Michael Johnson
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
What's there to say? I'm in my late thirties, baldish, with a sometimes-bushy red beard. That's got some gray in it. I've got four kids here at home and another from a previous relationship. I've got a wonderful wife. I'm a programmer by day and a father and programmer by night. My art is generally via programming using POV-Ray. I like dragons and good art. And role playing games. Rifts especially.

And LEGOs. Lots and lots of LEGOs. Thankfully, so do my wife and kids. And the company I work for. Heh...we've got 20,000 2x4 LEGO bricks in the garage: 10,000 each of white and black. Because my wife and I designed a version of Noah's Ark for church a few years back at mini-fig size.

And I don't sleep enough.

Current Residence: Somewhere this side of Oz
Favourite genre of music: Do I have to pick?
Operating System: Debian GNU/Linux
MP3 player of choice: mpd/mpc
Shell of choice: Bash
Wallpaper of choice: Random selection from a bunch

Journal History

I've been +faving  a bunch of stock photos and such lately. That's because I've recently been put in charge of doing the multimedia presentations for the church my wife is serving at. I am building up a library for myself so I can quickly put together the presentations. So, when I download such an image I +fav it. That doesn't mean I'll use it or have used it, just that I'll consider using it in the future. That is, I think it's good enough to share with the congregation.

If you're a stock artist and I +fav a deviation of yours, if I do use it it will be as a component (usually the background) of a slide for a presentation given during worship service. I am considering putting up a credits slide at the end of worship service. If I have used your art and you would like me to do so, please let me know.

If you've gotten here because I commented on a deviation or noted you, thank you for providing your stock! I am using it as noted above. Given the nature of the use, I can't really provide you with a link, but if you'd like, I can send you the relevant slide (or slides) of the presentation that use your stock. If you have any further requests for crediting your work, please let me know.
