Yes, yes I did. 

But WHY?

Okay lemme 'splain:

First off, I really dislike my name. I would change it IRL if it weren't a hassle and I had more courage. Right now, it is what it is and I'll keep signing things with it but if I can have another name online I will.

Also, I had originally put my FULL REAL LIFE NAME up there because I'd intended to go all ultra-professional with the arts, and wanted to be easily tracked down. That's no longer the case so I'm changing.

Secondly, I recently got a gig as the community manager at Pencil Kings. I wanted to be comfortable and anonymous so I used the name Satchel Winn as my handle there. But at the same time I'd like to have some other vestige of my work online connected to that, so I thought ok, I'll change my DA username and hook that up.

I hesitated a long time because I didn't want to pay the $30 or whatever for a premium membership just to change my name. But lo and behold you can now pay $5 a month so I figured I'd do the name change then cancel the Premium in a month. Sorry, DA!

Also, because my professional life has taken an unexpected turn, I'd like to have my art in a nice tidy more private space than it's been. So I can scuttle away and draw elves if I want to and it doesn't get mixed too much into my RL business. That's probably how it is with most people who aren't pro artists, isn't it?

I feel the need to go on about it because I'm a ridiculously honest person so using a pseudonym is difficult for me. But whatev, it's not like there's anything to hide, not even elves. Just wanted to separate some things a little, and feel a little more myself in areas of life where I can control that. 

Sometimes I'd rather have no name at all.
