Since Everyone's been pming about the story I am writing, here's the link. Any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated.…

Just smile and Nod’s Genres are: Young Adult, Physiological, Adventure, Suspense, Abuse, and Young Love


I love to draw, write, paint, do photography, and a hundred other things.

I get migraines from Mercury Poisoning and unfortunately I go blind in one eye when I get a spell. (profile pick ;P) But for the most part, my sight goes back to normal and I am most thankful for that. Got to be able to draw ;)

As much as I love my fellow deivants, Imgur and Funnyjunk have helped me grow and get notice around the world- so a big shout out to them! But all around, everyone has been real supportive of me (especially since I'm still a beginner at comics/digital art) and I can't stress my thanks enough.

If you have a critique, by all means share it with me- any chance to make my work better is welcomed.

Message me if you have any questions or just want to say hi.

In a few days I leave for Japan! I bought the tickets last minute and will be leaving Thursday night. Woohoo.  Last time I went, I back-packed through all of the main land, staying in ryokans (traditional Japanese ins) and jumping from Tokyo, Nagoya, Kyoto, and just past Fukuyama. Bullet trains, back-packs, and food on the go all the way! This time I want to visit a couple of the Southern Ryukyu islands, Okinawa included.

If anyone has any ideas and recommendations, I'm all ears. I'm a hiker, adventure, and will eat about anything. Last year I was in Korea and pretty much lived off of pickled pigs feet and eel. :) (Smile)

Also I finally decided to make an instagram so everyone knows what project I am currently working on. Though I draw on this site, I also write on Wattpad, Make comics for my tumblr blog/Imgur, and make Solar System Models & Jewlery on Etsy. When I'm not doing that stuff... I'm trring to escape the world and travel.

I get loads on messages from people who haven't heard from me in ages, but the truth is I'm just focused on another platform at the moment. Fianly I relazed I should combine everything (at least in updates and photos) so that's what I'm going to use instgram for.  There are no posts yet as I just made it, but I'll be changing that soon.

If you wouldn't mind following me, I'd be much obliged! I'd love a chance to better share and connect with people.

I will also be uploading my Japan trip there if anyone's interested.

Let me know if you guys have any recommendations or places to visit over there. :) (Smile) 12540906 966612200064919 6248021070907101178 N by Ristay

This has nothing to do with deviantart (your art is awesome btw) but Just Smile and Nod is amazing! I always get really excited when I get the alert on my cell phone from Wattpad. The writing is amazing and you have such a way with words. I am a huge reader and can honestly say that Just Smile and Nod is one of, if not the, best book I have ever read. I always find myself rereading it. I love Alys' character. And the way her and Hayden's relationship has progressed seems natural. It's in no way rushed and seems extremely well thought out. Keep up the amazing work!!!

You tell some fabulous stories.

I was online and my husband called me to the other room to read this comic he'd pulled up on Imgur.  We both laughed so hard I thought I thought I might pee.

I saw you were a deviant.  :)

So now I must subscribe.  You are hilarious and having been a terribly socially-awkward child/adult, I feel a strange kinship to you.  Wish I'd found this sooner.

Thank you for the laughs.   :creepygrin:

Your comics was aassom(awesome), damn you made me laugh so hard, i couldn't stop laughing at the shit story and it was hard to breathe, not sure did i die for choking and continuing my life in another dimension atm. :D its was pure epicness.

I'm glad you didn't encounter dickbutt when you was younger ( well it wasn't created yet )
i'm sure it would have been another laughable story. "Dickbutts everywhere" while you are dancing under the rainbow.
Anyway continue doing your stuff, i enjoyed a lot of your comics.
Sincerely : Random Imgurian

1# My english sucks.
2# You are beautiful.

I've only seen your "When I was little" comics in bits and drabs over some time, but as soon as I encountered a post on Imgur with a link to your Deviantart page, I just had to follow! 

I thoroughly enjoyed your short stories via those comics and would most certainly want to read some more!
