Food. Polymer clay food. There's a strange fascination between polymer clay crafters to make food, if you ask many of us won't even be able to explain what's so addictive about making fake food. Some of it is crafted for doll houses and doll props, some people make beautiful jewelry with food, but some just make it because it's so incredibly fun.

Types of Artist blues, what helped, what didn'tThere are several artist blues I know of, since I have experienced practically all of them during the past few months since 2011. I will write about how I got them, how I overcome them. What helped, what didn't.Types of Artist blues, what helped, what didn't2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some of these blues are professional freelance blues, happens to those who are making their own series/productions and when there's money and risk involved.
Some of these blues are shared by all artists.
Before the production even starts, the fear of it failing caused me to think about failing instead of success. It makes me hesitate about actually working on the project before I even produce anything.
What helped- Refocus on what I am making the project for, what's the true message I try to convey with the project, make that shine, and try to choose a cheap launch platform that makes it cost-effective.
What didn't help- trying to level up on art skill. It helped with my overall art as work for hire, it didn't help with
GIVEAWAY! Win things~ ONE DAY LEFT!I didn't want to make a new journal to announce this and bump the giveaway off my page, but!GIVEAWAY! Win things~ ONE DAY LEFT!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just wanted to make a quick announcement! The USPS (what I use to send all packages) recently raised the price of United States first class parcels as well as Delivery Confirmation. To reflect this change, I unfortunately have the raise the price of United States shipping from $2.80 to $3.00. I hope you all understand this change! I do everything I can to keep shipping costs low, but this particular change is out of my control. International price will stay the same at $3.50 per package, as it doesn't come with delivery confirmation and is unaffected by this change.
Thank you for your understanding! ♥ Shipping costs will change on the website and Etsy, so there's nothing you as the buyer need to do, except shake your fist at your local post office. ;D
^^^ just to clarify, this has nothing to do with the giveaway. winner doesn't pay shipping costs--this applies just to normal o

Thank you, DA community <3you might think "what's this all of a sudden ? "Thank you, DA community <32 years ago in Personal More Like This
but I truly, deeply thank each and everyone of you
because of you people, I feel appreciated
your motivating comments, favoriting my works, and always looking forward to my new drawings.. These all mean a whole LOT to me
because of you, I keep drawing, and feel motivated, and continue improving.
In real life, no one appreciated my talent (excluding family and my close people ofc). I have participated in several contests. I have sent drawings to magazines and children TV channels and such, but never got appreciated, no one cared.
however, when I came to DA, I got the appreciation I was always looking for.
so I just want to really really thank you, from the bottoms of my heart.
Thank you for always motivating me to draw, thank you for giving me the care.
and thank you for giving me the chance I never got
you are the reason I keep on going :iconsweethugplz:
sorry if this sounded somehow dramatic, but that's how I truly feel :icon

What you can do if a big company stole your art An indy artist's work being used by Disney without permission: http://katiewoodger.tumblr.com/post/47454350768/disney-have-stolen-my-artwork-i-dont-know-whatWhat you can do if a big company stole your art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My tumblr reply: http://mayshing.tumblr.com/post/47627305546/katiewoodger-disney-have-stolen-my-artwork-i
PS: this one is on the verge being settled, Disney already started working on it, she's being helped.
Seeing posts like this, I just thought I should share some knowledge I have, I personally already have met 3 different artists who doesn't know what to do when:
Record company ripped them off
Publisher ripped them off
Big corporation used their artwork without permission (that's usually by accident because of an outsource company broke the rule etc)

For those of you that don't know, I drive around in a truck and install cable for a living now. And when I have to piss, I'm going to find the closes restaurant and piss. And when I strut into Micke D's without my wallet, the employees just glare and me. And I'm like 'Bitch, you work minimum wage at a multi-BILLION dollar franchise. I'mma go pee in your toilets without buying anything. And I'm also going to take a fist full of napkins and condiments, so there.'
Old people! For the love of god, if you can figure out how to download your online checker/bingo games, you can figure out how to work the 'new' remote I'm giving you.
People who pass me on the highway while flipping me off for driving slow. Bitch, have you seen this truck? Do you think it can make it over 60 without falling apart? No. (Also, I have a beacon on it, and I turn it on when I'm about to do stupid shit or cut people
Something for AutismEveryone here is probably familiar with my tutorial Emotions and Facial Expressions, but I've been amazed along the years at the number of people who work with autism who have shown interest in it. I never dreamed, when I made it, that it could be considered useful for people who otherwise can't read facial expressions. I was recently asked if I had a way of making it available in a convenient format that could be handed out. There's no online leaflet-printing service that is cheap enough I'm afraid, but I gave it some thought and came up with this:Something for Autism3 years ago in Personal More Like This
