Eve’s Rib on deviantArt

my dA siteFans of Eve’s Rib and its sister blog, Boys in the Pink, may like to know that I can be found on deviantArt:

Despite what its name might suggest, deviantArt is not a porn site (!) but a place for any artist to exhibit and discuss art of any kind. It has over 11 million members and over 100 million pieces of art. So go enjoy!

I’ve not finished posting all the artwork from the blogs but should catch up fairly soon. You can also see a few things I’ve picked out by other deviantArt users under Faves.
