Forget apologizing for being behind and saying I'm trying to catch up. Let's just assume from now on that I'll always be behind and trying to catch up, okay? :D

On to other subjects. The holidays are coming up way too fast. If you're looking for a really special gift, I have to say that finding someone willing to custom-make something for that special someone on your list is awesome. Or failing that, at least finding something unique and hand-made. DeviantArt is fantastic for this.

I go nuts trying to come up with gifts for the people I care about. They're all very tough to shop for. One of those people is my utterly wonderful husband. And this is where I turn my journal into an unsolicited ad for another dA member: :iconcosmicfolklore: CosmicFolklore. I saw one of his stunning ouroboros pieces:
Ouroboros in 8 Necklace by CosmicFolklore
and just knew that something like that would be perfect for my husband. I contacted him, and he worked with me to find a combination of materials and style that my husband would enjoy and I could afford. As a result, I have a one-of-a-kind, utterly stunning gift for the most special person in my life. If he were here, I would give him a :hug: but instead, I'll have to settle for telling all you other holiday shoppers about people like him. Go give him or another dA artist your business this holiday season. Instead of supporting a mega-manufacturer that assembly-lines stuff, support an artist.

And on that note, here's today's feature of a bunch of amazing dA artists who sell their work (prints or otherwise) here or on other sites. Today is part 1, a bunch of artists whose usernames begin with A, all pulled from the list of folks I have on watch here. (More to come in later installments!) If there's an artist I missed that you want to support this holiday season, link to them!

I love that you suggested that we should support artists instead of mega-manufacturers this season. Way to have unique pieces of artwork!
