Back in 1999 my senior year in highschool when I was 17 I joined an amazing group called "The Aladdin Mailing List" and "Aladdin RPG" was also joined! I met amazing people, one of them I actually fell in love with his name Marco Merkelijn and though through the years we lost connection with each other. I still look back on those days fondly and I wish that I could find people like Jessica Anderson and Marco and Tiger who were all close with me at that time.

Aladdin the movie is where I started drawing Yesenia and that was when she was born. I loved writing her, it was so fun! I loved writing Princess Jasmine it was a blast! She was even pregnant at one point. Anyways the point I'm making here is this. I wrote alot of stories back then from 1999 to about 2000 something. I can't remember when they stopped. But they were all around Yesenia and her best friend Merkal Kahil and her sister Crystal. We basically filled in the 'Streets of Agrabah" so to speak. And people like Richard who I thank God every day I am in contact with now, were filling in the surrounding magical areas of Agrabah and the Rainforest where Thundra lived. 

Non-Aladdin fans may not be familiar with this stuff that I am talking about. We had the moveis: Aladdin, Aladdin in the Return of Jafar, and Aladdin and the King of Thieves; and we also had a mega cool tv series! In which people like Mozenrath and Malcho and so many other great characters were made. I fell in love with the whole Aladdin based world for quite a while. 

Recently I found my fanfics and I reread them though I dreaded it think it would be badly written. While the Grammar isn't great and some things are a bit rushed. There are magical passionate moments that I loved and adored. I am putting them up on deviantart now so that I can share this part of my past. A part of my past that inspired me and fueld me through the years to writing and drawing. So yes it was a VERY important part of my life back then. I miss the people so much.

Last night after watching the movie again Aladdin...oh it was magical and wonderful all over again. Only in HD! LOL I was like O_O! Anyways ...I just want to go back to those easier days those days when friends laughed and joked about Aladdin, and made comments about the characters. We made up funny lists of sayings or how you know you're like that character. It was fun!

I just wish we could reopen that window of time, that span of time and connect with those people again. I wish I could have made sure I never lost connection but I did. It stinks....

I am rewriting a few of the old stories. You will also see new fanfics invovling Yesenia. I don't know if they will have Merkal since I don't have Marco's permission....

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I draw and do digital and traditional pictures, and I am currently working on 2 books. I was for a while against selling my own work because I was concerned that it would cost me my license for creativity. But honestly now I believe that its not going to hurt me to do this. I also need all the extra money I can get to support my terminally ill mother.

I love writing, and drawing, and I even enjoy singing. I have fun in life and I try to help others out as much as I can. I don't need to be 'famous' to be successful or happy. This does not mean I don't have dreams or want to keep drawing and writing and even getting published. But you will find I am not focused on that.

To top it off I am also a Christian! I will be putting up more Bible art so if you love that then look at the gallery!

See you sooN!

Are you enjoying your summer?
