|I'm a sucker for baby animals, chibi, general cute anime-ish things, and everything in between. And bad jokes. I like those, too. I can't help it. It's a problem, I know, but... but...!|

AC Month Spotlight On: Architectural Design!What is this?AC Month Spotlight On: Architectural Design! by lazybutt
This is the first installment of articles, written for Artisan Crafts Month, which introduce the Artisan Crafts sub-galleries by talking about what they are, how to do work within them, and featuring artwork from the galleries. In this edition I will be talking about the Architectural Design Gallery!

What is a DD?
The Daily Deviation is a daily staff feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.
A small assortment of submissions is chosen each day by a select group of staff members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.
Who selects them?
The selecting administrator may be a Gallery Director or other staff member who has been granted the necessary access to the special selection tools.
You can find who selects the DD's in the FAQ below, as well as how to contact the appropriate Gallery Director, is you feel like a certain genre is being overlooked.
How are they selected?

AC Month Interview with: wolfsax!What is this?AC Month Interview with: wolfsax! by lazybutt
Throughout the month of January, Artisan Crafts Month, I will be posting interviews with artisans who have made a difference on dA either through their own artisan crafts, or the effort they put into the community (and it's usually a combination of the two!)
This is the interview with wolfsax, Leathercrafter, and dream catcher expert.
First, a little about wolfsax.
Wolf, as she calls herself, has been doing all sorts of artisan crafts since she was a little kid in the Girl Scouts - her mother was the Crafts Director of the scouts camp she used to go to, and would often "test" inventive crafts out on her daughter to see how difficult they were ... too bad she had a natural knack for crafts!

I'm a sewing maniac, who is willing to sew just about anything (cosplay or otherwise) you could throw at me!|
I'm currently residing in Japan with my wonderful husband
I'm not working on cosplay commissions at the moment, nor much sewing apart from small personal projects (quilts and jewelry, more than anything) due to only having one *le gasp* sewing machine with me, and no dress forms or even room to work!
So, for the time being, I am simply existing, getting over some crippling mental health issues, and snapping pictures every chance I get. If you'd like, however, give me a +watch and you'll know when I'm back home in the US, studio set up and ready to go again! Because you can't keep me away from it for too long...
I graduated with a BFA in Costume Production in the Spring of 2008,
I love sewing, and I am willing to try to help anyone out with their questions (although I'm insanely slow to respond to emails and notes, sorry!)
