I'm not sure of how many friends I had here are still on this website. Several have left, and many have changed usernames so excuse me if I don't recognize half of you LOL.

The last journal I wrote was at the begining of this year and it was just commission info. But I'm writing this in case you're curious about what has happened these last few years.

First off I spent over a year without internet at home, a period which is thankfuly over.

The previous two years had been very turbulent and this year I'm just recovering from all that. I'm okay now, don't worry. But I'm more broke than I've ever been in my life. As many of you know, finding a job in Spain is a nearly impossible task for a lot of the population (specially if you're like me: not a single career degree and little to no job experience, hahah). I'm just getting by with a little help from family and selling my possessions and earning very little with art. I hope my business grows...

By the way I no longer use the pseudonym Lord-Aragoon, it's just Giovanni Giordano now. Everyone kept thinking my pseudonym was related to Aragorn from Lord of the Rings and it was bumming me out, pfff...

I've also had the usual "I'm not good enough" crisis every now and then, but little by little, I've been learning to admire my own work more and not compare myself with others. If you have the same issue, please try to love your own art! It's the only way to go forward happily!

And now for the possitive changes: I'm not friendless anymore. I've known excellent people in the past year and it feels so good to hang out with them. My younger brother has also moved here with me and I couldn't be more grateful about having a close family member in my everyday life. I've also met some of my best online friends in person in the past years. I'm doing my best to ease my mental illnesses, which is difficult as all hell but I do feel an improvement.

Also I'm nearly a year on hormonal replacement treatment. Feels good, feels pretty darn good!

I still need to fix my financial crisis so if you haven't checked, here's my commission info again!

Bless you all!:heart:
Hello watchers and visitors, I hope you're alright. I am in a critical situation. I am a mentally ill transgender man. My family doesn’t have money to help me any longer, and I have so much trouble finding a job to help myself, and it could take a long while before I find any. I need to sustain myself starting now. It is urgent. It’s become very harsh and I am desperate. Here's the prices:

Commission Info Example 1 by Lord-Giovanni
Commission Info Example 2 by Lord-Giovanni
Commissions Info Example 3 by Lord-Giovanni

I am willing to draw any fandom, your OCs, etc. I use both digital and traditional techniques.  The currencies I accept are US Dollars, Euros, Canadian Dollars and British Pounds, and payment is exclusive by paypal to the address shown above. 

And if you’re feeling generous enough, you can just donate to my paypal address shown above. Any amount would be appreciated. I needs lots of therapy and overall medical care and I have no other help available. Help me stay safe and healthy. Help me care for myself.

Peace!

:rose:Hello Everybody! I hope all of you started the year nicely. I would like you to take your time and read the following entry:

Thing is, I am in need of earning money to help me cover various important expenses (for example: a few medical things, college, and other basics we all deal with). I've decided to open commissions to start getting a little income. Note that I am starting with very friendly prices considering that a lot of you also need to save money, but as I get more customers I'll be increasing prices to hopefuly help myself more. Here is the info you need!

Commissions Info Example 3 by Lord-Giovanni

So yeah. If you feel like commissioning somebody, keep this in mind and I'll do my best to give you a satisfying result as you help me in return :D Also please pay attention to the following conditions:

:rose:Payment is available via paypal only, to the e-mail address: amethyst_cypress@hotmail.com.
:rose:Send me an e-mail or a message (on tumblr, deviantart, or other social media I'm on) telling me what you want and we’ll discuss it by private messages.
:rose:I am willing to draw any fandom, your original characters, your favourite characters, your pet, you name it! Unless it is something I consider highly appropriate.
:rose:If you want me to draw one of your characters, please be kind enough to provide plenty of reference!
:rose:I’ll have the right to post the finished work to any of my art sites. If you don’t want me to post it, please tell me beforehand.
:rose:I will send the full resolution picture to your e-mail if you wish so.
:rose:The currencies I accept are US Dollars, Euros, Canadian Dollars and British Pounds. However, US Dollars and Euros are my preffered currencies.
:rose:I use both digital and traditional techniques and they cost the same. You can tell me if you want me to work with a specific one.
:rose:No anonymous commissioning! I want to know that I am serving a person who uses these social medias seriously and not just a troll or a multi-account user. :)

Other things to consider:

:rose:I won't draw pornographic themes. Artistic nudity is okay though, and if you want me to draw furry I'd rather keep it safe for work.
:rose:Mechas/robotics and other highly technologic stuff are not my speciality, but with enough reference I might give it a try.
:rose:I take a lot of time on my drawings, but I'll do an effort not to be slow.
:rose:Depending on how I feel about the drawing itself, I might or might not submit it to certain pages, but rest assured that I will draw it if it follows the conditions stated above and I will send it to your e-mail.

Thank you for taking your time to read this. You will help me a lot if you decide to commission me. Take care! :heart:

So first off we have Mozart's birthday today!

:heart::rose::iconmozartplz::rose::heart:

And this sunday? There's my birthday, which doesn't excite me very much honestly.

And on tuesday it will be Schubert's birthday.

Isn't it awesome to have your birthday inbetween two geniuses' birthdays?

I'd love to throw a party with those two for five days straight, but sadly they aren't around so my family will have to do.

Gwah I don't want to get older.

Happy new year, no?

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 5, 2012, 2:47 AM


Been back from Florida since before the new year's eve but I didn't feel like writting at that time. I hope you all had nice holidays. I hope that 2012 will be much better than the previous year.

So, what was bad about 2011? It ended well in some context, but a big part of the year was awful. The first half specially, really bad things happened to beloved friends of mine, anxiety plagued all over me, and at some point I had to speak up for myself and for my decisions which lead to a ton of trouble. Later then, happiness kept withering when I kept feeling disappointed at my own person. Several things happened to my conscience. Some good, some bad, all of them leading to a massive tear shed. There was also tons of withdrawal which kept me from producing art and improving like I should have.
When one comes out from a bad year, it feels like wasted time.

Photobucket
Sorry, 2011. I didn't like you.

The good news? I'm living my own appartment, in Alcalá de Henares. In one of the cities I love the most. And with that, 2012 has started well. Let us wish everything improves for everybody this year. This year I plan to:

1. Work on my art like my fucking life depended on it.
2. Get a job.
3. Take school more seriously.
4. Never be late at paying anything.
5. Go to a country I've never been to before.
6. Stop depending on others' oppinions.
7. Grow some confidence.
8. Get my priorities straight.
9. Make fun of everybody who thinks the end of the world is coming. :trollface:

Good luck, gentlemen.

Hey, thought it was time to write.

Been busy with life in different aspects and there have been many issues in my mind which is why I kind of shielded myself from some communities. But there have been possitive changes, I'm a lot better from the anxiety and as you can tell from my latest submissions I might start having more time to do finished works again. One of the possitive changes is that I'm moving out to my own appartment.

My own appartment :iconfuckyeaplz:

And tomorrow I'm going to Florida again for two weeks because my sister is graduating. And there we shall spend the Christmas. At first I was annoyed about getting out of the continent again, but come on, not everyone has the opportunity to go on a trip for the holidays. I'm hoping to go to the Florida keys to get a good dose of adventure.
:iconflapjackheadplz:
:iconflapjackbodyplz:
I wish you all great holidays, gentlemen.

Hello. I've been back in Spain since sunday. But do not expect me to be around here for a while.

I'm not doing well. Anxiety issues have been striking again, and I'm feeling somewhat discouraged about my art. I think I only want to work on the comic at the moment. See you later.

Back to home I go

My vacation is over. Today I am going back to Spain, and it was really about time, because I simply didn't like being away from my home and my own life for too long. It made me procrastinate on my art a lot which frustrates me. Yes, I had a lot of fun and memorable experiences. Trips with my family are always good, but also, I was overwhelmed by anxiety and depression during the whole vacation.

Once I'm back I seriously need to do some drastic changes in my life. I'll have to occupy myself doing several things, such as moving out, getting personal help, finding a job and other things for my own good. So I am afraid that I'll be inactive around this site for a while longer.

So, until then. I shall keep you informed at times. Let's hope I at least manage to sleep in the bastard plane! =P

I want to apologize for lying and saying that I'm sort of around, because I haven't been around here at all, just updating my comic every now and then.

I haven't had internet at home for a while now so there's also that. Besides working on the comic, I barely ever finish artwork these days. It really hasn't been easy nor comfortable to keep posting art around the net.

Besides that, I must warn you that this hiatus is likely to last some more (my comic, as well, will have to wait some for further updates). I am going to be away from Spain durring the whole summer, which means spending more time with family and being a bit farther from my art tools.

However, I do not want to disappear completely durring the summer, so I invite you to follow my tumblr blog: goono.tumblr.com/
In this blog I'll post doodles and drawings I'll be making durring my travels (because I can't go anywhere without a sketchbook ;)). So, for those who like checking on my art every now and then, you're very welcome to see some of my upcoming drawings here.

I shall be around again after all this. I wish you all a good summer! :star:

Also, I am desperately in love with somebody lately:

Hello, I am around, sorta. I've had no internet at home lately and life has been a topsy-turvy, in a not fun way (long story short, I've abandoned the graphic design career because I didn't like it and that has lead to a bit of conflict, I was already rather depressed before hand and I've been, in general, very under the weather. Things haven't been going well for some of my friends either). Despite that I'm still working on my art, and instead of getting deeper into the angsty subject, I must announce something:

My webcomic, The Hypnotist from Prague, has been launched! Actually I launched it weeks ago, and it already has some pages, so go ahead and start reading. I'll try to update at least once a week. I hope you enjoy my story, as it is very valuable to me. I'll do my best for this project. Critiques and thoughts are also very welcome. Sink into the magical adventure! and such :|

...Yeah that explains the new journal skin =P

It was time to write again

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 5, 2011, 10:14 AM

Hello there. A journal talking about the new year when it's already march sounded ridiculous.

I've been away again. I have no internet at home. And I've also been undecisive about what to draw and what to work on first. What matters is that I haven't stopped drawing (that's rather impossible for me).

I haven't been that grand as of late. My anxiety has been killing me, and I am, in general, fed up with life. I'm really lacking the mental energy to work well at college, actually, I'm doing real bad at college. I'd love to take a time to recover and restart the course later to do everything better from the beggining, but no one wants me to. Bah.

I've come to the point that both college and home are getting stressful. I don't have family conflicts at home, but my mother and stepfather are having some trouble keeping up together and I don't know what decisions will be taken. I suppose there will be changes and that already distresses me. Not to mention I'm in real need of more personal space. I also feel like life gets really dull and tiring when I'm so prone to panic and anxiety all the time. I have little to no friends in real life and it feels INSANE not having anybody to have a meaningful relationship with. It would be easier if I had internet at home, at least I'd have somebody to talk out things with.

I'm sick of these physical and emotional routines. Everything seems pretty gray to me.

There ya go. A rant is the best way to substitute an old journal, eh =P

Mmmmmmmyeah Happy New Year to you all =P

Ah I'll be honest, I don't know if last year was all that good. I have trouble judging it because a lot of awesome things happened BUT the whole depression crap killed it, kinda.

A lot of good things happened. I had my own life, enjoyed the freedom of getting drunk in Madrid and going back home after midnight, had a fair bit of romance, entered college, got to have my parents around again, entered college, made a friend... But seriously, emotionally it was a total wreck. But I guess I should stop wasting my emotional energy trying to call this year good or bad and just move on. I have better hopes for this year.

I know that the sole fact that it's a different year number does not change anything at all, but still works as motivation and that's what matters, verdad? =P

I've also been screwing up at college lately, which is BAD. Because you know how I struggled so hard to get into studying a career, but before winter break I turned very unresponsible. My anxiety got me to the point of skipping important evaluations and just neglecting it all for the sake of trying to calm down. But it shouldn't be like this, I've firmly decided to organize myself and take my grades more seriously. I bought myself an agenda to keep my things in order because I'm horribly forgetful and that helped getting mediocre grades.

But seriously, for some reason I feel very discouraged about college and just thinking that winter break will be over soon stresses me already... I don't know if I just feel very alone there. Gwah.

I'll also try and do something big with my art. Who knows, with a bit of encouragement I might get some works into an exhibition? I can try publishing something too.

Another thing I'll focus on is finding out what causes all the anxiety and depression. I'll try getting any necessary medical studies. That shall be a priority from now on so I can find a proper solution to all this.

GET SHIT DONE I WILL! :salute:

Also I have a little obsession at the moment:

So yeah :heart:

Ey guys, it's been a while since I last submitted art, right?

It's been a lot of things. I've been having a lot of anxiety and depression which has made me become a bit withdrawn. I'm controlling it with medicine but I'm gonna need more therapy than usual I guess, so I can know why the heck I get like this. That, and a bit of lack of ideas has made me neglect this site for a while.

I've also been having a lot of family members at home for the holidays and I've been spending time with them so there's that =P

All this time has been pretty much just dealing with anxiety and self esteem issues, college, trying to get my mind straight, losing a net friend I had thought valuable for a long time... A lot of things that have been stressing me and killing me a bit inside. I'm trying harder to just live my life with less paranoid worries or angst. You get the point, I have a lot of personal crap to deal with.

But I'm starting to feel more encouraged about my art and I always think that it always makes life funner and better, so you might expect to see new art from me once the new year starts.

Sí, that's pretty much it, if you were wondering where I had gone to =P

Also, special thanks to my amazing friend :iconseverita: who gave me a 1 year subscription, thank you very much! :heart::hug::heart: Go fuck yourselves, ads.

Special thanks to the ones who have been supporting me as well :heart:

Be one of the first 18 people commenting on this journal and I'll feature you on the list.

For each of the 18 first people answering this journal I will put his/her avatar and the three deviations I like most from his/her gallery on the list.

If you answer, you'll have to do the same in your journal, putting me on the first place, completing the list with 17 other people. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone bla bla bla bla YOU KNOW THE RULES AND SO DO I.

Sorry folks, I'll have to close art trades. I'm still gonna finish the ones with people that already drew their half though.

It's a lot of things, first off, I want to take a break from the internet (nowadays I'm just posting updates on Facebook). I've been feeling pretty confused and depressed with many things and I realized I simply have to make up my mind about some stuff, and I decided to stay away from chatting for a while. There's a huge mess in my mind and I need some time for myself. I hope you guys understand.

I'm also starting art college in just a few days and that'll keep me busier. Hopefully it will make me happier as well.

So yeah... I apologize for even opening art trades in the first place. I guess I didn't think about it enough. It's just not a good idea right now. Thanks to all of you by being interested, anyway.

I'll make my path through all this fucked up labyrinth I have in my mind. Give me time.

To distract myself from this tragedy I've opened art trades. I want to draw new things, and I've been short in inspiration. I'll take this situation as an opportunity to improve my traditional art skillz :dummy:

Yup. Let's trade drawings. I'm up to draw almost anything, but I'd like to avoid certain fanart (we shall discuss it via comments).

Tomorrow I'll be crossing the Atlantic to arrive at Miami, and I'll be there for around three weeks. Don't expect me to submit anything or be online much, because going to Miami just to spend time in front of my computer, which I always do, doesn't make much sense right? Not to mention I gotta spend time with my sister :flirty:

Anywhichway, I wanna thank you all for the support in my last two emo angsty journals. Even if I don't respond to all your comments, I assure you I read them all and they really help me. You guys are awesome and I'M TOTALLY GONNA TAKE REQUESTS FROM MY AWESOME FRIENDS ONCE I'M BACK FROM MY TRIP cause you guys deserve it and I need to draw some new shit.

I'm pretty excited and we plan to have a lot of fun. What is better than a trip to Miami to chill? :icongoonieplz:
