Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
My name is Craig, and I like to have a sense of humor, and enjoys making forms of art that enhance my hobby. I'm a general hobbiest, artist, and a creator of my own video production company "Cruiseshipz Studios". The logo I show off in my posts, represents a cruise ship that brings the entertainment that keeps sailing for my ideas that is brought out to the media.

If you enjoy viewing my work and other pieces, feel free to favorite my work and expect to see more that I wish to share. However, there's only one rule I have for art viewing: :icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Hi, guys

It's been a while since I've done an update, so I thought I spread the word on something new. I have been on hiatus due to my last spring semester, and, not to long ago, I graduated with my diploma (but not my degree yet since I'm finishing school with one class next year). I'm currently on a waiting list when finding a job with the help of the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), so I am giving myself a break while making goals to keep busy for the summer in the mean time.

In other news, I'm currently fixing up a new website in order to give myself a fresh new start. There, I will be using it to share my portfolio and videos, and to blog for updates. In case you ask if I will still use DeviantArt and YouTube while using my website, I will still be in those two for keeping in touch with my accounts, and my friends. The website is still in the works, but it can be seen for anybody that wishes to visit this link:

As far as starting fresh is concern, I have one problem with my YouTube account. I was discovering duplicate videos of my 'CS' logo videos being uploaded by spammers and video thieves, which it prevented me from creating the material I use. Every time I upload a video, it gets duplicated with spam users that licensed my logo in creative commons, which I could not be able to do anything to take them down. So my only consideration is to close down my old 'cruiseshipz' account and start fresh with my backup. What do you all think? If there is any help and suggestions I can have, I appreciate the support from you.

That's all I have for now, and hope you all have an enjoyable summer.

Reunited in Peace by cruiseshipz
Reunited in Peace
I'm not sure if I uploaded this drawing or not, but I figured this would be the right time to open it up to the public. Last year, September 15th, my cherished pet cat, Ringo, passed away at age 18 due to old age and some kidney failure. She was my first cat I ever owned at age 7, and it was heart breaking for me seeing her go. I had the same feeling when my other cat, Bart, passed on during Thanksgiving week in 2006. Before Bart's passing, he and Ringo were like a couple in my family hold, and they both played and chased each other as the days go by. 15 days after Ringo's death, I did this drawing during the field trip. In the process, I drew tears during the bus ride toward Chicago when I went to visit the Art Institute for my graphic design course. Nobody knew about my feelings, so I kept it to myself until I shared my feelings toward my true friends and folks.

In this drawing, I imagined them being reunited, and got married in Whiskerville, and this was the imagining I had as I dreamed to see them in heaven. I love my cats so much, and this drawing cannot do justice when being remembered as the best cats I ever owned. Hope anyone can relate to it.
Titanic's Awakening by cruiseshipz
Titanic's Awakening
On September 1st, 1985, ocean explorer Dr. Robert Ballard discovered the wreck of the Titanic, and has accomplished his dream to find her in her resting place below the Atlantic Ocean. This drawing commemorates the 30th anniversary of Ballard's discovery, and it revolutionized Titanic's history as she continues to be remembered for generations. I, for one, dedicate the Titanic with this drawing by watching National Geographic's 'Secrets of the Titanic' documentary. Back in 2001, I watched it when I got the DVD copy for Christmas, and I still enjoy it to this day as part of my interest in the ill-fated liner that made maritime history my true taste.
Title-Card Doodles by cruiseshipz
Title-Card Doodles
Had this idea drawn out based on a cartoon segment from a Brazilian film (can't tell you what I got it from), so I drew these in nine squares as "title card doodles" due to boredom.
Our Glowing Point Of Views by cruiseshipz
Our Glowing Point Of Views
This was inspired by an anime, "Hyouka", when I drew this, last year, as an expression to my mind and feelings. It shows the way I live in the world when depression gets dark, and it hits me as hard when I'm alone. While a friend of mine, on the left side, courageously glows faith to show feelings among her peers.
