Thanks for the adventure!
It's been a crazy ride and I've had a lot of fun being part of it all. I've met amazing artists, wonderful friends, and some of the most talented and creative people I've ever known. I've had the privilege of collaborating with many inspiring people and even got to realize the creation of a self-published art book. I even made it to a convention and got the whole vendor's experience. But most of all, I felt so much love and positivity from all around me, encouraging me to keep going and inspiring me to be a better person.
I won't pretend that there wasn't an ugly side to this experience. It wouldn't be truthful to deny the rampant misogyny and hostility that I've seen from a great number of MLP fans. There is conflict in my heart as I want so badly to assume the best of everyone. It hurts deeply to have that assumption betrayed. I can no longer bear the thought of having my work associated with that side of the fandom.
The Russian Sleep ExperimentRussian researchers in the late 1940s kept five people awake for fifteen days using an experimental gas based stimulant. They were kept in a sealed environment to carefully monitor their oxygen intake so the gas didn't kill them, since it was toxic in high concentrations. This was before closed circuit cameras so they had only microphones and 5 inch thick glass porthole sized windows into the chamber to monitor them. The chamber was stocked with books, cots to sleep on but no bedding, running water and toilet, and enough dried food to last all five for over a month.The Russian Sleep Experiment2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

So yeah, last week was a blast of nostalgia and memories, mixed with modern awesomeness, all provided by the wonderful stories and visuals created by the Walt Disney Animation Studios !
I’m glad I was able to put all together for said instance almost on the last minute LOL And I had a lot fun doing it, discovering and rediscovering many classics I barely remember or actually was never able to watch before; that was something that honestly, felt like a goal accomplished for me XD
This marathon also helped me to understand the many achievements, yet also misconceptions around, the WDA Studios…
Just to make the point: the idea of Disney only making fairy tales is not true, it’s only what they’re best know by… but in fact, there’s no absolute prominence from said subject related to other ones they’ve worked on;

The whole of the Newbie Artist Training Grounds II hosted on Equestria Daily
by Phoebe Kalinowski was done on the final day of August 2012, which is also my birthday month.
Hooves has driven us crazy yes? Of course, drawing with a hoof or mouth is not easy too.
Maybe by now, all of those who participated has gotten used to it.
Each achieved a goal and at least tried hard to finish a single day of it.
I haven't given up even though. I made through all even if I skipped days and worked hard until the end.
The purpose of me joining the Newbie Artist Training Grounds is to get back the style I do as I have drawn on paper.
Even though each picture looks right, I actually tried experimenting with my thoughts all around.
Even though it takes only a few minutes, a lot of errors I tried to cover.
All of it was worth it.

This Thursday, April 5, Bento Box will be hosting a silent art auction at the Animation Guild in Burbank CA to benefit storyboard artist Joey Adams and his family. I do not yet have the pleasure of knowing Joey, but the Los Angeles animation community is really rallying around him and his family's current crisis trying to save the life of one of their little boys--- only a couple years after tragically losing their 16-month-old daughter to a similar condition.

My Opinions: Spongebob SqurepantsThis is a review I've been planning on for a while and because I hadn't prior watched any because it started in 1999 it came out around the time I was just in highschool (only cartoon I still watched some of at this point was Johnny Bravo) and so has no nostalgic value to me. Further more I need to add just how influential this show and is deems the last of the "classic" nicktoons, so given this and the fact it's ran so long I chose to see the first 6 episode of every season except 8 for which I could only find 2 episodes of so that I could review the show as a whole and not just it's peak. So enough interlude it's time to see if Spongebob holds up to older more cynical eyes and see just how kind time has been to it.My Opinions: Spongebob Squrepants2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I honestly found the show to start off on the right foot as it imediately gave me a classic Nicktoons feel (classic nicktoons been a huge influence on my work work) which shouldn't come as any surprise given that it was created by Rocko writer Stephen Hillenburg. I must sa

i was really confused but then i realized i was wearing my shadow hat
then i was thinking like "o h ok i get this" and just told him "yeahh man!!" because im very socially awkward and didnt know what to say
he then was like "ah my daughter loves sonic, shes got the racing game with sonic and his blue brother and.." and he kept tellin me about all stars racing TF and such
and then it hit me
he thought sonic was shadow and shadow was sonic, and that they were brothers.
and holy shit that just made me really really happy. im ntot sure why but it did, maybe it was that he was friendly enough to talk to me about and ALSO that he was being supportive of his daughter and liking what she liked, or the fact that he got them mixed up was really cute, like u tried ur doin gr8 keep being perfect, or.. ??? im not sure
he may have also been testing me because he was like "yeah sonic and shadow look a lot ali
