I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost... I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn't my fault.
It still takes me a long time to get out.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in. It's a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault. I get out immediately.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.
I walk down another street.

Alice in Wonderland
Published in 1865, Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is celebrating its 150th Anniversary this year.
Alice has been quite busy during that time. She’s had her story adapted into several movies, TV shows, ballets, plays, operas, and theme park attractions. Her trip to Wonderland is quite well known around the world. What is less well known is Lewis Carroll’s (whose real name was Charles

I am switching gears as there are some great prizes - and I have to update the prize list!!
The contest is "Legends, Myths, and Fairy Tales". Each person can enter two pieces. Tell me a legend, fairy tale or myth- one of your own, or retell an old one. Change the ending of a classic and give it a new twist. Combine several tales at once - be creative. The two categories are literature (Poetry and Prose) and Digital Art.
Please send your entry by message here and put "Contest" in the subject line. Include the thumbnail. The description needs to have the name of the contest (Legends, Myths and Tales) and link to my page! All pieces must be new works. The new contest starts April 27 and ends June 30.

Discussion Time! Points~~UPDATE 12/2/11~Discussion Time! Points~3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Found a calculator so that you can know the exact amount to convert if you even need to do point commissions:
Ok, so I was browsing through dA to find some fancy stamps for my page, for commissions and stuff, and I came across this certain stamp here:
Basically, 1 = ¢1.25. A SINGLE PENNY AND A FOURTH. THIS > :iconpennyplz:
There are many people who don't even realize this since they get their points donated to them for doing cheap commissions.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all about self-promotion and getting paid for work. However, it tears me up inside when I see artists, who skill-wise are fairly good, offer their pics for 10 or less (less than a single quarter).
There are some of you that may be doing commissions for roughly that amount. THAT'S FINE. Nothing wrong with getting yourself out there or just practicing on your work in general. However, try to understand this:

When inspiration is far to be found...We all get these anoying times when we really want to make something cool, get inspired and work that magic. We see everyone around us (online) do it, but how come we are not?When inspiration is far to be found...7 months ago in Personal More Like This
So we look for ways to get inspired, we ask around, find these usual answers: go watch a film, listen to music.. take a walk...
But even when we do that, we still end up stuck most of the time.
Part of the solution is knowing WHY we get stuck and this is my theory.
ADT - Attention Deficit Trait.
'Experiencing an inner frenzy of distractability, impatience, difficulty in setting priorities, staying focused and managing time. Those are our biggest enemies as they all end up cluttering your head and keeping you from spending quality focused time on a singular topic.
Everything we do now a days is based around multitasking and it is giving us a constant overdose of information. Let me elaborate.

As we traverse the final phases of maximum raw information accumulation, potentially equipping us for jacking in to the promise of the Singularity, the contents of many lifetimes’ worth of knowledge, art, education, and history are now at our fingertips. More and more Universities, libraries and arts institutions have swung open their digital doors and granted access to their lectures, courses and curricula free of charge to anyone in the world with a connection to the web. Access to education is fundamentally shifting our society towards an unmappable

St. Patrick’s Day
Legend has it Patrick was the son of a Christian deacon spreading the Faith in Roman Britain in the 4th century. The 16-year-old boy was kidnaped and enslaved in Gaelic Ireland. Six years later, God supposedly spoke to Patrick, telling him a boat awaited him on the coast to take him back home. The escape was successful. He later returned to convert the pagan Irish to Christianity, eventual

Joan Miro Homage
April 20 marks the birthday of Joan Miró, one of the most important modernist painters of all time.
Miró was born in Barcelona, and strongly identified with his Catalan and Spanish roots throughout his career. He traveled to and from Spain frequently throughout the course of his life, even though he was briefly exiled during Franco’s rule.
One of the defining features of Miró's career was his refusal to associate full
Early Access to Pottermore: Defending Hufflepuff!Hello, world! My latest news, other than routine freshman life, is that recently I was finally allowed early access to Pottermore! (Which is very exciting, seeing how I'm a bit of a dork when it comes to Harry Potter. Don't hate.) I'm part of the group that testing it before it's release, so it's been very fun! (Fyi, the rest of this journal is going to be purely Harry Potter/Pottermore related, so if you don't care for such things, run along.)Early Access to Pottermore: Defending Hufflepuff!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those of you who haven't had a chance to experience Pottermore yet, know that it's very fun and addicting, while most of it requires a completely loyal obsession to the books and their details, instead of merely the movies. The art that is used to capture the so-called "Moments" of key parts of each chapter are beautiful, leaving just enough to your imagination. (E.G. the faces of main characters.) It's awfully addicting to investigate each Moment for various items, as well as relive the story. But more than anything, I think, the two mos

The theme of this contest is combat/fighting meaning your entrant must feature 1 or more of my OCs listed below in a fight (either beginning, middle or end of one)
All my Project Orion OCs are actually characters for a fighting game I would like to make as such I thought it would be good to see them in action. For the contest the picture you submit must be of at least two people fighting, ideally I'd like them to be two of my project Orion OCs fighting however I am leaving it open to also include one of your own OCs fighting one of mine if you so choose. They do not have to be fighting one of your OCs they could be fighting other characters OCs (with their permission) or even existing characters such as Ryu or Ken from Street Fighter. There can be more than 2 people in the picture. Some of my Project Orion OCs have powers to so inco

Amazing concepts, extraordinary imagery, and so much heart and soul. Each one of the following poems deserves a Daily Deviation any day and most of them are less than 10 fav.
