Don't know if ya remember me...

It's been ABOUT a year. 

Let me catch you up here really quickly and I'll be out of your hair. This is less of a "I'm back" message and more of a status update because I feel like I owe it to you.

I really miss you guys. And I really miss doing digital art. Here's the deal. I am essentially broke. I've been scraping by this year and while I'm not complaining, there is no way I'll be able to do any more art anytime soon. I can't afford to get the tools necessary for it and the job I work is mostly seasonal, so I certainly won't be making enough to really justify buying a computer and tablet and what have you. For that reason, I am officially asking you to request a refund if I owe you any art. I know it's irresponsible of me to not have the information on hand regarding who I owe what to, and I am very sorry. It's just me and my itty bitty phone for now. 

Just because I have stopped doing digital art for the time being doesn't mean I've stopped art entirely. I've actually been spending this year painting a LOT, and I've even had a few shows in town. I'm hoping to potentially make some money off of that this season and maybe some day find my way back to you guys, but I can't guarantee it. Unfortunately, with everything that's gone down this year, I don't feel as attached to the LanieJ art style that I used to like so much. It just begs to be stolen because it's easy to copy, since it's mainly inspired by Disney's style to begin with. I am NOT saying anything is wrong with fan artists and disney-styled artists. I just don't feel like that's who I am anymore. And I really feel so bad saying that. I just want to be 100% honest with you all. So, over the next few months, things could go one of three ways:

One: This account, once trades and commissions have been saved by their owners, gets deactivated. 

Two: All fanart hits the road and I start over. 

Three: I put everything on private and come back to it later. 

I have no idea what to do, but every time I think about this account I get a pit in my stomach. I feel guilty for how I left you all, I feel embarrassed because I have changed so much and this art is a part of me, for sure, but it no longer represents me, and a lot of you are mad. I understand. However, coming back to rape threats and hate mail is under no circumstances okay.

I just can't keep up. It's my own fault for digging myself in to this hole, I know. That's why I really would like to make amends and give you a refund if I can. You can contact me at laniej.deviantart@gmail.com. Even if you just want to say hi, you're welcome to send a message. 

While I may not remember what I owe off the top of my head, I will certainly recognize you once you jog my memory! 

Once again, I'm sorry. This whole situation in incredibly immature on my part and I certainly hope I can make it up to you.

Even though it might not seem like it, I really love you guys, even including the people who left threats in my inbox. ;)

Welcome To My Page!

My name's Lanie! I've been on DA for about 21/2 years, now, and have met some of the most incredible artists and people on here! I have never met such a kind and supportive community, and I love each and every one of you.

My art style is mainly cartoony and feline focussed, but I am trying my best to branch out! My personal style outside of DA is a different story! I'll share it eventually, but I'm not there, yet. ;)

If you'd like to get to know me, don't be shy! I'm always happy to be there if you need to talk something out, whether we've talked before or not! Or if you just want to chat, feel free to send me a note or comment! :)

Thank you again for stopping by! Have a wonderful rest of your day!
