My Daily Deviations so far in my time on DeviantArt.
The first is thanks to opioid and was given on my first night adding images to DA. I was uploading, and saw all the comments, and didn't realize right away what was happening.
The second is thank to Helewidis and is special to me, because it's a photo about my photography, which makes it not only very "Meta" but also very personal.
The third came as a total shock. It isn't my favourite image, but I'm proud of the variety it shows in my portfolio. Thanks to opioid for surprising the crap out of me.
The fourth was perhaps the biggest surprise, because I never expected to be honored this many times. Thanks to my friend ManuelaSoriani for suggesting it, and to cosfrog for featuring it.
The last isn't really my DD, but this seemed like the best place to mention it. At my suggestion, RockstarVanity awarded a DD to theadacat for an image we created together.
In July 2009, I began writing a graphic novel based on stories I have been working on for over a decade.
Say hello to Anne, and the Deathlings... My first comic book, with line art by ManuelaSoriani and MichelaDaSacco, color art by jurithedreamer, and covers by reubennegron and MischievousMartian.

Featuring: Kaitlyn Cross - KaitlynxCross
I'm very pleased to introduce Kaitlyn Cross. How many ways can I say it? I'm just so happy with this photo.
I'm comfortable saying this is my favourite work of the last year. If you're thinking of promoting me, or featuring me in any way, this is the one image I'm not ashamed to ask for help spreading around.
|A few of the images which I have nominated, that were chosen as Daily Deviations. (There have been quite a few, all listed in this collection.)|
Ian Struckhoff began writing his first graphic novel "The Deathlings: Anne's Story" on July 22nd, 2009. Since then, he has produced the first issues of that series, of an anthology of his comics short stories "Black Label Comics," and of the series "The Dark Age".
He is also currently working on the first issue of "Huginn & Muninn: Blood Brothers," a one-shot comic "Failsafe," and developing numerous series including "Rooftop Lily".
Ian X. is a self-taught fine art portrait photographer, who began his work at the turn of the Millenium while a student in the United Kingdom. He studied Philosophy at Reed College in Oregon, the University of St Andrews in Scotland, and the University of Sheffield in England. Born in New Hampshire, he now works out of a studio in Lawrence, MA and resides in Cambridge, MA.
When asked to describe his work, Ian responds, "I mostly take strange portraits of beautiful girls, or maybe it's the other way 'round. My constant themes have been contrast (both visual and conceptual), beauty, darkness, personality, and the unnatural or supernatural. The same character, whether it's the subject herself or a fictional creation, should be seen as both powerful and vulnerable-- either predator or prey-- within an instant."
