What is this Awesome Achievement?
The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally handed out
on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.

The Deviousness Award for August2012 goes to Thiefoworld.
Thank you so much to Athos-of-Light for conducting this interview!

So, Don Jon, would you like to tell the world who you are and the things you do IRL and stuff?

Hi! My name is Jonathan but everybody calls me Thiefo, yeah even IRL. I'm a Graphic Designer doing some marketing work for a living. I also do some freelance work as illustrator. I've had the opportunity to work on some independent projects, children's books, mascots and a little concept art. I also have my own comic I publish online and also as printed books during comic cons. I like to read, to swim and to eat food... professionally. 

Also, a not very known fact about me is that I'm actually a rodent.

You're ancient, with an account of 7 years, what's kept you with us all these many years?

I'm only ancient in comparision because wreckling is so young, so when you put us together side by side I look oooold.

I think I've stayed here for so long because... I know it sounds cliché and many other have said it before, but DA is truly like a second home for me for many reasons; first off  the people I've met here, some of them are even my best friends IRL. I even met my boyfriend here! And many others I haven't had the opportunity to meet yet but I know we will eventually.

Besides that, the site is so huge, it has something for everyone if you know where to look, so there's no real excuse to get bored of it. I've improved my art more in these 7 years than in my whole life before DA, thanks to the people, the resources, tutorials, etc. So yeah, I don't think I'll ever leave, not anytime soon... at least not until forever or before my premium membership expires. Whatever happens first.

Tell us about receiving the Deviousness Award? How did that morning go for you? What does it mean to you?

It has been crazy so far! and a whirlwind of emotions. People have been congratulating me since I got it and I never know how to feel about the awesome things people say about me. I feel so unworthy of this amount of love!

It started very early in the morning that day and I actually found out via Twitter first, I saw a mention from alexandrasalas congratulating me and at first I couldn't believe it. I swear I started trembling I almost dropped my Ipod. I never imagined I would get the award one day, when you think about it, there are millions of users in the community and hundreds of very active and deserving deviants, why on earth would they choose me? People keep saying "I deserve it" and that they weren't surprised when I got it, well if they weren't, I was!

Up to this day I honestly don't know what to say or how to feel about it... but if there is at least one thing I'm sure about, is that I'm grateful. So thank you! 

If you were a chicken, and you found a road, what would you do?

If I were a chicken I would probably be lost, so I would follow the road in the hopes it will lead me home!

Which artists do you look at for inspiration? What do you do to recharge your juices.... >_> the creative ones obvs?

Pffff. There are tons of amazing artists, most of them (fortunately for me) here. Just to mention some on top of my head: betteo, nicholaskole, loish, SaiyaGina, chichapie, dronio, fabiolagarza, shoomlah and a large etcetera. Just by looking at their galleries I get a mix of inspiration and depression because my art is not as good as theirs. I also discover a lot of awesome art by looking at their favourites, I've met a lot of more awesome artists this way. I could browse DA all day. if I didn't have to sleep. 

That and music are my main inspiration sources, I simply can't create without music.

You've had a running comic for a while now, as mentioned by fourteenthstar in her write up about you, Give us a sneek into where it's headed?

First off, thank you so much to Fiona for mentioning it! Thanks to that people have been visiting the comic and it fills me with infinite joy! It means a lot to me because we have worked so much on it so everytime somebody says they like it a part of me screams of joy inside. 

The comic is about a journey, the discovery of secrets and the development of a bond between the main characters. Is one of those stories you think is about something at first but as the story progresses there will be twists in the plot that will change completely what you thought everything is about.... at least that's my intention! I hope everything comes out as planned and that I keep people interested! 

Truth is that while I already know how the story ends and know the main twists, I come up with the details on the go, so not even me know exactly what's gonna happen, hah! 

What makes you laugh the most?
I'm very, very, VERY ticklish... that's all I'm gonna say haha. 

Also, enchiladas?
Yes plz! With lots of queso. Thank you!

And finally, Tell us all the things you want to say!
Thank you so much Andrew! :hug: Love you lots! :heart:
Thank you also to all the people who have been saying awesome things in my profile.
Thank you Fiona for the award.
