HOW DO YOU HANDLE "ARTIST'S BLOCK?"We've all heard of "Writer's Block." What about artists? There are times when you just can't seem to get a drawing right. What can you do about it? Well, some people will counsel you to take your mind off of work, do some exercise, or go for a walk along the beach. Yeah, right, like getting sand in my shoes is going to put me in a better mood. And besides, if that worked, there would beHOW DO YOU HANDLE "ARTIST'S BLOCK?"3 years ago in Personal More Like This
throngs of frustrated cartoonists wandering the beach in search of ideas.
And as if the self-imposed pressure isn't enough, there are usually deadlines looming! So I do exactly what they tell you not to do when you're stuck, and it works for me: I keep drawing over and over and over again, until I get it right. I may try a different approach, or a new pose, but aside from dashing into the kitchen for a refill on my bathtub-sized cup of black coffee, I keep my you-know-what in my chair at my drawing desk and plow forward. I figure that the Gods-Of-Frustration, who are having fun toying with my brain, wil
Updates and stuffHey y'all!Updates and stuff4 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. I have a big commission project that I need to get underway AND two upcoming weeks of red-eye shifts at the office. The commission has a tight deadline that I really want to meet so I might not be able to pump out many UBCs this month. Sorry. I'll do my best not to have any Serious Engineering pages late.
2. The SE website is completely up to date!
Thanks again to BloodyWilliam for all his hard work!
3. Patreon patrons who donate as little as $1 a month are now privy to the weekend screen shares! Yaaay!!! Oh, and to those who are already patrons, I'll be hosting them at a later time so it will be easier for everyone. Also, seeing how the live UBC drawing did so well, we'll be making that a regular thing
4. After I'm done with the big commission I'm itching to do a really shitty gag comic along the same lines of "Adventures of John and Dave" or "Sweet Bro
last requestout of curiosity, if you were on death row, what would your last request be?last request2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have to think long and hard about mine would be, cause you gotta take into account what's reasonable. I probably would want to meet jimmy urine, or maybe something more simple like be able to build my dream box to but my ashes in when cremated.
the reason I ask is cause I just read a story about a prison in ohio denying a man on death row to donate his heart and kidney to his sick mother and sister. they didn't provide a reason for it, they just said no. I think that's kinda weird.
or maybe i'd ask to just stuff myself with the best desserts. if i'm gonna be executed, may's well pig out, right?
why pets are more than petsAsapientmachine shared this article with me. it's truly touching.why pets are more than pets2 years ago in Personal More Like This
when you have a pet, some people don't think of them as anything more than just animals. but humans are animals too, we just speak a different language and have a different culture. having a pet can be a blessing, and the bond can become so strong, it's part of your family. not just dogs either. cats have saved their owner's lives, and I even read about a rat saving its owner's life as well. a human/animal relationship is just as magical as say a dog adopting ducklings, a cat friends with a mouse, and hamster friends with a snake, and even a lioness adopting a puppy. humans have been known to have strong bon

A charmer in armor, is the charmer that charms her, she feels so warmer in his arms.
He's smiling as the charmer charms her into removing her armor; no need for alarm.
completely senseless, she is defenseless, as he charms her more.
No more or less stressed when he caresses her tresses, charming her right to the core
His tail coils tighter as her breath grows lighter... the one voice she can hear is his.
He would hold her closer and closer, right before he bites her, that is.
Bite! But there is no fight. Everything is alright, tonight.
Her face holds no fright, and he smiles in delight at the charmed who's life has been cut with no knife.
So she knows she will die, her soul to the sky, but still in her eyes is a smile.
For she has been charmed by this Snake-Charmer, but is only another victim worth his while.
(Oh yea. Go here- :iconmintchocolatebunnies: -das me. )

If you like this article, please add it to your favorites to help spread the love for the art and artists within.
A month ago, I posted a poll asking my watchers/visitors to show me 3 artists they felt could use more love. They *were* allowed to pick themselves, too. Anyhow, the response was so large that I have to break the feature into two parts. To see the original poll, click here.

like my past lovers
dressed from head
to toe in black,
the tarmac, pink
dry five petaled flowers
that i don't
care much for now,
an empty womb
a crypt, the darkness
jumping ship again,
his bones soft
a vein, a needle
and a weight
against my chest,
the golden sun and silver
moon, the beds
inside saint peter's
(they sound like my heart in the night)

Ummm blah blah blah you should go buy a print or a shirt or a pinup something blah blah. To those ASKING, I don't really want to sell prints from the RT mod issues en masse, aside from the cover (which will be listed tonight, along with business cteno and maybe some other stuff!) However, once I finish another drawing or two, I will hold an auction for single edition prints of the ENTIRE mod issue, AND reward art. That's a LOT of ONE TIME EVER PRINTS!
Anyway... blah blah blah...
There will ALSO be a NEW RT out THIS WEEK! ALREADY!!! It's more of a booster pack. It will be mostly colored SKETCHES, as opposed to more polished work, and will be like five bucks, and have lots of monster girl OCs! and tentacles and stuff. You know the drill!
More blah blah...
Thanks for everything lately, though, everyone. I've been super swamped and busy, and money has been a little tight. And I'm trying to make time for fun stuff and all... Something I SORELY NEED.

We have a problem!Yes, we have a serious problem. Stephen Harper, the Prime Minster of Canada, is putting a pipeline from the Alberta Oil Sand to the coast of British Columbia so he can trade oil with China. That doesn't sound too bad right? Wrong! The Northern Gateway Pipeline would run through, the Great Bear Rainforest, the last intact temperate rainforest on Earth. On top that, 2000 tankers a year would have to navigate through the dangerous BC coast which has not allow oil tanker on their coasts since the Exxon Valdez oil spill fearing a repeat of the incident. A spill from one of these tankers could release half of the oil released during the Deepwater Horizons oil spill which would devastate salmon fishier along the coast as well as aboriginal communities and the tourism industry. Spread the word, even if you are not Canadian. The Spirit Bear Rainforest is just as much mine as it is yours; it belongs to the global community. Save Canada the heart break that people along the Gulf suffers, say no tWe have a problem!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

You can keep up with this stuff as it happens over on my tumblr! But it has lots of other junk like me ranting about my ongoing battle with a mysterious anon neighbour who keeps complaining to the council about my cockerel, and stories about my other pets.

BYOOLokay, I was proposed with the question concerning my story narrations being posted to youtube, and I was asked, "are you gonna post BYOOL?" in case you're not aware, BYOOL, or "best years of our lives" was a ZADR fanfic I started when I was 19, and was really fond of because I was young and stupid. now I'm old and stupid, and there's a difference. XD however, after much thought and many readings over BYOOL, I realized that I did not like it, that it was too OOC. and I didn't like zim being the seme like I thought I did. that's when chapter one of PWF came in, and my view on ZADR was officially changed. in fact, BYOOL isn't even finished, and never will be by me. I've had people ask if they could write an ending, and I say go ahead as long as I'm credited for the actual story. I'm actually interested how people could make this story worth something. I know a lot of you like it and don't understand why reitanna despises it so much, but if you saw it through my tired, withered eyes, you'dBYOOL2 years ago in Personal More Like This

i feel like a targetI feel like a target,i feel like a target2 years ago in Personal More Like This
because people treat me like one.
Every chance they get,
they make me feel like I'm gone.
They don't respect me.
If they didn't hate me, they wouldn't even know I'm there.
I always feel so lonely,
but they don't even care.
I feel like a target.
Even though they treat me like I'm not there.
No one tries to listen.
No one even cares.
So why should i bother,
try to make them see that I'm there?
I feel like a target.
But that doesn't mean I am.
It doesn't mean anything,
because I know what I am.
I Am Not A Target.
And no one can tell me differently.
