This weekend I painted a large mural in Chinatown!I love painting large and it is always an honor to be asked by a wonderful organization to paint at their space and represent their community visually. This week I was asked to paint a piece in Oakland Chinatown at Lincoln Square. An amazing community center the has droves of smiling people enjoying the giant ship like playgrounds, the expansive b-ball courts, and sword fighting in the lawn bowling court, to name a few. The ages ranges from 1 to 100+ and all the folks were super stoked to see this painting in process. My good friend Christopher Mackessy, ( who took most of the photos for the deviantART Gear Shop,) is also a painter, As well as a teacher. He procured the walls through the community center with the blessings and we spent the last 2 days painting. Many of his students came out and we fitted them with brushes and oversized tee shirts and they went to town with our instruction. With the help of these smiling pint sized 8 year old Picassos we crushed it with a mixtureThis weekend I painted a large mural in Chinatown!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Dark Shadows and Frankenweenie!Hey Everybody!!!Dark Shadows and Frankenweenie!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So as some of you know, Tim Burton already has new movies planned out for 2012 and he's starting to film it!!! There are only 2 movies that I've found trailers for, Dark Shadows and Frankenweenie!!!! For those of you that don't know these movie's plot summary, he's a preview:
Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) is a rich man, but has no heart so a witch makes him into a vampire. this whole rich but thoughtless thing reminds me of beauty and the beast.
Original movie was a live-action short, this time they animated it. Frankenweenie is about this young boy, Victor, that loses his dog after it was hit by a car. Missing him so much, Victor uses lightning to bring him back to life! So sweet...

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Infinitum Preview 1It's here: http://sdrv.ms/15m1nI5Infinitum Preview 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
Keep in mind this is a preview and not everything works!
If you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you can use infinitum as it is. However, if you are using Windows 8, you will need to create a toolbar on your taskbar to make space for the start button (see here for example: http://www.askvg.com/how-to-enable-good-old-start-button-orb-and-start-menu-in-windows-8/ ). Windows XP should use a theme with a larger taskbar (here's a good theme: http://fav.me/d5bocyw ).
If you cannot run this application, make sure you have .net 4.0 or higher installed on your computer.
I will try to make Infinitum more flexible in the next release as well as get more things to work

Oct 17, 2012 by techgnotic
Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"

Ok. Now i know what you are all going to chop this up to, so i'll just say it now. I'm not getting old, this world is getting dumber.
This new generation is basically ass leakage brewed in a rusty coffee maker with no cream and too much sugar. I'll start with music, since its probably where the common ground is for most of my supporters of this topic. What the fuck!? How is ANY. ANY OF THIS SHIT!! Considered to be good music? I grant that most of what i listen to my elders dont find too appealing. But at least it can be defined in a genre. When a song starts off with a bunch of whiny singing, continues with a techno beat, and ends with a rap verse. WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU CALL THAT!? The most confused person on the face of this earth! Dub-Step is whatever to me, seeing how its mainly DnB meets Industrial Techno. Not bad. Until you start classifying it as "ground breaking". All this SWAG and YOLO shit has to stop though.

Lupin III YSo I was at the yamaguchi flea market this weekend with mates and found volumes 1-10 of the 4th Lupin III comic series and a few volumes of the original.Lupin III Y7 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love the way MonkeyPunch draws, I always have. He has a wonderful sense of itself and blahbalhabbaklh.
So in 1998 or so, a series was released in japan called Lupin III Y, drawn by someone other than mr Monkey (but i think written by him?)
I saw it at the flea market and thought 'i'll 'ave that'.
I bought it mostly because i didnt own it and kind of wanted to see how it was treated. The art is bizarre.
It is more than generic looking 'manga' and devolves into a rather tragic looking state for most of it.
Then more tragic is the points where the poor artist kind of....creates a bad fanart kind of look and....yeh.
It smells the same! but it also smalles a bit stale and stagnant. The original manga has such great fluidity to the inking and general drawing and posing.
not so much for the poor lad drawing lupin Y.

He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.

OC's informationENG:OC's information2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's time to put in order my OC's (only the personal ones).
It's all because of the one reason: one character can't harmoniously combine all the trash, which sometimes creates my brain in my dreams or in reality. Better to make a few different forms than to blame everything on the heap.
1.NdC the gray wolf stays with me, of cause. But it's need to bring the more information about her (people from the side may not understand the nuances). Nonetheless, I think it's needless to say she is a kind of witch x) And this gives her an ability of "transformation".
2. Hyena, whose creation was provoked by the development of the qualities of my nature, stays with me. But she'll take a "summer pelt" of NdC (with a few little changes), because this pelt has no response in me. The summer NdC will not exist anymore, only the gray one.
And I still hadn't came up with her name D:
3. Karra is Karra, stays the same. Likes Lingrimm, cemeteries and some kinds of perversions %)))

Looney Tunes Back FOR REVEEEEENGE !Now I am here about one of the greatest and most underrated movies of all time . A movie that I liked as a kid but that I grew to LOVE as an adult after much repeated viewings . I am talking about Joe Dante's "Looney Tunes: Back in Action" or as I like to call it "HOW THE FUCK DO PEOPLE NOT PRAISE THIS ? DID WE WATCH THE SAME TUNES OR WHAT ?!". Seriously the cons are cosmically minimal compared to the pros and can be chalked up as nothing more than petty nitpicking if you stop to think about it .Looney Tunes Back FOR REVEEEEENGE !3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Taking place in what is essentially the same universe as Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the movie begins with both Daffy Duck having just about enough of eating the bullets for the rabbit who is basically the golden goose of the studio . Unfortunately his ultimatum (" I am afraid the WB will have to choose between this beautiful matinée idol or THIS miscreant perpetrator of low burlesque...") kind of
