Hey my people <3

Hope you are all doing good! It is super warm here, I am just laying in my bed (its 9pm in Berlin) and thinking about life. I was a little bored and thought it would be cool to get to know you all a little more. So I was thinking, it might be a nice idea to post a question every other day, that I would want you to answer. It can be weird questions sometimes.. :D

Today's question is: What has been the most severe sickness, that you went through? Both physical or psychological counts. How did you overcome it? Or are you still going through it? What would you tell someone with the same problem?

As for me: The most severy sickness I have gone through was a pulmonary embolism. At first the doctors thought I had lung cancer (which was super shocking for me), even though I have never smoked a single cigarette... Fortunately I only had to stay in hospital for 1 week, but it was a tough time. One of the symptoms was a very strong fever.. and I hate fever! ^^

Soo what about you? :D

Hey my awesome people! :hug:

Oh wow... the last couple days have been even more crazy than before. I am facing quite a lot of struggles at the moment, especially some family-issues. But I am having trust in God, that everything will be alright. :) Opposition and hardships are necessary for us to grow, aren´t they? :D

Well, in other news, the boyfriend (and soon husband) of my sister has created a deviantart account today. He has incredible talent! He uploaded a picture to his gallery, which is the very first painting he finished with Photoshop and his new graphics tablet and I think for his first picture its incredibly good! I see a rising star in him, haha :D So I would like to encourage you to give him a warm welcome, some random hugs, a comment/fav/watch or whatever you feel he deserves. I know he will be super happy, as he is trying to establish himself with his art soon, so he will be more than grateful, if we support him! :la:

Here is his account: :iconlucagrimaldi:

and here his first picture: Facing Gethsemane by LucaGrimaldi

Love you all! :heart:

Hey my dear watchers :hug:

Sorry for not posting as many new pictures and updates as I would love to lately. Its been crazy times for me, so many things are happening, both good and bad. One of them being that Madonna issue, of her posting my art without having permission or providing credit. Hope my statement will reach her: www.facebook.com/JojoesArt/pho…

I have also been busy with many projects. The last two weeks I spent in Finland, with some good friends I have met on my mission in Switzerland. We had a lot of fun and I got to love Finland. Such a beautiful country! Is anyone of you from there? :)

What is currently happening in your life? What are sou thinking about? Use the comment section for some random thoughts... Haha :D

Loge you all and will keep you updated. Will try to post more art soon! :la: 

What would you like to see me draw? :D

Heyyy!! My dear friends! :D :la: :hug:

I just returned from my 2 years long mission in Switzerland. I served as a missionary for two years, teaching people about Jesus Christ and sharing my beliefs. It has been most precious to me to serve my Saviour and I have gained so many unbelievably important experiences. It has literally changed my life!! :D

Now I am back, excited to continue my career as an artist. I can't wait to find some time and do some art. Right now everything is super busy, but you will hear from me very soon!!!!! :D

If you are interested in commissioning me, you can write me a note! :)

WOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Love you all!! :heart:

P.S.: I am planning to change my username from "sanguisGelidus" to "JoJoesArt". It is for simplicity's sake and also because that is what my facebookpage is called. Just to let you know.. :)

Hey my beloved friends!! :D

So, my mission is coming to an end, as it seems. Oh maaan, how I will miss life as a missionary! 21 months have passed like as in a second, but I know many exciting things are also awaiting me after these two special years... :) I am excited to be able to meet my family and friends, to come back to Berlin, to see if and how life has changed at home. And I am super excited to be able to begin my life as a freelance artist! To be able to share my ideas, visions and my emotions with all of you again! I have missed you all alot, but now it is less than 3 months until I will return... :la:

My mission has literally changed the way I think, they way I live, the way I am. It has made me a better person, a more complete person, a happier person. I loved and still love being able to spend my time serving others, instead of always serving my own ego. Isn't that what life is all about? To make others happy and thus become happy ourselves? :) I wanna challenge you all and give you a promise: Make someone else's life a little bit better today and you will see how joy will enter your life. Give somebody a smile, a hug, some nice words or a little gift. It really works miracles! :D

I love you all alot and am so eager to have more contact with you again soon! 2 years have passed! What has happened in your lives? How have things changed for you? Let me know everything!! Haha :D

Oh and btw: I will try to be super active also on my youtube channel and facebook site after my mission. So if you want, you can already start following me on there as well.. :D Here are the links: youtube and facebook

Have a nice time everyone and see you in a bit!! :D :la:

Hey my beloved friends!! :heart:

Wow, long time no see! It is crazy, how these past 1 ½ years passed by so quickly! I am still serving on my mission in Switzerland and I have experienced so many great things here. I can truely say I have seen the hands of God in everything these past months. I am so eager to tell you about all these things after I have returned home. 6 more months to go, then I will return and I will be able to begin my career as a freelance artist. So exciting!! :la:

Well, we have made some really exciting projects here in Switzerland, that have to do with art and music. Now we are making a facebook event for a so called „Musical fireside“, which is combining the power of music and art to teach Christian principles.

We have created a facebookpage and I will be able to upload some updates every now and then on there. To boost the site a little bit we decided to do an event, in which you can win 10 posters of my newest picture „Searching for God“ and even a personalized commission, if we reach 1000 likes on that facebook page. If you want to follow me there and participate in that event, just like and share the following post on your facebook: www.facebook.com/Musikalischer… (it is all in German, so you can use the translator I guess

)

I love you all alot! Keep being awesome and see you very soon!

 

Your sanguisgeslidus :hug:

 

Hey here is Pixie Cold, ive got a new message from my brother!!!

"Hey my awesome watchers!!

Oh man, long time no see!! I miss you all so very much! These last few months have been crazy busy for me, so much to do here in Switzerland! I enjoy being a missionary so much, it is really the most fulfilling experience I have ever had! Right now we are preparing a huge musical and artistical event in Winterthur. So I am actually getting to use my talents even in this great work! It really brings so much joy!!
I hope you all are doing well! Thank you so much to everyone for the birthday wishes! My daddy just wrote me about them and it moved me so much, that even after that time I haven't been on here, you are still thinking of me. I really love you all! Stay creative and I will see you soon! My mission ends in about 8 1/2 months! I am so excited to return and start rocking dA again! Haha :D You all are the best!! Stay awesome!!

Your Sanguis :la:"
here is :iconpixiecold: again!!! ive got an email from my brother sanguis!!! he told me he wants to let you know the newest news ;) 

Here is the message:
 
"Hey my awesome fans :D This is sanguisgelidus speaking. I am doing well on my Mission, sometimes it is like a rollercoaster ride, it is not always so easy to be far away from home and my loved ones, but still I enjoy the time and I learn so much!! I feel God`s love for me and all of his children everyday, that is what keeps me being motivated, even though there are some People, who are quite rude sometimes. But well, that is life I guess! ^^ I miss you all a lot, but I am still practicing my drawing/painting skills whenever I have some spare time. I just started rediscovering my love for pencil drawings :D I am looking Forward to the time, when i can start my career as a freelance Artist, but till then I still have some work to do to find those People, who really Need the hope of the love of God. I love you all and I thank you so much for your ongoing Support!! Stay awesome and tuned for some more pencil drawings by me in the future :) And never Forget to share some love with the People around you, cause that is the reason we are here on earth!! <3"

Hey! :)

 

This is :iconpixiecold: speaking, the sister of sanguisgelidus! :)

Like you all probably know, my brother is currently serving a mission in Switzerland. (If you dont know about it, you can have a look here: ( sanguisgelidus.deviantart.com/… )

He has already been there for a month, so there are still 23 month to go, as the mission will be for 2 years! He wrote me something via letter, which he wants to share with you:

 

 

„Hey my awesome watcher and friends! :D

 

Woow, it has already been almost a month since i left home to serve on this mission! Leaving my beloved famaly, my friends and my secound home called: „Devianart" was a though decision! The first days on my mission were hard! But the more i am staying here, the more i feel how this experience changes myself as a person and also changes the lives of other people! We get to meet so many awesome persons, who are strongly against God in general and against relidion and they dont really treat us much kindly! XD But the open-minded and awesome people we met highly overweight the tough experiences! This journey has just begun, but I already found amazing new friends and had so many experiences, that will have an effect on my whole life...

I hope everyone of you is doing fine!! I seriously love you so much and am so grateful, that you stregthened my belive in myself and my abilities! There is still a long way to go, but in 23 month I will be so happy to return with a lot of lifechanging experiences and treasured memories, that will also have affected my art style and the way i see things!

I am practicing my artistic abilities every day here and I will have a lot of sketches and concepts after my mission for realize! :D

Please dont forget me, deviantart is an important part of my life and, if you belive it or not, God loves everyone of you so much! :)

 

P.S. I am currently in Wetzicon, near Zürich! Maybe I will meet someone of you here!? :D

 

Stay awesome!!!

Your sanguis!!! <3 <3 <3

Hey! :heart:

So, this is the last time, that I am writing something here on deviantart for the next two years.. If you don't know what I am talking about, better read this journal by me first: sanguisgelidus.deviantart.com/… xD

Soo.. the day after tomorrow is the day I am leaving for two years.. this is really a tough decision. But I am sure it will develop my personal character so much and I will collect a lot of precious and important experiences. I just want to tell you, each and everyone of you, that I really really am so thankful, that you are supporting me so much! I still cannot believe, that I gained a "fellowship" of incredible 41000+ watchers in 3 years. Art has always been my hobby, my passion. I always knew I would do something creative in my life, but I NEVER would have thought, that my hobby could also become my profession! But you have proven me, that I can achieve something with my art. You have shown me, how important it is to live your dream! And I encourage each and everyone of you, to live your dream, whatever it is! Don't go into a direction in your life, that wont make you happy, just because people are telling you to do so. Do what your heart tells you and what makes you happy! I whitness that dreams can come true and I promise, once I return after the two years, I will go on living my dream and building up my future with my passion, which is art. It is so amazing, that I am able to inspire people with what I am doing and I really hope everyone of you will get to achieve your goals and live a happy life. I know that for the next two years it is my destination to spread what fills me with joy, which is the gospel I am believing in. And afterwards it will be the time to reach for my dreams, which is to inspire people worldwide, to go on with my art, to create and to encourage others to create. And I am so proud, that you all have been part of this from the very beginning and have been supporting and inspiring me so much! :heart:

It may sound cheesy, but please, whatever you believe in, hold on to what makes you happy, seek for your dreams and goals and never stop creating! I wish you the best of time while I am away and I cant wait to return and meet you all again! I love each and everyone of you! :love:

See you in 2 years my friends! :wave:

:heart:
Hey my awesome watchers and friends! :hug:

Well, yes, like the title says, I will be leaving dA for two years as of the 18th of April, so in about a week. This is a tough decision, as dA has become an important part of my life, because I am actually trying to build up a living with my art. But you should know, that I am a Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.. :D) and I am 18, close to 19, so I am going on a mission. That means I will be going to the Alpine region (Switzerland, Austria, South-Germany) and talk to the people about what I believe in. You have to know, that this is something I carefully considered and I have a strong belief in God and so I want to share the joy my religion has brought me. The mission will be for two years and I wont have the time to upload any art to dA. My sister PixieCold will keep you up to date through journals on my page here, so you know what I am doing and how my life is going! :D

Please, if you disagree with anything my religion is teaching or if you are against religion/God in general, that is ok and it is your own opinion! I accept every single opinion or attitude, so please also respect my decision and don't stir up hatred against Mormons or God or anything in the comment section. Comments are appreciated and you can state your opinion, but hateful or troll-comments will be removed. Thank you for understanding! :heart:

Please don't think I will stop doing art. I already bought a sketch book, so when I have some spare time in these two years, I will sketch and collect ideas for the time after the mission. :D And I promise you: When I return I will upload a lot lot lot of art and I will never ever stop again! Please don't rewatch me or something, because after the two years I will return and rock deviantart!! :D I promise you! Art is my life and passion and it is my biggest dream to make a living with my art and maybe some day be able to work as a concept artist for Hollywood movies! :la: 

I seriously love everyone of you, because you showed me, what I am able to achieve with my art! You kept me creating and living my passion and you made me improve a lot! I owe so much to you! When I will return after the two years, there will be a lot to come! Until then, farewell my friends! :heart:
Heey people! :D

I just made an improvised piano cover of the song "Stay" by Rihanna... It is one of my fav songs in the moment. I have played the piano since I was 8 years old, but I never learned how to read the notes. So I learned everything by listening and trying out to hit the right chords. The cover wont be perfect in terms of arrangement, tempo or hitting the right notes all the time, but playing the piano is my passion (next to art) and I thought maybe it could inspire some of you! ^^ The cover is 100% improvised and it is not a "melody" cover, but only an arrangement of the chords of the song.
