreciate it so much! thank you thank you thank you /hugs/

5. i will be attending maryland institute college of art this fall! thanks to scholarships and aid, i am able to go. i am quite excited... and i pity my roomate XD they're gonna have to learn to deal with a loud-voiced, disorganized insomniac who makes extraneous noises a lot and sings loudly in the shower and doesn't eat any green candy (including m&m's) thanks to slightly ocd tendencies and has major major germaphobia... hahaaa oh geez!

6. uhh... i just didn't want an even number. oh! i'm not sure i like the new dA layout : the resizing/enlarging when you click on a picture is especially strange...

7. shameless plug time -  see more of my photos (most of which are not on dA) at these places! f0x.tumblr.com/ & www.flickr.com/photos/miss-dea… & www.flickr.com/photos/baileyel… & www.facebook.com/pages/Miss-De…

So close. by incredi wind. by ang3llor3 :thumb130340397:



. . .




:star: miss-deathwish.deviantart.com/… :star:

If I were to make a website to sell my art, would anyone here be interested in purchasing things? It would have things such as:

- high-quality photo prints
- original drawings & other art
- commissioned items (drawings, tattoo designs, etc.)
- decorated accessories (shoes, bags, etc.)

& possibly:
- a poetry/writing chapbook
- photoshoot opportunities
- handmade accessories like hairbows and jewelry
- silkscreened/printed tees

Everything would be for the most reasonable prices possible, because I can easily sympathize with the tight-on-money situations that a lot of people are in. The website would most likely be self-owned/operated, not hosted by some sketchy site or anything of the sort.

Please let me know. Thank you!

* * *


i just wanted to say hi to everyone. it feels like it's been a while since i've done that. i miss being able to reply to all of you guys! i really miss it. i just don't have enough time anymore... :

so, HI! how are you all? what's been going on in your lives?

i've been really busy with finishing scholarship applications for mica; i got a $44,000 scholarship to saic and a $32,000 to scad, but i really hope to attend mica for college. however, money plays a huge factor in where i go. i wish it didn't. stupid money. i'm taking a class called "poverty in america" in school, and it's really opened my eyes to a lot of things, specifically the unspoken class system in the u.s. and the way society deals with the "poor". it's interesting, but it makes me hate money more. why does money have to weigh so heavily upon us? why does it have to be such a huge factor in life? aksjfadlkfhasldf. it's frustrating.

i've also been spending a lot of my time getting ready for my gallery show next week. i'll be showing my photographs alongside three other artists at the straube center in new jersey. i'm super excited, but it is not a small amount of work to prepare for! haha. it's super super stressful.

however, i managed to find some time tuesday night to go see muse (my boy bought us tickets! <3), and holy GEEZ were they awesome. matt bellamy is an absolute god. his voice is fucking incredible, and their music altogether sounds amazing live. even if you only know a few of their songs, i'd highly recommend attending a concert if at all possible. it was easily one of the best live shows i've been to.

and last but not least, i wanted to sort of explain myself - more like my submissions here - as of late. a few people have mentioned to me that i've been churning out some 'darker' things than usual, with less and less lighthearted and colorful things to break it up. i know this - it's just because my art often reflects my life and mood. art is not only an outlet for me but almost a form of meditation. it's my thoughts and feelings and pieces of my mind, and when i am feeling hectic/pressured/angry/upset/whatever, it becomes pretty evident in what i create. it's not really intentional, it's just how it works. my little sister sasha has been stuck in a downward spiral ever since she came back from the psychiatric ward; her schizophrenia always wears on my whole household, but she's been doing worse in the last couple of weeks. i have a lot of schoolwork lately, and getting it all done is a really big hassle - i just need a break. and tomorrow is the anniversary of the murder of my uncle, so that's been sitting like a shadow over my family as well.

i'm just... i need art in these kinds of times, and i hope you all understand and bear with me through these less vibrant phases. i'm scraping along, trying to be strong, and keeping in mind that everything will pass, that i've gotten through worse things in the past.

in even the hardest times, you have to just be, to exist, and make your way through it. the skies will clear eventually. they always do, even after the heaviest rains.

you've gotta keep the faith.

see more of this artist's gorgeous work in the 'this is art' section of my page! it's on the left side next to the comments section.

: : :

so, how have your lives been lately!? anything exciting? good valentine's days?

i was one of the lucky ones who was struck by the huge blizzard on the east coast. we had a six day weekend from school! :dance:

since i like to procrastinate, especially in terms of schoolwork, i'll just write about what i did [and provide photos to go along, oh mah goodness!?]. feel free to ignore my incessant babbling.

wednesday - first day off from school! i played in the snow with my twin and neighbors. we made a cult of snow angels and jumped on pine trees to knock the snow down. it was actually hilarious, because we were up to our knees in snow and could barely walk. haha.
thursday - spent some quality time with my mom, haha! and later i went to my boyfriend's best friend's house with the intention of sledding, but we ended up just chilling out and then heading to the movies to see edge of darkness. however, i couldn't tell you what it was about. all i really heard was something about a box of tarantulas, which i don't think is actually relevant to the movie at all.
friday - talked to the gallery manager of the straube center in new jersey about my gallery show in march! then i went bowling with my buddies. my boy and my best friend and her boy went bowling, and i rediscovered how bad i am at it. i don't really like bowling anyway - it's so germy! - but it was oodles of fun, haha.
saturday - didn't do much. i've been sick, and i felt particularly sick on saturday. my brother and i did go to the mall, though, and i got a cute sweater dress thing from H&M for $10.
sunday - [photo from friday] valentine's day! my boy and i spent some quality time together. he is absolutely the most amazing boy in the world, and i love him more than anything. today is our ten month anniversary!

and today i chilled with my friend zoë, and after watching "norma rae" on megavideo [for school, blehh], we translated german fanfiction stories into english using yahoo babelfish because it is straight up HILARIOUS. i'm not even kidding. you should try it.

now i need to go do work... sigh.

this was a ridiculously long journal entry! here's some tea/hot cocoa/coffee for those who made it through. :tea:

ryan,
being in love with you
is like sitting in front
of a fireplace
[i was angry and shivering before]
and ryan,
i lived for twenty years before you
i breathe the same air now
as i did then
but ryan,
i'm afraid i've forgotten
how to inhale
and exhale
without you.
dont go to barsher hips twirling in the candlelight, barely contained beneath tentative layers of sequined silk twinkle star bright, and while she writhes,
the very meaning of motion,
the soundless berating of everything you have ever doubted of love
(for there is love there, spoken in the language of full-to-bursting flesh)
moves over you in the waves of sweat cresting your collarbones,
tidal-waves of wanting only the impulses of your body betray -
in your eyes, there is nothing but echoes of sweet smoke and the charred, timber-brown residue of poppy flowers swaying,
like the serpents of her hips
in gentle spring breezes.
the curses of her skin are writing prophesies over the scars of the sky,
tomes and heresies to the greatness of man
with the scent of her womanhood
sweet as perfume
clogging the darkness through the parting of your lips -
there is no breath left in you,
only the deep incense off her warflags,
waving you down
with bullet-blasts of red lips
splashing,
swollen in their wanting of you




i am feeling incredibly stressed out right now because of school and college application/portfolio work, aaaaaggghh. i just want to have everything done and out of the way. thank god winter break is coming next week!

on another note, i created a facebook fan page for my photography. it's right here, if you wanna "become a fan": www.facebook.com/pages/Miss-De…

haha. yeah. i can't afford to host a website right now, so a facebook page will have to do until i can get a web domain name somewhere that isn't at a free place like freewebs or blogspot or something.

and i just wanted to say: if you want to get in contact with me, a dA note is probably not the best idea. instead, email me at miss.deathwish.photography@gmail.com , and i'll probably reply much more quickly. ^^

i'm gonna go bury myself in more art school (college) applications and homework now. /implodes/

i'm basically obsessed with watching lady gaga's music videos. i just think she's so cool, aahaha. the symbolism behind her work is awesome, and she's a great performer.

i started listening to her stuff early in the summer, before "the fame" was released, and i thought it was alright. it was catchy, so that's always good. my brother and i like stuff we can sing along to goofily / dance like idiots! XD

and her new album "the fame monster" is decent... i don't particularly like most of the songs, but "teeth" is SO GOOD. /frolics/


BUT YOU KNOW WHAT'S EVEN BETTER THAN LADY GAGA? well, a lot of things. BUT ESPECIALLY THE WEE SING VIDEOS.

oh my god. i love them.

i'm gonna go watch them instead of writing my english commentary paper... i'll start that around three a.m. or so. hahaaa.


AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE IS GREAT?!?! GLEE. AND IT'S ON TONIGHT. I'M A HUUUGE GLEEK. :'D

i loveeee love love mark salling's character (puck). i shouldn't, because he's a jerk. but i do. HOR HOR HORR.

also, the fact that glee is on wednesdays and then supernatural is the next day is basically THE BEST TV LINEUP EVER. even if jensen ackles just got engaged to that porny maxim actress lady danneel harris... XD as long as he's happy. plus, i don't mix up my obsession with him with that of the show. while they both involve him, they're separate obsessions. haha!


...haha, and if you couldn't tell, i've gotten to that stage of exhaustion where you're so tired that you are just going CRAZY and feel creepily hyper. bahahaha :V
