As I'm not really active here and just don't get the site much anymore (in addition to art theft issues with myself and friends over the past 8 years never ending), I've decided it's time to move on to greener pastures.
I've put my work in storage (so it all still exists, just in case I need to bring it out and prove ownership again thanks to publishing dates) and may stop by from time to time to check out others' work, comment, or announce news when applicable.
It's been mostly lovely and I've met such brilliant artists here over the years. Many that I call really good friends. Now that we're all either into our 30s or looking at them (two years left -- feeling so Joey Tribbiani on this: 24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lh8… the climate here isn't the same for us as it used to be. It's a young person's haven, where the hep cats go to doodle. And it's always been that way. Just haven't got the time to devote to a community that isn't something work-related.
You can find me on Tuts+ with tutorials: tutorials.tutsplus.com/authors…
Facebook page: www.facebook.com/MaryWinklerAr…
And my website, whose content I'm still slowly filling in -- I hope to be up and running with weekly updates there as soon as I can break away from work.
Vectips and Skillshare should have upcoming tutorials and such from me as well.
If I can think of other places to find my work, I'll share them for sure. That's a lot of links for some art stalking, though.
