I've had this account for six years. I've learned so much in that period of time and have grown as an artist (and continue to!) partially thanks to this website. I have a lot of fond memories on this account, and a lot of old artwork that makes me smile to look back on. Because of wanting to look back on those art pieces, I've decided not to delete this account.
Particularly in these past few months I've went through a lot of change, and I feel like it's an appropriate and right time to change my deviantart account in representation to how I've grown as an individual and artist. It's a process I've been wanting to do for three years (my other username was created three years ago) but for one reason or another, I never made the switch.
I've made the transition, and I'm feeling really positive about it. It's a one worded screename, and is easier to type and read as opposed to Dreamsareinreach. I've started uploading my new illustrations to the other account, and will continue to do so. My schedule is pretty kind in time this year for my classes (side note: I graduate college with my major in Graphic Design and minor in Illustration this Spring!!) so I've had a lot of time to work on personal pieces. But getting back to the main topic, this is the last week I'll be checking my Dreamsareinreach account for messages and updates from you all (I'm still sorting through messages that're unread and clearing out my inbox).
A warm thanks to all of my friends and family on here and outside of this website who have been there for me these past few months in what have been the hardest and most heartbreaking moments of my life. You all are part of the reason why I'm so much stronger and confident as an individual today than I've ever been. Kudos to my inspirational and wonderful Mum and Dad for raising and creating this awesome person right here (and for being pretty awesome, themselves. Kudos to my Sister and Brother as well, for being amazing siblings to have and to continue to grow up with. I love you.)
If you've wondered why I haven't updated this deviantart account, it's because I'm on another one now!
I wanted to write a journal to notify you all about the transition- thank you again for all of the great experiences I've had while being Dreamsareinreach.
