In questi giorni tv, radio e giornali hanno riscoperto che si avvicinava il 20° anniversario della strage di Capaci.
Tutti in questi giorni, insolitamente, si prodigano nel ricordarcelo: presunti giornalisti, artisti, e sopratutto politici.
affiancarsi all'immagine di uomini come Giovanni Falcone e Paolo Borsellino fa molto comodo,
sopratutto in un momento come quello attuale, in cui è forte il bisogno di ripulirsi dalle escrescenze
del sudiciume interiore per riciclarsi, per dirsi onesti, puliti, per dirsi impegnati....
Un teatrino che mai come quest'anno si allarga a tanti, troppi figuranti
che non hanno paura di esibire sempre la stessa maschera di falsità.
Un teatrino a tema fisso: commemorare la morte.
Ecco, è per questo che voglio scrivere qui,
perché possiamo ricordarlo tutti che oggi non si celebra la morte

Authentic CitizenshipOnce Again, The Room Fell Away. The prodigious artistic and cultural exchange that we have all committed ourselves to building, to participating in and to sharing with each other every day at deviantART often occurs in RL on the decks of HQ as well. One of the best aspects of being in my position here at deviantART is the privilege to curate salons with artists of every medium and success level imaginable, art appreciators, writers, and educators from all points of light within the deviantART community inviting them to make the trek to HQ for what always manifests as an inspiring, thoughtful, educative, and enlightening dialogue. But sometimes, sometimes, things rise to a whole other level. You suddenly find yourself magically reaching that special deviantART "destination" that is a connection point of art, life, community and communication that has no specific Office # designation.

Picasso seeing a seven as an upside down nose?
Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

No better living functioning evolving example of the new pattern in the creation, dissemination and education in the visual arts can be found than Imaginism Studios, the online brainchild of artists Bobby Chiu & Kei Acedera. Established in Toronto in 2005, the studio has specialized in pre-production character and concept design for film, TV, gaming, and publishing. As creators of some of the most wildly creative and whimsical images ever presented on deviantART, this artistic couple has built an international fan base independent of their contracted projects.

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

Minecraft Snapshot 12w17a - BOOKS!I haven't been keeping up with the various Minecraft updates recently. After 1.2 was released I suddenly found myself without much time to play. But recently since I've gotten back into playing Minecraft because a friend of mine wanted me to play on their server, I've been more keen to see what I've missed.Minecraft Snapshot 12w17a - BOOKS!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is the most recent "snapshot" of the game and it's a BIG deal. You can now write in BOOKS! It's super easy to do too. Just take a book, an ink sac, and a feather and put them all in the crafting table. It creates a "book and quill." While holding the book and quill, if you right click it opens up a txt screen you can fill in with whatever you want!
You can write up to 50 pages of text and edit at your will. When you've got the book where you want it to be you can finish it by clicking the SIGN button. When you do this you'll be asked to give it a title. After that, it's done! No one can edit your book and you can re-read it any time you want!

"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 t

Also, everyone wear green hoodies tomorrow. I'm doing it.
And drink lots of Coke in Edd's honor.
Well, I was having a pretty good day so far until I learn of Edd's untimely passing.
I followed Eddsworld since 2008, and his artwork and animations highly inspired me to create my own series "Parker Lot". I drew lots of art for Edd and I watched all of his animations and followed his Livestreams. I even bought his book and one of his posters. I never got the chance to meet this cartoon legend and I'm very sad to say I'll never get to meet him.
Basically, I really wouldn't be online if it weren't for Edd and I am grateful for ever knowing such an amazing cartoonist, innovator, animator, and legend.
Rest in peace, Edd, you'll be missed by so many.
You may expect a fan art for him by me soon.
