PE: Interview with Monster Kookiesmonsterkookies was named the "Mad Scientist of Polymer Clay" by her fans, and it takes just a peek at her gallery to understand why. Many contradictory words can be used to describe her work: cute and creepy, feminine and industrial, realistic and extravagant, but always creative and flawless. We had the joy of interviewing her and I'm sure that all artists can learn something from her. Enjoy!PE: Interview with Monster Kookies3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Good day Kookie! Thank you for allowing us a few minutes outside of your creepy lab *shudders*.
You're welcome. I'm sure the killer cupcakes can take care of themselves for awhile. *grin*
I saw a group of killer cupcakes escaping while conducting this interview, but I was too afraid to say anything. If you see them, report them!
Let's begin by hearing a bit about yourself.
Your biography says that you wanted to be an artist since you were a mini Kookie. How did you end up being a polymer clay artist?
Attention all artisans: stop undercharging!As a member of the Artisan Craft community here at DeviantART, I looove to browse around the AC galleries and see what other deviants are up to, what things are trending, and look for up and coming artists to feature in the future. But sadly there's one trend I've been noticing that is very, very bad.Attention all artisans: stop undercharging!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Undercharging your work!
Let's start off with the most important thing. Now I know some cheap buyers love these low prices, but let's be honest cheap buyers-- you're not long term supporters. People who want your work for super cheap are people who will haggle or snag a deal and run. There is nothing wrong with having sales, getting rid of old charms for cheap, or even doing discounts for special occasions but you can't cater to the cheapskates! xD You want people who appreciate handmade items for what they are. And that's a unique, quality piece.
If someone wants to buy all your hard work for just $5, perhaps you could redirect them to Forever21 to get some mass produced jewelry i

Ten Tips for Photographing Food1) Set the Table...Ten Tips for Photographing Food2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In the image above, claremanson not only photographs something that looks enticingly delicious and creative, but she has additionally set the scene. She's made up the 'table' so to speak, so that it compliments and even enhances the Food that she's photographing. Looking carefully at your setting is a fantastic way of making your Food look good and unique. It's cheap too, just look at using glasses, sometimes with liquid in them, colourful tablecloths, napkins or any other items that might suit your image. Within cookery books these days, images that 'set the scene' are becoming increasingly more popular and widely used.
2) Play with your Food...
Here, LADYW has not just made a 'salad' or an arrangement of food. She's looked carefully at how she can arrange her food in the most creative and complimentary way. Using shapes and colour to make something look good

- He hides his Grell plushie in one of his many drawers in his office, and when he is alone, he cuddles it and treats it like Grell treats his Sebas-chan plushie.
- There is stuffing falling out of the doll, due to how much he hugs it.
- -Just since this is in 2014- William is obsessed with Angry Birds.
- He has an app on his iPhone called Smule Sing! He loves to play with it in private.
- He sings in the shower.
- He is a real lightweight when it comes to drinking.
- He is a chain smoker. -In my mind, he is a heavy smoker-

They have been working, planning, and raising money to make this goal happen for the sake of International ELF who've always dreamt of seeing Super Junior live.
Their first aim is to hold a concert at Las Vegas, MGM Grand Garden Arena. If all is successful there, it'll be possible for them to hold more concerts globally. And they are indeed making headway!
"SM Entertainment has recently informed us that they are currently looking for a time slot for our very first concert. Straight from the SM Headquarters in Seoul."

Repackaged 6th album "SPY"After releasing their much anticipated 6th album, ‘Sexy, Free & Single‘, Super Junior is gearing up for the release of their repackaged album, ‘SPY‘!Repackaged 6th album "SPY"3 years ago in Personal More Like This
‘SPY’, which will drop online on August 5th, will include all the songs from their original 6th album with the addition of four new songs.
The boys will be following up their promotions with the title track from this repackage, which is also titled, “SPY”. The song is said to be an urban dance track that sings of the humorous chase men endure to catch the girl he wants, while incorporating a James Bond 007 feel.
In addition to “SPY”, the album will also contain a new self-composed song from Leeteuk and Donghae, which should further pique the interest of fans. One of the new tracks, “Only U“, was written by the two members and composed by Leeteuk to express the group’s gratitude for their fans.
Another song, “Haru“, is reported to be wr
