DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 11, 2015, 5:48 PM

What's New

This is a couple weeks late, but I had the best birthday present from dA this year, my first ever Daily Deviation for If Music... by Katjakay Thank you to everyone for all the favs and comments, and the absurd amount of attention I got for a couple days. And especially thank you to :iconerzsabet: for featuring me.

Deviant Art Questionnaire

To celebrate dA’s 15 years they have put out a questionnaire, and here it is.

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?    I started dA in May of 2005 so 10 years now.

  2. What does your username mean?  I used to play on Neopets and since I hate using numbers in names, I would just make things up, I love the name Katja, but it was already taken, so I added “kay” to the end to make it unique, I ended up loving the sound of it, so it became my name here and eventually a lot of other sites as well.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.  Quiet crafty nerd

  4. Are you left or right handed? I am extremely right handed

  5. What was your first deviation?  To no one’s surprise, it was a waterfall Takkakaw by Katjakay

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?  It’s a toss up between photography and cross stitch

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? I would love to be able to draw

  8. What was your first favourite? Again, no surprise it was a waterfall Inspiration Falls 2 by Achmetha

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?  Nature photography, especially waterscapes                                               

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? I don’t even have to think about this, dA introduced me to the amazing funny art of :iconursulav:  The Lurking Sock Puppet by ursulav Pludwump 2 by ursulav  Feral Strawberry of Appomattox by ursulav

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?  Inshinfrog Rossbehy by InShinFrog by Scapes-club she’s become a lifelong friend

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?  Several in many ways they have made me try new art, learn more about the craft I do and in a lot of ways given me more confidence in my art which has spread into my life in general

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?  These days a camera, floss and fabric

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Outdoors, it always comes down to a waterfall for me.                                                                                                           

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?  Mattsma was approaching a milestone pageview and offering art to the person who screencapped it. I was lucky enough to get the lucky number and when she found out I was going to be on a cruise that landed in her hometown, she offered me a tour, which was awesome and more importantly solidified a wonderful friendship.

Thank you, It's tempting to stitch the crest, I know of a couple others doing so at the moment, but I ended up quilting it instead.
