It’s been a little while since I dabbled in something I call Multimedia Digital Art. What that means is, I’ve clustered together a different brush to create an image of something real. It’s like mixing paints or something along those lines. However, instead of paints and such, I used brushes that represent a different image. Of course the background layer is my own mixture of color as a base, but you get the gist. I’ve fooled around with different types of effects as well, so this is new and exciting after so many years of doing the same thing over and over again.

I do hope you enjoy the few I have thus far.

Check out my Facebook website if you’d like to see more of these!
Come by the shop as well (in the navigation bar, click Shop) to purchase the image on a variety of house hold items, such as pillow shames, clocks, mugs, and other fine things!

Thanks so much for your support you guys! It’s certainly what keeps the projects going and sharing more frequent!

A lot of people think that they have an alternate persona, a different personality that is still within them, in their control and ultimately a much better self. Personally I think we all enjoy the idea of being someone else; even to the point of looking like someone we (in our present state) do not resemble.

This persona/character, whatever you’d like to call it, gives many people courage, inspiration, strength, and an otherwise interesting life. Of course we don’t act out their world as they would never act out ours (why would they, are we not the lesser of them?)

The reason why I think some who do dress and act, even develop this need to bring the character to life in this reality, is because we personally need them in certain times of our lives. It seems like a mental disorder to some, but for those who have mental disorders themselves, it is a sort of cure/treatment. This is our way to relieve the tensions, the bad thoughts, and even improve our lifestyles.

Many people would not approve, nor agree to this sort of behaviour. Even accepting the idea of their loved ones, friends, and or colleagues having an alternate persona seems a bit outrageous. Why cant they be normal they say.

Here’s why we can’t be normal, because the very idea of being the same as everyone else is just ludicrous. It is because of routine, social pressure that we have been told that who we are, is just not good enough, so we must conform and look like something else. So, in that, we have someone else in place of us. This character who has the power to fly, heal, and create. This is someone who can impact the world and be loved by many! So why would we want to remove this character from our lives, when you wont love us for who we are…normally?

I have a persona. She is Crimson-Valkyrie.
A fierce warrior, a creator, lover, and whimsical creature unlike any you’ve seen. Her companion is a night owl, and her muse is comical in his own sense. She’s not perfect, but she’s not weak either. She wants to show you the real meaning of beauty in you and the world. She wants to inspire and give you the strength to make your own magic, to bring those dreams come true.

For my dears, I say, why not take a moment and explore your imagination to find your alternate persona? Maybe your imaginary friend was this person and they never really did go away.

Dream on.
