My original Mission Statement can be found here. This new statement is about the blog going forward into 2019 and beyond. So, what is the purpose of this blog and why should you bother reading/browsing it? I’ll try to answer that with this very post!
I am an almost 34 year old digital artist from a little town in Southern Illinois who has a penchant for blogging. In addition to being an artist who works in the niche 3D art industry, I am bipolar, I am a gamer who also mods, a hobbyist photographer with two cute chihuahuas, I collect Funko Pops, and I blog about it all here @ me.d9s.co which is a subdomain of Dream 9 Studios. Dream 9 Studios is the official site for my artwork where you can also buy prints of all my artworks and my commercial resources for fellow digital artists. I used to keep everything on the D9S site but in 2016, I decided to split my personal musings into this blog and keep my business site, a business site.
The point of I’m On Dream 9 has always been to document my progress as I try to get my life on track with some fun diversions along the way. I talk about my health and my work along with my hobbies all (hopefully) in a way that’s entertaining for both you and me. The idea is that I’ve tried to get my life on track several times before and now I’m on the final dream/try. Here’s hoping this time I am finally successful in getting my life on track and to a point where it is worth living.
You can find out a little more about me (in addition to reading the various posts) by viewing the Information pages which include a page about me, a FAQ, and much more.

Here are the topics, types of posts, and features that I have been and will be posting on this blog:
I try to make little, quick vignette renders for all of my main posts using my 3D models and Poser. I started doing this when the blog first started in December of 2016 but stopped somewhere in 2017 and 2018. I’m now going back to making these little renders to decorate my posts going forward into 2019. The character I use in all my post renders is my D9S Lilla who is available for sale in my Renderosity store.
