Feel free to take a look!


I only add things to my favorites that I REALLY like. So everything here is especially awesome. Go look at it.
So, after being told by Geek Squad that I'd need to to stage two or three recovery ($600-1500 and up) to retrieve anything from my hard drive, I started digging around for people I know who might be able to do it for less money. I had some family members ask around too. Someone who works for my aunt stepped up and said he would take a look at it for me, so I gave it to him a week ago and he's worked on it nonstop since then. He put almost 30 hours into it and was able to recover everything. As a professional contractor he usually charges $89 an hour to work on computers, but after hearing about my situation, he only charged me $190, and that includes the cost of the 2 TB external hard drive he bought to copy the data to.

Going through all the data now, it looks like only about 5% of it is damaged, but all of the important stuff is intact and still usable. I'm so, so relieved that it got worked out, and I'm extremely thankful for the guy to put so much work into it for such a small cost. I gave him one of my business cards and told him that if he ever needs anything, I'd be glad to make it up to him.

Now my laptop is en route to the manufacturer to have the bad hard drive replaced. It's still going to be quite a task to reinstall everything that was on it before, but at least I haven't lost all of my art and other projects.

In other news, I'm going on vacation to Colorado Springs with my family at the end of the month. I don't know where exactly we plan to visit, but it should be fun! And my laptop will be ready for me to pick up as soon as I'm back, so I look forward to that.

Only five weeks left of summer. Darn you and your quickness!

Also, my birthday's in 19 days. notthatanyonecares~

That's all for now. Hawk out.

Hello, everybody! You can call me Mack, Hawk, or my real name, Jordan. Doesn't matter to me which you use.

I am a Christian. My most prominent interests are art, video games, classical music, and history.

I do a combination of digital and traditional art. Pencils and Photoshop are my main media.

In case you haven't figured it out yet, lizards are just about my favorite thing in the world. I love 'em! Knights are a close second.

Thanks for stopping by my page!

Nope, I take it back! It's been awhile, didn't see all the tabs. This is the one I was talking about.…

Hello! I doubt you remember me because I was relatively under the radar, but about 5 years ago or so I went by the name Shadowcakes, and pretty much just had the one drawing of a squirrel. Haven't been to this site since then, but here I am! Of all the people who I interacted with back then, you stand out the most. You've improved a ton! Glad to see you're still going strong. One question, did you take down any of your old art? None of your earliest stuff looks familiar. I remember talking to you about one specific colored piece with one of the reptilian characters using a sniper rifle. Said you drew it in class, I believe. Ah well, either way, I'm excited to see what you come up with in the future!
