I went for my pre-op exam last Thursday. Mixed reviews. My labs came back good. A1C is down to 6.2. Did not pass the EKG. The beat in the atrial (top chambers) of my heart are too long. Have to see a heart specialist Tuesday. I'll update when I get home. My Dr. said it's nothing dangerous, but must be checked out before surgery. Murphey is riding my shoulder again. Other than that I am having fun teasing the residents of the building. They are such fun. They love my hair. Some of them will even pet it. I measured my braid, from the hairband on the ponytail to the end and it's over 28 inches long. I can't measure it when it's down, but it comes past the end of my spine. I promised Mom I wouldn't cut it again, so we shall see how long it gets. I'll get my daughter to take some pics when she
The Silvertant classificationBefore we move on to the series of articles about the different type classifications (starting with 'Venetian/Humanist') I think it's important to establish a proper classification system.The Silvertant classification1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Why do we need to establish a new classification system?
To be honest, a system is limiting, and with the modern typefaces taking elements from various type classifications it's hard and at times seems pointless to try to categorize these typefaces. Regardless, it's important to know the history of typefaces and when certain features developed and a type classification system can help you keep track of things and label typefaces according to a wide range of parameters like x-height, stroke weight, contrast, texture, the shape of the serifs, the direction of the weight distribution etc. As I said in the previous article, the Vox-ATypI classification is a good point to start but it does need refinement. When we've established a proper system, we can then base the series of articles on this syste

As part of Traditional Art History Month I will be interviewing some of the Traditional Art Community, including your lovely TradART Community Volunteers
Today it's the lovely ^SylwiaTelari, your Community Volunteer for Traditional Art
Hi ^SylwiaTelari, tell us a little about yourself and your style of Art.
I'm a creation addict... and my name is Sylwia (: My personality and interests are clearly visible in what and how I do; a bit twisted, with a creepy shell, sometimes rigid, but I tend to hide a smile in details that require your search.
I'm crazy about trying new things and techniques and what you can see in my dA gallery is just a tip of an iceberg.
What is it that attracts you to Traditional Art?
It's traditional (: Anything I do has a connection to the past and it gives me a chill when I think that some of the techni

After quite a gap I've decided to try re-launching my long running emote news article series. I've had a couple of people mention how much they enjoyed it and now I've got a bit of extra time I feel I can give it another go. It's coming back in near the same format and with a slight change to the name 'So I heard you like emotes??' instead of the old 'So i herd u liek emotes??' as I wanted to drop the chatspeak element. I hope to post it every 1-2 weeks depending on how busy the community is at the time - So if you want more frequent articles keep posting more art .
If you enjoy the series please do let me know, and if you have any suggestions or news you'd like advertised give me a note
As a fan of The Avengers I thought both of these Avengermotes sets by ~EmotiKai were rather clever and well designed. Each of the characters is easily recognisable and nicely pixell

Manip Challenges #001If you've been on dA for a while, you may remember the manip challenges I used to run. The original manip challenges were chat based 2 hour challenges, but as I don't have that kind of time any more (the event would be all day long, with 3 to 5 challenges in succession), I decided to adapt them to be two weeks long and not in a chatroom instead.Manip Challenges #0011 year ago in Contests More Like This

A Brief History of TypographyA Brief History of TypographyA Brief History of Typography1 year ago in Editorials More Like This
A little insight into the history of not only Typography, but also of written language. This article will be far from covering it all, but focuses on highlighting some of the major events and periods in the history of Typography.
From the Greek roots τύπος typos = "impression" and -γραφία -graphia = "writing".
~ 30th Century BC – 200 AD
Or "Script of Nails / Cuneiform Script" is probably the oldest form of written text. This calligraphic form of writing was carved into clay tablets.
The Latin Alphabet
~ 800 BC – present
This is the basic alphabet used in all Western languages. The Romans based it among others
What we can do? Black March"Another protest is building steam. This time, its a boycott aimed directly at big media, called Black March. For the entire month of March, consumers are encouraged to not buy any media. Personally, I like the idea of this even better than the web blackout, as effective as it was. Sony, Disney, Fox, Paramount and the WB seem to think they are invulnerable because we, as consumers, have grown so dependent on them for our entertainment. Hopefully, a good participation level will show them exactly how wrong they are.What we can do? Black March1 year ago in Happenings More Like This

Follow me, the way they've told you to be seen
Follow me, and we'll meddle with the stars
Can you believe your jumped-up heroes to be thieves?
Still you long to kiss their apathetic hearts
Everything I need is everything that's killing me
And everything I hear is everything that fed to me
Everything I feel is everything I'm told to be
Everything I see is everything I'm led to believe
Follow me as we soar across this wayward sea
Or there you'll stand, divided from the stars
From what I see there's barely a true soul to reap
Deliberate or sleepwalk through reality
Everything I need everything that's killing me
And everything I hear is everything that's fed to me

The Dead Places: The Visual Delicacy of DecayIt’s easy to think of art in terms of what is instantly pleasing to the eye, of that which evokes a feeling of joy and hopefulness and blissful peacefulness or ecstatic exultation. This is the consideration of art as something that helps propel us forward through life – to out future great deeds, our career victories, or dreams of coming big events. But there is a peak to every life. At some point all people, and all places, and even all ideas have to begin the inevitable decline that is the other balancing half of a lifetime.The Dead Places: The Visual Delicacy of Decay1 year ago in deviantART Blog More Like This

Fear my steps to walk forward
like a shadow when light and dark be together
and the fear live between them
here i am
collect myself again
with all the pain search fo the light where no place for fear
where no place for the shadow who watch me and follow me
where i can run and no fear to catch my soul and prevent me to pass in my way
here i am i fight the darkness and heal my pains
away from the shadow of the soul
