Whilst I'm still in the mood for journal updateyness, I may as well add this MUA feature I was included in from 2012, which I only stumbled across the other day. Better late than never!
Body Art PE: Featured Makeup & Special Effects
The wicked talented BeccyBex is a makeup artist who is better known for her out-side-the-box take on the human canvas. Probably more recognized for her Avant-Garde work.
Lovely andreaperrybevan has been dazzling dA with her skills since 2008! Her credits include multiple publications and her gallery will not disappoint.

Cindy C interviewed me for a MUA feature on her fabbi make-up blog. As always, I'm very chuffed to be included in such things, 'tis always flattering to say the least!

Not much else to report, really. Slowly but surely recovering from my recent spinal surgery (hence my lack of artwork submissions lately), and a long way to go yet. Considering the Dr's had to work hard to pull me back from the void due to an unknown anesthetic allergy and near fatal reaction (no end of tunnel white light stories to tell, unfortunately), I'm lucky to be here to tell the tale. So I count each day now as a blessing, even more so than ever, and have a new spiritual lease on life. Pain and lack of movability still hinders my ability to get back into make-up work full time, but my art journal is full to the brim with concepts and design drafts, which I'll put to good use in some way or other, and very soon.
In the meantime, I am so happy to see the high level of art that is still being posted here on dA. This site is far from dead in that respect. The mind blowing talent and creative beauty that humans are capable of never ceases to amaze and inspire, which forever restores faith and hope, and gives me a reason to keep going with my own artistic journey, and my life in general. To those wonderful souls, even if you don't realise it, just know that somewhere, somehow, you touched someone's life with your art, and that's an encouraging thought in its own right... Even if it's just one person, someone out there at least is watching. Have a quick look through my faves, hopefully you will find some wonderful inspiration there for yourself.
UPDATE: I'm happy to report that I have finally forked out a large chunk of money for a decent brand spanky new, state of the art compact digital camera. So no more embarrassing iPhone captures of my work.
My make-up work has been featured in Issue 4 of Fire Mass Magazine. Grab yourself a copy here: www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/…
