Daily Features - Oct + Nov 2011On my profile page, I feature a new deviation every day. The piece is usually something that caught my eye. Could be an amazing digital painting, a fun stamp, a quick photograph that made me smile, perhaps a piece for a weekly theme, whatever. However, it moved me enough to share it with my visitors. Below is a list of the artists which I featured over the past month. I am showcasing different pieces from their gallery in the hope of showing them a bit more love.

7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better ArtistPractice, practice, practice. Gah.7 Tips To Instantly Become A Better Artist3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Attend life drawing classes over the summer. Blegh.
Take a sketchbook with you everywhere you go, and fill up ten of those bad boys at the coffee shop. Pfft.
Let's be honest here. We all want to become better artists, like, right frickin' now. We don't even want to have to suffer through hour-long tutorials of some pompous snooty hack bloviating over the intricate methods of drawing eyes on YouTube. We want progress, we want improvement, and we want it on our desk in ten minutes ago!
Fine, fine, I hear ya'. While these aren't going to make an instant Leonardo da Vinci out of you, these might get you up to...ehh...Basquiat caliber. Sure, I've made tutorials, but those are more about setting up Photoshop for the sake of coloring an image, and not so much building yourself artistically. Those are more technical lessons.

Calla lily, carnation, daisy
Silently chase away your worries
Become your shield whenever you fall asleep
I cried out
Please don’t leave me behind, leave me behind
So you held me tight
And said I will be just fine, I will be just fine, I will be just fine
Petals dance for our valediction
And synchronize to your frozen pulsation
Take me to where your soul may live in peace
Touch of your skin sympathetically brushed against
The shoulders you used to embrace
Sparkling ashes drift along your flames
And softly merge into the sky
Aroma drags me out of where I was
Cream rose, stargazer, iris
Construct the map that helps me trace your steps
Zipped my mouth
I just keep climbing up, keep climbing up
Justify our vows
I know you are right above, you are right above, you are right a
I hate hate hate the word "talent".I'm so sick of it. This magical word that means artists don't have to work for their skill, they are just "born with talent".I hate hate hate the word "talent".3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's really getting on my nerves. I worked hard for YEARS to build up my skill, I went to college for 4yrs, and studied my head off, I now have a job as a technical production specialist for children's games, and somehow people just chalk it up to 'talent'.
Well it wasn't talent it was WORK. They'd never just say a doctor was talented.
I saw was watching one of my favorite little animated shorts by a student on youtube, and saw in a comment something like 'I had a similar idea, and if I'd had any talent this is what it'd look like'
And I was so offended for the artist. YEARS went into this, any animator can tell. It takes persistence, and work, and dedication, and WORK to finish a 5 minute long traditionally animated short. And this person has the nerve to say if they'd been born with some magical gift, they could have done it too.
Being an artist isn't winning
Je Suis CharlieIn case you haven’t heard, this is what happened yesterday. Terrorists entered and open fired on cartoonists at the Charlie Hebdo studio in France, killing 4 cartoonists, 2 cops, and overall 12 people in the process before getting away.

Ideals vs CharactersI am always amazed at what ends up being “controversial” in my artwork. While with some works I KNOW it’s going to be controversial (such as any time I bring up politics or religion), there are often a lot of times where I just make a gag strip and think nothing of it... only to come back the next day and see people writing up ESSAYS on why it’s the worse thing ever.Ideals vs Characters9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Granted, I have the undesirable position of having a lot of people following me who insist on inserting drama where no drama really exists. So part of that is just the fact that I’m semi-famous on the internet. And still... It just baffles me how quickly people feel the need to see the worse in everything.
Right now, the past couple of NSYAC strips featuring Emily and Jade have gotten some... interesting responses. There seems to be this strange perception that Emily MUST conform to some arbitrary standard of a righteous educational achiever simply for the fact that she’s going to colleg

Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous ExamplesJust for fun I thought I'd do a rundown of the most common forms of humor, their definitions, and examples. This is not a complete list by any means, but they are a list of many forms of humor and literature discourse which often get confused of mixed up.Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous Examples1 year ago in Personal More Like This
An imitative work created to mock, comment on or trivialize an original work, its subject, author, style, or some other target, by means of satiric or ironic imitation.
Example: The movie "Airplane" is a parody of 1970's disaster movies. Many of Weird Al's music videos are parodies of other more famous music videos.
A work of visual art, literature, or music that imitates the style or character of the work of one or more other artists. Unlike parody, pastiche celebrates, rather than mocks, the work it imitates.
Example: The movie "Super 8" is a pastiche of 1980's adventure films, specifically imitating the style of Stephen Spielberg's early career,
