I need a cover that will shelter my soul
cause I don't want you to see me
no I don't want you to see me
when I lie, when I lie
find the pieces that I lack

And a Biophilia photoshoot (shot by Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones) has been released in parts over the past few weeks. I just didn't feel like it was update worthy on its own. But since a new photo has been released just a
Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!Why don't I get enough freelance work? Are my prices too high? I see these types of questions on Deviant Art a lot. Whether you are just starting out or you have been freelancing for a while, there is a good chance that you can improve your workload and income by applying a little bit of self confidence and assertiveness.Finding Freelance work: pricing and self doubt!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) Don't wait for work to find you. Go find work. Read job ads. Find jobs that suit your skills. Also adapt your skills to match the jobs you find... That's very important. If you can provide a style or service that other artists can't match, that gives you an advantage. Make a list of freelancing sites and other sites with job advertisements. You can find some of them here: http://friendlyhand.deviantart.com/journal/#/d52v4i3 Keep track of which sites provide the BEST job leads for you and visit them regularly. Be prompt when applying for jobs. Some clients will take days to pick an artist but other clients will choose from the first few applicants.

DON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah BradleyDon't go to art schoolDON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah Bradley1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change.
I'VE HAD IT.
I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.
I have a diploma from the best public art school in the nation. Prior to that I attended the best private art school in the nation. I'm not some flaky, disgruntled art graduate, either. I have a quite successful career, thankyouverymuch.
But I am saddened and ashamed at art schools and their blatant exploitation of students. Graduates are woefully ill-prepared for the realities of being professional artists and racked with obscene amounts of debt. By their own estimation, the cost of a four year education at RISD is $245,816. As way
Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.Respect Yourself2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

My UFO storyThis is Nana speaking.My UFO story3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have something very important to say.
A year from about two days ago, at dusk, I spotted a UFO.
Yes, an Unidentified. Flying. Object.
I was at a camp in north Georgia for twelve days. I had come alone, and was surrounded mostly by strangers.
In the few days prior to the sighting, I had gotten myself into a verbal catfight with some bitch whose name I'd rather not mention (and wish I didn't remember). I had insulted her for no real reason, and she gave me hell for the six remaining days I spent at camp. The whole experience still haunts my self-esteem to this day.
On the second-to-last night at camp, I was sitting on the porch, feeling depressed and watching the silhouettes of bats fly around. The Sun had already set over the mountains. The Evening Star (Venus) was still visible, but slowly descending.
At some point, I looked up and saw that another star had appeared next to Venus. It looked kinda red, and not as bright as Venus. It was also rising instead of se

Holiday Card Project 2014Holiday Card Project 20141 month ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
The deviantART #HolidayCardProject is back for its 8th year! With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In 2013 alone, the Project received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for deviantART volunteers and hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who sends in a card will
