HK Dollism Plus 8 ReportBut I have a bit of idle time at work so I decided to update.HK Dollism Plus 8 Report2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not to mention I wanted to get that negative journal off my profile page.
How is everyone? 8D I'm doing alright. Work is work. Dollwise, I've been getting ready for ManikaManila Tiangge, my local doll community's annual BJD bazaar. There's much to be done so I hope it all goes smoothly!
Anyway, I know I promised a Dollism report. I don't think I've ever done one here. It's usually on my LJ and Facebook accounts.
So here I go!
We lived along Tung Choi street in the heart of Mong Kok. My friends and I usually go for an apartment rather than a hotel, to cut costs and to experience life as a local.
Not to mention it is tons of fun living with your friends for almost a week! We arrived on Thursday, July 11th. We mostly roamed around Mong Kok that day.
Tung Choi is right beside Sai Yeung Choi St. which is home to several doll

We have all tried staring into empty space. To be entirely blank. Often it is relaxing to stare, I myself call it "autopilot", to be without doing, but we know that is not always enough. Or at least not for all of us.
No doubt you have a friend or cousin that sometimes stares. But they aren't staring like most people do. They stare with an entirely different look on their face, they look thoughtful even worried.

I am bringing your attention to a documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, that
deeply inspired me after a screening last week. The life wisdom and positive
philosophy unfolding over a lifetime of living as an artist was deeply motivating.
I invited Wayne White, the subject of this documentary, to join deviantART afterwards.
I thought this would be something you would enjoy no matter where you might be at
on your own personal journey as an artist. While watching this I was also reminded
of the heartfelt explanations by many artists of what it means to choose the life of an Artist.
"Do what you love, It's going to lead where you want to go."
Please stop and say hello and welcome seewaynewhite in his first week at deviantART.

Hi Everyone! I am back and I got married while I was gone!
Everything went off without a hitch and I had the time of my life! I got married in Las Vegas and just arrived back yesterday. I got married in the chapel at the Paris Casino & Resort and then had my reception at a place called Wellington Place. Everything was gorgeous and it seems like everyone had a great time, which is all we really wanted.
We aren't doing our honeymoon yet, but after some research, planning and review of finances, we have decided to honeymoon in Japan in late April. We'll be visiting Tokyo, Kyoto and Hakone and will be there for 8 days. We are officially booking it sometime in the next week or two. So excited!

PSA about taxes for artists and their businessesNote: This is for US artists, as it deals with US law and tax requirements. Can’t speak for int’l artists. I am speaking as a businessperson, not a lawyer. Contact your local tax preparer for questions about your individual scenario.PSA about taxes for artists and their businesses2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You are a US artist.
You run a business selling your artwork and products made from it - like prints, charms, that kind of nice con stuff. Your “expenses" are the cost to produce your product: the money you pay to the person or company who creates your products so you can sell them in your shop or at a con. Your "profit" is the difference between the sell price and your cost.
Let’s say that it costs you $1 to produce a print, and you sell it for $5. Your profit is $4. Because you have organized your art as a business, you take that $1 as an expense and pay taxes on the $4 profit, whatever that tax amount might be (in the simplest terms). If y

On Hacking and Tracing (hiding on DA)On Hacking and Tracing (hiding on DA)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
FOR ANYONE WHO'S READING THIS A BIT LATE
This all happened about five to six months ago. Obsessing about this would be just silly, on either side. If you managed to find your way here by now and would still like to know what happened, I'll give you a quick summary.
There USED to be a BHB journal explaining everything that happened , but DA recently banned a bunch of groups for whatever fucking reason. Anyways, it turned out that Rai (Nincianda) was Kas all along and wasn't actually 13 and had been banned from DA I believe at least 10 times already? Anyways, she was caught and flipped the fuck out. Aisha was caught tracing and left DA forever, but she still uses tumblr.
Nincianda ended up being someone who drew badly but found out people thought it was cute for a 12/13 year old. She also ran around telling people crazy stories about how she was abused and other shit, but when

What specific references were you looking at while designing Jasmine's costume?
Racinet's plates were a primary source of inspiration: http://www.costumes.org/HISTORY/100pages/books/racinet/orient.htm , along with paging through sites about Persian miniature painting and middle eastern clothing terminology. Searching for this sort of information becomes a lot easier when you have some vague idea of what you're looking for.

Life got really tough for my friend recently, and this is probably the last chance to help her small family. This girl means the world to me, and I'm trying my best to help her, but since I'm far away from them, I'm pretty powerless alone. Which is why I really, really need your help right now.
My friend and her mom live in Luhansk, Ukraine. Not so long ago a serious war begun there, putting their lives in danger. Now there's no water, no gas and no electricity in most parts of their city, half of the city is damaged and obviously it's not safe to stay there. The family went to Kharkov for a week, but now they can't stay there any longer as well yet can't go anywhere, 'cause the mother lost her job, and now they've almost ran out of money. They need to pay the bills, pay for their accommodation and transport, urgently repay the debts and simply some money for their basic daily needs, after all, and they don't have any - nor the opportunity to earn s
