Memory to BlackMago from a DevWatcher.
Quoted (with slight tweaks) from my DA Journal:
This brings back memories. (About the little icon that he did above this quoted entry.)
Back in my earlier DA days where I am pretty active in the scene of a small “circle” of friends with common interests (Pop’n Music to be exact). My sister was cleaning her drawer tonight when I saw her sheet of these special Deco-“Stickers” with liquid and plastic object and beeds inside it’s unique-shaped “containers”. It reminded me of !Blackmago so much… A long-age ago, he had an obsession with kappas and deco-stickers and anything relate to “Japan-Cute”. So I went and bought a sheet of those at a Japanese stationary store. I have to blend it in with a greeting card to him to fool my parents that I am like sending him a birthday card with a gift. (I was in high school back then I think.)
Then you can tell how slow I am when it comes to DeviantART to the point I stopped using it as a social system and care to check over 100+ entries worth of “Deviations” from Clubs and the people I watch. (Probably the sole reason I felt so backed down ‘cause DA (or at least the average and young community) was not as “professional”, but it was one of the earliest places where I show off my “works”.) I forgot about Black Mago and I was curious to check his profile one day… Only to see that his account was deactivated.
I don’t know what really happened… And there are no answers to his disappearance (other than that the “blackmago” tag on Tumblr was still… Living). He’s one of the very few artists who is multi-talented (in both digital and traditional) and very expressive with his child-like dream works. It made me sad because I wish for me (and my sister) to ship these new set of stickers to him (though they were music-themed)…
I will end the moping right now… But I want to know any questions about his wherabouts and… “Where is he” outside of DA…
