death vigil out in julydeath vigil out in july7 months ago in Personal More Like This
so, this july i am starting death vigil, published by image/top cow. it will be a monthly series limited to three 8-issue arcs, so there is a definitive ending. with this i have learned some of the things about publishing independent comics, and i am planning a video with some tips after i summarize my experiences. hopefully it will prove helpful for others to get their stuff published
but apparently rule 1 is promote preorders. preorders are crucial for independent books as they define the print runs, and are crucial to the sucess of the book.. so.. as my far more experienced friends told me to do....
death vigil is preorderable ...pretty much in any place or webstore that carries US comics.
you can find an extensive preview to issue 1 and much more here

what about ravine? ron marz assured me that he will be
Is possible to travel?...and perhaps I thought it wasn't possible.Is possible to travel?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
On this journal I'd like to clarify a few things about travels and the truth with it.
So, let's start from very basic questions or comments from people which I get very often on dA: you are so lucky to be able to afford traveling!, I so wish I were as lucky as you being able to travel or How you can afford? You must have decent finances and the time!
Didn't you happen to think like that? If you did, so that is just a stereotype.
On almost every question or their comment where I explain what it is really and how it's working - it is a big opposite side of mirror what they think. After hearing they get usually shocked, but more in positive way.
Here we go.
Firstly, there is a big difference being a traveler and a tourist.
Secondy, there is a huge difference to travel via third party (travel agencies, school trips, going for trips with a friend, family, organizations, etc.) and lonely, self organized travels. And where you

The Used Furniture Review are now accepting submissions, and are also in the process of looking for some new columnists. Now bear with me here, I know it sounds like I'm sending you to write for a niche magazine about futons, but they're an online only literature magazine that features a plethora of writing, including Kate Eisenberg's Famous Battle Cries column.
The webzine can be found here, with a handy top bar for navigation so you can see what kind of thing they have available to you.
There is no deadline for submission or columnist applications, all they're looking for is, well, everything. From the columnist side of things, they're looking for:

Some might not know who Berlusconi is: he's a media tycoon, 3 time Prime Minister of Italy and is generally regarded as the face of political vice and corruption in Europe.
Many won't know who Paxman is: he's the brick that the BBC throw at people like Berlusconi. His questions being so blunt that it's nigh on impossible to wriggle out of answering them without looking more of a prat than you did at the start.
I'm pretty sure that Paxman also hates that fact that you, whoever you are, share the same planet as him:

Some rumors say that someone expelled him out of the school... Just because he was very strict and seemed to be cold towards his students... I've also witnessed him like that from those past Mondays I've been... So sometimes I've been calling him "The man who wore the crown, Ice King..." or whatever he may be... Huhuhuh... I swear he was sometimes scary back then but he was very kind at heart... There's also a reason why he was like this, for he opened up himself that he was alone... YA HEARD?!

1. Are you highly confused by the plot in romantically apocalyptic http://romanticallyapocalyptic.wikia.com/wiki/Romantically_Apocalyptic_Wiki?
Perhaps you think there is no plot? When did you become most confused?
2. Can you explain all the things in the comic? Can you summarize the plot in RA for those who are confused?

Is anything working right now? :IThere seems to be a glitch that won't let a majority of my watchers get notified of my updates. I noticed this after posting and realizing there is significantly reduced traffic. I logged into my other account :iconknites: and sure enough, the newest update did not appear in the other account's inbox. Some people have reported receiving the update, while many others reported not receiving it. I decided to make sure and made a poll asking people if they received the lasted drawing in their inbox, and guess what? There's another glitch affecting the polls so most people aren't getting notified of the poll either... =_= Or at least the newest poll is not showing up in my other account either.

My personal online psychiatrist is making me narrate this nonsense down on the chip embedded in my tooth in hopes that someday I may be cured of my "incompatibility" with ANNET, or at least possibly reduce the "mild psychosis caused by work-related stress" as she calls it.
I know that it's not going to happen. The problem is something genetic and while those goons in the genetics department would love to get their machines into my brain, I prefer the lack of sleep and headaches to lobotomy.
I seen the reports on their test subjects: "total neural shut-down", "subject resists integration with the net, increasing the signal strength lead to damage to the 85% of the frontal lobe."
Call me old fashioned, but I like my brain the way it is.

Always Low Prices......Always......Always...AlwaysI hate Wal-Mart. I really do. So I wait in line for 15 minutes because the lady is not scanning the bar code right, whatever. So She tells the old man that the total was like $75. And then the old guy tells her that he has to go to his truck to grab his card. All he had in his wallet was a 10 dollar bill. I mean really...really...REALLY. Does he think that the 50 boxes of prunes and bran flavored tapioca was going to cost him 10 bucks! So he goes to his truck at an astonishing .0001 miles per hour. He had a walker for gods sake. Then the lady behind the counter looks at me and gives me a shrug. That shrug translated to "I know you have been standing there, but you are going to have to wait 30 more minutes.....because I am a moron."Always Low Prices......Always......Always...Always2 years ago in Personal More Like This

We are all different, but aren't we eventually deep down all the same? Maybe you believe that, maybe you don't. Sometimes life has a way of forcing you to believe things that you never thought you would - and making you meet people that normally would never belong in your circle of friends. But for one reason, that maybe you don't even know at first, you end up together.

I'm not raspil...nor am I trying to be, given that raspil does a solid job of being raspil herself. But I think dA needs something like ScreamPrompts to kick everyone's ass up a notch, hence this group.I'm not raspil2 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
Read more about what's happening with ScreamPrompts here.
The first prompt will be up December 1. I want to make sure everyone has a chance to write for Scream before the end of the year, as raspil is planning to put an anthology together and, on top of the awesome you're already guaranteed to be a part of, the proceeds will be going to charity.
How is SadPrompts going to work?
I'm not a genius at prompts, so I welcome feedback on what type of challenges you'd like to see. Of course, if your complaint is "I struggled with this," I reserve the right to snicker in your general direction. That's the point. Now, if your complaint is "this is too easy," I'm all ears.
The prompts will be written for short prose (500-5,000 words).
Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise
