I hope none of you are rabid fans of her because my least favorite character is none other than the Goth girl herself: Sam Manson.
Wait, let me rephrase that. My least favorite character is Season Three Sam.
Season One and Two Sam is by no means my personal favorite character and I often have a very mixed view on her, but she's far more tolerable. Before I bitch on about why I can't stand Season 3!Sam, I need to talk about her Season 1+2 version. Sam 1.0, you could say.
Sam is a fourteen-year-old Goth environmentalist and keen vegetarian. She is incredibly outspoken and pushy concerning her beliefs and issues - to the detriment of both her friends and everyone around her -
nobody makes art. there is just stuff.i feel the urge to publish my latest thoughts on the excessively tired topic of what is art and what isn't.nobody makes art. there is just stuff.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
i deem it as a tired topic because it doesn't fucking matter what is art and what is not.
further, i feel like most people's ideas on what art makes art is just backward.
nobody makes art.
nobody makes art.
people simply create stuff they want to create. maybe it's art in their mind.
other people who consume any sort of such creation may deem it art or not in their minds.
whatever anybody has in their mind about any such creations doesn't make nor change those creations.
a painting, photograph, sculpture or song doesn't give a flying fuck whether you consider it art or not.
it won't feel sad if you don't, and it won't change itself in an attempt to become art in your mind.
it is what it is, and that's stuff.
locations don't make art either.
there are museums and galleries that are as full of garbage as they are full of art.
there are also basements, attics and garages fill

Art Theft in an Iphone App?!So I write to you guys today with an important issue. I recently got a new phone after my old one broke and refused to turn on. Last night I was looking into customizing my new one and decided to search for free wallpapers in the app store. This is the first result I got:Art Theft in an Iphone App?!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seems great, right? A super amazing rating and a whopping 100,000 free images to choose from. What I expected to find within the app was just that...free images. I expected free to use stock photos, simple graphics, custom designs by the company itself, official, public images from tv shows and movies maybe? Perhaps that was naive of me to think, given the sheer magnitude of HQ images this app boasted to have. What I did NOT expect was that not only did it have those things, it also had stolen art pieces being offered for download with no credit or permission from artists whatsoever!
I immediately recognized several popular artists from deviantart, their images

For Halloween this year, Clive is going to take a break from writing stories for you—and read your original stories based on some of the artwork he's created.
As inspiration for your tale of horror or mystery or special wonder, Clive is providing the prompts of his own paintings that are to be your starting points.

Of course you do.
Well, here's your chance, because it's the grand prize in this contest.
As it is a physical object, the winner will need to be okay with giving out a mailing address.
Now, because literature is woefully under-appreciated, this is going to be a writing contest. Yes, you heard me, writing.
What I want to see is a story with that dreamcatcher in it. I don't care what genre you go for or how long or short the story is, but the dreamcatcher must be present in the story somewhere, somehow; anything from a brief mention to the crux of the entire plot.

Art Imitates Life Imitates Art Imitates Life...Star Trek: The Seekers was a series of faux book covers I did for a faux Star Trek spin off, set in an alternate universe where NBC execs had better sense than to pull the plug on the original show after the third season. I did the Seekers covers because I had so much fun doing revisions of all the Blish novels and wasn't quite ready to stop playing with the idea. So there they are…books one through five.

Apparently the writing team behind the landmark Star Trek: Vanguard series saw them and had the same wish… only they had a few more strings that they could pull (and talent to push) to make it happen. And next year it will! Apparently the writing team saw my covers when they were fishing around for new project ideas and it clicked with them – both the cover format and the general series tone/concept.

You drank way too much last night, it must already be midday,

the sun lashes through your window as you open your eyes...
A SNAKE! she's huge and she's got you in her coils before you have a chance to even flinch!
her tongue tickles and teases your toes as she prepares to enjoy her catch!
her coils tighten, making sure you can't move an inch as her warm salivating mouth takes in your feet,
"she's so strong" you think to yourself amongst the panic and helplessness...
she tightens her coils around your waist, pinning your arms to your side as she slides more and more of you in to her slimey maw, slowly....slowly, taking her time to enjoy her meal...
eventually your legs have completely vanished as she takes in your waist.

Working @ UbisoftNot even kidding, though my contract is only for two months so far. I was offered a unique opportunity to work alongside experts in the industry, and was recruited for concept art, illustration, and storyboarding, bouncing around to see where I might fit with my toony style. It's only been day one so far, but I'm working right alongside professionals and get to learn from them first-hand. Pretty sure I'm still reeling. Obviously I can't tell you what we're working on due to confidentiality agreements, but it's pretty cool to see all the behind-the-scenes action my own self.Working @ Ubisoft2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I began working pretty heavily on LMS during the first quarter of 2009. I had now a handful of characters, a rough idea of the story, and a general scope of what I wanted the book to be. To get started, I felt every book should have a theme. Movies do, right?
Spider-Man: Great powers, great responsibility.
Batman: Be more than just a man, a symbol, and be remembered a legend.
Star Wars: The myth of a heroes destiny, and the truth that allows him to be set free.

Jack's Dragon Girl: A Full Tour Vore Story
"Jack!" Yelled Kotsumo. "Jack, come here!" A young man ran toward him. His name was Jack, defender of Emberlog. But he prefers to be called Jack. Anyway, he ran over there and asked "What is it?" He asked, sword in hand. Kotsumo led him to a room with data tables and dragon posters. He pointed to an unusual poster of a dragon humanoid, with a marking that said Unslain Beast. "This is Kai-Shela, dragon girl. She is the greatest threat to Emberlog." Went Kotsumo. "She has to be slain before she claims anymore lives." Hearing that, Jack was eager to stain his sword with her blood. He wanted to be an actual world-renowned hero. Kai-Shela was actually an international threat, and he wanted to be the one that brings her to her knees. Once he learned her location, he set off.

2. If you are in an elite military unit, it's perfectly okay to question every single order you are given, especially in the middle of combat.
3. If the enemy is superior to you in every way except that they are ineffective in tight spaces and are not good climbers, make sure your entire civilization is built above ground on the flattest land possible.
4. The perfect time for a round of tortured internal monologues is when a split-second decision must be made.
5. Now that your engineers have perfected a revolutionary way for your infantry to fly, swing and perform incredible feats of aerial acrobatics in combat, there is absolutely no need to advance your artillery and small arms technology past black powder and flintlocks.

Yes, it's actually in stores now. I know, crazy right?
It's a property I've been working on for the past five years, and started here on DeviantArt. Thanks to the loyal fanbase of it, it was able to be turned into a book first for Heavy Metal. After, it was picked up by Paramount Pictures to be turned into a film, and now picked up by Dark Horse Comics.
I can't tell you how excited I am for you to all finally see it.
But most importantly, to the 2012 Pre-Orders, your books are on the way (TO US!) Once I receive them, I will personalize each one, and send the two signed prints as well. Thank you for your patience, it means the world to me.
To everyone else interested, here are some awesome reviews and link to the book itself.
