Disqordilicious.So... wow... My inbox has been exploding all week. I've been completely floored by the response to my little graphic story about Disqord.Disqordilicious.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've gotten so many wonderful, beautiful, comments! I read them all, even if I do not respond to each one. I am so moved that so many people found my little story so interesting! Really, it makes me all glowy to know that I was able to hit the artistic nail on the head. Nothing is more satisfying to an artist than knowing that their work "got to people".
Many of you understood exactly what I was aiming for, and that makes me happiest of all!
Knowing that I was able to communicate my artistic vision (with a fan comic!) feels so triumphant. As I posted each page, I would read the comments and keep them in mind when painting the next page... I would put extra effort into emphasizing certain points and ideas of mine to help better communicate them. Really, all of your comments truly helped me to hone my idea and inspire me to keep up with the work. So th

Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus. Once in a while someone will mention Off Road (an OGN I did with Oni back in 2004), but for the most part it seems like I've been published only these last few years when in fact I've been published professionally for a decade now.Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de

Okay, so first...I survived the semester from hell! The bad news is that my university TREMENDOUSLY shortened winter break and I have to go back to school next week. T_T But hopefully this semester won't be as busy as last semester.
Next, ValdaValsha and I did a tribute to Rin and Len's birthday today on tumblr. It's full of derping. Go check it out. XD http://valdaabyss.tumblr.com/post/14895382226/extreme-kagamine-party
And finally, Taiyou Con is coming up! Here's the line-up for this year:
Friday: Cantarella Len
Saturday: Undertaker and America
Undertaker is for the Black Butler cafe! If you happen to be going to Taiyou Con, please stop by the cafe as well! Get your tickets here! http://www.teamkissu.com/
And America is for our masquerade skit that evening. Yes, a Hetalia skit. And yes, it will be full of crack.

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

Oh by the way, I'm going to start making Daughter of Evil. OztheNekoMaster and I made our own designs for this to satisfy our taste instead of basing the cosplays off of one of the many fanarts. And I need to start early because it will probably be my most expensive cosplay so far that I will have done for Anime Expo. I might post progress pictures on Tumblr if anyone really wants to see them. All I can say is that it's going to be very detailed and elaborate. XD

about the guy who designed it [bio from wikipedia] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Jackson_(USA)
Steve Jackson (born c. 1953) is an American game designer. After working for many years at Metagaming Concepts designing such games as Ogre and The Fantasy Trip, he left to found Steve Jackson Games (SJ Games) in the early 1980s. He designed many of the games published by SJ Games, such as Car Wars, GURPS, Munchkin and many others.
He is not some super top secret agent or anything. I am sure the guy who made the game had insider knowledge though.
Anyone who studies history or knows how the world works could make this game. But there are a few eerie examples of events drawn on some of the cards,, like the World Trade Center being hit with an airplane, as well as the pentagon being also hit with an airplane, it looks more like a bomb.

Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

Robert shot an action-packed short film called Two Scoops, starring twins Lola and Lucia who operate an ice cream truck by day and happen to also be monster-slayers. Fans contributed to the project by submitting films, Tweeting their ideas for super-weapons, creating the fiercest monsters, and sending in their photos to appear on Missing Person posters.
We're excited to announce that the collaboration is now complete! You can see the finished film right here, along with the best contributions from fans, and documentary footage to tell the story of the project.

First off, I think that what happened regarding this issue highlighted the BEST of our industry. I'm thrilled with the results, although I don't find Marvel's statement reassuring (more on that later). When we learned that Marvel was pursuing the $17,000 from Friedrich, we came together as concerned professionals and fans and managed to affect the situation. Even though we disagreed, at least we weighed out the options. And we even came together to set up funding to help out Friedrich.

RIP Monty OumI know this is a bit late considering his date of passing. I've been so detached from the animation scene that it takes a long time for word to spread to me. In any case, a friend of mine brought to my attention that Monty Oum, famed for his Haloid and Dead Fantasy series passed away on the 1st of February. Aged 33.RIP Monty Oum2 months ago in Personal More Like This
This just..... deeply shocks and saddens me. That such a talented individual would pass at such a young age. Also, I feel his death is a little more personal to me. Believe it or not, around 7 or 8 years ago while I was still going by my Alvin-Earthworm persona, Monty contacted me directly through a PM telling me how my SMBZ series was what inspired him to take up animation. Sadly the PM's have been lost through the annals of time. But my old DeviantArt account was listed in the credits of Haloid. [link]
Granted he was far more talented in the field than I could ever hope to be, I still can't believe my fan series was one of
