The Paper Chain Projectschongslipper sent us a message telling us about a project that could work in conjunction with The Butterfly Project. It is called The Paper Chain Project, and here are the rules:The Paper Chain Project2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. For every day you go without self harming, add a colourful link to the paper chain.
2. If you relapse, just add a white link to to the chain and carry on the chain without any disruption.
3. Over time the paper chain will grow in length.
4. And you can see your progress, and see that even if you do relapse, the are still days you go without hurting yourself. The colourful links.
5. Over time and through your recovery watch the amount of coloured links begin to increase, and the amount of white links begin to decrease.
6. If you feel like hurting yourself, look at the paper chain and realise just how far you've made it, and realise that if you've resisted before you can do it again.
It is another great idea to help deal with self-injury. I hope some of you will give it a shot and I hope it helps you. &

Children's Literature, Morality + Changing IdealsIntroductionChildren's Literature, Morality + Changing Ideals2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
With the invention of the printing press in the fifteenth century, and its gradual integration into society, people at last had access to literature. It was William Caxton who first saw the opportunity to make money by printing and selling those stories and fables hitherto told by word of mouth.
At this time, literature did not have age-specific target audiences. Inevitably, some stories appealed to children more than others. Robin Hood was especially popular, while Aesop’s fables offered entertainment and life lessons to adults and children alike.
It is, of course, impossible to say exactly when and how literature was identified as a useful tool in teaching morality to children. It is speculated that there was no concept of ‘childhood’ before the eighteenth century, although historians debate this, as historians are apt to do.

SAVE THE ELEPHANTS: As many of you already know, I recently returned from a month in Thailand where I helped give veterinary care to rescued Asian elephants at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai. Below is one of the elephants we worked with daily - an older female called Mae Tee.
Before she was rescued, Mae Tee worked for two owners who used her for illegal logging. The first owner worked Mae Tee throughout the day and the second drugged her and continued working her through the night. As a result, Mae Tee has problems with deteriorated joints along with foot rot and ulcers on her feet. Although she currently receives treatment from veterinary volunteers at the park, the veterinary wraps used to cover Mae Tee's rear feet are costly and need to be replaced twice a day in order to keep her feet dry and clean.

Street Painting Chalk Art | Pastel and Chalk GuideStreet Painting Chalk Art Pastel and Chalk GuideStreet Painting Chalk Art | Pastel and Chalk Guide2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I started street painting I relied heavily by the recommendations of other artists of what products to use. I really didn't find a whole lot of information in the beginning, and I soon discovered that not all Chalk/Pastels are created equally. This is a good thing because depending on what kind of surface you are working on will call for different grade of product. And learning what's best to use is just trial and error. Not only that, but artists have different styles and methods they like to use and the products will always reflect that. I'm only 3 years into working with this medium and admittedly so I'm still very much learning, but I figured I would take a stab at writing down an "Art Pastel and Chalk Guide" to help any beginners out there.
Keep in mind I live in the USA, so I'm going to be linking to stores and products I know of in the US. But I'm sure these can be found in your area as well in

One of those 'Existential' DaysI very rarely just...feel like writing a journal on DA. My journals are all about commissions, or art theft, or advertising, pretty much. I keep most of my life to myself, because my 3,000+ watchers have better things to read about or do than listen to me ramble. But I've had a bad day that has petered out into one of those 'deep thought' sorts of days and I just feel like sharing bits of my life.

To start with, I've lost a golden job opportunity. In late June, I applied at my favorite candle store, and they interviewed me. They liked me enough to call me back for a second interview, which hasn't happened to me since I got my first/only job a couple years ago. I thought I had it in the bag, then...after the second interview, they said they'd call me back in a week. Well, they didn't, so I called them in a week instead. They put me off another week. This happened three times, three or four weeks. Most people would have stopped by then, but each time I called, the man

- I prefere to exchange ACEO cards.
- I reserve the right to decline any requests that I feel they won't suit me or it's not my cup of tea to draw.
- Pictures I draw for you are only for your personal use, not commercial use!
- I reserve the right to use my part of trade in future artbooks.

- For realistic drawing I need high quality photo.
- Please, no beginners using bases and so, I prefere intermediate artists with own style and own ideas.
- If you are asking me for a trade, you have to be my watcher. I have no idea why should I do trade with anyone who doesn't like my art enough to watch me. In case that I ask you about a trade, you don't have to be my watcher ^__~

CONTEST! The Same Name Game +Bonus Points UpdateAlright guys, the contest is over! Thanks for all the awesome entries! I'll judge them and decide a winner soon.CONTEST! The Same Name Game +Bonus Points Update2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So, I was
running barefoot through the wilderness admiring hot dudeswatering flowers and thinking about anime characters when suddenly... BAM! I was struck forcefully in the head by an idea for a contest with a rhyming name!
Welcome to the SAME NAME GAME!
Using my mystical otaku/gamer powers, I discovered that many anime characters share names. And are often quite different from each other. Which is funny when you end up with a good-looking serious vampire guy sharing his name with a cute pink magical little girl.
Draw two or more characters together that share their name!
No OCs! This is a fanart contest! The characters can be from anime, video games, manga, movies, or random things like Vocaloid.
Two or more characters per entry. It kind of defeats the purpose if you only dra
About costume swaphttp://godohelp.deviantart.com/gallery/45764264About costume swap1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I did not notice until I am told, but it seems my works had a tremendous amount of response on tumblr. I would've never imagined. I'm wondering whether I should be glad or become nervous. lol
But thank you for your watching my works!
Now, I finished drawing this series except the characters in the movies which I have never seen.
I draw pictures for my own enjoyment, so I cannot draw what is outside my field. I love girls so much.
I'm frequently asked:
-Do you draw men in women's clothes?
I don't intend to draw costume swap guys at all.
-Do you do villains or nonhuman characters?
I don't do it as well.
-Do you do Wendy, Tinker Belle or other human girls?
At the moment, I can't do them because I haven't watched the movies they appear on. If I watch the rest of the movies in the future, then I may start drawing again.
-How do you decide what they wear?
The selection of clothes is whether it suits her, and wh

Does it happen to you too? I mean, smelling a very special smell/perfume that sends you immediatly in your childhood for example? Sometimes you've forgotten them, you think they don't exist anymore, you can't even think of them even if you wanted too.
Here's an example: It happened to me once in the metro. A man, with a bad breath, actually, it was the smell of someone who smokes the pipe. But I had this particular feeling that it was positive. I was even staarting to like this special... smell O_o. Then I remembered. This guy who came at school to play guitar and make us sing when I was 3. The very same smell. O_O I had forgotten him but with this particular (bad) smell, I've even remembered a full song he used to sing!
What a beautiful thing. Your nose I mean!
Some minutes ago, here @ Ubisoft, it smelled a very specific kind of vanilla. It smelled exactly like the ess

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital bacause they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken awat from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a come for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high

Colouring Book Pre-orders OPEN [UPDATE]Colouring book Pre-orders openColouring Book Pre-orders OPEN [UPDATE]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
UPDATE: 03/03/2011: Hi all and thanks for all of your patience~! I have a bit of news of the colouring book that isn't necessarily bad, I just need to change it a bit.
The tutorial that was to be included within the book is now being included as a pamphlet, rather than pages in the book. The tutorial is still in full colour and the same size as the book as originally planned, so you're getting exactly what you paid for, it just isn't stapled within the book pages.
The reason for this is because when I get a colour book printed, for example, say I have a 60 colour book and only 5 pages of colour and the rest are in black and white. Even if only 5 pages are in colour, I still have to pay for a 60 page full colour book. And that is *very* pricey.
I hope this is not too much of an inconvenience to everyone.
The books will be sent out by the 10th hopefully! Thank you everyone!
UPDATE 19/02/2012: Thank you everyone for your support so far!! I will be tak
