  8. What are your preferred tools to create art? camera, pencil

  9. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Looking at stuff on deviantart or pinterest

  10. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? It's not as big of a deal now... but years ago dA didn't show any nudity. It was a big deal to show nudity even tasteful artistic kind. I had originally posted this image without the censorship. In reality not a big deal, nothing too special about the photo. At the time I was exploring using lighting techniques and the model was not shy about her body. But the image blew up because of a small slit of her vagina showing close. It was a big protest on the boards and te image was removed. In protest I reposted the image with censored and it blew up again with comments and people liking that I put censored on it. I think the image even got DD but at the time it made DD they didn't give the awards they do now. I enjoyed the time and it felt good to be one of the people on dA that helped get things changed. I had lots of discussions with admins and such at the time. 

Censored by IllustratedEye
#DeviantArtistQuestionnaire 
It's been brought to my attention to a very old journal from 2009 that I haven't updated my policy on the use of my images.

I have a general policy that if you wish to do a drawing of my photographs, go for it.  In my mind if you are doing a drawing you are creating an image and art in your own right.

In regards to manipulation, if you are creating a work of art I am ok with this too.  I mean real digital manipulation.  For example: 
Dancing Cat by IllustratedEye


No, I do not give a general carte blanche to use my images as sign tags, skins and have not.  
Thank you,

The Illustrated Eye

Just know it WILL get better.

And if you see it happening don't just ignore it, do something about it.
Most states have laws regarding ALL forms of bullying and harrasment.

whew! i did 2 mile run today... @ 17:56 minutes! woot! Maxed the run for army pt standards for my age :) That was my goal. Now I gotta set my goal for doing 5 miles every Friday (been doing 4 on fridays, 3 on wed and spin class on Monday).  My short little legs were booking the last mile lol, was doing 10-9 minute per mile the first mile than 9-8 the last mile.

Man I'm really having a hard time getting my heart rate to go past 150 now though lol.  A friend suggested sprints so going to try some next week I think.

Happy New Year

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 5, 2010, 8:22 PM


well! it's a new year!  Happy new year everyone!
Starting the new year with go go keep on working out ;)  NY Resolution is to get six pack.

I LOVE the Jillian Michael's 30 day shred work out.  Just bought 2 more of her dvd's, can't wait to try them!  She's my favorite trainer, if you want an awesome workout def try the 30 day shred.  You don't need much, though i would suggest a matt for the ab workouts.  And you'll need 2lb weights.  If you normally work out, 5 lb weights are better.

Diabetes update

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 21, 2009, 4:34 PM


well i had my diabetes update today.  It's been 9 months since i was diagnosed with it.
Let me put this into perspective.
August 2009 (1 year ago) I weighed 181 lbs.
December 31st i was diagnosed with diabetes.  ( i had lost about 30 lbs on my own- had changed my diet a little as i knew i was eating bad and it'd kill me...)  I weighed 151 at that time.
My FASTING sugar was 323, A1C 9.6.
I started walking...  started a 1200 cal low carb diet.
I was put on 2 medicines for the diabets, taking 6 pills a day.
Cholestoral 178/HDL 15...

Today my FASTING sugar 85, A1C 5.6.  I am not taking any medicine for diabetes or cholestoral.
HDL 44 (yay) 120- bad cholestoral (still needs more work)
and i weigh 107lbs.  not loosing weight now but still loosing inches and gaining muscle.  lol the nutritionist was going crazy on how my arms look lolol.  and they asked if i'd do a video of success for them :)

Just wanted to share and tell yall it CAN be done.  just takes determination and life change.  YOU CAN DO IT!

oh yah and my pulse at rest was 95... now it's 66 :)

so last week i was chatting with some friends and we were talking about my weight loss and clothes.  One of the girls i was talking with, she's VERY tiny.  I mentioned that now i can shop in the juniors/misses department for clothes and they fit well.  She said she can buy in the kids department.  We laughed...

Yesterday i went clothes shopping, i needed a new jacket.  On a whim cause of what she said we went to the actual kids department in macys.  Well... guess what? lmao i can now wear kids cloths too HAHA  And clothes run cheaper haha!  I got a nice kids jacket for $44 :)  It's gray plaid.  There was also an ADORABLE line sweatshirt that i almost got- it's red with black skulls with bows on it and silver glitter stars.  i might go back and get that next week /snicker.

Aerostatle though still has a sweatshirt i want to buy that's super snuggly.

Sweats are becoming my new best friend, lately i've been cold ALL the time so bought a sweatshirt and 2 pairs of capri sweats so i don't have to hem them. heheh.  Being short sucks ;)
