Erik Grove writes for Bleeding Cool from ECCC in Seattle,
Every comic convention I’ve ever been to has had a “breaking into comics” panel. It’s a no-brainer. When you ask creators what question they are usually asked most, most say it’s “how did you break in?”I’ve been to several of these panels. It’s how I first met Rich Johnston actually (though I’m sure he doesn’t remember it) at NYCC when he was on a panel with C.B. Cebulski back before Bleeding Cool was a glimmer in his eye. [I have tried to block all such events from my mind - Rich] The truth is that a lot of fans(and some journalists) look at comics and think “I want to do that!” and search for a magic formula to accomplish it.

Here is how my commission slots work. I will take a couple of commissions at a time, and when they are finished I will open up more slots. When I open the slots, I will post a journal saying so and tell you the number of slots that I've opened. This is the time to send a note. If you send a note before I open slots or after they have filled up, I will not take your commission. You will have to wait until more slots open up to try again.
If you get one of the slots, I will put you on the "Reserve List

An artwork of your animal friend
By an animal friend, I mean your own pet, but it can also be your family pet, family dog for example, as well as some animal you're closely connected to and love very much, like that one special horse of your granddad's you made friends with and love to ride.
Does my animal friend have to be..uhm...alive?
No. I even encourage making an artwork of an animal you loved very much, but unfortunately is no longer with you, for whichever reason. Always wanted to draw your dog you spent so many wonderful years together? Now's a good time.

There were no stockings hung up with care, just Electrical tubes hangging in air.
There wasn't anyone sleeping snugly in bed, just a puzzled Irken, scratching his head.
He sat there pondering as Gir snoozed away, and asked "What is the point of so called 'christmas day?'
The humans are jolly, the humans are kind, what's wrong with these people?! have they lost their mind?!"
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, Zim sprang from his chair to see what was the matter.
"I see you there Dib, with your clever desguise!!" "I'm not wearing one!" Dib said with exhasperated sighs.
"What do you want?! Can't you see i'm working?" "On christmas eve?" dib said, slightly smirking.
"What is it to you, stinking Dib thing? your very sight makes my amazing eyes sting!
"Leave this lawn before I blow you up"! Zim screamed at dib, feeling quite fed-up.
"Alright! fine! you don't have to sc

FOR THE GOOD OF YOUR DA ACCOUNT PLEASE READ THIS!!!!!!!!
OK, so many of you have heard this already, but there's a hacker going around on DA, he's getting into peoples accounts, and even worse, he deactivates them completely. There is a way to avoid this though, if you ever get an email from nobody@Da.com or something like that, asking you to change your passwords, don't do it, it's a trick to get your account hacked, just delete the email as soon
below is a message (from microsoft I believe) that is warning people of a massive hacker, and the steps you need to take to stop him from getting you.
IF A PERSON CALLED SIMON ASHTON ( SIMON25@HOTMAIL.CO.UK ) CONTACTS YOU THROUGH EMAIL DON'T OPEN THE MESSAGE. DELETE IT BECAUSE HE IS A HACKER!!
TELL EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST BECAUSE IF SOMEBODY ON YOUR LIST ADDS HIM THEN YOU WILL GET HIM ON YOUR LIST. HE WILL FIGURE OUT YOUR ID COMPUTER ADDRESS, SO COPY AND PASTE THI

Lemonade of the GodsI've found this recipe for natural and traditional lemonade. It's Incredibly delicious!!!! Perfect for a stinking hot day like I have here yet again in Perth Western Australia.Lemonade of the Gods3 years ago in Personal More Like This
6 decent sized lemons
1 cup of castor sugar
2 cups of water
Juice the lemons. You'll need about 2 cups of lemon juice by the time you're done, so 6 lemons is just an average suggestion. You may need less or more...6 does ok for me.
Now put the castor sugar in a pot and add the 2 cups of water. Simmer until the sugar dissolves completely and the water becomes clear again. Do not boil!! Just warm the water to dissolve the sugar so it just has to be warm, not hot.
Combine the lemon juice and the sugared water. Mix and stir a bit. I don't like the pulp all that much so I also strain the pulp out, but if you like it, then fine, leave it in.
Add more cold water to make up about 2 litres of lemonade. I like it with a bit of a lemon tang, but if you prefer a weaker taste then just dilute further.

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recent
