London HQ Devmeet: The taleWhat do you get when you have 500 stress balls, the unpredictability of the Great British weather and a large park in the middle of London? A HQ devmeet of course!London HQ Devmeet: The tale3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
500 emoticon stress balls, 10 plushies and 500 sharpie pens is a lot of stuff to carry to London from Derby, but is worth it!
Being late for breakfast means you can politely steal Heidi’s toast to have with your cup of tea.
If you arrive 10 mins late to a very large devmeet, expect a huge crowd of people already there.
Some people do dress up in full cosplay. It is fascinating. I counted 3 Dinosuar type things, a fox person, lots of hats and “ears”, at leat 2 pikachus, a Mexican wrestler, and some very short skirts!
Giving out free balls/stickers/lanyards/pens etc to lots of people makes you feel a little like a seller at a sports event! Or a primary school teacher!
Prometheus concept art...I worked on "Prometheus" as a concept artist, and now that the movie is out I can show some of the images.Prometheus concept art...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will eventually post stuff here on DA, but I felt the format of my blog lent itself better to an overview of the process, and to acknowledge some of the others involved. So I decided to begin with that out of consideration to the talented people I feel privileged to have worked with!
Feel free to have a look: http://steveburg.blogspot.com/
There is an "Art of" book, which I just got - and it's quite nice! But it contains only a fraction of the art generated for the project by myself and the other artists on the team.
I worked with a small group here in the US that included Steven Messing, David Levy, Ben Procter, Carlos Huante, Neville Page & Daniel Simon. And there are other artists who worked over in the UK when the film went into full production. So you can imagine quite a lot of artwork was generated!

As many of you will remember from last year’s festivities, August 13th is a very special day for lefties everywhere! Left Handers’ Day is a day where we can all get together freely and talk about our scissor preferences, smudged writing and how many times we’ve been heard: “Hey! Are you left handed?”.
Of course, we can do that any day. But on the 13th of August we have an awesome excuse. And once again, we’re providing you with the perfect excuse to put on that thinking cap and grab your art supplies to create something awesome for the LHA 2012 contest!
There are two sides to every coin: good and evil, day and night, law and chaos, left and right. This year’s theme is all about opposites, however you want to interpret them! Your piece can include any and all opposites, limited to only your imagination. It doesn’t have to relate to left-handedness, but just contrasting themes and o

I found that some blog posters (including myself) have seen the chapters of Arise in full. I have decided NOT to post any blogs that will have been released because of spoilers. If anybody wants to read the reviews or watch the episodes themselves, it is easy to find. Once the series is released in the US, I will probably post a journal asking what fans opinions.

Roses are grey, violets are also grey...What I am about to share with you is perhaps the most universally interesting conversation topic that I have to offer: my red-green colour blindness. I've only just realised that 'colour blind' is two words, thanks to a Wikipedia article being open in the next tab. My life so far has been a lie.Roses are grey, violets are also grey...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll start by dispelling a misconception: not all colour blind people see in black and white. (Admittedly my misleading title isn't helping the cause.) This is only the case for very very few people, and so far I haven't met anyone with monochrome vision. The truth is that the majority of colour blind people simply have difficulties telling the difference between some (but not all) colours.
Right, onto the interesting part! The subtitle is doubly suitable here, since the term 'red-green colour blindness' does not just mean red and green. Makes it even more difficult to explain, huh? Speaking from my own experience, there's very

Who knows when you're going to hit the zeitgeist, and suddenly your world changes in way you could never predict?
I was 20 years old and messing up everything in a monumental way. I'd had my heart broken, failed to stay focused on work, and run up a ton of debts. I was drinking Falstaffian quantities, and doing pretty much all I could to avoid facing into my own reality. My electricity was cut off, then my phone. Instead of collecting rent from my lodger I got drunk with him on a fairly nightly basis.
I needed to face it - I was a mess.
I returned to London aged 21 with a ten pound note in my pocket and a dear friend prepared to put me up while I got back on my feet. Brian West was a cartoonist and writer then, and together we tried numerous things to bring in money and put beer and food in our bellies. We spent our weekends getting up at 4.30am to secure a slot at Campden Market where we drew caricatures. We planned magical comedy skits f

The unkindness of natureHi Everyone, going to be doing a bit of a lengthy Journal on this one.The unkindness of nature3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nature can be so cruel sometimes. We've all seen this and in the back of our minds we know it, but don't really pay attention to it till it happens right in your front yard. Yesterday a little baby bird of some kind fell out of our cherry tree in our front yard. The mother hadn't anchored the nest well enough to stand up to the windy day yesterday. I noticed when I saw these two lumps on the grass. Upon further inspection the mother bird that was guarding its chick on the ground flew away, but not too far, and I realized what had happened. I did my best to remedy the situation so that the mother could take back over. I picked up the nest, which was just a bunch of dry twigs bundled together and nestled it in the tree where the smaller trunks meet the main large trunk. Then gently scooped up the baby bird and placed it in the nest. It stayed there through the night. I got up this morning and checked and it had either
Let's go on a diet togetherSee Shadow up there? Flat belly, ja.Let's go on a diet together4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyways, allow me to explain to you all a very effective weight loss routine.
You're tired of looking at your belly in the mirror; it's jiggly, round, ugly...at least, that is what one would think of himself.
How would you go about losing this weight as quick as possible? Well there's always some way--
Eat less and exercise more.
Oh, haven't we heard that a few thousand times? Ja.
Let's see if we can work something out of that...How about we cut down 500 calories a day in what we consume? How about we drink eight cups of water throughout the day? And how about we throw away the sugary cereals and treats in the cabinets?
That sounds like a lovely idea.
If you cut down 500 calories per day, that's 3500 calories a week. Thirty-five hundred calories = 1 pound of fat
Drinking 64 fluid ounces of water a day will help raise metabolism, as well as the consumption of foods such as lean meats, green leafy vegetables, steel cut oats

Important News on the MLP ComicIt looks to be pretty official, according to our editor, that the MLP comic has been pushed back two weeks to Nov 28 for street release date.Important News on the MLP Comic3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before anybody gets upset (like one jerk on Twitter did), keep in mind the scope of this production: This is not a fanmade comic as some seem to think it is: This is a fully licensed comic book from a major Comic publisher done in cooperation with Hasbro. It is also one of the most highly anticipated comics for the entire fall/winter schedule. As such, we'd rather do it well than do it fast.
The orders for this book have far exceeded what was first anticipated, so a little more padding in the schedule is going to help to ensure the product can meet the demand
I also want to remind everyone: I am NOT The distributor/publisher... I just draw it. You cannot purchase the book directly from me. Here's some ground I've covered a number of times, but I keep getting asked... so here we go:
