Don't Drink the Turpentine!Hello folks! I've been meaning to discuss this topic here for a while, but I always forget! Well, this blog's topic is about dunDUNDUUUUN studio safety! Now I know, I know, the majority of you, myself included, don't have a private studio to work out of. Your studio may be you livingroom, bedroom, basement, or garage, but there are definitely precautions to be aware of while you're madly creating art. Note: none of this information is here to scare you or deter you from making whatever art you like, it's simply here to help you develop safe studio practices.So let's get started shall we?Don't Drink the Turpentine!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This part is specific to those of you who use traditional materials to make your artwork. The supplies we use today are much MUCH safer than those the old master's used, but there are still chemicals and materials you need to be aware of for your own health and well being (as well as those around you). I'll list the materials by

"Arthur? Where.. Where are we?" Your voice was small and wavering. You finally sat up holding your head. You heard Arthur shuffle behind you to support you. You carefully leaned against his broad chest and he sighed.
"We seem to be in your dream world. They aren't the best places." You looked back at him.
"Dream world? So, am I dreaming?" You looked around you to see large green hedges in one area. Mountains were carefully ridged and set in the back, leaving it an eerie feeling. You didn't like it here already. Arthur chuckled as you tried to stand, wavering from being unconscious for so long.
"No, love. You aren't dreaming. So what ever happens here, is real." You looked back at the tall g

Bitching About April Fools on DeviantartLets get a little perspective, peopleBitching About April Fools on Deviantart3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I Know that it is common knowledge that the art-world generally regards deviantart as a beckon of professionalism and respectability. To see something like this while browsing for serious prospective employees on another busy work sunday on a serious talent search site that is totally serious business guys is totally going to get you banned from the art world and loose you all the jobz you would have gotten that day! This is an outrageous prank! This is not what DA is about!
Come on guys, perspective.
If your gallery is so important to your life and career that you can not stand to have even one of your precious thumbnails momentarily obscured lest every employer decide that cats are no longer the "in" thing this year and black list you from the industry, you probably shouldn't be on DA. Yes, some people get a lot of traffic from DA, but lets be honest, this is not an appropriate site in which to host any kind of serious portfolio. Fine,

Protips1# How to price your art ?As we are on an artist platform, maybe it's time for me to share some of my experience as an artist with my fellows around here. Well, I'm sure there are a lot of articles of that kind on the internet, but I still receive the same questions over and over so maybe it could be a good idea to write regularly here about one of them... And if the concept pleases you, I will maybe write some more.Protips1# How to price your art ?7 months ago in Personal More Like This
The first subject is not the easiest, because money and art is still kind of taboo for lot of people, but I choosed it because I think it's one of the most essential point for beginners ( young artists as students or hobbyists who would like to sell some original works or comissions, or young freelancers ). Well, it will be a very general approach, so if you want to talk about a point more precisely, or if you need more examples, feel free to comment below. I'll be glad to answer!

Hard core, manToday at work, an older gentleman came in and asked how much it would cost to make copies of nine pages from a law book. I told him that at fifteen cents per page, his order would cost $1.35. He put one elbow on the counter, waggled his eyebrows, and said, “I bet you could use that for your party money, huh?”Hard core, man2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had to refrain from cackling because a) $1.35 won’t even buy a pack of those noisemakers you use to annoy your parents on New Year’s Eve and b) I am the absolute farthest thing from a party girl ever. My idea of a party involves Disney karaoke, sliding on the tile in my socks, and rolling around on the floor until my gas is gone. I have had, in total, approximately four to five whole glasses of wine in my entire life. I do not twerk, grind, bump, or air hump. I do not shake my thing up in the club with my homies. I do not participate in keggers. The shortest skirt I own comes to the middle of my knees. I would rather wear a bustle than

On today's edition of Weird Dreams I Have...____________________________________________________________________________________________On today's edition of Weird Dreams I Have...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Our neighbor's five-year-old granddaughter is coming over today to bake Halloween cookies, and I must have been thinking about it before I fell asleep last night because I had this dream that for whatever reason, we couldn't babysit her. So, in my unconscious need to reference Phantom in every possible situation, I made Erik do it instead. I don't remember most of the dream, but I do remember that he spent the entire time sulking and complaining about some sort of sewage backup problem while our neighbor's granddaughter made a holy mess in the kitchen baking.
And I remember I came home and Erik was wearing one of my t-shirts and these old green silk shorts my mom used to sleep in in the '80s, and everything was covered in frosting and I was really irritated, so I asked him what the heck happened and why he was utterly incapable of controlling a five-year-old. And then he stood up, pointed
Ant storyAnother one I couldn't bear to part with. Also the start of my bug obsession.Ant story1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Once a long time ago when I was homeless, my entertainment options were limited, so whenever I was eating I would set up little ant picnics.
I crumbled up a dorito in one spot, put a piece of chocolate in another for dessert, and poured a pistachio shell full of coke and set it down on the edge of the sidewalk, waiting for the ants to find it and come.
Eventually, a scout ant found it, drank as much coke as he could (His abdomen got so full it was stretched tight and see-through) like a selfish pig, and then ran home to tell the others. About 30-40 ants arrived at once to eat in a weirdly organized way, all stopping first at the chocolate to eat their fill, then to the coke to drink as much as they could hold, and then each collecting a piece of dorito to take home to the queen and kids.
The first really funny thing that happened was all the ants were lined up at the pistachio shell, drinking, just like horse

Basic Art Elements: LineHerro people! I've been giving this much thought and have decided to include along with our "Common Misconceptions" series a series based in the basic art elements followed by the principals of design. There are seven basic art elements as follows:Basic Art Elements: Line2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The purpose of knowing this list and understanding each element is to help you make good decisions compositionally as well as help you with formal analysis. Formal analysis is an identification of the basic art elements in a work of art which is useful in critique and also understanding the artist's choices in composition. Ideally, a piece that we would call "successful" would have each of the seven elements here present in some way, as well as the principles of design. A lot of our choices in art making can be either arbitrary or intuitive. Neither are inherently bad, but making choices that have a sound base in these elements will help you with some of the compositional conundrums we artists fa
