Spoonflower is a website where you can upload and print your design on a fabric of your choice. I was VERY impressed by the quality of this service O_O And for the perfect fabric, well.. it's cheap!
For a personnal use, I've started to reproduce (adding some little changes because of copyrights problems ) but I was wondering if some of you would maybe want to commission me a fabric design so I can upload it and make it available for you on spoonflower? It's not easy to make a pattern loop correctly but it's quite funny to make
Here are some example of what I've already done:
Controversial OpinionsYou know, sometimes having opinions can make you feel like no one else shares your views, especially if your views aren't being widely vocalized around you. Case in point: It's just been announced that J.J.Abrams will be directing Star Wars 7, and the internet is raging with butthurt about how shitty Abrams is, making over abundant lens flare jokes, and bemoaning the reboot of Star Trek in the process.Controversial Opinions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thing is... I like J.J.Abrams. I liked LOST (despite it's shitty/rushed ending). I liked Super 8. I liked Cloverfield. I even enjoyed the recent Star Trek reboot and am looking forward to the sequel. I never had a problem with lens flares or noticed them being over used. And I think overall Abrams has made a fairly consistent batch of quality movies, which is a amazing considering how many directors flip flop between great and shitty.
But I can't often come right out and say that sort of thing because when I do I get attacked for having an opinion that runs counter to the vast majority o

On August 25, 2012, Kojima Productions Podcast member Ken Mendoza and Chris Johns, his sidekick, revealed that Metal Gear series' 25th Anniversary announcement will "shake up" the video game industry.
Kojima tweeted an image of the set up of the stage of the 25th Anniversary Event on August 29, with the Metal Gear Solid Facebook page later posting the image contained in his tweet on 5:15 PM the same day. In addition, Kojima also planned to do autographs of limited edition posters relating to the 25th Anniversary event at the PAX event on September 1, which the Facebook page announced on August 28 at 3:42 PM.
They eventually showed a teaser and demo for the game. Several comments from the demo posted on twitter also hint that the crawling mechanic returns after its absence in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. In additi

Missing the PointI've been noticing a trend lately where people seem to deliberately be missing the point behind stuff in order to complain. I used to think it was just me, as I watched people write up lengthy articles nitpicking and "debunking" a comic I made because they simply missed the point, but I've started seeing it happening to other people too.Missing the Point3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently over on The Oatmeal, artist Matthew Inman made a joke about guy gamers vs girl gamers. The joke was pretty simple: A guy gamer makes a mistake and gets bitched out by his fellow teammates online. Contrast to that, a girl gamer makes a mistake and her fellow teammates try to comfort her, tell her she's doing great, and make suggestive comments about hooking up. To me the joke was clear, guys treat girls differently online. However, that's not how the rest of the internet saw it...
From what I've read of the whole Oatmeal flare up, the reasons for the hate seem grounded in the fact he depicted the girl as blond and bubbly (ie: stupid) and not as

The report Watari handed him silently on the morning of January 21st, 2004 read simply: Beyond Birthday heart attack. After several minutes of staring at the neatly printed words, L lowered the report onto his desk, slowly, before shifting his focus to the young man sitting a mere six feet away.
Light glanced away from his computer monitor and caught Ls gaze, offering one of those kindhearted smiles that L had trouble deciding whether or not were fake. L closed his teeth around the pad of his thumb and quickly looked away, a dozen new thoughts rushing through his mind all related to one central theory.
Prompt 1 -- Beginnings
In the beginning, there was only darkness; blissful darkness, perfect darkness darkness not unlike the beautiful black void of his eyes. His. The one he would one day try to mimic and even strive surpass.
Artist Intent vs Fan CriticismsThis has been a subject I've been interested in for years, and one which I personally struggle with on a near constant basis: Artist's intent versus fan criticisms. Before we begin I just want to make this clear that this journal is NOT about "ignoring criticisms" or any sort of endorsement of such an action. I'm gonna be accused of it, of course, but I just wanted to get that out of the way right now.Artist Intent vs Fan Criticisms2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I've been observing fan interactions over the years I've noticed a severe increase in a sense of entitlement: IE: that if you love something enough you have a "right" to force the creators to change their content to suit your personal preferences. We saw this play out to the extremes this past summer with the Mass Effect 3 ending debacle, and we see it play out to a much lesser extent here on DA quite a bit.
Artists need feedback and criticisms to grow and improve their work, but at what point does it move beyond offering suggestions to help an artist improve to outright de

Sometimes I wonder: does he really think we're here? In his mind, we are nothing but a fabrication. For him, that is nothing but a reality. And he's happy there. Nevertheless, we are in our reality. For him, there is nothing but pain in this world. What will we have to do to pull him back?
"It looks kinda like milk."
Laura's face stretched into a smile. She began to laugh as her bright, enamel-white teeth peeked from behind her small lips. The town was shrouded in a thick fog that blurred everything into white, as if she were in some sort of magical land. Sometimes Laura liked to think that some scatterbrained god had carelessly dropped his cup and spilled his morning milk all over the place. The mysterious atmosphere could be a sign that there were fai

Most people join deviantart because they have some sort of artistic skill to share with the world, and find other people with similar interests and skills. Same thing happens when you go to college for your specific trade. Everyone you meet there does the same thing you do. Spending a number of years in college and on websites devart and tumblr can leave the impression that all of your peers are just like you. You make a lot of friends with the same talent.

The journal of Dr. Seth Michael "Victor von" Vandenburg, November 2012, Thanksgiving: It's been three quarters of a year ago since I have joined the Mecha Mental Hospital. It was a decent job, helping patients through their problems, listening to their stories… Thus far, I've only had seven patients that recovered with flying colors, probably because they just needed someone to talk to. These problems were never serious, so it was an easy job. At least, I used to think that.
I used to think that, until I had my eighth patient. This patient's name was Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Looking at the patient's record, this wasn't the first time it went to doctors for help. Yet the results were too diverse to even get a clear answer and the methods were sometimes… unsettling, as if detail and analysis were, for lack of a better term, foreign. It also came to my attention that some of these doctors would attempt to use forms of therapy that would rob the patient of its will, its original bei

It's the quiet ones you have to watch out for:
the ones who sit in class, doodling in their notebooks.
Alone they're harmless and keep to themselves.
But don't be fooled, their brains are a flurry of activity.
Put two or more of them together, and you'll wonder what the heck happened.
These "quiet ones" start talking, start plotting.
They've planned each other's brutal deaths....multiple times.
They've discussed the zombie apocalypse....and how they'd start it.
The end of the world has four backup plans....to ensure its demise.
And you can almost guarantee your death has been penciled in for next Tuesday.
So be careful, 'cause it's the quiet ones you have to watch out for.
contest entry- Broken BlossomsFor a long time, Mary Sunderland simply sat in her hospital bed, staring out the window. Outside of St. Jerome's the trees swayed in the wind, lazy and careless. The wind was warm, she figured, unable to actually venture out into it to see. There was a sense of pitiful weakness in the fact that all she could do was lie in bed and stare at the things around her. There was a vase of now-wilting flowers on the table beside her bed, flowers James had brought to her. It made her sad to think of the way she had treated him the last time he had come to visit, nearly a week ago.contest entry- Broken Blossoms4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"He only wants to make me happy," she thought forlornly, staring hard at pink tulips (her favorite, trust James to know that) that were beginning to dry up, their beautiful petals curling in on themselves. When they had first been placed there they had been healthy and vibrant, full of life and color but now time had taken its toll, and they were little more than dying, faded reminders of what they had once been
