15,000 PAGEVIEWS + Appreciation Post!Well guys, I recently hit over 15,000 pageviews. This is a milestone for me. I have come so far since I joined deviantART on September 17th in the year 2010. I have seen some amazing art, met some amazing and inspiring people, made a ton of new friends, and improved dramatically in my art.
When I first joined 4 years ago, I was an aspiring young artist who didn't know what proportions were, among several other things XD. But I have pushed myself and improved, becoming a better artist than I could have ever imagined. And I will only get better.
Sometimes, I will sit an think about my journey. dA has been life-changing experience for me. I have met so many wonderful, wonderful people. I wouldn't be the artist, or the person, I am today if I hadn't met them. Anyone who has ever watched me, gave me a Llama Badge, faved my artwork, or commented on my art has inspired me to keep making art.

The Coffee GodThe Coffee God behind the counter shuffles foot to foot, a dance of steam and espresso. Black painted fingernails, inch gauged ears and a gray striped sweatshirt, hood crooked on his back. There's a cigarette tucked behind one ear; it bobs and twitches with each step.
“Non-fat caramel latte,” he calls, just as he always does, part of a spell, part of a mantra, toneless (just a tuck at the end). I reach. He looks up.
The espresso maker hisses.
There's something like a grin, something like a spark, something like a shared secret linked eye to eye. When he passes over the drink (rough cardboard sleeve hot to the touch), he lingers. Our fingers brush, a shiver, a jolt, a ten-watt shock.
The Coffee God tilts his chin, shouts, “Hey, mind if I take my break now?”
and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine. I follow him out the door.
Keep in Touch!
