How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Almost 7 years with an account, but I've been on it for 20 years. Maybe 25.
What does your username mean?
It means that I am a secret agent, and you may have just blown my cover. Come with me if you want to live.
Describe yourself in three words.
Are you left or right handed?
Right, but I can catch softballs with my foot and just kick them around like a soccer player.
What was your first deviation?
I call it "hunter." It's a selfie.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I would be able to paint with a paintbrush in my mouth like those elephants.
What was your first favourite?
I call it "a city without hunter in it at the moment."
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Birds and the tops of buildings and nature. Wait, maybe I just want to BE A BIRD!
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
An elephant. I think her name is Trunky.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
ScampTheCat and trowlandson's dog benson
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Heidi once told me to follow my dreams.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
A baseball bat and a donut.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Las Vegas, poolside, with a cool refreshment.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
One time, after a meeting, everyone in attendance threw me into the air, and on the way down, I high-fived each of them. It was a great meeting.
...It might have been a dream meeting.

As part of a general review of the Prints Program we noticed that the Prints Agreement needed clarity.
- We changed the way in which we describe pricing because we have changed the way in which pricing is displayed during the submission process.
- We also wanted to clearly explain the impact of promotional offers on the Artist Profit.
- More than two years ago we blended the Premium Print Program with the Premium Membership (they used to be different). We have now updated the language in order to better distinguish the differences between Premium and Standard Print Program features in the Prints Agreement.
- Finally, we fixed some word choices and grammar to make the Agreement a better read.
To compare the new Prints Agreement with the former Prints Agreement click here. (We've provided you with a helpful document that shows all of the language that has been removed, replaced, changed, and added.)
