I haven't been as active on deviantART in the last two years. Mostly, this is due to work. I have done some art work, but wanted to catch up on messages before posting them. I finally caught up on all my messages and will be posting some new work soon.
After some consideration, I have made a decision that I can no longer keep up with all the messages I receive. To that end, I will no longer be replying to favorites. I very much appreciate them and do review who send them to me to see new work, but I feel awkward replying to them, sometimes several months after receiving them.
I will continue to reply to comments and answer questions, hopefully in a more timely manner.
