The DreamThis was a Facebook status I made last night, but by request, I'm posting it here:The Dream4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I hate when people call me "lucky" for the successes I've had. I worked hard for them. Real hard. Possibly too hard. For that same reason, when people who give up on their dreams complain to me about their lot in life, I'm not gentle with them. I can't be. I know life can get really tough, but to give up in the face of adversity shows a real weakness of character. To watch people give up saddens me, and kind of angers me as well.

Retirement and Other ThingsAlright, So if you haven't seen my newest comic, "This Is It" you should go and check that out. You have? Good. Now we can get on with this. So, I really didn't want to just quietly slip away like so many artists do. And I felt like I had been for some time, so I decided to go out with a bang, and really pour my heart into the latest comic. I tend to be a really fast drawer, so spending about a day per every two pages of the comic was really a foreign concept to me, but in the end I think it really paid off, and I can see now that my time here has helped me accomplish what I wanted to do. I now feel comfortable in my drawing ability for the human form, my coloring technique, etc, and I feel like having had this experience I'm ready to move on in the arts field, away from TG, but further into anything else I choose. You see, it's great having all of you people here, the fans are great, I love everyone but at the same time I'm still in theRetirement and Other Things1 month ago in Personal More Like This

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq
Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update)Our view at deviantART regarding SOPA is that it's probably a bad idea. There should be better ways to deal with mass infringement on the Internet than this.

“Sometimes we lay aside our own troubles when we wipe away another's tears.”

his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

Discipline Building StrategiesHey everyone!Discipline Building Strategies7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
It's 2015, and I thought I'd share some of my thoughts on building discipline and improving your work ethic. It's quite a long text but i hope it's worth the read. Right at the beginning of 2014 I read an article that seriously helped me build up a stronger work ethic than I've ever had before, and over the year I've accumulated more knowledge that has helped push it further. I want everyone to have a super productive year, and hopefully maintain that work ethic for the rest of your life, so here is what I know about discipline. Everything here is collected from listening to other people, be they artists, business people, scientists, or comedians. And they've all helped me in varying degrees. Also, this is mostly aimed at people just starting out who may have problems working consistently but don't know how to overcome that, as I had in the past. But if you're a solid worker already, I hope some of this echoes your own experience or helps you anyways.

In the pre-internet days, inflatable fetishists found each other through classified ads in city newspapers. That was before my time, but I was aware of my weird interests from an extremely young age, long before it turned into an actual fetish. One of the people who had been using classifieds to make contact with others, Buster of the Balloon Buddies, posted to Usenet, and I replied to him in 1994 when I first got private (i.e. non-school, moved into my own apartment) online access. The other person I met was Seritaph, who I found shared my love of tightly inflated hourglass shapes -- a brother-from-another-mother situation. More than anything, I was thrilled to find that these crazy thoughts in my head were not just me -- t

I will not be subjected to criminal abuseIts time for another story, do you guys want a story? I will give you one. This one is about my early days in the work industry and how you should always becareful and know your legal rights before you head in, you do not want to be subjected to criminal abuse without knowing. This happened a few years back, straight out of Design College, when I was still an 'Amateur Graphic Designer' as they like to call me. So I was searching online for jobs and found one that requires a Graphic Designer with artistic skills who can create original characters as well as making little icons and graphics stuff. I was like HELL YEAH THATS ME, so I sent them my portfolio, back then it had really unprofessional messy drawings and then a few graphic design works and photography bullshit pieces that I threw in here and there to show my 'range', I didn't have a consistant style and I had no idea what people wanted to see lol. So the company saw my work and they told me to come in. I was reallyI will not be subjected to criminal abuse2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Tip for Today: When to give up?Never give up just because you don't think you're good enough. We've all had our doubts in life. Successful people do not give up easily. We must prepare and prepare again, try your very hardest and then about 50% more that you didn't know you had consistently, then keep going twice as long as you ever thought you would or could.

There are some things I would be glad, someone would have told me earlier...
Marketing is such a thing - since I´m freelancing 5 years now it is save to say that is no accident that I´m happily blessed with the "just right" clients and it all boils down to be due to authentic marketing. Honestly- I embrace everything that has to do with it, below you find my write up to get a better understanding of what it is all about.
I always found interest in psychology and marketing but when I jumped on the freelancing train 5 years ago I especially embraced anything that I could find to help me understand, use and practice marketing as a way to keep myself busy with work that I love to do and to collaborate with people who respect what I do.
In the process I learned much from many different experts and in this post I will forward what I´ve learn
