Hi, I'm Gillian. An artist and mother. I am in love with silverbane/Reignson . We met on DeviantART in 2004. We live together in Indiana with our son. I have a dream of some day owning my own studio/gallery that looks like the interior of the 11th Doctor's TARDIS. I love Science Fiction, Fantasy, British Comedies, gaming, and anything with a bad sense of humor. I am obnoxious. I write long winded responses. I love CSS.
If you would like prints of my art, visit my Etsy store and send me a convo.

My deviantART Story

Fri Aug 8, 2014, 7:13 AM
I joined this site in 2003, it was suggested to me by my roommate and best friend, dream-dangerous (I have no idea what she did to get banned, but she was pretty snarky, I bet she pissed off the wrong person).  We're no longer friends, see snarkiness and pissing off wrong people thing.  She was a terrible friend when I think back on it.

I used to be gibberstoadzdoll, I named myself after my initials GIB and I was engaged to Toadling (<s>he no longer uses this site, so I guess it is safe to 'mention' him, lols</s>).  I retained the name for a long time, not wanting to lose all my watchers and those I was watching.  But finally, I could not stand seeing his name up there any more.

The aforementioned Dream-Dangerous introduced me to silverbane because his profile pic looked like a young Keifer Sutherland, and he is a good artist.  We were all in a coloring book club called BigFatKitty .  He and I started talking and fell into dA loves.  Nine years later and we have a seven year old son together.  dA has been a part of my life for close to a decade.

I became involved with the dA community in 2010 when Silverbane bought me my first Premium Membership for Valentine's Day.  I began to code journal skins and joined a ton of skinning groups and dArelated groups.  Before that, I would casually post my art and comment and fave things a bit and that was my extent of dA usage.  Journal skinning has given me something to contribute to the greater community and I love it.  I've learned a lot here from my peers and in turn have taught others what I know.  I have made a lot of friends on dA that I consider to be real friends.  It would be awesome to meet them in person someday.  I would love to go to a dAmeet some time, but I don't really live near anything.

So, that is my dA story.  I came here with friends, lost those friends, found true love and made new friends.  As my life evolved, so did dA, side by side.  I love you, dA!

I could not possibly feature everyone who has made an impact on me here on dA.  So many wonderful people who I truly consider to be friends.  We've shared jokes and never ending conversations for years.  You make me smile and sometimes even cry.  I value our friendships greatly.  Even though many of you I will never meet in person, our paths have crossed and well met.  Thank you for your kindnesses and critiques, thank you for the laughs and all the years of friendship we've had.

Love, Gillian
