Well Nuts... thanks all for your input but...The images that everyone suggested were rejected. By and large, many of you associate me with cartoon pin ups. I'm cool with that, but my faculty committee wasn't. When they rejected the images I said, "well I was hesitant to put these in the show anyway." One of the committee members asked me why, and I said "Well, I occasionally catch flak from certain people, primarily tribalist neo feminists, and it's always on obnoxious conversation that causes my blood pressure to rise." The committee memeber then asked me, "If you don't like those conversations, then why do you keep doing these pieces?"Well Nuts... thanks all for your input but...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been mulling it over. Hell, I'm still mulling it over. But I think my general answer is that I don't think any artist should succumb to coercion. I think the best counterpoint to art that you find disagreeable is to make better art as that counterpoint.
For example; as much as I enjoy cheesecake, I thought it'd be awesome to have an image of a woman in practical armor. Rather than

I've been 'round for a long time
And I learned along the way:
If you wanna go on the radio
There are words you just can't say!
Well, I thought hard about it
And I found a way around it
To help me go on the radio, you gotta say the words I can't.
You got to sing along to make this song
The dirtiest song that ain't.
Come on, ma'am, won't you give me your hand
And say the words I can't?

Down in Carolina
I met a girl with a nice [...]
So I reached down between us
And I whipped out my [...]
Skipped right past the suckin'
And got right down to [...]
She turned and said: "I gotta ask,
Would you slip it into my [...]?"
Help me go on the radio and say the words I can't.

Instead of ALL elemental types, I'm restricting it to one that I don't have unseen concepts for. That way, no one will feel cheated if they don't win because they make a concept similar to one I've already had bouncing around my head for awhile.A Little Design Contest8 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This

BREAKING NEWS!!!!! TomPreston Impervious To WaterHoly fucking H2Omfg Batman!BREAKING NEWS!!!!! TomPreston Impervious To Water2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Someone got a small amount of water on Tom Preston at the MCM London Expo!!!
Then nothing happened.
Which would suggest that Mr.Preston-
1. Is not a descendant of the Wicked Witch of the West.
2. Is not a Gremlin
3. Is not allergic to water
4. Is not a real life Ranma-Style-Hermaphrodite
5. Despite his best efforts to convince us otherwise,
Preston is not literally a delicate little snowflake.
6. Did not suffer any physical harm as a result of the water.
7. Doesn't have an irrational fear of water.
8. Did not suffer any psychological trauma as result of the water yet.
9. Some poor soul with a sensitive nose was just trying to give Preston
an impromptu 'whore's bath'.
10. There are some people on the internet inflating this incident way out of proportion like an angry mob from South Park- rabble rabble rabble rabble rabble rabble.
Rabblers, keep on rabblin.
Oh man I can't wait to see the cartoon Thomathy Preston draws about this encounter lol its
What I thought TF2 was about initiallyEDIT: CLICK THIS LINK FOR AMAZING.What I thought TF2 was about initially2 years ago in Personal More Like This
a.k.a, I really don't want to go to bed, so have a random, humourous journal from me.
Okay, the first thing I ever saw that had ANYTHING to do with TF2 at all was this video.
I don't remember how or why, but that video ended up giving me some weird incentives to watch other videos in the related section.

And I remember the last one I watched that day.
So, after watching all of those Garry's Mod videos, I got a really, REALLY wrong impression of the game.
First of all, I'm not sure why, but I thought it was for the Nintendo 64. THE NINTENDO 64.

God Bless America (Movie)I've just seen a damned good hilarious movie on demand (that's wet to be released) by Bobcat Goldthwait - a work of pure genius on how retarded society and politics are - called "God Bless America"God Bless America (Movie)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love this movie, I have a new appreciation for Bobcat Goldthwait; his view is quite similar to mine.
This movie is basically about a man who has gone off the deep end in life; suffering from constant migraines, stress; he's been kept up by his neighbors who won't shut their kid the hell up, he gets fired for sending flowers to a female co-worker, as well as having a brain tumor discovered and learning that he's going to die. He's irritated by the stuff he sees on TV that just reiterates the ignorance of humanity, the stupidity of this country. For one, the ongoing trend of a man who embarrasses himself on an American Idol type show becoming so popular. He tracks down and kills a teenage bitch subject of a "Sweet 16" program who bitches about all other, her father giving her the wrong car f

Live the dream, don't talk about it!Doug TenNapel, independent comics creator, is an inspiration to me in many ways. He has a fun, accessible art style that is dramatic and fresh. His story telling is always askew in the best of ways. I don't think I've read one of his graphic novels without having some smiles and a surprise or two along the way. On top of that, he is outspoken about almost everything in his life. (I think of him as the Rush Limbaugh of comics- oh man, that sounds really bad, but early Rush, not present day Rush, if that helps.) I agree with most things he states on Facebook. BUT- the thing I am most inspired about him is his drive (in the old days we would call that "work ethic"). The guy does NOT give up. Because of that, he single-handedly will put out a new graphic novel a year. While creating a webcomic. While pitching new TV show development ideas in Hollywood. While running a half marathon. While working freelance jobs.Live the dream, don't talk about it!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The Day of The Doctor is at hand.....As a long-time Doctor Who fan, I'm kind of excited over this.The Day of The Doctor is at hand.....2 months ago in Personal More Like This
****theories that may turn out to be spoilers****
"The name I chose was the Doctor. It's like a promise you make.", that's what the 11th Doctor said, shortly before a hitherto unseen Doctor appears.
My theory is that this was Doctor 8.5.
"He's the one who broke the promise."
We know that, as of the 9th incarnation, the Doctor is the last Time Lord standing after the final Time War against the Daleks. This conflict ended with the Doctor using some device/mechanism known as "The Moment", which saw about the destruction of both his own race and the enemy.
If "Doctor" is a promise, then I think genocide does a fairly good job of breaking it.
John Hurt's "Doctor" is the Doctor..... but not.

Five Tips to Starting FreelancingSo, you're tired of being unemployed. You've been stuck at home for the umpteenth month in a row, a new season of The Legend of Korra is still a year off, and your government support checks (should you be lucky to still be getting them) won't even come close to affording you a bus ticket to Everfree Northwest. Your evaluation of life is the same dissertation of tedium and monotony as Helen Keller's review of Chinese Democracy.Five Tips to Starting Freelancing1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
You know, pretty much on par with every other review of Chinese Democracy.
But know what? If you can't find a job, you'll make a job!

Screw them and that stupid help wanted sign at Quiznos. Now you're freelancing, baby.

Vigilante Oriented GroupsWhen the deviantART Groups system launched in beta nearly two years ago we fully expected it to become home to a large variety of Groups centered around every subject possible and that is exactly what has happened and we are really encouraged to see so many embracing the Groups concept and coming together around these common topics to share their thoughts and works.Vigilante Oriented Groups2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today we’d like to discuss a certain type of Group which often comes to our attention, and not always in a good way; the “vigilante” style Group.
For those who may not be familiar with these types of Groups, what we call a “vigilante” Group are those which are created and centered around gathering deviants together to encourage the reporting of rule breakers and members who may be in violation of one or more official policies.
While gathering together in order to promote following the rules is not a bad thing there are good and bad ways for these types of Groups to operate; We always appre
