Oh wow, it's been a while. I'm not going to apologise, you're bored of that.
Frankly, I'm not active on dA very much at all these days. I've just completed a three year degree (I'm now a Bachelor of Music!) and I'm about to start a one-year teaching course. I've migrated to Tumblr for the most part, and I just simply haven't been uploading things or checking messages. Now that I'm looking, I feel pretty bad about leaving you all hanging, and I'm sorry about that. I will go through and answer comments.
I've unsubscribed from dA because I wasn't using it enough for it to be worth my money, but I may resubscribe if it becomes useful again - for example, if I want to do commissions.
I will (try to remember to) upload a few pictures I've done this year, and there is a cake coming soon. But honestly, I'm not going to make any promises about how much I'll use the site. If I am to come back here I'll need to clear out a lot my backlog (12,175 messages, whooooh), and frankly I don't have much time to spare.
If anyone would like my Tumblr url, please send me a note and we can swap urls.
