it's driving me nuts how many artists
give up doing art because of people or their situation.
So I wanna tell you my story, growing up and becoming an artist.
The reason I'm writing this out is because I really wanna be able to inspire, even if I'm not the greatest of artists.
I know for a fact, manga artists have much more hardship trying to become famous than painters and sculptor's etc.
Because there's just some idiots out there that think all anime is Sailer Moon, and who LOVES to control your life more than other people. Parents, friends w/e
My parents were very against the idea of me doing manga in the future, being famous and stuff.
It's childish, you're gonna be poor, you're gonna ruin your studies. My teachers weren't any better.
My real-life friends were either against, unsupportive or ignorant about doing manga art.
And being in my country with little population, that I can understand.
At this point, a lot of manga artists out there would give u

Racial Activism and MeHey hey hey! Rob here with another "something-to-get-off-of-his-chest"!Racial Activism and Me3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Time and again, I'm approached by some of my audience asking "Rob, why don't you ever draw black people?" First off, they may have not even looked into my gallery for those people of color or what have you, because they're there, sure enough.
The long answer is:
Well... what gets me is that when they find out I'm black, they expect that I should hold some sort of allegiance to "my race" or "make a change" as a "popular" black artist who can, figuratively speaking, "put blacks on the map".
There's nothing wrong with that, of course, and there's nothing wrong with people whose main goal is doing that. It's their lives, they're free to believe in whatever they want to.
But to hold me to a certain level where people think I'm obligated to draw my race more often than others because of the "history", I don't agree with. I'm an African-American born in the 80s. I was not born during the times of t

That Kony thing.Kony needs to be brought to justice. As I'm sure you are all becoming aware of while this video travels the viral circuit.That Kony thing.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'd like to share some observations of mine...
The first being: spending the resources to bring Kony to justice shouldn't be a priority. Why?
Because, in the grand scheme of things, he's just one person. And while one person can commit extremely heinous atrocities and crimes against humanity... There's a bigger picture to think about.
Besides, where do you suppose Kony gets all those weapons? Shouldn't something like that be the bigger priority?
Uganda isn't the pit of despair that it was when Kony was there. Yes, It's a nation recovering from a dark period, a struggling nation; but a nation that is trying to build itself. And that is what the real focus needs to be on --growth and development. That means education, economy, healthcare, infrastructure, and sustainable government.
That doesn't mean: Chasing s

Ego vs tirednessThe other day a friend told me that he meet an artist he liked in a con in san diego, and he said to me that he was a real douchebag. I replied to him, does he was all day signing to a lot of people at the both?, did he had pain in his back?, do you catch him running like crazy to the bathroom and you wanted to tell him the story of your life? Did you interrupt him talking to a friend he havent seen in 8 years? When you were talking to him the line was big so he interrupt you to give minutes to the person you didnt see at your back? Did he was sick and taking pills at the booth? Did he receive a call that he wont get paid and got mad? Did a close family member died recently and he just wants to be alone and shows no interest in your talking about Dragon Ball?Ego vs tiredness3 years ago in Personal More Like This

I love the way she drew Snowie as the "Queen of Thieves" . It was a very unique idea and it came out looking amazing. I love the crown and how she's perched upon a treasure chest. The whole setting just suits her personality very well, not to mention how soft and gentle the colouring is, must have taken a while! She definitely needed to place in this contest. <3

Poe's Death List:icontechgnotic:Poe's Death List3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Foreword by techgnotic
Fri Oct 21, 2011, 8:23 PM
As Halloween approaches, what better way to celebrate the season when the spectral
boundaries of the Kingdom of the Spirits of the Dead touch briefly with the mystical
edges of the Domain of We the Living than to invoke the battered and hellishly bedeviled
soul of Edgar Allan Poe to guide us in communication between (his) ghostly and (our)
ghastly planes of existence.
Poe invented the “detective” story and was an early father of “sci-fi”, and he was also an
extraordinary poet, but he is best known for his Gothic tales of mystery and abject horror –
nearly all of them anchored in the apprehension of an impending cruel and unnatural death.
