The End!Hello everyone!The End!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not a fan of long text posts, so I'll make this as short and sweet as I can. As I'm sure you could tell, StopPlayingLeague has really changed my life. It gave me something to do on those nights on Skype where all I hear is furious clicking. Ever since SPL, I've been introduced to a variety of summoners and all sorts of others from a bunch of different gaming communities who have really inspired me to keep going. But everything good thing comes to an end!
My boyfriend and I broke up before I even left to Germany. Not to worry, it wasn't because of his League habits haha! Though all in all, you can only imagine what weird position this puts me in, since I have a whole blog dedicated to him.
I'm not closing SPL. I feel that my comics are above me and any personal problems. They're just about a girl who loves her boyfriend. The only difference is, I wo

I'm really grateful for this opportunity, and I'll do my best to make all of our fans proud.
Wish me luck!
Well I'm back home in Massachusetts now after a long day of travel. Bruce and I got to meet with 2 people from CN, they were both really awesome and very nice, even the room we met in was chic and cool, definitely not the formal boardroom setting I was expecting.
Honestly I'm not sure if I did a good job presenting the series or not. I think they were intrigued by the action/comedy blend of the series, and liked the school setting as it's relatable to viewers. They definitely seemed interested in the fact that this series has more female fans than male fans, and that we've achieved this level of succ
Going to Armageddon Melb this weekendHiya folks. This weekend I will be going to Armageddon Melbourne. I still remember last year's Armageddon very clearly, its hard to believe its already one year. So much has happened in one year, some things has changed, some things has surprisingly went back to the way it was last year, and some things are beautiful, and yes I of course referring to my face. In fact for the upcoming 4 weeks in a roll I will be going to 4 different places for convention. Then my road warrior journey will come to an end for the year. And I will have more time to upload more drawings for you guys, as you have probably realised I havent been uploading much new things lately. Well its mostly because I have been busy with work, juggling literally 10 projects at once as well as doing some secret projects for myself. But lets hope all goes well and I wouldnt need to worry about things too much..Going to Armageddon Melb this weekend2 years ago in Personal More Like This

It was only after many long frustrating hours of trying to describe what’s so special about the photographs of cweeks...
That I finally realized I was trying to describe something that wasn’t there.
I finally realized that the magical something that sets cweeks’ works apart from others is that his camera disappears. There is no sense as you look at his photos of street scenes and other captures that you are looking through a lens, even the lens of a particularly talented photographer. There is a sense of simply walking through a town and seeing what you happen to see – without the

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.

I have to abandon my Heidi. The cat who kept me from killing myself for over a year.
EDIT: I've been contacted by some very sweet members of the local trans community who want to help Heidi. She's going to a temporary home for a couple weeks and then someone in the team will take her home with them. I'll be sure that we communicate and that she's doing well. They'll come to pick her up from the airport in a couple hours.
Yes, there are transport companies, but they are INSANE expensive; The alternative is booking another flights, which I can't do because I'm out of money.
