Still sick but hanging out with the Storyteller.Heya all, just thought I'd update from last week. Haha, I should have known better than to put up that previous journal entry on April fools day.

Thank you so much for your kind messages. It really cheered me up to read all your well wishes. I will try and get back on track with dA asap and thank people for fanarts and fanfictions. You've really been making my days happy ^__^
I've been ill for just over a month now, I think this is the longest I've been ill but I'm on the mend and not in so much pain now, so fingers crossed my chest will clear up soon. Bleh, I feel old XD
Speaking of which, I've been immersing myself in nostalgia for both work and free time. If you were a child of the 80's you might remember the Jim Henson series, The Storyteller. An absolutely incredible display of classy, incredible puppet horror and culture. Seriously, this show scared the bejeesus out of me when I was younger but I loved it and I'm so happ

Every good feeling deserves an ode, a dedication for how great they make us. This world is an "ocean of souls": we all meet, share our feelings and realize we all are connected in a way. Today I offer you to feel it in your own skin and be rewarded for that.
The main goal is to shake DeviantArt with good vibrations, so let's make it epic!! With all the problems around the world and the media scaring us with terrible words saying we are heading to a global catastrophe, it's time
Song Lyrics MemeStep 1: Put your iPod/MP3 player or iTunes on random.Song Lyrics Meme1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Step 2: Post the first line(s) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. (I took out any instrumental songs, natch, as well as any song where the title is uttered in the first line, so it's not entirely the first 20 songs that came up.)
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from. Those guessing the songs should post in the comments or shoot me an e-mail.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly and post the title in bold after the stricken song when it is guessed.
Step 5: (for those guessing the songs) If you look up the lyrics on Google or any other search engine, that's called cheating, so don't do it!

If you chose to join us at the summer camp we will be going to Neverland and you will need to fill out and return the permission slip below. There are 2 camps on the island and we would like to keep the numbers of students in each as even as possible. Therefor, the students who send in their slips first are more likely to get their preferred camp.
I wish to attend Camp Neverland for the month of August. I would prefer to be placed at and I understand that I may not be placed at my preferred camp.
(To send in a premisison slip, either comment here or note the group. Do a slip for each character attending.)

Being a Commission Artist part 1I often get messages from other artists who are looking into doing commission work themselves although they're not sure where to start. I don't claim to be an expert in being a commission artist, although I have been accepting commissions since 2000, so I do have a bit of experience under my belt. So I thought that I'd actually write down some stuff that may or may not help other people who want in on the gigBeing a Commission Artist part 14 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've got a bit to say about this, so I'll be divvying it up in several parts!
Part One: Making sure you're ready to take on commission work.
We've heard all sorts of horror stories regarding commissioning artists on the net, both from the commissioner and the commissionee's side. Here we'll tackle how to look at yourself to make sure that you do NOT end up being the villain in those horror stories.
Yes, the extra cash is tempting. You're gonna do what you like to do and get paid for it! Simple, right? Wrong! You will find that as a commission artist, there will

Welcome one and all to Camp Neverland! Above you will find a map of our fine establishment, with the more prominent areas marked for your convenience. Use it as you will, it's for your benefit~ Now lets get down to the fun stuff. Below you will find starter prompts for both camps. These can be used to start rps, give drawing or writing ideas and just fuel your imagination! Each camp has their own starter though, so make sure you check the camp roster so you know which team you're on! In addition to the prompts we're going to start our first event which is a team building exercise!
First Event: Team Design
Each team has had a colour chosen for them by their Student Council Leaders. This is your colour for the remainder of camp, so wear it loud and wear it proud! Each team needs a logo however, something that when the big competitions come up that they can wave proudly on their flags and display on their camp issued shirts! That said, the leaders decided to make this a

Moving On It's funny-- a year ago on this day I wrote a journal entry called 'Feeling Like September'. I like to go back sometimes and see what things were happening in my life back when I wrote them. It brings up the same feelings I had back then; it's nostalgic. This time last year I was filming 'Death Note: Another Note', a video which has been banned in most countries due to music content. I have to try and have it unlocked, but I'm still feeling pissy about it so I'm going to wait a little while longer.Moving On1 year ago in Personal More Like This
September is definitely in the air. We had a strangely (and wonderfully) cool summer this year, something which I was very thankful for. I'm not ready for this summer to end, even though it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. For me summer is not only an escape, it's also a time of creativity and productivity. Some personal life events overwhelmed me this summer, and I haven't done many things I wanted to do. I had a lot

As of now, my brain is too fried to write up a proper journal entry about our volcano GARventure, and one of my usual event reports (as you can see on the right side of my journal) about Cosplay Mania, but I'd like to take this chance to share a part of our lecture of sorts at the Cosmania cosplay workshop last Sunday.
China snowpeachdrop, Kat moonlightflight, El rosiael and I were invited to talk about general cosplay planning, like fabric selection, wig styling, cosplay makeup and photography. My friends might post the other parts, but for now here is our silly guide about posing for cosplay photos, and convention etiquette. The actual presentation was actually longer, and with lots more examples, but here is a condensed rundown of what we talked about, fo

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But
