Journal History

Enjoy a Cup

Tue Sep 1, 2015, 6:09 PM

I have felt for a while that my journals tend to have a whiny feel. I do not know if they come across that way or not, but I did want to have one that was somewhat more upbeat.
I want to say first of all that in the near future, and actually it has already started, you will start seeing some of my older work. I will be uploading these as I get them edited. It is a long process, I have to scan each frame then edit, fix, and play with each one. But I am determined to get all these negatives scanned. I am having fun seeing them again. I truly hope that you enjoy them as they get uploaded. I put a couple up today.
I also know that I have 18 more months as a Premium Member of deviantArt, :devart:. I am planning on making the most of them by featuring many artists, the true core of :devart: I see the core of deviantArt as those artists, those deviants who come to this site and share, give advice, comment, nurture and support the other deviants here, not because they have paid what used to be a small sum to do away with ads and a few other percs. So for the next 18 months I am going to try to make as many friends as I can. 
As a start I want to feature for something that is very near to my I start each day with a cup of coffee. I have many ways to make a cup, but do not have a Kuerig or Naspresso. I do have a burr grinder and a espresso machine. I have several different stove-top makers and many percolators, electric and stove-top.  I have french press and cold press. I have vacuum pots, and more than one pour over methods. If you have questions I even have answers. 

So have a cup, maybe two. Think about how this site is changing and hope that it does not change beyond recognition. 
If you see anything you like go say hello to the deviant and tell them you like their work. It takes a little time but will be worth it.

:iconheidi: :iconkatasihk:  Coffee to the COREFor those who are upset about CORE, you're right. We should have made a more formal announcement when we released to express the new CORE brand and what it means to us and you, and if nothing else in the interest of transparency. More information about CORE to follow this week. But even more importantly, you will see the release of many new Timeline elements that will give you much greater transparency into DeviantArt's direction as a whole. 
Let's talk about coffee for a minute. Cuz it's Saturday, and I woke up and thought about coffee a lot this morning.
I bought a Nespresso machine a few months back. Boy do I like it. I also like my french press. The thing is, Nespresso capsules cost $1.10 and make 1 cup, and I tend to drink two cups in the morning. When I wake up, and on the drive to DA HQ. I've had this theory that I should drink Nespresso on mornings that I work, and I should use the french press in the evenings and on weekends when I have more time. Because the nespresso sa

It's been an interesting journey to get to this point in life...
I received a degree in art many years ago and love photography, I also enjoy painting, drawing, and printing when I can get the chance. I have a library full of books that just are waiting to be read or reread. I enjoy movies (when I can stay awake for them). While I enjoy many different genres, film noir is by far my favorite. I tend not to be a snob about my catagorization of the genre, and will readily include neo-noirs into the list.
I have been told that I have a bad attitude. I don't think that's true, but who am I to say. I do tend to be anti-social. It is something that I used to try to work on but now am learning to embrace it. I do try to be friendly with my neighbors and the those I have to work with. I find that, aside from some fellow deviants, I don't have much to say to others.
My wonderful wife is also an artist, please visit her gallery here you can also see my daughters work here cat-like-thief-182.deviantart.….

I share my home with 3 cats and a sometime stray who comes in to eat and nap.
