Artist of the Moment
Hello, my name is Alexis, however most people call me Lex. I am addicted to tea, love cats (however I'm allergic!), and am working to become certified in both ASL and various programs so i don't have to have one set job field (and can talk to my aunt and cousins). I have been on imvu for about 5 years, and have meet some amazing people in that time who have helped me develop and grow as a digital artist. I have done digital painting for about two years, i worked on 'edits' before then and really sucked at it, i don't like having a base to work off of for painting. I started pixeling in April of 2013, And came up with the stupid idea to make myself work towards doing realism in both my paintings and my pixels, so for the past year or so I have been working to that. Many of my paintings are more conceptual and based around ideas and such, and for that reason i don't really do much for IMVU, or much that gets posted at all. I do character designs and adoptables on FA, but lately my focus on IMVU has been text art and graphics, since i don't have the patience to do much else custom, however i am willing to consider private orders. Most of what i do comes from random inspiration, and i didn't realize i was good at it till i had the random idea to try it out to see what happens, however my usual creative triggers are music, friends, and random thoughts that somehow trail off into la-la-land. If anything, i kinda started by jumping in head first, didn't give myself that learning curve, i threw myself into it because i came from a hard place and art was and is my therapy for dealing with issues and past trauma, I use it to express myself and show how i feel to the word without opening my mouth, and to anyone seeing art as a coping mechanism, i can just say throw yourself into it, its the only way to see if its your calling, is let it drag you into the mushy hole that is creativity. HOWEVER i don't know how to end this so.... yay, you read my disorganized rant. great job... //pats//

AP Forum Closure
February 4, 2015
From the results of our survery we have gathered that most people agreed with our decision to close down the AP forum as it wasn't active enough to generate business for artists or for customers to find artists.
So on February 10, 2015 the forum will be closed / deleted.
For more information on this change please read this thread.
