Furball [the cat that battled depression]There was one thing I was certain of when we met that day;Furball [the cat that battled depression] by DamaiMikaz
You were the most miserable looking cat I had ever seen in my life.
A tiny white furball. Skinny. Unproportional.
Your legs were too short for your body, as was your tail. It made you wiggle when you walked. There was that thing about your face that just wasn't right. Weird, squinted eyes. You were always snotty, like having caught a cold that never ceased. And when you purred, it was strangely noisy. As if something had broken inside long ago. We always had that funny joke about you, in which we pictured you as a human being. The school nerd that got bullied on in class. The one with huge glasses, an unfitting haircut, and that always carried an inhaler with him because he was basically allergic to anything and everything. Because that was the kind of cat you were.
Still it was love at first sight when we met at the animal shelter, and you set yourself at our laps and started purring for no reason.

Also known on the internet as DamaiMikaz or Mikaz -- the nickname I've been using since my early days on the internet, somewhere around 2002. Originally I used the nickname Mikaz, which was derived from an RP character I used to roam the Dutch forums with. As the internet expanded, however, and more and more nicknames were taken by default, I added Damai as a prefix as a reference to my real name; Damaris.
I'm artist in the broadest sense of the word. Despite what my DeviantArt gallery might make you think, I'm involved in many disciplines of art. Like illustration, writing, graphic- and webdesign. While I work as a professional webdesigner and webdeveloper in real life, I don't show much of my web related work here, mostly for the reason that I can't publish everything I make for clients directly. Aside from that, DeviantArt is a thing I do for fun, so I prefer to keep it about my personal projects.
In contrary to what many people seem to think: I'm not a professional Illustrator -- which basically comes down to the fact that I don't do illustration for money. I never even took commissions, and I'm not planning to do so either. Illustration is, like writing, something I do for fun alone.
In real life I'm currently working as a webdeveloper. Which means I'm a huge nerd (A real one. One who knows how to program) that enjoys messing around with computers and actually enjoys the process of programming web applications. I have a huge interest in everything tech- and especially web-related, including internet culture, trends and phenomenons and social media. Basically anything web-related catches my interest.
If you have anything to say to me: please comment or note me. It might take a while, since the number of messages I get a day has gotten to the point that it's almost an extra job to keep up with. It takes me a lot of time to get through, but don't worry. I will get to it eventually. And even if I don't reply, know that I've read your message and that I appreciate your kind words.
Also, please refrain from begging for requests and/or point donations. I lack time, so I don't do those.
Have a nice day!
