I've put together a mini-anthology of my comic and doodle work over the past year. You can download it for free at Gumroad.
You literally do not have to pay anything for it (unless you feel like it) - it's 48 pages of comics and drawings about love, longing, and longevity from 2012 to 2013.
I know I haven't uploaded all of it to dA yet, so you might even see some new work.
Enjoy it! Thanks for watching my work - I really appreciate it, and I love going through and seeing the comments (even if I'm awful at responding sometimes).
And happy late Valentines Day!

Well, on the fifteenth of December, congress is finally going to decide once and for all- for real this time- whether to enforce it, or can it.
People are talking about tomorrow being "The last day freedom lives", and getting ready to delete their accounts the next day, be it on DA, youtube, or well, pretty much anything.
Up until now, pirates have been punished individually. This person or that person gets in trouble for copyright infringement, and the other denizens of the internet continue their quiet lives undisturbed, for the most part not having to worry about getting in trouble. This bill will change everything. Now, you are accountable for what the pirates do. Even if most of the people who use the internet regularly are honest folk who don't use copyrighted material as they shouldn't, there's always still goi

When I first sold LMS to Paramount, a lot of people asked me: "How much money did you get?" "You're probably rich now, right?"
I mean, the solid gold mansion I bought was just a little gift to myself...but...
Ever since I was little, I've known I wanted to draw. From the day my parents put a pencil in my hand, this was my future. I just knew it, I had that gut feeling. So I stuck to it, and thankfully it took me to heights I'd have never imagined possible. Now with my new book Redemption heading off to studios soon for a hopeful movie package, I can't wait to see where this new road takes me.
That said, there's something else that tops all of this.
The other night I went out to visit my girlfriend's cousin and her family. Incredibly kind people with very sweet kids. Other than the two parents, there were 3 kids, but the one who caught my interest was the eight-year old boy, Diego.
Diego, shy, tiny, slender, reminded me of myself when I was his a

This is one of the biggest problems people have when trying to start their comic. They have this fabricated notion that the story and/or art have to be the perfect before you can even start. Well, I have news for you... that's not how it works.
All of your favorite comics, books, movies, and video games did not start out the way they ended up being published. The creator wrote down their idea. Then revised it, changed it, came up with new ideas half way through until what was produced simply resembled the original idea. It was perfected through its creation, not prior to it. This is especially true with comic books. Comic book series, especially long running series, go through a long and slow change as the creator(s) figure out who the characters are and how they live, and even what they look like. And the more they work on their comic, the better it gets. (especially art.)
The two examples I love giving i

PS: this one is on the verge being settled, Disney already started working on it, she's being helped.
Seeing posts like this, I just thought I should share some knowledge I have, I personally already have met 3 different artists who doesn't know what to do when:
Record company ripped them off
Publisher ripped them off
Big corporation used their artwork without permission (that's usually by accident because of an outsource company broke the rule etc)

THAT'S RIGHT YOU ARE A SHOE.
THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT NOT BEING A SHOE BECAUSE IN MY MIND YOU ARE ONE AND THAT IS MOST UNFORTUNATE.
AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU CONCEPTUALIZED AS A SHOE IN MY IMAGINATION YOU SHALL REMAIN AS SUCH.
THIS MAKES ME WONDER WHETHER ALL PEOPLES AND OBJECTS CAN BE CONCEPTUALIZED AS SHOES AND THUS BECOME SUCH, GRANTING ME ABSOLUTE POWER OVER THEM. DOES SNIPPY HAVE A CLEVER ARGUMENT? NO HE DOESN'T, HE'S A SHOE. SHOES CAN'T HAVE CLEVER ARGUMENTS.
I FEEL LIKE THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD HAS BEEN LIFTED OFF MY SHOULDERS NOW THAT EVERYTHING IS UNDER MY CONTROL, NOW THAT YOU ARE ALL SHOES. I NO LONGER HAVE TO ANSWER TO MY REGRETS AND PAST MISTAKES BECAUSE THEY ARE SIMPLY SHOES.
I WAS EVEN ABLE TO PAINT PHOTOSHOP IN PURPLE COLOR (TO PLEASE CAPTAIN) AND SHE DIDN'T EVEN PUT UP A PROPER FIGHT BECAUSE I IMAGINED HER AS A SHOE.

A Final Straw Has Been Broken.So, the title suggests this is a rant, right? Well, kinda sorta. Do you remember sniperray? The kid that goes to extreme lengths to fullfill his selfish and disgusting intentions? Well, he's back at it again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cf-9zoZbhpM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05EE4BvjbQk These two videos have been flagged and taken down under copyright claims, directly stating that Ironstraken64 is responsible. I haven't bothered this kid in almost 2 years, and this is the result. I thought to myself "you know, this dumb shit for brains wont do shit, I'll just ignore him." Well, I took a half measure when I should have kept demolishing his willpower. This person has the fucking nerve to not only get my account banned on youtube, but to also live in an imaginary world where he cannot be criticized and that anything even remotely relating to him is copyright infringement. This person is fucking scum, nothing else can be done to change my mind. So, you wanna know what I'm going to dA Final Straw Has Been Broken.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Historical Disney Princesses FAQRather than answering these individually over and over again, I'm just going to leave this here and add to it as needed:Historical Disney Princesses FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
- I'm not telling you which princess I'm doing next.
- I would appreciate it if you didn't tell me what character I should do next, or what you're looking forward to, or what character you hope I'll do! It's very sweet and I definitely appreciate the sentiment, but consider the fact that you're something like the 400th person to tell me about Elsa, or Anna, or Merida- it's not adding a lot to the conversation.
- No, I'm not doing any Kingdom Hearts characters. There's no particular historical precedent, so they don't really have anything to gain from this series.
Are you going to do Merida?
YES PLEASE STOP ASKING sobsobsob
Are you going to do Elsa and Anna?
Are you going to do any more pieces in this series?
Yes! Let it be assumed that I will continue doing these until stated otherwise.

Who knows when you're going to hit the zeitgeist, and suddenly your world changes in way you could never predict?
I was 20 years old and messing up everything in a monumental way. I'd had my heart broken, failed to stay focused on work, and run up a ton of debts. I was drinking Falstaffian quantities, and doing pretty much all I could to avoid facing into my own reality. My electricity was cut off, then my phone. Instead of collecting rent from my lodger I got drunk with him on a fairly nightly basis.
I needed to face it - I was a mess.
I returned to London aged 21 with a ten pound note in my pocket and a dear friend prepared to put me up while I got back on my feet. Brian West was a cartoonist and writer then, and together we tried numerous things to bring in money and put beer and food in our bellies. We spent our weekends getting up at 4.30am to secure a slot at Campden Market where we drew caricatures. We planned magical comedy skits f

A big black hole called: Procrastination.Procrastination is an infinite cycle that becomes bigger and bigger the longer it's there and the time wasted being sucked into it is a dark matter of nothing.A big black hole called: Procrastination.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
hahah I figured this was the most dramatic way to put it, but yeah, it's real and it sucks.
For those who don't know what it means: Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute" before the deadline.
We all suffer from procrastination. It is pretty innocent when you have it with household chores or packing your suitcase before you go on a holiday.
But it becomes a serious problem when you do it with the important things in your life. I take it you're an artist if you're reading this and the biggest aim of being an artist is to be an even better one.

Hot Topic DA Art Theft...Maybe?Changed User AgreementsHot Topic DA Art Theft...Maybe?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
You know what I hate about companies? The fact that they can, effectively, take their user agreements and update them without your consent. Thus changing the rules to something you’ve already signed long long ago. I signed up for DA 10 years ago but I’ve never once been asked to agree to the frequently new Terms of Service Agreements they keep updating.
Recently it’s been called to our attention that now DA can license your work, even fanart, off to other companies for a profit. DA gets licensing money, the product makers get money off the merch they sell... but the artist gets nothing. Worse yet, DA doesn’t even need to ask you for permission to do so.
This recently came to our attention in a big way when DA user :iconrismo: discovered that his Adventure Time fanart was being sold on Hot Topic without his knowledge. http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/Adventure+Time+In+The+Rain+T-Shirt-10171581.jsp

I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
