Does anyone know why jon-lock has deleted his account? It's like he's completely disappeared from the internet. He was one of my favorite artists, and I would love to keep following his work :)

I was wondering the same thing I found out about it today. And I'm sad, I miss seeing his art.

I thought I had checked his tumblr, I guess not. It looked like he had packed up his bags and everything. jonn-lock.tumblr.com/ It's this one, right? It's completely empty...

No, I only noticed it now to be honest. But I think it's been a while, because now that I think about it I haven't seen any art from him in my inbox for at at least a couple of months, and haven't seen his work on the front page for some time either. I hope everything is ok.

Just wondering, but have you gotten Jon Lock's permission to repost these artworks? He has a clear "no resposting without permission" rule. If you have, then all I have to say is thanks for spreading the wonderful artwork! ^^

Am I the only one who for some reason don't really enjoy these?

You may have to be numb (or super technically-minded) to not say they are excellent drawings but for me, what I see in these personifications are so idealized that I find it very dissonant from how I know these sites. It's like drawing one of these anime-style drawings and passing it off as a self-portrait.

Each person see's a site they use in their own vision. You personally won't be happy until you make your own version.

I started watching him after I saw his fisheye placebo fanart.. but I wasn't really convinced by the originality of his style..since it had some obvious :iconyuumei:-influence... :/

BUT I have to say that there's great potential in his art and it's true that his recent works are AWESOME. *-* ..
even though I kinda agree with all those who commented that there were others that had the same idea and made art that deserve the same popularity. .. but we just can't control this 'popularity thing' .. we'd ALL be 'famous' if we could. and that's not possible.

aah =_= what do I know. For now I think I'll just stick to enjoying his art and look forward to observing the development of his style~ ^.^

Eh then maybe he's just lucky. But whatever the case may be, can't actually say he doesn't deserve the recognition he is receiving. Whether or not others receive the same is irrelevant.

He works hard for his Art, and as such he gets noticed. Thus he deserves it.
