FAQ What does "yuumei" mean?FAQ6 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yuumei (幽冥 or 幽明) means light and darkness, strange and deep, hades, and semidarkness. Not to be confused with yuumei (有名) which means famous... (In my defense, I picked this name when I was 12 and didn't realize it also meant famous...)

Why didn't you reply to my comment/note?
I'm terribly sorry but due to the enormous amount of notes and comments I receive, it's simply impossible to read and reply to most of them. I tried to reply to all the notes but it eventually just got to be too much and took time away from drawing. If you have very important news to tell me (such as reports of art theft, requests to help none-profit organization, or business offers, etc) please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Fantastic Feature Tuesday #2hello. i have upheld my promise to feature wonderful pieces of literature every tuesday, and i actually put a lot of effort into it this week (which is great because i have nothing better to do). every piece i am featuring has been specifically selected from a deviant's gallery - i actually browse through their gallery and chose a piece that i felt captured my attention just from reading the thumbnail and held it all the way to the end. i also try not to feature something that has been submitted to tons of groups and already gotten a lot of favorites and views because what's the point of a feature if it's already been seen? i'm trying to bring unknown writers into the spotlight. (okay, that doesn't always hold to be true, you'll probably find someone fairly popular here. i'm sorry. sometimes i just can't help it. i'm trying hard not to!) i'm rambling. here they are!Fantastic Feature Tuesday #23 years ago in Literature Features More Like This

"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

Sipping tea with your Muse Only by fostering a facility with the vocabulary of your artistic medium of choice, can you begin to really free yourself to be open to being creative with it.Sipping tea with your Muse11 months ago in Personal More Like This
The size of that vocabulary is another matter, and that’s about growth, improvement and development. These are important as well, and intricately linked to creativity, in parallel (more on that in a future article). But first let’s talk simply about the genesis aspect of art.
Remember when you were in high school, doodling in the margins of your notebooks? Ballpoint pen and edges of blue-lined notebooks, with half an ear listening to the lesson of the day? There was a familiarity in that setting, and ease that you moved through when you sketched these throwaway doodles. Every once in a while you’d accidentally make one that you’d really like, and you’d save that scrap of paper with notes on American History melding into the lines of a drawing of your D&D charac

SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.#SixWordStories Feature: October 8 - October 222 years ago in Literature Features More Like This

Doctor Who / Pokemon Theory MUST READ!!!Don't look at me like I'm mad (I am but that's not the point), this is a really cool theory, bear with me!Doctor Who / Pokemon Theory MUST READ!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was thinking today, regeneration in Doctor Who and evolution in Pokemon are almost exactly the same process. They both involving a glowing light, that spreads over and through the body of the organism and moulds it into the new form, they both occur normally after physical strain from a battle or injury, and they both involve a slight change of physical form and personality, but memories stay intact. So perhaps, just maybe, pokemon are related to time lords. So, here's the crazy bit: What if pokemon where the creatures of Gallifrey, and a time lord, during the time war, used a portal in the multiverse to move them to the pokemon world, in order to save them from the upcoming death of their planet. In other words, what if pokemon are not native to the pokemon world, but originally evolved on Gallifrey?

Seriously. He's worse than cat gravity.
Yesterday's adventure was an appointment with my accountant to get my taxes done. Yes, I have an accountant. It's a necessity at this point. The 1040 was easy when all I had were W-2s to file, back when I worked "regular" jobs. Student loans were trickier, but not impossible.
However, if you're seriously self-employed, part time or full time, you want someone else to do the taxes for you. Trust me on this. Not just because the paperwork is more complicated, but if there's ever trouble with the IRS or the state, you have someone who can help back you up. Get someone who specializes in business taxes, because they can find all the various deductions for expenses, plus make sure you're doing everything legally. I wi
