cat_o_wen's Journal


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Life is too short...

"I am addicted to Adobe Photoshop and in this journal you will primarily find postings of my creations in my public entries. My personal rants are kept to 'Friends Only' to spare the innocent. I'm a forty-something who decided to go back to college and earn a degree in Design. (what was I thinking waiting this long? *laughs*) My major fandoms are The Musketeers, King Arthur, Merlin, A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones), Legend of the Seeker (The Sword of Truth), Lord of the Rings, Revolution, Sleepy Hollow, historical fiction - Arthurian Legends, Downton Abbey, Sherlock Holmes, Falling Skies, Hawaii Five-0, Once Upon A Time, and a few handsome actors. I am also a photographer and part-time writer, so you might see a bit of that here as well. I appreciate and crave feedback and sometimes accept requests. If you want to use any of my work, please do not hotlink. Save the icons/wallpapers to your own server. Credit is also very nice. :-)"
