I like to think I am very picky on my favorites, I hope you take the time to give these people a look. They have sparked something in me, so I believe given the chance they will do the same for you.





Sorry i haven't been sharing art on here lately, it's been a tough year for me with animal rescues and barely surviving this corporate economy. In the past, I tried to embrace this site and was truly enjoying the community until i witnessed how the some of the staff here deals with bullies and trolls. I have since decided to stop sharing my art online all together. I honestly had high hopes that by sharing my art and putting it up for sale would; one, help me survive and... 2, help me feel like i was not wasting my time on a dream that I could not accomplish. In fact it lead me into deep depression when I realized no one is buying anything and I found that the community leader [at the time] was actually supporting the very bullies I was reporting. Even rewarding said bully/troll with senior membership. Either way, I have started doing art again, but I haven't decided yet if i will be sharing any of it here. Best of luck to all my fellow artist and I hope with all my heart that all of you find your dreams.

United States
Who am I? I am whatever my imagination allows me to be. I also happen to be a 41 year old kid with too many things to do and not enough time to do them. My name is Calliope Reeves Alien Budd, Born in Eden, North Carolina and raised in Asheville, North Carolina USA. I received a degree in Graphic Arts & Advertising Design from South Western Community College in Sylva, NC, USA class of 1992. I joined DeviantArt March 23 of 2009 sharing my art for the 1st time with the online world. I joined Redbubble as CReevesABudd in December 2009, and now I am on Zazzle as of February 2010. I am also on :D
What's my Artistic passion? To learn all I can and expand my abilities to better the connection of my imagination vs my hands limitations.
Why did I get into art? I have always been into art, I can't imagine my life without it...
How do you inspire yourself? everything in life offers some form of inspiration, I have found my biggest challenge is getting started. I set goals for myself daily to create something new to get past the starting point.
Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years? Above ground, outside of that I would love to have the ability to improve my life through my art <aka> making money on it... I have always dreamed of publishing my own art book of my life's works.

Your DA Best Friend by CReevesABudd

I was thinking tonight of positive remarks to make in my shout box and just wanted to share the current ones with my watchers... I have been trying hard to keep a positive attitude in a harsh world and these were what has kept me going in some of my darker times so I thought maybe they were worthy of sharing... I apologize for using news instead of what would seem better suited for journals, but those that know me, know i use my journal more as an [add plate] for information instead of an actual journal [I blame those lovely journal skins] but at any rate... here is my small list of things I tell myself to help keep me from going crazy...

1) Don't give up on your dreams, every day you work towards them, puts you one day closer to them becoming real.

2) There is no failure for within each mistake lies a lesson learned which contains far greater value then any masterpiece could hope to give you.

3) Spread the happiness within your heart by treating others as you would wish to be treated...

4) It's NEVER too late to start, might as well do what you can while you can.

5) The only real enemy that exists is the one within your own mind...Believe in others and they will believe in you.

I wish you all the best and hope that the happiness finds you on your way through this world... live your dreams!

thanks so much, i rarely like any of what I do, vision in my head is different then what I can put to paper... thanks for the kind words they are the ones that keep me inspired to keep trying... sorry btw for delayed reply, I have had a harsh life lately and trying to get back on my feet.

I will be taking a break from my artwork, not sure if I want to spend any more time doing something that makes me feel invisible. After the car accident, I can't even come close to my style anymore, and I have spent so much time on it and feel like I have accomplished nothing. I guess I am coming to realize that Sometimes life isn't about "getting back on the horse", sometimes it's about accepting that "you don't have a horse." Time for me to walk on into the sunset...
