Twitch... Picarto... and One Million?

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 4, 2016, 5:00 PM


So... It's been awhile since i've done a proper journal. Not even sure how many people actually read them, But I wanted to drop in for a sec.

Firstly just to get it out of the way.. Like the title implies I have been streaming lately on Twitch. Had been using picarto for a while and still think it's a good site.. its growing and evolving into something nice, even if there are a few things it still lacks from the old BlogTV days. #ripblogtv i.e. free co-hosting, full page customization, etc... But after many suggested I try twitch I've gone ahead and set it up so I can stream art there. I also even occasionally stream myself (and sometimes friends) playing games as well on xbox and such. So if you're one of the many that enjoy watching streams whether Art or Gaming related maybe come check it out.

Hit it with a sub so you'll see the next time I go live. --> www.twitch.tv/fooray

And secondly and most importantly, I wanted to say thank you to all of you.. and any of you that have checked out my work over the years.
Checked out Podcasts, and Comic Strips, sketchbooks and whatever else I've been apart of while on Deviantart. Because of the community here I've stuck around for over 11 years on this site.
Seen a lot of people come and go, Made actual long lasting friendships with many of my fellow deviants. I'm Glad (My now girlfriend of 7 years) itskanoe convinced me to Join Deviantart all them years ago.
I Even got a best bud and Part-time roommate out of the deal. (The artist formally known as The theCHAMBA a.k.a theCHAMBA) Started a podcast with said Chamba and the legendary...Truly beastly! Robert "Robaato" Porter in the C.L.A.S.S.A.C.T. podcast. If anyone remembers what that acronym stands for gets like a million points. Not even sure if I do fully, but at least it resulted in a sketchbook. ( still available on Amazon.com beeteedub )

Overtime evolved to the currently still ongoing ChipperChapChat Podcast with myself and Chamba and guests here and there. And one of the things I'm most proud of on dA... SKRATCHJAMS! Which I gotta say.... I really think it's Fuggin RAD that you guys continue to participate in the jams there.
Not only participate but Step your game up all the time and challenge yourselves and each other. So many of those jams organically get people engaged with each other just by doing fanart of each other's creations.
Challenge yourselves with new designs and layouts for your pieces. Really.. Really! Proud of what you all do there, Seriously!

Now all that was a stupidly long and gushy way of leading to I just sometime recently crossed the 1,000,000 page view count on my front page. For a lot of my peers that day came and went a long time ago and I get that, BUT I gotta say I still understand how tough it is to get eyes on the work you put out. There's a lot of artists on dA and around the world that are better than I am and get less exposure. So I really understand and appreciate it. Thank you for all your support and I hope you all continue to stick around as I strive to grow in my artistic capabilities and just as a human in general, and I hope to watch you all do the same!

Thanks again. Hope you continue to dig it!
