My DeviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 4:09 PM
Gather around, deviants, and let auntie Jessie tell you the tale of her time here on DeviantART
Harumph 

It all started nine years ago...

October 2, 2004 to be exact. I had to do the math to figure it out, but that was the start of my junior year of college. It seems strange to me that it was only then; it feels like dA has always been a part of my life. I can't remember why or how I stumbled across dA or what I did with my time when I first started, but I do know when it got real good.

The Chats

About a year after joining dA I started lurking in the chats; mostly #Thumbshare. It was there that I met two of the most important people in my life: Nestalgica and BiKaZe. Max in particular became super-important when he helped me launch our project dAZine. DaZine, in turn, attracted a slew of new friends, including the other two members of our dA Family, kaotickell and LouieHitman. The five of us have grown very close over the years and spend a lot of time scheming and talking outside of dA now. In fact, Nestalgica even lets me come visit him every once in a while :meow:
#Thumbsshare also introduced me to other awesome friends, such as VintageWarmth, Ikue, shebid, admx, Clovdyx, DaPineapple, LawnyJ, mossi-mo, SadisticIceCream, The-Egg, and VintageWarmth. More recently I've added friends like AshleyxBrooke, justsomedude86, and plasmid1 (or 12, he's been demoted a few times). Many of them have, like me, grown up and found/had to get lives that take them away from dA and/or dAmn, but many I still keep up with thanks to the powers of Facebook. 

The Forums

In the last year or so I've also started lurking around some of the forums (mostly General Art, Digital Art, Software, and Hardware). I've found there are a lot of people in need of help and I'm starting to realize, being old (by internet standards) and seriously experienced in comparison, I've got a lot I can give back. So I've found it very fun to help other deviants in this way.

The Art

Of course I still post art every once in a while, but not as much as I used to. That's simply because 90% of my artistic energies go towards my job, and most of that stuff isn't really stuff I can post. It bothers me sometimes that my gallery is so heavy on my old works (many over 10 years old) but alas, life is rough as an adult. Little by little, though, I'm working on my own stuff, and prioritizing my art. Someday you'll even start to see chapters of Ten Reborn posted!

And that's all I hafta say about that.


Features!

Since we're talking about my history here, let's start out with my first favorites ever:

Jessie Hockett
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
Yo. I'm Jessie, better known to my peers as Nutty. I'm a Graphic Designer for a local college where I produce everything from flyers, posters, brochures and marketing materials to original artwork for plays and productions.

However I work as a designer so that I can do what I was born to do: Play hockey. Nine months out of the year I'm traveling virtually every weekend to play for any and all teams that need a goalie. Some call me a whore, but I prefer the term "freelance goalie".

When it comes to my personal art I tend to dabble in everything I can get my hands on. Sculpture is my favorite though I don't currently have a studio to work in. I also enjoy digital painting and illustration, vector, and drawing. I do have a tendency to start monster projects but then get distracted by new monster projects.
Interests

Commission/Request Policy

I do accept commissions/requests... sometimes. Depending on my work and hockey travel schedule, I may accept small commissions and requests.

I do not have a set price for them, but I do ask that you donate either points or real money via PayPal according to how much you think I deserve. Think I did a great job? Donate what you can. Think I did so-so? Donate accordingly. Want to be a complete douche and insult my work? Leave a llama. I just won't be held responsible for broken or missing limbs. :paranoid:

Really, all I'm asking for is your respect. I have dozens of other projects and things like sleep I'm setting aside for your request. If you can respect that, then I can respect your personal financial status and/or opinions of my work.

I don't play hockey, but I love it!
Who's your favorite NHL team? I like St. Louis, but we have a local ECHL team!
