Hi I'm Mellissa and I'm 25. I graduated cum laude from the University of Akron with a BFA in painting/drawing and a minor in art history in May 2012=D I'm currently working on my MFA in painting at the Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University. I'm an illustrator and freelance artist ^ ^My favorite color is pink, and I think muffins are the cutest food ever!

Besides painting, I love printmaking and I plan on eventually owning a silkscreen to produce prints outside of the studio!
Lastly, I block trolls and overall mean people, so be warned! ;)

Interests

Patreon and Hair

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 26, 2014, 8:14 AM
Haaaaaay cupcakes! So I'm considering setting up a Patreon to help with my artistic things and also generating some income as I'm looking for new jobbies. The good thing is I'm set to start teaching a painting class in a few weeks :la: That's not a steady job, but it's only 2 hours per class and it has a base pay plus tips woot:dance:

So my question is: do any of your folks have a Patreon account? Are you a patron to any content creators? What's your take on it? 

In other news I've apparently neglected to show off mah new hairs to you all so BAM


All natural now (except for the Splat color of course :XD:

The medal is a symbol of my senior status. It can't be earned through time, it's awarded :) You can learn more about symbols and seniority here: help.deviantart.com/106/ and here: help.deviantart.com/29/

At this point I think he's being intentionally obtuse. But don't worry about him anymore :)

Sorry for randomly popping in...but it seems that guy is everywhere I'm going...

I think he believes, if he carries it on long enough, either
a) people will give up and allow deviantART to change, and/or
b) someone will throw a temper tantrum and he can begin to report users for bullying, using the temper tantrum as 'proof.' People will sympathize with him because he was bullied, thus helping his cause.


Honestly, I don't know why he keeps pressing for change. A large amount of people said no, and an art community reflects what the community wants, right? I don't understand why he can't go to another website with a community that wants what he wants to upload. Way less unnecessary conflict...
